Puerto Rico, USVI or Florida with 13 year old granddaughter?

Jump to last reply

I had previously posted on FL, PR, and USVI separately regarding our upcoming April trip, and now have new feedback from our granddaughter and thought it might be easier to post in this forum tagging PR and USVI.

Latest feedback from our GD is that she only cares about getting a tan and relaxing on spring break. Where we had been looking into a lot of side trips to entertain her (fun, cultural, historical, etc.) it seems she doesn't want to be on the go all the time. Also, she is a little afraid of snorkeling which she has never tried, but we would love to introduce her to it.

So where do you recommend going for a nice beach vacation ideally with access to snorkeling (in case she likes it, because we love it), even if it is a day trip elsewhere? Either an all inclusive or someplace reasonably priced knowing how teenagers want to snack all the time. Because of her lack of passport we have narrowed it down to Florida, Puerto Rico, or somewhere in the US Virgin Islands (St. John, St. Thomas, St. Croix). Want somewhere clean, safe, with a nice beach on site. While we will try to entice her to do a little sightseeing, we want to be sure the place we select to stay is enjoyable if we can't get her to budge off the beach. Thanks.
