Parent Testimonials

Michael Stone

“This was our second time in Tulum, and our second time using Anana. Raquel was amazing! She came to the house we rented and took care of our 4yo and 18mo, and they absolutely loved her. She was on time, brought fun stuff for them to do, and most importantly, they felt completely comfortable with her. Our older boy kept asking when “Miss Raquel” was coming back, and Miss Raquel was actually get our younger boy to fall asleep (which, for the entire week we were there, we could not!). I can’t recommend them highly enough!”

“Dream babysitter. Ana showed up early, had activities planned, and was beyond exceptional with our baby boy. Felt instantly at ease and comforted. Great communication while we were out...above and beyond in every way. Highly highly recommended!!! Thanks Ana!”

"If anyone is traveling to TULUM any time soon with the littles, I highly recommend Ana y Raquel of Anana Babysitting. A graduate of UCLA, with over 10 years experience in childcare, I absolutely loved getting to know Ana. Living the dream now in Tulum too makes her even that much fun for the kiddos! ananababysittingtulum.com"

“Ana is absolutely incredible with children! I hired her to look after my boss' 2.5 year old and 7 month old on his trip to Tulum. She was very punctual each day and flexible enough to work with our schedule. She engaged both children with fun activities and games and was a joy to be around. Our vacation would not have been the same without her!”


Carrie Kingsley

“Ana and Raquel were both fabulous with our 6 month old while we were on vacation in Tulum. Our baby is in that stage where she's very skeptical of new people, and she was won over by each of them. We only wish they were available to watch our little one at home! But when we get back to Tulum one day we know who we'll call. Highly recommended!”

Raquel and Delphine were amazing--they engaged our 3-year-olds the moment they walked in the door, and even the shyest warmed to them quickly. They were professional, reliable, and warm & loving with kids. They helped us for two days, and on the 2nd visit the boys were so excited to see them they ran to the door when the bell rang. Highly recommended!

Erin Fowler

“Couldn't have been happier with Ana -- she's a pro. This was our first time using an 'unknown' sitter and our kids (age 2 and 4.5) are not the easygoing type. But Ana had them relaxed and engaged within minutes. She showed up with balloons and activities and kept us updated via text and WhatsApp. Will definitely be calling on her again next year. (FYI: Ana was born in Mexico City but grew up in LA and is perfectly bilingual.)”

Alejjandra Val

"Our kids were really happy to have Raquel as a babysitter so do we!! She is very sweet and nice!! Our kids told us they had so much fun and wanted to have her again, highly recommended"

Mariam Bashir Seifert

"Ana is amazing with kids! My 11 month old son loved spending time with her although it was his first babysitting by a complete stranger! Absolutely recommendable" 

Hugo Murray

“Raquel looked after our 8 month old boy, Arturo. She took great care of him, was friendly and extremely professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Anana”

Geoff Riley

"We were in Tulum for a week in January 2018 with our 1 year old son. We arranged for Ana to look after him for two nights across our stay and she was perfect in every way. She was immediately active with him playing games straight away. She was punctual, professional, and provided regular updates to keep us at ease whilst we were out. She is friendly, caring, and absolutely fantastic with the boy. We only wish she was here in the UK so she could look after him all the time. Can’t recommend enough. And it is completely worth it to have someone like her looking after your little ones.”

John Lory

"Raquel saved the day! Watched our kids 3 nights in a row. Took them to dinner, to get ice cream, and the beach. Best part was coming home to sleeping kids. English Spanish speaking, more important kids loved ❤️ her. Until next time. Mil gracias!"
