Family vacations are always a fun and relaxing time and choosing the right destination and resort to take your family on vacation should be a fun process as well. Choices abound for families and now more than ever all-inclusive resorts are offering special services for those traveling with children and babies. The most popular family vacation spots are Disneyland (of course), Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean and the trick is finding the right all-inclusive family vacation package for your families unique needs and desires.
Many resorts offer special activities for kids and child-minding services but now several resorts cater specifically to kids and families with special themed events and activities as well as kid-friendly menu's to please the more 'picky' eaters in your family.
With locations in Mexico and the Caribbean, Beaches™ bills itself as a family all-inclusive resort and promises the 'ultimate family vacation in paradise' with Sesame Street activities.

They also offer Ultra-Nannies, Xbox activity centers and just about any activity you can think of to keep your little ones busy - and Mom and Dad happy.
A little more upscale, the Franklyn D Resort Pebbles™ in Jamaica also offers a personal Vacation Nanny™. Available during the day your personal Vacation Nanny takes care of everything while you relax and enjoy your vacation. They are even available for a small charge in the evenings.

Ask your travelTST.ca travel advisor about the programs and services available at the all-inclusive resort package you are interested in. Not all programs are available at every location so it is good to check with your agent before to avoid disappointment.
Family Vacation Travel Tips: What to bring
Bring your child’s own bottle of high-protection sun cream and after-sun cream as well as lotion or spray against insect bites (especially mosquitoes). Pack a small bag containing: cap, sunhat, sunglasses, beach sandals, sports shoes and socks (important for sports activities) and swimsuits. Make sure all your child’s things are marked, or bring a marking pen. For babies bring an adequate supply of bottles, wipes, diapers, formula and a favorite toy or cuddly.
