Where should we bring our kids for their 1st Caribbean trip?!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I love the Caribbean. We are hoping to bring the kids with us on our next trip, so I'm looking for advice on everything related to kids in the Caribbean!

Kids: ages 2 & 4

Dates: late spring (April/May)

Location: still debating return to a favorite (St John or Grand Cayman) or trying somewhere new (Anguilla or Barbados)...suggestions?

Wish list: beachfront on a gorgeous beach (think Grace Bay or 7-Mile), calm waters, safe, accommodations with a full kitchen, pool, a few kid-friendly activities around the island, "easy" to get to (okay with taking a ferry).

Budget: depends on the accommodations. We would pay more for an ideal villa with three bedrooms, but in reality we are okay with a one bedroom. Under $400/night would be great, is that possible?

Side notes:
- Not a huge fan of Provo (but did love Grace Bay Beach), but would consider Beaches - any thoughts on that? Too kid-crazy?
- Nightlife not necessary, not looking for babysitting services either.
- I hate to say it because I don't want to offend, but not interested in Jamaica or Mexico for this trip (don't want beach vendors).
- would the Bahamas be too cold that early? If not, recommendations on an island?

So, any advice or comments are appreciated. Thanks!!
