Where to go?

Hey...I am looking for a vacation in the Caibbean after June 1 for about a week. There will be 4 to 6 of us and are looking to scuba, snorkel and basically relax on the beach. We are looking to spend around $3000 or less per couple. We have experienced and like the convenience of an all-inclusive, but also enjoy b&bs if given the right place and opportunity to get places without issue. I am just a little overwhelmed with the options of both islands and then places to stay. If someone could point us in the right direction or let us know what they liked when they visited that would be great! Thanks!

Check out destinations in the USVI's or BVI's. Those islands have excellent beaches and some of the best diving and snorkeling sites in the Caribbean.

What is your departure airport? Sometimes that makes a difference in the suggestions people give to try to help you stay within your budget.

You could consider a crewed yacht charter in the BVIs. There are many private as well as companies like Moorings that offer this on Catamarans. It the the most relaxing vacation you will have and it's a blast sailing bar to bar or beach to beach. You have plenty of scuba and snorkel opportunities. It's a great thing to do with other couples. You could also look at doing a few nights at a hotel and a few nights on the boat.

I think the best option for you would be to charter a crewed catamaran and sail the Virgin Islands.
There are many great snorkeling and diving spots there, especially in the BVI.
Most catamarans offer all inclusive rates and with your budget you should be able to charter a nice boat.
Here are some catamarans: http://www.boatcaribbean.com/catamarans.php

Hope this helps.
