Planning a Family Reunion - Caribbean - ideas?
    #1781442 - 08/05/03 01:45 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

So I have to plan a reunion for 2005 summer and the family wants it to be in the Caribbean. Now its 12 adults, 7 kids and we want something that suits a famliy atmosphere and has a lot of activities.

I was wondering if anyone here had any good experiences with resorts in the Caribbean that they could recommend, or if you have heard of any great all inclusives.

Here is one from Beaches in Turks & Caicos that I'm considering, although I haven't recieved the quote yet I'm assuming its not the cheapest around but it seems to have all the things we need:

You can't beat the weather in Aruba. They practically guarantee great weather. We stayed at the Holiday Inn and had an all-inclusive deal. There were activities for the kids at the hotel. As far as tourism.....well they have bent trees, and an underwater trip that was pretty cool. Aruba is not a pretty island as they hardly ever get any rain. Been to Bermuda, Barbados and Antigua. They are all beautiful islands...lush foliage, but they get plenty of rain.
Oh, by the way, there is gambling on Aruba.
Wherever you decide, have a great time

Just a little nervous from the fall.

Cabarete, on the north coast of the Dominican Republic -- the windsurfing and kiteboarding capital of the Caribbean.

Inexpensive, safe, lots of stuff to do other than watersports. Be prepared to restrict yourself to alcohol as the sole mind-altering drug, though. Unlike virtually every other Caribbean island, the authorities here are VERY strict about pot and coke and X and such. You won't find anyone offering to sell you drugs, and asking around is a really stupid idea. I'm serious.

But if you can handle no pot for the length of a vacation, you'll have a blast. Be there or be square.

Hehe, no worries on that my family is about as straight as can be.

Is it a good spot for a family reunion? Cause we have 7 kids coming ranging from 2yrs old to 13yrs old.

kids always drag the adults down...just find a place in the carribean that's fun for the adults and leave the kids in the hotel room or either at the hotel's arcade or something :grin:

Thor asks:

Fo shizzle, ma nizzle.

Cause we have 7 kids coming ranging from 2yrs old to 13yrs old.

So they'll be from 4 to 15 by the time y'all get here? As BoO says, kids always drag the adults down no matter where you go, especially when the range is from toddler to angry teen. Let's put it this way -- Cabarete is as good as any place in the Caribbean, and better than most.

She speaks the truth, if you have money to burn go to Bermuda, second IMHO would be Barbados, and Aruba is guaranteed to be a great vacation!

The bus came by and I got on that's when it all began!
