    Best things to do with my 5 month old and her grandparents!

    Just wondering what advice other than the beach & pool for us to consider...

    Something that a 5 month old, 2 in their late 20's and 2 in their 70's might enjoy,

    So... what would be your 5 can't miss activities if you were taking a 5 month old (other than the water)

    i think a 5 month old would be happy with just about anything.
    make sure she has her/his bottle for take off and landing to relieve ear pain.

    re: something for such a "typical family"
    yes, beach and pool
    island tour in an air conditioned taxi or open air bus
    butterfly farm

    snorkel or sunset tours

    scan the topics here on the site and see what works for you and yours.

    I can't think of anything I enjoy about the island that would be good for a five year old. Hanging out at the hotel by the pool and a bus tour are the only baby safe/centered activities I can imagine. Diving, snorkeling, driving jeeps around the island and excellent restaurants are the highlights of the island to me.

    Beach and pool, time with Mama, Daddy and grandparents - what more could a baby want?!

    We're going to try the butterfly garden this year, but we have an older toddler as well as a baby. Within reason, a baby that small will do whatever you do. Obviously all of the adults can't go snorkling/diving all at once with the baby, but we find plenty to keep us busy without snorkling or diving.

    We did everything we normally do just modified it. Less time in the direct hot sun. More shade. Naps in the shade under the stroller shade. Took turns snorkeling and while one stayed back with the baby in the water. Ate dinner early in the evening or late with baby sleeping in car seat/carrier. Ate out. Traveled the island. Went to the beach, pool, aerobics, etc.
    Made more memories and had a blast.

    Baby Beach there's a breakwater no waves 2" to start, take turns to snorkel where the water changes color, plenty of fish & if you take bagels & sprinkle in the water knee deep they will come to you & your baby great first pic's with and the fishies.
