Planning first (non-cruise) trip to Caribbean, slightly overwhelmed

Jump to last reply

I know this question has been asked in various forms on the forum, but, alas, here goes.

My wife and I are planning a relatively short (4 nights) trip for mid-April somewhere in the Caribbean, but after scouring message boards and reading a plethora of top-10 lists, I still find myself a bit overwhelmed with trying to choose where to go. I'm hoping some people might have some helpful suggestions. Here's a little more info:

Budget: probably about $3,500 US for the trip, flying out of either Dallas or Houston
What we're looking for:
-relaxation (we have 10 month old twins who will not be joining us); we don't need nightlife, or even much interaction with other people,
-easy access & able to get around relatively easily/safely without a rental car; because it is a short trip, we don't have to spend too much time in transit, and we're planning on hanging around the beach & resort for the most part, although some food options nearby would be nice
-we're kind of partial to a white sand, Corona commercial type beach (perhaps I should be looking at Mexico then), but I found some of the more rocky beaches intriguing too, we mainly just want some peace & quiet.

That about sums it up. Thanks for any advice you can give!
