USVI/Puerto Rico vs. Aruba/curaçao

Jump to last reply

Hello- my boyfriend and I are planning a trip to the caribbean in early July. We would like to get to two different locations so we can experience more. We are in our mid twenties and are looking to relax on white sandy beaches, enjoy good food, snorkel, good nightlife (beach bars with dancing, etc,- not big clubs), and a day excursion or two.

This is our first visit but after doing some research we are thinking about going to Aruba and Curaçao because of the beautiful beaches, lack of rain, good food, etc. I don't love the fact that it's desert like there however. The other option we are thinking is Puerto Rico and one of the USVI or BVI ( don't know where but would love suggestions). We like the idea of there being a lot of activities to choose from, tropical lush scenery, nightlife, culture, beaches, etc. The possibility of rain is a negative though and although I've heard great things about Puerto Rico it looks overcrowded and the beaches subpar to other islands.

We appreciate any and all advice!!! Thank you :)
