    Hello Danielle, I'm a hotel manager and have a property in Aruba and many other Caribbean islands. To be completely honest it all depends on your budget as the 4 islands are pretty mimetic. If you are looking for all inclusive go to Aruba, you probably won't find many options in the others. If you are a pro-diver go to Antigua (the best). Looking to rent a secluded villa? go to Barbados or even St Croix! Aruba-Curacao and Saint Martin offer the best food!

    We went to Barbados a few years ago for an anniversary. If you like the beach, but also need plenty of diversions-this is it. They have gorgeous caves, that are very well run and easy to access. A little tram will even take you down so you don't have to walk/crawl. Plenty of lights, and most hotel areas are within 30 minutes from airport. They even have a museaum to airplains with a concorde on display. Lots of culture (the fish market on Friday) and plenty or local cuisine or high-end cuisine. It was awesome!

    Aruba is Awesome! Wife and I traveled with a other couple and stayed at Amsterdam Manor Beach Resort. Very safe and chill. You can migrate downtown to Oranjestad. The beach is beautiful and the people are very accommodating. Make sure to book a beach dinner at Passions on the Beach around sunset. Another tip, if staying at Amsterdam Manor there is a Grocery store directly behind the hotel 5min walk that has a duty free Liquor store inside and you can get breakfast daily for under $10 for the both of you

    St Kitts and NevisSt Kitts and Nevis

    For a romantic honeymoon, but still with great activities and nice atmosphere, I would go to St Kitts and Nevis. With a strong Colonial Caribbean Plantation history, Both St. Kitts and Nevis have great converted sugar mill plantation house resorts, such as Ottley's Plantation Inn on St. Kitts or on Montpelier Plantation Inn or Nesbit Plantation. You would fly in and out of St. Kitts for international flights, and if you decided on one of the plantation hotels on Nevis, or even to visit Nevis, the hotels will bring you by ferry or you can take the public ferry. It is only 9 miles between St. Kitts and Nevis. Both islands are lovely, lots of hiking, nice beaches, lots of monkeys, neither are overrun by large chain resort hotels and both have a nice local feel. St. Kitts and Nevis have very rich volcanic soil and so a lot of fresh produce and fruits are grown right on the islands. St. Kitts and Nevis form a fully independent self ruling country, and the two islands have a distinct feel and culture all their own.

      You are so right about @Ottley's Plantation Inn, I was lucky enough to go there for an afternoon. It's open to the public, I didn't look at cost but I would stay there in a heartbeat. Also a bit more modern and very costly on the Northside of the island of @St. Kitts is @Kittitian Hill. Of course on Nevis there is the @Four Seasons and the previously suggested @Montpelier Plantation (Didn't get there but awesome looking). Ciao · (0 likelikes)

    Barbados is a beautiful choice and it involves a mixture of everything. The beaches are some of the most beautiful and for a honey moon i would recommend the west coast as its a calm beautiful luxurious area. The people of Barbados will be sure to make your stay comfortable and make you feel like your at home, not to mention the restaurants and local bars/eat-ins are full of amazing comfort food!

    Barbados is #1 for sure :)

    Aruba ... you can do all those activities. Great snorkeling, sailing, and hiking. Aruba is also out of the hurricane belt ...so bad weather rarely happens. Also the night life is abundant, esp for young couples.
