Carribbean vacation ideas anyone???

  1. Ok so I'm going away with my boyfriend within the next few months, any suggestions on a good Island to go to?? I was thinking Barbados, Aruba, St. Maarten, etc.... :hrmm:
     
  2. Aruba!!! always sunny warm and breezy. perfect water, nice nice people too. Ive been to quite a few islands and am always dying to return to Aruba! The Tamarijn All inclusive is so fun, you have access to the Divi Divi's restaurants and bars under the all inclusive packages.
     
  3. I hear St. Maarten is amazing. I've been to St. Thomas, St. John, Tortola, and a bunch of other little British Virgin Islands. I'd have to say St. John was one of my absolute favs.
     
  4. We're thinking of Martinique. A little out of the norm for most (in the US anyway). It's a French island. Can't wait to go. I hear it's gorgeous and DH speaks the French and Kreyol languages. I think all of the resorts only have EP (European plan, food not included) versus AI (all inclusive) though.
     
  5. jamaica- the perfect island. (yes i'm biased) go to the north coast - negril, montego bay. the beaches in negril are pure heaven!
     
  6. my most memorable caribbean experience was one all the way down to Trinidad to experience the gorgeous beaches there! Martinique is great too for shopping as well as St. Thomas. Dominica is fabulous for more low keyed activity...
     
  7. I love Grand Cayman,BWI. The snorkeling is awesome!
     
  8. St Maarten/St. Martin!! My DH and I have been several times. St Maarten is the Dutch side and St. Martin is the French Side. The Dutch side is commercialized w/ high rises, clubs, and some small casinos. The French Side is quiet, with beautiful beaches. Some secluded that you can hike to.
    We stay on the French Side (Grand Case - Lepetite Hotel), but we rent a car and the Dutch side is close enough to experience in the evenings.
    You can also take a short ferry ride and spend the day at St. Barts, or Anguilla, which are both very beautiful islands (expensive$$$).

    Check www.tripadvisor.com. Lots of info there!

    Below are photos from our room at LePetite Hotel, Grand Case, French Side.
