Best Island get away for four girls in their 30's
What would be the best suggestions for four girls in their 30's? I'm open to the Caribbean and Mexico.
We would like a island where we can relax a bit, play a bit, go out at night, eat well, have a few drinks. I don't want it to be too young where we don't fit in or too old where everything closes at 10:00. We're looking for a good fit!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

What you describe is available on almost every island. For starters look at Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozemel, and Aruba - all are very popular with young singles.

I agree with Playa del Carmen and Aruba.
Aruba is a desert island so you won't have all the lush greenery. It is also quite Americanized.
If you want more of a link with native culture, go with Playa del Carmen. Good beaches, shopping, plenty of restaurants and bars. You can visit the Mayan ruins if you want to.

Great, thank you for your responses. I have been to Cancun and Aruba and I will look into Playa Del Carmen!

I agree with Playa del Carmen. Everything you're looking for is on 5th Avenue.

Playa is were it's at. I would go there. We have been three time and loved it. It's so convienient and you can walk everywhere. Go for it.

We just did a girls trip to celebrate my 40th early. We rented a fabulous condo on the north end of Playa on the beach.

It was perfect.
