Where to Stay?

Jump to last reply

At this point we are just in the very beginning stages of planning our trip.
This vacation is for two adults and one 13 year old.
We dont want to be too off the beaten path. Close enough where we can get a short ride to town to eat, sight see, shop, and then return to the beach. But we also dont want to hang out with 20 million other tourists on the beach, if that is still possible.
Would like to enjoy a "quiet beach" , which offers white sandy beach and ideal spots for beginners to snorkel, reading and just taking it in.
Also areas which offer seafood that isnt just shrimp and lobster. Like to do some adventure eating.
We are not looking for a high end resort experience. Basic hotel that is clean and friendly staff.
Lastly, an island that is navigateable for a tourist.
At this point we are open to any caribbean island. Would go in 2014.
