Turks and Caicos versus St. Croix/St. Thomas

Jump to last reply

Hello Caribbean Travelers,
My husband and I are planning a trip for a week in January and we're having trouble deciding between Turks and Caicos and St Croix/St. Thomas. Here are our desires in order:

1. good diving
2. something to do other than diving (i.e. island hop from St. Croix to St. Thomas, a bit of local night life)
3. good food (doesn't have to be GREAT, but good)
4. generally beautiful
5. good value

We're looking at Carambola at St. Croix or Windsong at Turks and Caicos. Prices are almost identical.

Is there some other island we should be looking at? The only other suggestion we've gotten is Nevis/St. Kitt's but heard the water there isn't great but the island is beautiful. With diving being top of our list, we're looking for nice water.

Thanks!
