Which Island to Combine with Puerto Rico: St John, Anguilla or Grenada

Jump to last reply

I will be in San Juan, PR to attend a work related event in June. My wife will join me. Afterwards we plan to visit one more island for 5 to 7 days. Currently we are considering St. John and Anguilla. Please help us to decide.

A little background about us:
1) We live in California, and have been to Hawaii, Tahiti / Bora Bora, Phuket and Bali. It will be our first trip to the Caribbean.
2) We like beautiful scenery, history, culture, good food, hiking, and snorkling (although neither of us is strong swimmer). Above all, we treasure the memory of local people who are dignified and friendly.
3) We prefer quiet, less developed destination, and do not care for casino and nightlife. A little shopping is nice, but not important. I believe it can be easily accomlished with day trip to St. Thomas from St. John, or St. Marteen from Anguilla.
4) Culturally, we love the thrill of being in a foreign country. Hawaii is nice, but it is pretty Americanized, with fast food all over the place and everyone (other thantourists) speaks CNN-ish English.
5) We are pescetarians. I expect we will be OK as fish should be plentiful everywhere in the Caribbean. Variety of fresh vegetable is also important to us.
6) I would like to limit accomodation budget to $200 a night. This is probably low-end for St. John and Anguilla, but it's not a hard limit. June should be low season.
7) Finally we would like to compliment our stay in Puerto Rico, with some contrast.

Aside from St. John and Anguilla, I am also curious about Grenada.
