suggestions for long weekend from Boston?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. I know this is a question that gets asked a lot, but I am wondering if anyone has good suggestions for a 3 or 4 night Caribbean trip from Boston in the winter. Ideally, we would have more time to travel, but this is going to be a quickie girls weekend for myself and my BFF.

We both prefer quiet places off the beaten path (for reference, we have enjoyed renting villas in Virgin Gorda,BVI, Suleiman Bay near Tulum and a small apartment in Isla Mujeres.) so obviously the dilemma is finding somewhere easy enough to get to that is quiet enough for our tastes. We don't want a big resort experience at all, but need something convenient enough that it is worth it for just a few days, preferable a small hotel with a good restaurant/bar that so that we dont' have to spend half a day driving around getting supplies.

We are open to any beachy area/island, especially if we can get a direct flight. I'm leaning toward Tulum, only since I have been there many times, but wondering if there were other options I hadn't thought about.

The out islands of the Bahamas are still a bit chilly in Jan/Feb, aren't they? And maybe tricky to get to.

I am considering Vieques, Puerto Rico but not sure if there is enough direct beach access. We want to be able to walk onto the beach from our room.

Any direction/suggestions appreciated!
