Caribbean sailing for 1 yr

My wife and I are having a baby in 1 month.( we are 40 yrs and 28yrs) We are fairly new to sailing ( only Hobie Cats and Lazers) . We plan to sail the Carribean for 1 yr. We have a budget of 40 - 50 K for a 34 -36 ft boat (I like the 34 Catalina-early 1990s) and about $1200 budget /month . I plan to buy the boat in 4 - 6 months, sail it often around Miami, and ready it for the trip 6 months later

Sailing with a 1 yr old ----- good or bad idea ??

Catalina 34 -- decent boat for 1 yr in the Caribbean? any other ideas?

1200/month --- doable in the Caribbean ?? (we don't drink or need fancy stuff and hope to fish and dive for some food.

Any other advice would be great

Thanks for your time
