    Planning my next trip to the Caribbean with the significant other, and, given the wide range of folks who frequent these places, can anyone lend any insight? Went to Anegada this year, was nice and quiet, but the food was lacking (not all that varied, everything having had to be ferried over from Tortola).....will say the beaches were beautiful, snorkeling was nice (nice, not great)......

    From the Google images, it looks great.

    I went to the Dominican Republic a few years back and it was good. I like to travel from city to city with the locals. I guess it depends how you like to spend your time, in an all inclusive resort or with the locals mixing it up.

    Can't beat the waters, so blue and warm, with long shallow stretches.

    well, did an all-inclusive once, and came to the conclusion that since I dont drink, it was somewhat of a waste for us. And agreed, would rather do the same as you....'cept I usually rent a car and travel around that way.....thanks for the reply

    We used to go to the U.S. Virgin Islands every year. I used to rent a motorcycle since they drive on the wrong side of the road there even though the steering wheel is on the left like here. At least I was on the right side of the motorcycle.
