When I first started Have Baby Will Travel, my goal was a tad lofty – to be the Trip Advisor for the travel with baby and toddler set. Had I known then how much work this would be, I might not have done this at all, so it appears as though when starting a new venture, ignorance is bliss!
As a new parent, I trusted fellow parents’ opinions about baby care and parenting issues much more so than most “experts”, and I found most family travel pieces online read more like press releases, or else they were clearly not written for families with babies and toddlers in mind.
The trip report section of Have Baby Will Travel has not developed or expanded as big or as quickly as I had hoped, but when a review does come in, it’s very exciting!
I had the pleasure of visiting Azul Beach on a press trip to the Riviera Maya a few years ago. We were only there for the afternoon, but I found myself wishing we were staying there! While it does not have a baby club, nannies and/or babysitting can be arranged, and baby care and baby gear packages are included and easily arranged. It’s minutes from Cancun’s airport, but miles away from the body shots and thumping nightclubs (not that there’s anything wrong with that ;))
I’m very grateful to Shweta for sharing her experience of her first family vacation with her 18-month-old daughter – please enjoy her review of Azul Beach Hotel in Puerto Morelos, Mexico!
