MIAMI, January 3, 2023 – The award-winning Acqualina Resort’s newly enhanced AcquaMarine Kid’s Club provides educational adventures for the resort’s youngest guests and is complimentary when booking accommodations at the luxury resort. The resort’s signature kids program has partnered with itavi, a childcare provider founded and run by Miamian Ayana Rodriguez, to bring a revolutionary ocean-themed program to South Florida. The AcquaMarine program presents young guests with fun, educational activities and adventures. Think: beach yoga, seashell-themed arts and crafts, a marine life puppet show, reading about Miami’s marine life and a cultural immersion in the form of a fun Spanish lesson. As children are on vacation and may not want to feel like they are in school, education is woven into fun pursuits. 

Offered on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm for ages 4 to 12 and midweek camps available upon request, AcquaMarine turns children’s Miami Beach resort experience into a learning camp adventure. AcquaMarine was designed and inspired by the ocean and all the sea life within. Children will become campers and have fun with learning and discovering a new appreciation, love and respect for the sea through hands-on educational activities.

Each day, children learn, discover and explore everything ocean related. The morning session often starts with an icebreaker, getting-to-know-you activity, then there’s some movement, then arts and crafts, then some more movement, and then some lunch.

Parents can have their children join the morning session (10am-12:30pm), book the afternoon session after lunch (1-4pm), or spend the whole day at the camp (10am-4pm). Active kids need healthy nourishment to fuel their day. Parents may pre-order from four pre-selected lunch options (at an additional cost), so even the finickiest of eaters can fill their bellies with a meal that makes them happy.

In addition to the new AcquaMarine program, children will also enjoy the state-of-the-art children's room, an all-in-one classroom, fun center, and learning lab, now featuring an open floor plan with light blue color tones reminiscent of the turquoise sea. The newly redesigned space has a play area including a cozy reading corner, new furniture, epoxy floors with glacier flakes, games, toys and accessories and a colorful sea life mural creating a great learning environment for a world of science and discovery. The new mural installation is brushed with a variety of brightly colored fish and Florida’s coral reefs. There's a chalkboard wall for the kids to draw on for the Acqualina kids' art gallery. The ceiling was specially designed creating an underwater effect further incorporating the marine biology theme.

AcquaMarine is for ages 4 to 12 and complimentary when booking accommodations at Acqualina. A lunch option is available at a cost. Subject to availability, reservations are easy to make and only require 24-hours advance notice. For more information and reservations, visit
