..or Grand Cayman, definitely very safe, although expensive, compared to some other places, and not a huge amount to do, unless they are into diving or snorkelling.

How about Los Cabos? There is a direct flight from Atlanta on Delta. Some really beautiful resorts and it is safe. My daughter stayed at our timeshare for her honeymoon at the Westin and we own a house in the BVI. Send me a PM if you would like more information.

a month ago we were at Couples Jamaica, there were 4 weddings on the beach that week, no kids, there's tons to do, only 125 rooms, off-shore island, everything is included (even more inclusions than sandal's "we have the most inclusions" statement) and at a lower price. they provide butler level service to everyone, they knew my name and my drink by day 2 and were bringing drinks to me using the red flag in the sand system! All the off site excursions are paid for by the hotel including admission and transportation to margaritaville, dunns river falls, shopping, etc. all water sports and staff are on site and not contracted out so you can go when you want (within reason I suppose), the food was perfect at every one of the many restaurants, it was easy to make or change dinner reservations, top shelf booze, top entertainment, big rooms, the included wine was ok but we knew they had a secret list you had to pay for, but those wines were half of what they cost in Canada, we ordered from this list all week and it included a couple Mondavi's as well as our favourite Cakebread. Highly recommend this place. there are 4 couples resorts in Jamaica, 2 in Negril and 2 in Ocho Rios, we stayed in Ochi at Tower Isle, we heard that swept away in negril is also very good. good luck!

We went to Grenada for our 10th anniversary a few years ago. Off the beaten path, still relatively unspoiled, lot's of history and natural scenery, friendly people. There are some nice resorts, both large and small. (We stayed at Maca Bana.) Did a Grenadines day trip, which was one of the best days I've ever had in the Caribbean.

I would take a look at SXM with side trips to St Barts or Anguilla possible by fast ferry. SXM is easy to get to from US and the villas available are very competitive with hotels. Check out Jeff Berger's Everything St Maarten website, and he is a TTOL sponsor.

Puerto Rico is awesome, love it there. Close and reasonable as far as airfare etc. Dominican you need to do all-inclusive, from what I have heard you do not want to be roaming outside the resort. If I could do anywhere? Malcolm hit it spot on, St Barths! omg, just amazing!

After spending months making wedding decisions, my daughter and her husband really enjoyed honeymooning in an all- inclusive resort. The especially liked not having to search out off-site places for dinner every evening. They said the resort had different entertainment acts every night + dancing and plenty to do during the day. Not sure if they ever left the resort.

Here are a number of more difficult to get to Caribbean islands that are beautiful and relatively safe. Prices will vary, particularly on Mustique (high).

Anguilla
Mustique
Canouan
Bequia
Union Island
Mayreau (Salt Whistle Bay Club)
Palm Island

I went to T&C in February, and it was gorgeous. Plenty warm - we were in the water every single day. I would go back again in February in a heartbeat.

It depends on where you are from, I suppose, and weather varies from year to year, but the OP already said that they are looking only USVI, etc., and south.
