Beaches Boscobel, Jamaica

Water babies will be in seventh heaven at the all-inclusive Beaches Boscobel in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, with its sandy shores and super cool waterslides.

On Runaway Bay, an hour from Montego Bay and just seventeen miles west of Ocho Rios on Jamaica’s north shore, Franklyn D. Resort’s all-inclusive vacation packages are an ideal way to experience Jamaica as a family. The Yellow Bird Kids Club hosts daily adventures and activities, from treasure hunts to tie-dye to limbo parties on the beach. Sleep in spacious one to three bedroom suites, snorkel the calm waters out front, and enjoy not having to bother with bills for meals, beverages, and a bevy of games and activities. Among the perks at this all-inclusive resort is a full-time nanny, eager to engage and on-hand to play throughout the day.

When this self-dubbed “exclusive all-inclusive” in the Dominican Republic recently expanded its children’s offerings to admit toddlers to its Kid Zone clubhouse, Paradisus Punta Cana upped the ante for new families like ours. Also attractive is easy drop-in/drop-out childcare and thoughtful programs designed for babies and preschoolers that are part of the package. Keeping busy is breezy with a dizzying selection of recreational activities like horseback riding, Ping-Pong, batting cages, and beach volleyball. Then, there’s kicking back on Bali beds and thatched umbrellas on the white sand beach.
