Default Southern Carribean

Will be going to the So. Carribean in Dec. and would like to get feedback on what excursion we shouldn't miss, we will be going to Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua , St. Thomas and St. Croix, leaving out of San Juan. Thanks for the info.

i can help with a couple of suggestions: San Juan: walk around Old San Juan - visit the fort, you can watch the ships come in from here. Tour the rainforest, or visit the Barcardi Factory. St. Thomas- take the water taxi from Red Hook Harbor over to St. John's island for the day, Trunk Bay beach is amazing, you can snorkel on the trail here. Make time to do some shopping in downtown Charlotte-Amalie, - take the tram to the top of the island for a magnificient view. I would steer clear of Maegan's Bay Beach - very, very touristy.

Saw your post--are you going Christmas week? We're going Christmas week from San Juan--16 of us; 6 kids rest adults. Here's what we've booked online so far--mostly from reading up on excursions and various boards:

1. St. Croix - Buck Island Snorkeling
2. Barbados -- Five Star Catamaran and Snorkeling
3. St. Lucia -- 1/2 of us are going 4 x 4 excursion, 1/2 we're not sure what
4. Antigua -- dolphin encounter (us with our kids)
5. St. Thomas -- Submarine

Hope this helps
