Tulum in January; May is up for grabs right now -- Out Islands? Grenada? Saba? Nevis? I just can't decide!; and Jost van Dyke/Anegada next November (and this November too!)

Congratulations EJ

Have a wonderful time - heck, how could you not

As for me - with a second house that needs a LOT of work (if you think no plumbing, heating and little insulation - you will be close to understanding the amount of work we need to do) No travel next year perhaps in 2010

I did post a link to the Purple House a month or so ago

Just a thought... if you are planning to come in the peak winter season... don't delay.... here in Cayman at least we are already seeing a) full flights / airfares going up on remaining seats, and b) sold out dates at resorts.

Looks like with the passport problems last year, there is a lot of pent up winter demand.... so don't wait until the last minute for a deal, book right away if you really want to come this winter

Like KVR, we are trying Curacao in April. We are flying on free tickets and wanted to get the most bang for our buck. Delta flies to Curacao from our area with only one stop. We were attracted by the Dutch architecture and the aquarium.

I have enjoyed reading this thread over again this morning!
Glad to hear Conch Charters mentioned by stjohncaptain. A group of women friends and I are chartering with them for a week sailing the BVI!
We have a group of 8 friends, no husbands, going to be a blast! And before that, I will be spending the winter months in Vieques. We hope to get a little time to hop to another island or 2 during that stay.

Virgin Gorda in February - it's a new island for us and we're hoping for good snorkeling, good food and relaxation.

Maybe not 2008, but STJ tomorrow!!!!! I have a feeling we will end up in STJ again in May, November, or both. It's going to be interesting to see what happens to Cruz Bay after The Grande Bay Resort opens. Also the Sirunusa condo complex. At least most of the island is still unspoiled due to being largely National Park. I have to get up at 4:00am and sleep feels no where near.

Oooooh look how many places Fodorites are visiting next year!

I sure hope some (if not all!) of you will come back and either show us your photos or tell us how your trips went!

I'm especially hoping Lucyp will write a trip report for us about her trip to Cuba. ;-D

My "Fairy Godmother" of an aunt is looking into taking a small family group to Grand Cayman the first week in March. Does anyone know if any of the smaller tour operators (boats mostly) deal with limited mobility people? My adventurous spirit is hampered by my limited mobility unless I find a kind soul to help hoist me aboard.
We're not tied to GC necessarily if there's another island that has more accessible things to do. Thanks for any responses!!! Beth

Hi Everyone & Happy Holidays:

Looks like I'll be going to Nevis for the first time (checking in on my mother in law) in Jan.

Next I'm thinking a quick trip to ST to & hang out in the BVI's on day trips to mix it up for my birthday in Feb. Day charter & beach jumping will be the plan.

& like Mah1980 I'll be on a 8 day tour of Paris with a local tour group in May.

Safe and Happy Travels everyone!

Like LovetheCape and Birdie, we're off to The Buccaneer on STX in February (our 9th visit!). Already counting the days--65. And then our other favorite ritual in January is to have a fire in the fireplace and vote for which restaurants we all want to eat in on each night. WE go during the busy week so know that getting reservations in advance is a good idea.

Just like and SherryB, both my husband and I will be celebrating the big 40 next year. We would like to go on a trip in between the two of our B-days since they are only one month apart. Our short list includes the Mayan Riviera, Aruba or St Martin. This will be a shorter trip than usual but I'm already looking forward to it.

Exuma or Long Island (bahama out islands) in May, have not decided between the two.
