Tips for Child Care on Vacation

Are you the parent of toddlers or infants? If so, you probably doze off dreaming of white sandy beaches or cocktails by the pool. The thought of leaving a routine and actually finishing a sentence is no doubt very appealing. You might think you don’t have an option to enjoy a wonderfully relaxing vacation with toddlers, but the options are actually plentiful. Take these recommendations from the professionals and you’ll soon be en route to an amazing vacation destination.

All vacations require planning. Vacations with toddlers and infants require a special kind of planning. Consider taking advantage of the great deals offered by Groupon coupons and enjoy a resort stay at Experiencias Xcaret. If white sandy beaches, beckon, this might be your answer.  Explore the child care options available at the resorts. Some offer prearranged private child care services, some have drop in services available while others provide trained nannies for their guests. Remind yourself that your children will be fully engaged with making sand castle and cupcakes while you catch up on your reading list while soaking up the sound of the waves. This can be a win win. Another option is to bring child care on the vacation. Do you have a niece or nephew or trusted babysitter that blends well with your children? Bringing childcare on vacation will bring peace of mind.

Finally, check with the resort or hotel to confirm what equipment is available for guests with small children. Do they offer toddler beds or cribs? Are high chairs and stroller available? It’s best to confirm availability of these items prior to departure. It’s certainly preferable to have them upon arrival, but packing them for the trip should not be a large bother.

Once you’ve enjoyed a vacation with children and additional child care, you’ll not hesitate to repeat the experience in the future. Best of luck to you on your next true vacation!
