Coming with two small kids..good or bad idea?

My husband and I are considering coming to St. Kitts or Nevis with our 1 and 4 year olds.

Are there very many families with young children?

We are interested in driving around the island to just explore. How safe is that? I mean do we have to worry about getting out of the car and having someone try to rob us or anything like that? It appears to be pretty safe. Just wanted some personal opinions.

St. Kitt & Nevis are 2 of the safest islands in the Caribbean. Just use common sense (don't leave valuables unattended, don't travel down dark allys alone at 3AM in the morning, don't go flashing large sums of money, etc.) and you'll be just fine. Incidents of crime against tourists are rare indeed.

You'll encounter many families with children your kids age especially if you stay at the Marriott on St. Kitts or the Four Seasons (excellent children's program) or Oualie Beach on Nevis.

I have been going to St. Kitts since I was a child and have always felt safe. As Caribsurfer mentioned, use common sense and be aware of your surroundings.

In St. Kitts the Marriott has all the amenities and a children's program.

Timothy Beach Resort is located on the Caribbean and the water is very calm.
