Eloping to the Caribbean - which island??

Jump to last reply

We are both in our 40s, and plan to elope to a Caribbean island next May or June. We'll likely stay for 7-10 days. What we're looking for --

*availability of quiet beachfront accommodations (villa or hotel) for $400 or less per night. Pool preferred.

*Uncrowded most of the time without a lot of cruise ship traffic everywhere

*relatively inexpensive on the island overall

*pretty, uncrowded beaches and lovely scenery besides beaches, as we are both photography hobbyists

*somewhere to snorkel, walk-in would be nice

*good food -- nice meals as well as good food shacks/low end meals

*charming, safe local town(s) with maybe a bit of shopping. Local art or food markets would be a bonus.

*A couple other things to do besides hang on the beach all day would be nice - maybe a place to hike, a historical site to visit, para-sailing, etc.

*We have no need for an active nightlife; just a place to have a few drinks and maybe listen to some music after dinner.

Obviously we'd also want to be able to get married there fairly easily (we are US citizens.)

So I ask you Caribbean experts --What are your thoughts on the island destination for us? I tagged a few areas we are looking at, but are still open to other islands.

Thanks!
