Seeking a Dream Vacation with My Children
Hi! Being that it is difficult for my husband and I to take a long vacation together (lack of overnight babysitting options) we decided that the kids would just have to come along. I am seeking a fun, affordable, tropical vacation, with lots of great things for kids to do. I want great weather and I want it to really feel like a vacation, is this possible? Does anyone have a great place that they have been with a group of kids (I have three - 7, 7, and 5) Thanks!
So What Happened?™
Hi..okay, I decided on Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, the Club Med. Not the cheapest, but sounds like a fun all inclusive. My next question is malaria pills. Has anyone ever traveled there and taken malaria pills? If I had not happened to go see the kids pediatrician I would never have known about this...thanks, you all have been really helpful!

We went to Beaches, Turks and Caicos. The kids LOVED the camps. They wouldn't even do anything with us. They even stayed for the night action. We checked up on them throughout the day to see if they wanted to sail with us etc. It was a no go. To much fun with the counselors and other kids. We even got to eat alone on some nights. I heard the Beaches in Jamaica was nicer. Check into it. My kids still rave about it. They were 7 and 5 at the time we went. My husband and I said that was the best vacation for us all. We even felt like we had one!

Why not a cruise???? I am a travel agent and would love to discuss the options with you! Your kids are the perfect age, and you and your husband will get some quality time together!

Last year my husband and I took the kids to the Club Med in Florida, it is GREAT for kids and for you too, because you drop the kids off at the camp and you do whatever you want, and the kids loved it !!! is in Sandpiper, FL

I don't know, but yeah I've seen the Sandal's Family vacation commercials and they always advertise babysitting at their resorts. I've wanted to take my daughter on a disney cruise ever since I had her... although people have told me that the disney ones are a waste of money, to go on a regualr cruise line that caters to kids.

I took my daughter (3) to the Dominican Republic. They have various all inclusive hotels that have "kids Clubs" and activities that keep them occupied all day and some nights. WE had a blast. Gordeous weather, good food, drinks, and wonderful enviroment.
