Best of the Caribbean
I would never ask readers to do my work. Unless they want to. Here's the deal: We're constantly asked, "Where should I go in the Caribbean?" I'm trying to put together a definitive list of which islands are best for those looking for specific experiences.
I plan this week to begin investigating at least 10 categories, including best for golfing, for history and culture, for nature, for nightlife, for families, for beaches, for cheapskates, and for shopping -- meaning both bargains on duty-free type items and local products like folk art.
I'll be drawing on my own experiences and those of my colleagues, and will grill experts on various topics and islands, but if you'd like to weigh in, I'd appreciate the insights.
Of course, most islands have something to offer in every category, but we'd like to highlight those that are special in some way in a given category. When it comes to something like golf, the answer might be resort-specific, but for the most part we'd like to keep our focus island-wide.
So, if you know some islands, and think one is better than most for one of the particular activities mentioned above, give me your ideas, and tell why.
Beware, though: Glancing over my shoulder in this way might be a little like watching sausage being made, as the idea runs up against facts and reality.
