Best Island for Me?

Jump to last reply

I have yet to visit the Caribbean (except for Florida Keys) and planned on a long vacation (75+ days) when I get the ability to do so (it's been a very eventful/busy year). I have absolutely no idea on what time of the year the vacation would be, however my friends have recommended St. Kitts and Turks & Caicos. The budget isn't an issue, however I would like to stay in one country and not do the touristy-cruise adventure.

About Me: I'm young (under 21), male, vegetarian, have hayfever/allergies, traveling alone. I enjoy photography, urban/island exploration (at night as well), I dislike large crowds/prefer isolated areas, pushy-sellers, panhandlers, cloudy areas.

I would like the ability to roam free at all times without worrying about crime or needing to drive a licensed vehicle (car, etc), I don't want to visit an extremely poor country where the infrastructure is all messed up (bad roads/pavements) and the people are in-need of basics like food and medicine.

Feel free to ask me anymore questions, I have a copy of the Caribbean 2014 fodors books on hand.
