What resort/island offers the best value for what you get?
I am not cheap, but wondering which island or resort has the best overall values for what you get? Appreciate any input. Please consider, I don't drink, so this is not a factor.

I found Barbados a price friendly island.

Tobago of course, the U.S. dollar floats at 6.30TT to 1.00 U.S.

Good question. Where does Aruba fit in the picture?

If you can get a charter package to Aruba, you can get a good deal. ie...Funjet vacations or Travel Charter.<BR><BR>Some people say Aruba is very overpriced, but they have restaurants in all sort of price ranges.<BR><BR>Also, they have some resorts, that offer kitchenettes, such as LaCabana. So you can cook to save some money.

I would say either Aruba or Jamaica. If you plan to take advantage of the all-inclusive in regard to food and watersports, I feel that the resorts in JAmaica offer the best value. It is one of the cheaper islands to get to also.
