    Nicest climates (I know this probably depends on the time of year), tourist attractions, hotels, local scenery, etc.

      I know it's not technically the Caribbean but the Dutch Netherlands Antilles are amazing. These are the ABC islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao).
      Personally, I do not like Aruba because there are so many hotels and it's so Americanized (you may but everyone is different), but I looooove Bonaire because the diving is spectacular. If you are certified, this is the place to go. There's not really anything to do other than dive on this island (it is only ten square miles or so) but what's under the water more than makes up for what's above it.
      If you are into hotels and nightlife and amazing white sand beaches then Aruba is pretty nice, if crowded. I can recommend the Marriott as that is where I stayed but I cannot stress enough to stay away from their beer Balashi. I shiver even now just thinking about it.
      Hope this helps you and good luck if ya go!

      Well, most people think Bermuda is in the Caribbean (it's not). But, Bermuda is AMAZING. You will never find more beautiful beaches (the sand is pink) and feels like you are walking on clouds. There is plenty to do and see- and the people are friendly. Very VERY tourist friendly.

      The climate is pretty much the same across the Caribbean. The summer months are the most rainy but even then there's plenty of sunshine. The summer is less crowded than the Dec. to  Apr. peak tourist seasons.

      If you're looking for lots of attractions, full-featured resorts, a a choice of  fine restaurants then a more sophisticated island like Barbados or Jamaica is the best bet. For a more relaxed experience Dominica and St. Vincent & the Grenadines (including Bequia which was mentioned in another reply) is a better choice.

      <snipped - no promotional links in the forums> does a good job is highlighting the differences between the islands.

      Scenery wise, all the islands are beautiful!

      A Caribbean cruise is a great way to see several islands in one trip. You can always return for a longer stay if you fall in love with one place.

      Have a great trip, wherever you decide to go smile

        Thanks for wishing us well smile  Still haven't decided yet.  A cruise might be on the list though. It'd be nice to check out a couple of places, if even for a short time.

          Cruise to the Bahamas with a stop in grand cacos(spelling...) best vacation my fam and I have ever had. We used carnival -very kid friendly and the food in dining hall was better than 5 star restaurants!

      I thought Dominica was quite lovely.  I also enjoyed St. Thomas.  Would really love to visit the caribbean again some time.

      I favor Jamaica, because it's a welcoming and beautiful place to take vacations, there are so much to experience there. Beautiful beaches, clubs, restaurants, and most of all the history and experiences you will learn from the people that has over come overwhelming odds during Jamaica's independence in 1962.

      The Caribbean is beautiful. Many islands to choose depending on personal interests, likes and dislikes. I would say Puerto Rico, but it wont be objective.  Hahaa

    There are a string of lesser known islands called the Grenadines in the Caribbean. I have visited 2-of these beautiful islands, St. Vincent, and Bequa. What I loved about them is the "lack" of tourists and big hotels that cater to vacationers. The islands are beautiful and can be enjoyed in their natural, unspoiled state. Check them out on fb at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bequia/96248304757

      +1 million. Have been. Especially St Lucia and St Vincent. Found out that Maria Island is home to the worlds single most collective iguana population, awesome turtles and the occasional whale. Some very fun people, too. Our guide kept teasing us about being more friendly saying, "This is New York, just better weather, food, a volcano, rain forest --and happy people." He was so right. Must go back --and definitely see this Bequa.

    I think my favorite overall is Antigua. Best of all worlds.
    Also had a great trip to St. Kitts and its sister island Nevis.
    Barbados, as stated above, is more tourist developed.
    For stunning natural beauty, I liked St. Lucia. I believe the movie Dr. Doolittle was filmed there. But the side of the island where we stayed had extremely rough surf so we couldn't go in the water.
    St. Martin/Maarten is kinda neat because you have two distinct cultures (French, Dutch) on the two sides.

    Also agree with suggestion of Bermuda. It is not Caribbean but British feel. Best beaches. Sophisticated but accessible. Driving mopeds around the island is so fun!!

    I love all the places and much rather suggest you take the Caribbean cruise and visit the best ! a 15-day cruise would cover atleast 6-7 islands and the most you can see in one trip!

    Caribbean is one of the favorite destinations with fine beaches, turquoise water, sultry warm breeze, iridescent sands, palms, delicious foods, topical wildlife and adventure that attract many visitors over the world. Some best eye-catching places to visit in Caribbean are Aruba, Jamaica, Cayman Island and the most beautiful Cuba, known for its colorful and natural beauty.
