Hi! My boyfriend and I are planning a trip so the Caribbean or Central America in early March.

Unfortunaly I cannot find anything I like!! We want a nice hotel by the beach with a young and hip crowd. We've done the all-inclusive hotels where people settle for the cheesy nightly shows and seedy casinos, we're so over that!! We are looking for a place that is young and hip without being cheap since our budget is about 5000$, food included.

Does anyone have a recommendation?? Anything I find is either all-inclusive cheesy resorts or cheap inns with a small green pool three miles from the beach!! Help!!!!!!!!

My opinion is you are asking your questions to the wrong people here in this forum.
As far as I recognized,the travellers here are looking not for glizzy vacations.

Maby you should watch the TV shows about this party-hip-places.
I dont know witch one shows this for me horrendous reports,because I dont have a tv.

Hi,
Have you ever tried Nevis ? a true paradise. I suggest Hurricane Cove if you enjoy a private villa overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Maybe the Four Seasons Resort for a more exclusive place.
For something different, try Caye Caulker in Belize....beaches all over, nothing fancy.

Would you like to read my comment on another topic about Turks and Caicos please. I really would not like to be compared with ALL the people here. Maybe that's another website: backpackerspoint.com or so. ;)

Hi Utrecht,
maby you got my comments wrong,or I expressed my opinion wrong.
I did not say that here in this forum are only "cheap"travellers around.
I think the word HIP was the trigger for my answers.
If I offended somebody with my comments,
I'm Sorry,this was not my intension.
TP is very helpful while I plan what ever trip I have in mind,
there are very good infos about South America from you Utrecht and Bentivogli I printet out.
and,I'm not a Backpacker and I dont sleep in a dorm I like my privat Bathroom,so I pay some $ more and look for a good location.

You could find me for lunch at the marketplace and in the evening
dining with a bottle of good wine at a gooood restaurant.
happy St.Nikolaus
Marlis;)

Hi Marlis,

Probably I jumped to conclusions a little bit fast as well. It's probably because both topics were about some more luxurious, expensive or hip destinations. But actually what's hip? Hip is backpacking for one person, luxurious for the other and somewhere in between for the next.
