Trav­el­ing with tod­dlers can be stress­ful, but th­ese lo­cales take the pres­sure off with kids’ clubs, ac­tiv­i­ties just for mi­nis, and more.

Fancy Care

A Cpr-trained nanny can spend up to eight hours a day with your fam­ily or just the kid­dos at the all-in­clu­sive

Franklyn D. Re­sort, in Run­away

Bay, Ja­maica. “Our nanny did it all,” says Car­rie Bur­rows, a mom of three in Phoenix. “She picked up our kids af­ter break­fast and took them to swim. She tie-dyed T-shirts, played games, and led them on a hike to col­lect shells.”

Mommy & Me

You and your lit­tle love can en­joy pedis side by side at

Azul Beach Re­sort by Karisma

in Riviera Maya, Mex­ico. Ba­bies are treated to chef-made purees, us­ing in­gre­di­ents from a nearby green­house, and you can bring your babe to a moms’ morn­ing fit­ness class. When you’re ready for “me time,” drop off kids ages 4 and up at Azuli­tos Play House for games and piñata mak­ing. Space for your Squad

Space for Your Squad

Last year, At­lantis Re­sort, in the

Ba­hamas, opened The Co­ral, a fam­ily-cen­tric ho­tel with a kids’ concierge who can help co­or­di­nate your reser­va­tions and sign up lit­tle ones ages 3 and over for a chance to feed the fish. The re­sort’s kids’ club is as big as some chil­dren’s mu­se­ums. Its life-size doll­house, Lego-build­ing area, and kitchen with cup­cakedec­o­rat­ing classes will be hits!

The thatched ca­banas at Azul Beach Re­sort are a few steps from the ocean.
