Where to stay? Kids, snorkeling, food...

Hello all! We're a group of 4 adults, 2 kids (6&8) looking for an "affordable" Caribbean vacation, ideally including: snorkeling right off the beach, beachfront hotel, great food, other kids around (not tons, but the likelihood of some at least). I'd love a place with an 'international' vibe and maybe a small town to walk to. Hiking or some other activity a plus. We're not into AIs, Resorts, chain restaurants, etc.

We'd loooove to go to St. John (more for snorkeling than 'international' feel) but I'm thinking it's too expensive...so maybe the Bahamas would be better?

Thanks!

The Bahamas is close to the US, so airfare is reasonable. I would not stay in Nassau as it is too busy and not representative of the beauty of the Bahamas. Check out Cape Santa Maria Beach Resort on long island if you are looking for a beautiful beach and wonderful resort. Family friendly and very safe. Good luck.
