Curacao, Turks, Antigua? Help
2 lifelong male friends (Straight) (I know that in some areas of the carb this info might make a difference on recommendations) are going to the caribbean and are wondering which of the above sites would best fit our needs. Both 30 ish white collar professionals. Likes scuba training and gambling. Also add really nice hotels, water sports, beach, and golf. Dislikes, Screaming Kids and cheap hotel (extra for water, drinks over priced). Which of these three offer the best scuba outfitters and casinos.

Turks/Provo has a great golf course and awesome scuba. Don't think there are casinos, but all else is geared toward pleasant adult-type activities. You can stay at Club Med or Breezes & meet a lot of singles. Check other comments and packages.

Provo has a casino in the Allegro.

Antigua does have some small casinos, though nothing like Vegas or Aruba. There are 1-2 golf courses on the island, too. Antigua has several shipwrecks in relatively shallow water that are popular for divers. For more info on Antigua, go to <BR> <BR>I hear you on the screaming kids thing. You'll probably be best off at a Club Med, which, unfortunately, Antigua doesn't have.
