Need help with first trip out of U.S.

Jump to last reply

Hi, my husband and I are planning a romantic trip to the Caribbean in late 2014. We have never been out of the U.S. before except for myself when I was 4 yrs. and went to Canada. We have no idea where to go. I just know that we both want hot weather, sparkling water, and white sands for our trip. This trip is sort of our belated honeymoon since we never had one. We have chosen 2014 since it will be our 10 yr. anniversary and it gives us time to save up the money. We are using a travel agent but would like some recommendations on places to stay and things to do.
We both have agreed that we want a place that is not overly crowded. Not so much into the night life but would like to hit a bar or two... some shopping... sight seeing. We don't like just sitting around doing nothing. There needs to be ample things to keep us busy during the day. We are not too picky so whatever you got will be taken into account... we are interested in zip lines, horseback riding... not to interested in trying the local food though.
Any tips would be great. We were looking into Antigua, Barbados, Bermuda, St. Lucia, UVI, Turks&Caicos. Not interested in an island where we will be spending an arm and a leg for food, attractions, or shopping! Thanks!
