help choosing island

Jump to last reply

We are planning a family trip to the caribbean for next year and are searching for the perfect island for us. We are looking for an uncrowded island not dominated by chain resorts. it needs to have beautiful, turquoise-water beaches, and we would also like to experience a lush landscape, especially rainforest. Finally, we are travelling on a budget, so a destination with extreme travel costs would not be possible for us. Any ideas? are we asking too much, or does an island like this exist?

some of the islands we have looked at so far are Grenada, Jamaica, St. John USVI, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Tobago. How do these islands compare in the fields of genuine atmosphere, beaches, ecotourism/rainforests, and budget-friendly travel?

Thanks so much in advance for the help!
