1.) Book accommodations with separate sleeping areas
This is arguably the most important thing to consider when traveling with a baby. Consider this, if everyone is piled into one room you’ll likely have to go to sleep when your baby goes to sleep. If you want to watch a movie or have a conversation while your baby sleeps, it’s best to find accommodations that have separate sleeping areas.
We look for accommodations that offer one or two bedroom suites, instead of the standard hotel room with one or two beds. You will pay a little more for this convenience, but a good night’s sleep is worth it.
Lately we’ve turned to short-term apartment rentals because they are typically cheaper than hotels and offer all of the comforts of home. We look for centrally located apartments that provide fully stocked kitchens and laundry.
If you’re traveling with a baby stroller, look for accommodations that have an elevator or are located on the ground floor. Carrying your awkward stroller up several flights of stairs is not fun, especially in hot, tropical environments.
