need help picking a destination- never been to the caribbean!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are getting away for 5 days in March from the kids first time in 6 years!! We've never been to caribbean...he's been to jamaica but hated it! been to hawaii...he's not a huge beach person or watersports...here's the kind of trip we need-

great beaches
awesome food
fun nightlife- but safe
fun shopping and daytrips to do- yet not so touristy
some nice snorkeling
relaxation!
we've looked at Curacao- looks interesting- the Avila hotel? Marriot?
others have suggested St. Marten...
please any help is greatly appreciated..
thanks,
lisa
also, what about mosquitos???
