First Time Traveler Needs Help Picking Location

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning our first vacation to the Caribbean and can't decide where to go. Since we've never been, we have no idea what would make one island or area better than another. We've read about a bunch of different places, but can't make up our minds. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We're planning on going away next March and would prefer to avoid the spring break scene. While an adult only resort is not mandatory, we don't want to be someplace that's overrun with children. A perfect beach isn't a priority, it's all about the warmth. We picked the Caribbean only to escape the New England cold. We don't scuba, but would probably try snorkeling. We were considering a cruise, but my husband is nervous that a few hours in a port wouldn't be enough time to enjoy what an area has to offer. We are also considering an all-inclusive, but I'm nervous that I'll get stir crazy and want to spend more time off the resort than on. Preferably we'd like to be able to explore on our own instead of worring about hiring guides. We really enjoy hiking, history/culture, and good meals. We don't care about casinos or nightclubs.

Thanks for your help!
