My wife and I are expecting to visit Anguilla next May. We are in the initial planning phase of our trip... but I have been lurking on the forum for several months gathering information. I have a few questions to pass by the experts...
1) We are going to be flying from the west coast (SFO) and I have found a 1-stop flight to SXM on United through Newark... arriving just before noon. The price is $706... which seems reasonable. Am I correct in thinking this way?
2) On arrival in SXM... we were considering either taking GB Express or taking a commercial flight on Anguilla Air Service. The flight is more expensive... but seems worth it after so much travel from the west coast. Would a flight be the best way to go?
3) For accommodations... I've narrowed it down to 3 choices. The first is Frangipani (1 bedroom suite - either 1A or 5A). The second is Meads Bay Beach Villas (Villa 1 - if they offer their stay 7 pay for 5 for this villa). The third is Cuisinart (Junior Suite). I know Cuisinart is a bigger resort... while the other two are much more intimate. For my wife and I... this vacation is going to be about relaxing. Which one is on the best beach and close to good restaurants? It really is tough to decided amongst these 3... they all look very beautiful!
4) For excursions... I am guessing there are companies that offer snorkeling tours? This is what my wife and I will be most interested.
Thanks for everyone's help! I am sure that I will have a few more questions as time goes by... but I think if I can get flights and accommodations squared away... we'll be well on our way!
