Need Help: First time to Caribbean.

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are wanting to take a much needed vacation to the Caribbean sometime between March - May, 2012. We are getting very frustrated trying to find an island and hotel to visit. We would very much appreciate any help you could offer. Here are some of our criteria:

- 5 night stay
- Less than $400/night for lodging
- Beach front hotel, resort or boutique close to a town for dining and adventure. (we like the idea of a boutique hotel)
- Not All Inclusive
- Pool
- Reasonable distance to hiking/adventure
- Not too touristy of an area
- Safe

We visited an all inclusive resort in the Mayan Riviera for our honeymoon and enjoyed it because it was our honeymoon. However, we probably wouldnt go back to that part of mexico again and probably wouldnt do an all inclusive. We'll be flying from Atlanta, GA using skymiles. Here are some of the places we've been interested in, but reviews of turned us off for one reason or another (please feel free to expound on why these are good places):

Costa Rica (too far away? difficult to get to?)
Dominican Republic
St. Maartin (Couldn't find the right place)
St. John (Couldn't find the right place)
St. Lucia (Expensive?)
Turks & Caicos (Expensive?)
