A challenge: Pls help choose new vacation spot

Jump to last reply

We are researching finding a new place to try for winter vacations. Over the last 6 years we have stayed in the village of Grand Case St. Martin five times, and Isla Mujeres once.

Here is our list of wishes, pretty sure we will not find all of them but figured I’d give it a try:

1) Comfortable, quiet, clean, safe accommodations with a patio on the beach. Does not need to be fancy; prefer to spend no more than $1,000 per couple for a week for accommodations. We not like “high rises”.

2) “Reasonable” travel distance from Portland Maine.

3) In or very close to a town so we can walk to shops and good reasonably priced restaurants.

4) Walkable beach – which is safe at night.

5) Lack of bugs.. this has become an issue since my fiancé has had pretty severe allergic reactions to either sand fleas or mosquitoes for the last five years.

6) Lack of or minor wind.. we found the Caribbean coast of Isla Mujeres uncomfortably windy.

Any advise on islands, towns, hotels, apartments, etc.? Thanks in advance.
