The Dominican Republic

All-inclusive resorts can be a convenient and affordable way for families to travel. Booking independently is very manageable when travelling to the Dominican Republic as the country’s small size means no long bus or plane rides. All-inclusive resorts have the best child-specific facilities and services, from high chairs in the restaurants to childcare, baby clubs and baby/ toddler. Not all resorts cater to families with young children (some even have adults only policies) so do some research and ensure that your resort has all of the essentials that you need and that it is baby/ toddler friendly.
