Safe for infants?

OK I've been to Cayo Largo I think it was two years ago, me and my husband and stayed at Sol Cayo Largo. This is my husbands favorite spot. He wants to go again this year but wants to try Sol Pelicino. I have never been to Cuba with a infant but will be travelling this year with a 9 month old. Is Cayo largo good for infants. Is there doctors or a hospital ear by incase of emergancies? I'm just a lilttle worried about taking a 9 month old to Cuba (no offense). Also i'm torn between the resorts. Sol Pelicino seems nice but I loved Sol Cayo largo. The price is WAY cheaper for Pelicno so I dunno if we should spend the extra money and go for what I know (Sol Cayo Largo). Also Hotel Playa Blanca seems nice aswell. I need a resort that is stroller friendly too. Any thoughts? TIA

My son had his second visit to the Pelicano at 9 months (and his third trip to Cuba)! No worries at all. There is an international clinic at the village, it's opened 24 hours (and it's only 8 minutes away!).

My pediatrician had agreed to give me a presription for antibiotics, just in case. I asked the pharmacist (here) to give me only the powder, with instructions on how to mix in the water (which is what they do at the pharmacy when you get liquid antibiotics for kids). I didn't need to use the prescription, but if the doctor had diagnosed an ear infection, for example, I knew I had the required medication (and the right dosage) with me.

At 9 months old, the baby won't know the difference between resorts, LOL! But depending on the time of the year you are going, you (and your baby!) might appreciate the air-conditioned buffet at the Pelicano. There is also a very small playground at the Pelicano, but your baby might be a bit young for that. But the kids pool is great, you could sit in it and have your baby play in the water, it's about 1 foot deep.

The Pelicano is totally stroller friendly.

I agree. Same with Playa Blanca, playground, kids pool,air conditioned buffet and stroller friendly but much shorter distances.

The local hospital can mix "Banana Medicine" from powder too.

You can't go wrong on Cayo Largo.

It's super safe for us and for our kids.
