Romantic, 30th Birthday for my girlfriend Trip - I NEED HELP!

Jump to last reply

My girlfriend turns 30 in May, and for her birthday present, I want to suprise her with a summer getaway. She teaches, and will only be able to get away during the last half of August.

She loves beautiful beaches and clear water. She loves looking for sea shells, and she is obsessed with swimming in the water! I'm looking for the right place to take her, and my initial thought was for about a week. Could do 5 nights or so if the price is right. My budget is around $2,500. I'm including all expenses in this budget (airfare, etc). Flying from Detroit.

Some of the places i'm considering:

Jamaica (she's is interested)
Antigua
Turks and Caicos
Puerto Rico
Beliz
Cozumel
Cayman Islands

Please provide ideas, experiences. We like culture too, so it would be nice if there's some nearby culture to experience. But the first priority is romance and beauty. We want to be able to go out on the beach at night.

Okay, i'm depending on all you Fodorites, help me out! Thank you times 1,000.
