Custom Itinerary: Caribbean or Mexico Beach Resort with Childcare - My Family Travels

Q. Lisa R. from Brooklyn NY is looking for a tropical beach resort with infant care where parents and baby can relax and enjoy some beach time.

A.   Thank you for your request for information on tropical resorts for a week-long beach vacation with your toddler.  For the most restful experience, we highly recommend an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean or Mexico where you can find childcare for her 2-3 years age group.

For general information on vacations with infants and toddlers, you can visit the special Tiny Travelers section of that is devoted to travel with under-5s.

Additionally, we suggest you check out some of the resort reviews that our traveling families have contributed to the site.  Since you didn’t indicate a budget range for this trip, we will mention a few options:

Here’s a roundup of the top beach getaways for family vacations, but keep in mind that many of these are luxury properties. Please check the rates before you fall in love with what they offer your tiny traveler!

There’s also a roundup of the top family All-Inclusive Resorts which may suit your needs better. In that list, the Crown Paradise in Mexico has been popular with our community, and it’s well priced at most times of year.

The April week you chose is well before the Easter school break, so you should be able to find great weather and good airfares. You also might want to review JetBlue Vacations, as they have very good prices for air and hotel combined. They service many Caribbean destinations from New York. See JetBlue Vacations or more ideas.

If you find a deal that works for you at a resort we have not reviewed, please check our family travel bulletin boards. You can find more information or post a note there to ask for opinions about it. We have a well traveled community and they are usually happy to help out.
