Narrowing down Caribbean Island

Jump to last reply

Hello,

Wanting to go with my family December 17-25. Yes, late planning. My family will include my old parents who will veg out at beach and pool and my 6 year old son and me an my sister and her husband who do want to go out at night. Flying from Atlanta. Ideal: gorgeous beach, good snorkel and maybe diving, strong nightlife and local culture, all inclusive or hotel with breakfast included and can walk into town. We have already been to DR, PR, Mayan Riviera.

I have been reading up a ton on the islands and my question here is about the islands.

-Aruba looks good except I have read its not great for snorkeling and not clear how pretty the beaches are. But looks like it has a strong culture and nightlife

-Bahamas.....? Would love to know Pros and Cons

-St Martin? Would love to know Pros and Cons

Most of the southern caribbean too expensive at this point. (Barbados, Martinique etc)
