Armie Hammer is in the Cayman Islands, a source tells PEOPLE, where he's planning to reunite with his children amid his divorce from Elizabeth Chambers.

On Tuesday, the actor, 34, posted a photo to his Instagram Stories, showing his hand holding a drink on the beach. "Good things on the horizon," he captioned the shot. "5 days of quarantine left."

All travelers entering the Cayman Islands must quarantine for a 14-day period, per government guidelines, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chambers, 38, is currently in the Cayman Islands with their kids, daughter Harper Grace, 6, and son Ford Douglas Armand, 3½. The day after Christmas, Chambers posted sweet photos of her children meeting Santa Claus at their hotel.

The former couple had previously quarantined with their family at the start of the pandemic in the Cayman Islands.

Hammer recently spent Thanksgiving stateside while Chambers remained in the Cayman Islands with their kids.

Chambers filed for divorce in July, seeking primary physical custody and joint legal custody of their two children. A source previously told PEOPLE, "These are crazy times with COVID-19, shutting schools down in L.A. and Elizabeth just wants the kids to have a normal experience."

In October, Hammer filed for joint custody of his children and requested that Chambers, 38, return to the U.S. to arrange a custody schedule.

In legal documents obtained by The Blast, Hammer's lawyers said the former couple "elected to stay with their children temporarily in the Cayman Islands where the pandemic appeared to be under greater control." When the actor returned to L.A. in July, though, "Elizabeth and the children remain in the Cayman Islands and Armie has not seen the children in several months now."

But a source later told PEOPLE: "After filing the injunction, Armie backed off so the kids could still attend school in person in the Grand Caymans and not be in front of screens. Everyone agreed that's what's best, especially with cases getting worse in the U.S."

In September, the actor told British GQ his separation from Chambers, whom he married in 2010, was a "seriously seismic event."

"I don't think you'll find anyone in the world who would ever say what I’m going through is an easy thing to go through," he told the outlet. "It’s not about whether it was your idea or not, or whether you think it’s the right idea or you don’t."

Hammer said when he and Chambers discussed their separation, they kept their focus on what was best for their kids.

"Elizabeth and I are two adults making this decision and the priority is how do we do it in a way that affects our children the least? Or, at least, how do we help get them through this in a way that mitigates as much consternation or fear or damage on their part," he said at the time.
