Non-zika destination for one-week over shavuos within 10 hours of flying. Thus, destinations where hotels are walkable to Chabad are imperative.

Nice F product a bonus.
PSP?
Panama?

I think they do. Although you may want to also look into VRBO/Air BNB
Chabad of Napa valley?

If you're looking domestically, Colorado is great. Can pick up food in Denver and Chabads and great hotels in Aspen and Vail.

I'm thinking of doing the following trip sometime this winter, HKG, BKK, USM, maybe SIN, SYD and then routing home through DOH and AUH. Between all of those places what month does it make the most sense to go? Right now I'm thinking mid to late December as it's not too cold yet in HKG, already pretty warm but not too hot in SYD and the end of monsoon season in Thailand. Does that make the most sense?

Would taking out a private beachfront villa Sun-Thu in Cazumel make sense? All I need is be able to relax sit on the beach and some activities so I don't become too bored... Does this sound right?

I guess I can do snorkeling along side my villa as well. Officially they have nice snorkeling there.  Cazumel vs Isla Mujeres, which one should I pick?

Zika free destination, Sunday-Thursday with 6 month old baby. Would need to have some activity to keep the baby stimulated. ( Driving, being pushed in carriage, baby carrier etc.)

suggestions for warm place to go in January (winter) with a baby for 6-9 days, other then continental usa, mexico, carribean? as of now, hawaii is top choice based on past recommendations.

not need kosher food, jewish community etc.... but flight time is a consideration. hence not going to thailand, maldives or new zealand no matter how much i want to.
