First Time to Caribbean: Need Help Please

Jump to last reply

Hello Fellow Travelers,

My wife and I are thinking about a trip to one of the islands in the Caribbean this December. We a are middle-aged professional couple. I am a college history professor, my wife is an artist. Neither of us have ever been to the Caribbean before. We are considering Aruba and St. Lucia, and would certainly consider other islands. We will leave from Atlanta and spend 7-10 days on the island. Budget is 5-6k. Here is a list of our priorities:

1. Safe, quiet, adult-only, romantic hotel/resort with immediate beach access.

2. Attractive beach for swimming, relaxing, and snorkeling. Not too crowded with young people.

3. Outdoor pool with hot tub, full service spa, and fitness center.

4. A variety of good restaurants with different cuisines and price points. We do not want an all inclusive.

5. Beautiful landscapes, museums, hiking/bicycling.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
