Need ideas for late Nov. 2002

My boyfriend and I (we're both 35) would like to take a week's vacation at the end of November. In terms of general geographic area, we would like an island with reliably good weather (hurricane likelihood low) that's warm enough for beach and swimming, and where the locals have a decent standard of living. Accommodations need to be clean, quiet and classy (but don't have to be luxurious), with decent food either on the premises or in places that we don't need a four-wheel drive to get to. A tennis court also needs to be not too hard to get to. We don't care for casinos or other nightlife but some quaint shopping would be a bonus. We'll be flying out of New York City and would love to spend less than $2000 per person including airfare. If you have any thoughts, please write!

Better standard of living--Cayman Islands, St. Barts and Aruba--that's your best choices.

I would suggest the Turtle Nest Inn (turtlenestinn.com) in Grand Cayman-nice quieter beach location--cooking facilities--affordable--very good travelers reviews-- see Where2Stay.com.

Turtle Nest Inn will arrange any excursions you want and you can play tennis at the "Cayman Islands Tennis Club" in South Sound near Turtle Nest. All info on website as mentioned previously. Also there's a list of restaurants on their website.

My travel agent stayed at Paradisus Punta Cana, Dominican Repbulic, a short time ago and really liked the resort and recommends it to her customers. There are six restaurants and plenty of activities.

Aruba is the fail safe for all travel agents during hurricane season and should meet your posted requirements.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic gets hurricanes and is not too developed while I think that even the Caymans have been whacked on occasion.

November is pretty late for storms??? Why not get your trip insurance and go to the best place that meets your needs.

St John's,Cayman's,Grenada,Bermuda, BVI's
