You can find what's on your list on all thoe islands mentioned in your "tag". Each of those islands are different. Your first step should be to select the island. Go to the "Destinations" link at the top of this page, click through to the Caribbean and read the summaries of each island to see which one most appeals to you. Don't worry if you find them all interesting as that's the beauty of the Caribbean - you can visit one on this trip and visit another for your next vacation. Remember one island is not beter than another, they are just different.

Once you select the island you can than start looking at resorts that fit your needs and budget (by the way, when asking advice on a travel forum it's always helpful if you tell us what your budget is for airfare, food and lodging as there is a very wide range of hotel/resort prices on most islands).

By the way, after you select your island you can use the search feature on this or other travel forums to bring up recent posts about that island and it's resorts.

Do some basic research and then come back here to post specific questions. Remember, we are not mind readers, we don't know you and what you like so you have to tell us in order for us to be of assistance.

The place I would want to be is Barbados. It has it all. Nightlife, all kinds of activities, so many places to explore, wonderful restaurants. Magnificent! We stay at the Hilton there. Any other questions, I would be happy to assist you in any way I can.

Look into St. Kitts and Nevis. Beautiful islands with very friendly people. It is not as commercialized as Aruba, St. Maarten, or Barbados.
