A husband who doesn't like too much beach; a toddler who can't snorkel...

Jump to last reply

Having trouble planning...

I could lounge on a crystal blue beach for 5 days straight. Stay in a palapa with white washed walls. Eat fresh fruit and sleep. To me, a number of Caribbean islands look splendid.

But then there is my husband...not that keen on a beach vacation because he doesn't actually like being in the sun for very long! He thinks it's hot and boring. He'd rather hike, bike, explore plantations etc.

Which is all fine and good except now we throw in our 2.5 year old boy. Who can't really "hike" for very long. We can't take advantage of the snorkeling, diving, etc. unless we split up...which doesn't sound that fun.

What we do agree on is happily exploring interesting towns, eat good friend, watch sunsets.
Any ideas of how we can find the right balance? We don't have oodles of money to spend on places like Grace Bay at TC. We don't like the idea of resorts with kiddy pools and Disney babysitting areas. But I also don't want to have to rent a car and drive 5 hours somewhere into the boonies to get somewhere off the beaten path...Tricky, I know.
