Suggestions where to go for young women

My friend and I are planning a Caribbean trip this fall. We are both (newly) single and in our mid-thirties. We are not looking for a "singles resort", but are looking for somewhere where there is enough to do, without being "too much" (i.e. no "Hedonism" resorts)! Something along the lines of Key West, but not Key West. Thanks!

Lots of places in Jamaica & cheap. Go to negril.com and it will tell you all about the hotels, prices, etc. Or Isla Mujures, St. Thomas...

LOts and lots of places in the Carribean that would fix the bill. Mayan Riviera or Cancun in Mexico, Aruba, St. Martin...

If you get more specific in your priorities, you might be able to narrow down the recommendations.

For example, snorkeling? All inclusive or lots of restaurants? Hiking, cultural activities, nightlife, shopping etc?

For activities, I am looking for snorkeling, maybe kayaking, nice quiet beaches, good restaurants with a little bit of nightlife (nothing too extreme - just a bar or two). Also, somewhere with a little bit of a town and or/history, so there is something to do if the weather is not nice, or just to get out of the sun. No all inclusives - I like to get out and explore. Also, the ideal place would be walkable or accessible via scooters, so car rental wouldn't be necessary. Thanks!

I agree with jen24's suggestions - Isla Mujeres or Negril.

Good value for the money, lots of places to stay, and a funky fun vibe.

I think Negril sounds perfect and there are some good deals now for the fall. I would recommend Coco La Palm hotel - great location, great staff, safe. I stayed there with my daughter last year and there were several sets of single women there - they seemed to have a blast. They are a short walk to some great restaurants, bars, sunset cruises and cabs and drivers are easy to come by for excursions to falls, river cruises, etc.

I am in the same situation. Looking to go somewhere with a friend over Christmas. Any suggestions on places to stay in Isla Mujeres?

Hi Noonoo,

Sure:

Na Balam - $135-$175
Media Luna - $85-$125
Secreto - $150-$200
Villa Rolandi - $350-$400
Maria del Mar - $85-$110

IM is a GREAT place for a low key party scene without the over-the-top Cancun atmosphere.
