What is the standard compensation, time off and travel expenses paid when taking a nanny on a family vacation?

This is my first nanny position and the family is going to Cancun for 7 days and have asked me to join them. They have a 1 year old child. I work 25 hrs for them a week, 4 days a week. We have lightly discussed compensation, breaks during the day and travel expenses. Can those with experience give me some direction on what is fair and standard for both the family and I?

They should pay all lodging and food as well as your usual compensation for watching their child on their vacation.
