Curaco vs St. Lucia

Jump to last reply

After an brief break due to the recession, we are gearing up for yet another trip to the Islands. We are deciding between Curacao and St. Lucia. Please help us decide! Here are a few criteria that are most important to us:

- nice beaches: we are beach bums, and like to snorkel from the beach. We still dream about replicating our "private cove" experience while vacationing in Vieques.

- great local food: since we live in a food city (NYC), we don't necessarily fancy high end restaurants, but rather we are drawn to good fresh local food. We like trying local street food, roti, and of course goat water. The more local more bueno! We also like buying local fish and produce and prepare our own meals at the villa.

- scenery and culture: we like to tote our digital cameras and shoot away

- good watering holes/entertainment: something that rivals Cane Garden Bay? Not necessarily nightclubs, but some late night options would be good.

- smaller crowds: we find cruise ship folk extremely distracting

To a lesser extent, safety of the island, and ease of transportation/navigation via a rental car.

Many thanks!
Ed and Peg
