Help with finding an affordable all-inclusive in the Caribbean

Jump to last reply

Cliffnotes: Looking for a reasonably priced all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean. Prefer geographically diverse location over flat and arid, something that offers culture and exploration and nice beaches.
--
My fiance and I are celebrating our marriage in November with a honeymoon trip to the Caribbean. She has been to Jamaica, and the Caymans but I have not been. Therefore, we're looking for somewhere new for the both of us.

We're looking to save money, and get the most out of our 5-6 days and would like to go the all-inclusive route.

We're not ones to lay on the beach all day, every day, we'd like an island that offers something to explore, and has cultural elements where we can socialize with the locals and learn a bit about the culture.

Scenery: This is HUGE. I have a huge appreciation for beautiful geographic locations and flat, low elevated islands just don't do it for me. I very much enjoy topographic contrast and mountainous regions. I want to do some exploring and enjoy the scenery. A flat island may get redundant and monotonous.

Beaches: Would love something with white sand and azure water, something that has decent snorkeling and things to explore. Not looking for the world's most beautiful beach, just something that is nice, and enjoyable and has warm, blue water.

Accommodations: AI is a must. 5-star cuisine isn't necessary, but something more than cafeteria fare is very much important. For reference, we just stayed at Dreams Resort in PVR and had a wonderful time. We prefer something a little more cultural, and less touristy, staying in a 20 story resort is less appealing than a beach side hut if you know what I mean. Accessibility to bars/restaurants outside of the resort would be nice but not a deal breaker. We like to explore if it's convenient and possible.

Accessibility: Something that is relatively easy to get in and out of is a plus. Something that requires 3 stops is very much not desirable, unless of course it's totally worth it.

Locations that have caught our attention:

Antigua & Barbuda

St. Lucia

Hopefully this gives you enough info to help guide us in choosing a magnificent trip. Thanks in advance!
