The Dominican Republic is a vacation paradise for families. It has all the kid-friendly appeal of other Caribbean destinations, plus the best combo in terms of ease of travel: direct flights and short transfer times after arriving. Parents can go from the stressful school pickup line to beachside cocktail sipping in just a few hours. Nature-seeking families are attracted to the diverse ecosystems — there are nine to choose from, each with activities and hands-on experiences to immerse children in these unique settings. Kid-friendly resorts and independent hotels abound in the Dominican Republic. Look for those with activities and amenities that your family values, and consider switching once or twice during your vacation to get a nice variety.

"Katie planned the perfect trip. We all agree it was the best trip we've had, and the hotels were some of the best we've stayed in. We found that with a baby, it was only possible to get through about half of the suggested itinerary each day, which was great because it gave us options. We took time each night to debate what we would do the next day, and really enjoyed having those possibilities laid out for us.​"
