My Husband and I, our four kids,and our friends and their kid and another couple , 11 in total are going to the Keys in March for one week. I have done lots of digging on the internet for the best possible place to stay for your money and I was wondering if anybody out there could give me some advice. I would really appreciate it, as I am very confused. On the one hand the upper keys have more condos that hold that many people for not too bad a price, but the water is darker and more murky. We are looking for white sandy beaches and clear water to swim and snorkel in, which seems to be in or near key west but the pricing is out of our budget. So I was wondering if anybody could give us an idea of a reasonable spot to go like somewhere in the middle to lower keys maybe. We would like a pool and if possible a beach nearby(preferably in walking distance). Also if anyone knows which of the four dolphin swims are the best, because it's been a long time dream of my daughters and myself. From what I've read, Dolphin's Plus has a good program, then I'm only reading about it. To make this all possible, we have to be budget conscious, so if you have any input ,we would be extreamly grateful!!!
