My wife and I are going with our kids (5 and 2) to the Carribean this winter, likely in Jan or Feb, but we don't know where to go. We want nice beaches and beautiful landscapes but crowds and full service resorts are not our thing at all. We'd like some access to interesting towns and culture as well and tend to be drawn a bit to artsy/eclectic environments but things have to be safe and comfortable for the kids. Grenada looks great but it seems difficult to get to from the States and Fodors says something about sandflies being a problem. St. Lucia and Curacao also look interesting but it's so hard to tell just reading. Any suggestions for islands and places to stay much appreciated - we'd like to be <$300 per night but could go higher for a great spot. Thanks!
help-where does my family go?
