We love the Caribbean! We try to visit a different island each year for our Anniversary and have never been disappointed with any of our vacation destinations. This will be the first year we have decided to vacation in America for our anniversary. We are planning to visit Longboat Key. Please post a comment with restaurant suggestions if you have ever visited the island.....
Anguilla is probably the most beautiful place I have ever visited. The sand is literally like sugar and the water is completely clear.
We stayed at Cap Juluca and I would strongly suggest this resort for anyone visiting the island. However, the food at the resort is VERY expensive.
Grand Cayman is gorgeous and probably one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. We felt very safe traveling throughout the island and left the resort each night for dinner. Food and Wine are wonderful in Grand Cayman. We recommend the Wharf and the Ristorante Pappagallo.
We stayed at the Westin Casuarina Resort, which is located on Seven Mile Beach.
Seven Mile Beach is beautiful, but the resorts are not as secluded as on other Caribbean islands.
We swam with the stingrays while in Grand Cayman, but I DO NOT recommend this adventure. I was scared to DEATH! Some of the stingrays were 3 to 4 feet in width and one of them shoved me into the boat. I was terrified!
St. Thomas was very nice and I love visiting the Caribbean without having to go through customs.
We stayed at the Ritz Carlton, which was beautiful. We never left the resort for anything. I was actually a bit afraid of the downtown area so I really had no desire to venture away from the resort.
Everyone should visit the Atlantis Resort at least once. It was AMAZING!
We stayed at The Cove in Atlantis and I strongly recommend this hotel as you can have an ocean front room. Bobby Flay's Mesa Grill is also located inside this hotel and the food is delicious!
The Atlantis Resort will definitely NOT disappoint any visitor. However, I have to admit that the beaches of The Bahamas are not quite as beautiful as other islands of the Caribbean....at least in my opinion.
Turks and Caicos
Turks and Caicos is one of my favorites. The island is breathtaking......
We stayed at The Veranda Resort, which is all-inclusive.....a very rare find in the Caribbean.
This was our dinner view each night. If you are leaving the resort for dinner, then I strongly recommend Coco Bistro........one of the best restaurants in the Caribbean.
The water in Turks and Caicos is unmatched. Pictures can not do justice!
Turks and Caicos is definitely one of the most beautiful places in the world. I could never get tired of this view!
I am so ready for another vacation!
