Been to Nassau a few times now in the last few years, most recently last year. As I mentioned earlier, we had our 5 month old. We have never, ever felt unsafe there at all.

In the Straw Market, they are trying to sell. If you are worried about being 'harassed', I'd avoid it. I loved it. But, if being approached by anyone worries you, don't go there. You will be talked to, but I find them friendly!

When we go again, in less than a month, we will be probably strolling the streets, may take a cab to the Fish Fry, and if we are in a beach mood, we will walk next door to the port to the Hilton where you can use their beach with a day pass.

Last of all, we haven't been to Castaway Cay with child... but we have been without child and also to the beach with him. We plan on bringing a floaty toy for him (one that is inflatable), lots of sunscreen and a head to toe outfit for sun protection, lots of drinks and a good attitude. We tried to bring a 50 SPF beach umbrella with us, but it got lost by the airline. We did find a protective sun net made by Jolly Jumper that is pretty cool to bring and we've used it on a few trips now.

Traveling with a baby just requires patience and planning more than anything. Run through your day and pack all of that along with anything you'll need for the sun You'll have a great time!
Thank you for your helpful reply. I better get planning, although at least it's exciting planning! Thanks again.
