Best time to go?

We are looking for a vacation spot that is toddler friendly. I know March is probably a mad house due to spring break, but are April/May good times to go ( we'd prefer to go during a quiet more non peak time that is NOT super hot ).

Check out The Anchor Inn, It's located in Boca Grande, 2 hours North of Marco Island. Boca Grande is never very busy, it's a small barrier Island, weathers

always beautiful, no beach fees, everyone drives golf-carts (Boca-buggies)

Quaint beautiful place, my kids liked it more than Disney.

Best of luck and have fun.

Marco in April/May is usually warm but not unbearable.

In my mind May is when snowbirds leave and heat returns.

Marco is the most family friendly gorgeous high end resort island we've ever found. We spent many years searching the world. We've done Maui, to Malaga, Spain. Loved both, but Marco was better. Gorgeous white sand beach, everywhere is "kid friendly." Go! Make memories for your kid!

Marco in April or May should be lovely. One really nice thing about that time of year is that the ocean warms up a little bit so swimming is great. Marco is a great place to take your toddler - not so busy as many other places.

April is a perfect time to go.

Season is just about ending and the island is calming down a bit.

We have done an April trip for many years.

We find that a private home rental is the way to go if you want to stay away from crowds and have a private pool, possible hot tub, fishing in your own back yard. Quick access to the local beaches, food, entertainment- IF you feel the urge to go.

Our son has been going since he was two years old. When we ask him about going on vacation, he always asks to go to Marco- EVEN OVER DISNEY!

You will enjoy April or May on the island and will want to come back!
