Turkey 2 Weeks in April While Pregnant

Jump to last reply

So my husband and I want to take a fab vacation in April before our baby comes in July. I'll be about 6 months pregnant... so we aren't looking to get crazy moving around a ton. We want to visit for 2 weeks- thinking about Istanbul, a beach town and one other location/experience? Any suggestions of hotels, b&b's , restaurants etc would be greatly appreciated. Or any additional suggestions. We're totally into food, my husband is into drinking, both love the beach, we're kinda lazy- we prefer to get to know a place, the people, the food and the culture rather than run around checking off tourist spots from a check list. We live in NYC, so we get "city" life everyday. We mainly want a nice mix of things to see, stroll around, hang on the beach, hit a spa, take a cooking class, possibly a mini cruise or boat ride, shopping, eating and taking it all in. We are also open to a tour guide- a day to get all the good info from a native. I've found it very hard to nail down our trip to 3 places as most of the itineraries have too many stops for my tranquil Taurus disposition. Clearly we don't want to get too close to the mess is Syria.
Please help us out with
1. your itinerary suggestions- top 3 spots including a beach location (we're big fans of TULUM if that helps)
2. Must try restaurants
3. cool hotels & b&b's
4. spa recs (or other physical/spiritual experiences)
5. Maybe the best hospitals (just in case hahaha)
6. Any other cool things you think this big bellied Mama would love!

Thanks so much!
