Spring trip with tweens, adventure & relaxation??


Would love some insight on a great trip for this Spring. I'm late in planning... we had been hoping to make an adventure trip in Costa Rica work, but for a variety of reasons we are going to have to punt that until next Spring. Instead, we are hoping to pivot to a Caribbean vacation where we can book hotel and airfare now, and worry about the rest later. Just too much going on in our current life to dedicate any additional time to planning! So, with that in mind...

For years we went to Tamarind in Barbados and LOOOOOVED it. Perfect mix of calm water, lots of water activities, beautiful beaches...etc. Kids are now 13 & 11 - so we're ready for a shift, maybe some adventure outings during the day. Have been to Anguilla when they were younger - loved it, but too sleepy for our crew this time around. Was thinking Jamaica - but the crime? Or, Mexico - but the crime?

Flying out of Philadelphia or NYC so should have plenty of options, traveling in late March, 2024. We love to hang out on the beach/pool during the day and use the hotel amenities like sailing, snorkeling, water-skiing, eat and repeat. Looking to stay away from large hotels, boutique and/or small feeling is our vibe. We would consider AI if we got all the great amenities and wasn't too pricey (we don't drink so it's a bit lost on us, other than the ease).

Look forward to hearing your thoughts!
Thank you!
