I've just returned from 3 weeks in Haiti and want to post a quick summary here, before posting a more detailed report later this week hopefully.
This is mostly as a response to the excellent information I received here before going.
It's difficult to get much up-to-date information on Haiti, so anything is appreciated.
We used the 2013 Bradt guide, but even that is partly outdated.
Firstly I would like to tell people that Haiti is a wonderful though greatly impoverished country, and…
I plan to go sailing with 3-5 friends in the Carribbean from ~christmas 2016 to January 7th 2017.
We don't have a specific region in mind, the area around Guadeloupe (Dominica, Antigua, Barbuda,...) looks very appealing though.
Neither of us can sail, so we are looking for a good and knowledgable skipper and a boat (catamaran preferred).
Who has experience with a skipper, knows someone or has contacts?
thanks a lot

I am looking for a place to snorkel in the Caribbean. I want a place that is an easy single flight from the east coast. I already have my gear and everything. We want to snorkel that is the big thing and particularly with reefs and fish in a natural environment. We want a nice resort feel with the beach front pools. We don't really care for the cruise crowd type of people or the excursions that every single person does. Just a casual place to go snorkeling. We haven't really narrowed it down but…
How did you get there?
How long did it take?
How much did it cost?
How did you get back to Phillipsburg?
Was it hassel-free?
Not intersted in generic websites that say taxis and minibuses are plentiful, etc., I want proper information from people who have done this. Thanks and sorry if I sounded a bit snotty.
