Can't decide on an island- HELP!

Jump to last reply

I am taking my Mom to the Caribbean. I have been to many countries before, but she hasn't. We are going in August and I don't have much time to plan this so I am begging for guidance. I started with the idea of the Bahamas or St. Thomas, but I am wondering if they are too commericalized. So, now I am thinking more like St. Barts, Dominica or Jamaica. However, while searching flights (early stages!) I am not sure about some of my options because of the timing. We will leave Kansas City on a Friday and fly back on Thursday.

An ideal setting for the two of us would be a variety of things to do - beach, shopping, pools etc... a very secluded setting (only nature and beaches) wouldn't be ideal for this trip. I go on an international trip every year and the more 'exotic' place for this quick trip would be great, too.

Please guide me...
