HI for Christmas?

We are looking to go on holiday during Christmas break thru New Years. We (myself and 2 daughters 21 & 24) are thinking HI. I hear it is expensive. We have been to Grand Cayman twice and find that expensive. What do you all think would be better? Or what other suggestions do you have?

Harbour Island is a wonderful place to be for Christmas/New Years. Like all islands, it's expensive (not St Barth's expensive but still pricey). Renting a house and cooking your own meals on occasion really helps the budget. Houses are typically less expensive than hotel rooms although most houses have a two week rental requirement that time of year.

That said, if you have the time, there is no island more charming than Harbour Island, particularly at that time of year!

We have been to grand cayman twice for Christmas and count that expensive, once in a hotel and then in a condo and cooked some meals at home which helped. How is the weather around christmastime in hi?

Having been to the Caymans, you're familiar with island prices. Somehow, being on Harbour Island with its charm and the absence of commercialism makes it seem more bearable. The weather in the Bahamas is much like the weather in Florida so one never knows. If there is a cold front in Florida, it usually hits the Bahamas as well. This past Christmas was one of the most beautiful on record but two years ago we wore sweaters over our bathing suits. We still swam but it felt more like a "Polar Plunge" than it did a relaxing dip at first. There are two house rental agencies on Harbour Island that I know of, Dunmore Realty and Island Real Estate. I have used them both and enjoyed working with each.

Good luck in your search!
