I would single out Aruba, lovely people, only 16" of rain per year but property prices weren't cheap when we lasted visited 3 years ago. It is a small island and easy to get about.
I'll come at the question from a different angle. All the Caribbean Isles I have been on are extremely easy to get around, as the taxi's are in abundance, but as for the most expensive, I've never been charged for setting foot on any of them....Wilba.
Stick to the ship's organised trips that you could not put together ashore.
Otherwise the taxi drivers are all registered and know exactly where to take you. We have always found them delightful and a lot cheaper. 20$ per person 1/2 day is the order of things.
The exception is Jamaica - stick to the organised trips!
Agreed, But tho' its not on an island I'd be inclined to add Caracas to the exceptions. Chris.
Just take a look at the ships excursions and see what you like and then look at the price. Normally in all the caribbean there are local taxis and good value, they will stop anywhere you like to take a photo,
If you want to go to the beach there are usually small open sided buses take about 20 people and they will take yoy to the beach and bring you back , they are good, reliable and registered by the country. our favourite in St Thomas is Megans Bay well worth a visit. One trip which would recommend is in Grenada to the spice area. Otherwise do it on your own.
Thank you for all your input ,looks like we shall have no bother getting around .
Just a thought but is your Hamilton the Bermuda one and are you sussing out the opposition. My vote for the dearest is Mustique. ......Agree totally with taking ships tours or taxis from inside the port in Jamaica and don't even bother with La Guaira let alone Caracus, Be careful on Trinidad and surprisingly the Bahamas. Cartegena is a bit dodgy too so I suppose that all over the Caribbean you should keep your hand on your h'penny..... Neil.
I wish !!!!!!!!! my Hamilton is in Scotland lol .
