If you are a beach bum, Aruba has great beaches..Try Palm Beach.
In Dominica, there are many eco touristy excursions you can do, Really no shopping on this island to speak of...
And I have to agree, getting all your ducks in a row is a good thing, but do leave room for serendipity....Sometimes the most fun, can be just doing your own thing...have a ball!
Trip, with her book & tea!
