So we're also thinking of St Kitts! Maybe St John's if there's enough to do!

If you sail at all or are interested in learning although if you aren't there's still plenty to do, I would highly recommend Bitter End Yacht Club on Virgin Gorda. St. Lucia is as mentioned earlier also a beautiful island. If you are golfers, St. Croix has several courses as well as the usual sun and fun activities.

I would start by listing what you liked in SXM and then finding another Island. You cannot imagine the simple things that you take for granted here and that you won't find on many other Islands

Great idea! The perfect place would be what St Maarten was 20+ years ago!

That would be Cuba! Very beautiful and safe, but the dining is not as good.

Here's another vote for St. Kitts/Nevis. My wife & I have been there at least 7 times in the past 15 years. Both have beautiful botanical gardens. Historical attractions include the homes of Admiral Lord Nelson and Alexander Hamilton. Rainforest hikes are available on both islands as well as a trek up the sides of Mt. Liamuiga, St. Kitts inactive volcano. Golf is available on both islands. St. Kitts is home to the Marriott Resort and Casino while Nevis boasts the 4 Seasons. There are other destinations as well but those are the biggies. Very little fast food and lots of local places to eat. Some of them are quite good and are on a level with restaurants on St. Maarten. They are just not as numerous. Only a couple of timeshares and they are not affiliated with RCI. It is a bit more expensive to get there from the states than traveling to St. Maarten. That is the only thing keeping us from returning but we may bite the bullet soon and venture there again!!

Well, We'll be going to Antigua next year! Now I just have to find an Antigua forum to haunt!

Just curious as to how you came to decide on Antigua?

I'm with you on the 20 years ago.

Food was great and beaches and roads not crowded. :-)

And as a bonus the dollar was better than 1 to 1
