Travel with baby?
My wife and I go to PDC once or twice a year - usually staying at Hotel plaza or Colibri on 10th. This year we have decided to complicate things. We have talked my parents, sister, brother in-law and 2 nephews into coming with us. We also added a new baby boy to the family 9 months ago. It used to be that all we needed were 2 backpacks, diving gear and plane tickets - we would just wander around until we found a hotel, etc. Baby adds a whole lot more into the mix. Unfortunately we will be staying at the Mayan Palace this year. My brother in law agreed to go if we would stay there. I have a couple of baby related questions and any help would be greatly appreciated.
1. Baby food - We really don't want to cart 10 days of baby food from Ohio. Anyone know if Sam's or Chedraui has a consistent supply of jar baby food- pref. Gerber.
2. we usually take a collectivo from the airport to PDC and then the bus from PDC to airport, Most of the collectivos that we have been in don't have seat belts for the car seat. We would be more comfortable with the bus. Where exactly do we get bus tickets at the airport? My only airport frame of reference is where the busses drop you off at the airport and the exit where you find the shared vans. Will the bus even drop off at Mayan Palace?
3. We want to spend as little time at the Mayan palace a possible. We have a car for 5 people and that will work for most of the day trips and diving. But, we are wondering what is the most economical way to get back and forth between PDC and mayan palace if the entire family (6 adults and 3 kids) wants to go to PDC.
4. Any baby tips for us new traveling parents?
Many thanks for any info you can provide.
Wahoo! ony 2 weeks to go!!!
