St. John's, Turks & Caicos or someplace else?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are looking for something a little different. We will be leaving two very well behaved kids behind. We have travelled annually to St. Martin for over 20 years. We have become accustomed to great food, service, beaches, hiking, etc. I think we are a bit spoiled as every place we visit simply falls short of St. Martin. Our recent trips to Cozumel and St. Croix - we were disappointed with the food, weather, culture, etc.

So we continue to try to find another destination. As we have the seldom opportunity to travel without kids we would like to make the most of it. We are looking at traveling in Feb/March 2009 for a week to include adequate/comfortable accommodations (cheap, adequate, safe and convenient to beaches, dining, etc. is fine), beaches, good food and service, relaxation as well as adventure (hiking, kayaking, etc.). Reviews of St. John's seem to be mixed. Turks & Caicos seems to be St. Martin without the food or hiking. Any thoughts?
