Trip Report Anguilla in the off season: small budget but high expectations!

Jump to last reply

For a family of four I don't think Anguilla can be considered a bargain destination but there are ways to cut the cost. For this trip our budget was about $5000 for 9 nights; a week on Anguilla with a night in St. Martin at either end. Our son leaves for university this fall so it might also be our last family trip...

We love the beach and about 20 years ago my DH and I spent a weekend on Anguilla so we knew what to expect beach-wise and research showed that restaurant bills could easily swallow our entire budget!! So.... the hunt was on for inexpensive accommodation for 4 with cooking facilities.

Here's a brief description of the logistics of our trip

Wed Jun 24th Boston to SXM via Atlanta on Delta. (flights for four $1680 approx)
We had a 5.50am flight so we left home at 4.15am and left the car in central parking ($240 ouch!)
Flights were on time and there were a few spare seats so we had two rows of seats between the four of us :)
Coffees at Logan plus huge smoothies for lunch at Atlanta came to $25 we arrived in SXM around 2pm.
Traffic was awful and the journey from the airport took forever. I'm sure when the new road is complete it'll be a piece of cake but for us an hour in the taxi was an ordeal $30
