Trip Report Travelling with 17 year old to Caribbean

Jump to last reply

We have been looking for AI in Barbados/St Lucia and wish to travel Oct 09 with our 17 yr old son. Obviously we would like 2 bedroom apt/villa too. Any suggestions where to go that would also appeal to a water loving active lad and keep mum and dad happy too? Thanks

    Hello Smurfsrus55,

    Barbados and St. Lucia are two really great options to have. Both very beautiful and alluring but differently Caribbean in feel, based on their historic influences. Both islands can meet your criteria. I'm not sure of your budget so I treid to make recommendations based on beauty, service and the location that's "Caribbean Paradise".

    In St. Lucia on the North west point Windjammer is an all-inclusive, my favourite to date on that hands down.The staff are wonderful, the ambience is soooo nice! The Scenery is absolutely breathtaking, it has a distinctly Caribbean-mediterranean feeling. For me the natural beauty was amazing. Plus it offers the options of well furnished hotel rooms or Villas, plenty of onsite restaurants, spa etc and the beach offers good play.

    In Barbados depending on which coast you prefer I would Suggest researching Mango Bay on the West Coast it is in Holetown near to shopping and beaches with plenty of water sports, restaurants and near to folkstone marine park.

    Another all-inclusive property near to hoteltown also on the beach would be Crystal Cove, which offers all of the access to amentities etc and lovely susnset walks as well.
