Culture and museums? Go to Curacao. curacao.com Lots of interesting museums, a downtown that looks European, terrific restaurants. Some good deals out there now too. If you can hold off till January, there's a cool new Hyatt resort opening....

It's got a nice volcano - Soufriere, and quite a few eathquakes. Other than than that it's very green and almost reminds people of Ireland. Not much to do, but good for lazing about.

Hey, thanks to both, those are great answers and certainly food for thought. Here's the thing: I want to get away from my rainy hometown and go somewhere tropical and I have 2 weeks off coming up, but I'm not the kind to lie on a beach for 2 weeks either............. so maybe I need to find an island with lots to do culture-wise. I mean I'd love to go to Paris or back to my good ol' Italy, but I need sun and warm weather and culture and great food......... What's unusual about Montserrat, anyway?

Wendy, I agree 100% with Cheryl, but I think we're missing the yacht charter possibilities in the islands. It's possible to visit St. Thomas, St. John and the British Virgin Islands on a sailing or motor yacht, fully crewed with a chef and including all meals at a very reasonable price. You'd have to fly into St. Thomas though to pick it up.

Wendy--it all depends on what you like. Casinos and shopping? Bahamas, St. Maarten. No casinos and shopping? St. Thomas. Great beaches? Turks + Caicos. Great music? Trinidad and Jamaica. Hiking? Tobago and Nevis. A quiet, sophisticated getaway? Nevis. Something truly unusual, and good for a budget? Montserrat. This year, though, there are great deals everywhere!

One of my favorite parts of the world!!! There are so many islands to choose from though............... let's say I'm on a budget and have to pick just one, can we do an informal kind of poll and figure out which is the best all-around island? like is there an "ideal" carribbean island? i know it's kind of a dumb question, but i'ts hard to pick !!
