So for christmas my hubby gave me the option of travelling somewhere warm. Originally, we were planning on leaving our almost 8 month old with grandparents, but that's turning out to be quite a pain in the arse, and I figure we may as well just take her rather than deal with the stress.

So, for those who have vacationed with your LO, where would you recommend? We were thinking of Costa Rica or Honolulu. We would like to go somewhere that didn't need any extra needles, health risks, etc. (Although there is risks anywhere you go).

Also, what did you bring with you? Stroller? Backpack? What happens if you need to take a taxi, do you need a carseat?
