My wife and I decided that for Christmas this year, we're going to surprise our kids and give them a tropical vacation as their main present from us (of course Santa will still leave tons of gifts). Our plan is to leave the morning after X-mas day and fly down to one of the tropical islands for a full week where we'll ring in the new year.
Here's the problem, I have never been to any of the Caribbean Islands other than the Bahamas. My opinion of the Bahamas; if you're not staying at Atlantis, don't go. Atlantis is a beautiful resort, for adults and kids. We considered going back to Atlantis, but we would like to go somewhere different. I've been doing a lot of research on the Caribbean Islands and I've come up with the following list as the 5 best Caribbean Islands to visit. Please let me know what you think of this list. If you're a travel agent or you've been to the Caribbean, please share your thoughts.
