We'll be in Cabo two days and Puerto Vallarta one day next month during our Carnival Splendor cruise. We have a 5 year-old and one who's almost 2. We would love to find a beach in either or both ports that is (1) easy to get to (I'm a little nervous about cabs, but if you have advice about that, please tell!), and (2) safe for little ones to walk in the water. I'm a totally nervous mom and not really a water person so of course I envision scary drop-offs, currents, etc. They won't be swimming, per se, but we just want a nice place where they can get knee-deep and play, build sand castles, etc.
Thanks so much for any info about this or any other tips for taking little ones into these ports.
