I’m trying to decide where to vacation in early summer ’08. My family and I ( 2 adults, 15 yo boy, 13 yo girl) have been to Sanibel, FL the last several years and we absolutely love it but would like a change next year. Something a little more tropical/Caribbean with good snorkeling/scuba would be ideal. Surfing would be great but not essential. The peace and quiet of Sanibel with the lack of high-rises, amusement parks and casinos is what we crave. The convenience of some decent casual restaurants and small groceries would be a nice plus. We’ve really become spoiled with the large choices of condos right on the beach in Sanibel. St. John USVI looks like heaven to me but the lack of accommodations on the beach is disappointing.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
