Nevis Nisbet Plantation or Royal PLantation Jamaica

Jump to last reply

Wife and I are want to get away from CT for a winter vacaton w/o the baby. Plan is to fly from NY to RDU to drop our son off with his grandparents and fly out to the Caribbean the next day. She only wants be away for a max 5 nights. Stay in RDU for a night or 2 and fly back to home to CT. Since we have these flights before we really "leave" and are leaving from RDU it seems like best I can do is a 10 hour trip into NEV. Flights into Montego Bay from RDU are like 5-5 1/2hours w/ a 1hr or so car ride they provide.

Between flights and hotel the prices work out to be of little difference, so for a 5 night trip I am worried that the travel NEvis is too long. Never been to Jamaica but heard some iffy things, though RP looks real nice and we would probably just stay at the resort for a short stay.

So I guess my question is, is Nevis & Nisbit that much better that makes the extra travel worth it?

Thanks for any and all insight.
