We just discovered we have airfare credits we have to USE before August 2. I thought I just had to re-book by August 2, but that is not the case. Regardless, we've got very little time to plan a trip. We'd like to go somewhere in the Caribbean. We've been to the Bahamas twice, Puerto Rico twice and Playa del Carmen (I know that's not part of the Caribbean), and we want to go some place new. We are an active family of 40-ish mom and dad, 17yo boy and 7yo girl. I *need* to be in a town that is safely walk-able as I can't sit still for long. The children want to be within walking distance to a beach, and preferably right on one. The husband is the traveling prima donna in the family and won't stay in less than a 3-star hotel. The more stars the better, as far as he's concerned. As long as the place is clean and safe, I really don't care. Although old and historic would be icing on the cake ...

Of all these requirements for a hotel and location, being right in a walk-able town is most important. To me anyway, and I'm making the reservations! Oh ... all-inclusives aren't feasible as the girl has celiac disease, and I don't want to be paying for meals she can't eat. Plus, most AIs seem to be far out of towns. We prefer not to have to rent a car.

Is there a perfect spot out there on such short notice? Thanks!!
