Best Island for Snorkeling and Rainforests - Anguilla to Grenada

Jump to last reply

I am already starting to plan a trip to the Caribbean for early 2014 (in the cooler months - Jan thru Apr, depending on prices) and my first decision is where to go. As background, we will be 65 and 57, we live in Florida, my husband grew up on a sailboat in St. Thomas, neither one of us are sun worshippers (too many visits to the dermatologist!), we may enjoy an occasional beer or cocktail but aren't really drinkers, and the nightlife is not for us. DH has no interest in cruising after all those years of living in St. Thomas and working in a store being deluged with cruise ship passengers, so we will fly somewhere and possibly take ferries or whatever to other island if necessary.

What we DO like is snorkeling - yes, I know you can't do that without being in the sun but we wouldn't be in the sun all that long and we just don't care to lay on the beach soaking up cancer rays. A view of the beach from a covered location would be awesome, sightseeing in rainforests would be new for us, and we really enjoy quiet nature-watching. Maybe some local shopping but not the usual cruise ship port stores (no Del Sol!!!). It would be nice to rent a small sailboat for a day, but it's not required. Really prefer to avoid crowds - is Spring Break a crowded time?

I've been to the Bahamas several times and really don't want to visit flat islands like those - volcanic islands are what I'd like to see. I was thinking somewhere between Anguilla and Grenada (hubby is ruling out Aruba, Trinidad, and Curacao).

Any comments or suggestions?
