Frustrated... need value vaca w/sun, beach and childcare!

Jump to last reply

Well... I just spent HOURS and hours researching vacation options in the Caribbean and after excrutiating analysis, I decided on Beaches T&C. Unfortunately, DH is unhappy w/the price tag ($9K)! This will be our first family vacation w/our 2yr old son, so childcare of some sort (Kids Club or nanny/sitter) is absolutely key. My husband will soon return from overseas deployment, so we're looking for good, simple beach fun to reconnect as a couple and as a family. We've never been to the Caribbean, but I'm leery of Jamaica and we've already done Cancun/Tulum/Akumal. AI's are not our bag, either, but "free" diving and childcare were inticing options. I'd be indebted for any/all suggestions! We're looking for 7-10 days in a suite (separate sleeping area for kiddo), plus air from Raleigh for $6K or less. Am I dreaming?
Thanks in advance!
