My wife and I are having our 20th anniversary next July and we (and the kids)want to go to the Bahammas. We have been to Free Port before but this time we're thinking about going to Aruba (sp?). I'm not sure which hotel to stay at or the cheapest way to book the flights. As far as hotels go I like real nice ones, but the ones for millionaires don't really do it for me. Advice on this would really be appreciated, I'm ready to spend the money now. Thanks. Andy

FYI - there has been some "unrest" in Jamaica, and unpleasant crimes against tourists, particularly in outlying areas. Along with the Phillipines, I would recommend postponing tourism to the Bahamas until things calm down. You may want to check with the US State Deparartment for travel advisories - try: http://travel.state.gov/travel_warnings.html Despite the cautionary nature, happy 20th! How old are the kids? The Caribbean is magical for an early teen.

Forget the islands, go to Marco Island, Fl. Lots of things to do and no problems with the local folk!!!!

A travel agent pointed something out to me once. If you are going to a vacation destination (Aruba, etc.) check to see how many airlines service that destination. For a lot of the smaller islands, only one airline flies there. You will pay an arm and a leg to get there if there is no competetion. AFARR

Being on the west coast you could do Hawaii on the cheap. Sun, sand, ocean, it is all the same. Just a suggestion.
