Planning a trip to Caribbean 2013Hello, to everybody reading.
I'm right now on a long distance relationship. She's in Japan, and since last April I left to work in London.
Before I left, we talked about meeting in 2013 to rest and have fun for a month.
After a year of only messaging and phoning. We would meet in a bar, in a beach somewhere and then off to have a great month. Yes, I know it's kind of a long shot. And as I know firsthand, more often the fantasy is more beautiful and picture-perfect than the reality.
But a man can dream....
Anyway. I have no knowledge whatsoever about the Caribbean. Only recently, do I know it is a chain of islands. In fact, before I got on this website. I thought it only exist on the movies. I bought the Lonely Planet guide, but there's just too much information.
So, here I am. Asking you guys to help me plan a month vacation around the Caribbean. It should have everything the Caribbean stands for.
Now, if you kind people can please give me your ideas of a dream vacation in the area. And the places you're most interested in and would recommend so I can slowly build my own plan, It would be greatly appreciated. Budget should never be a problem.
What I'm asking for is inspirations. So let your imagination go wild, and write it here.
I thank you, in advance.
One question: Do I need a VISA? I'm Indonesian, she's Japanese. How does it work? One VISA for all the country in the Caribbean? Or each have their own?

Each country has their own visa requirements so, once you have decide what country(ies) do you want to visit, you should look for their visa requirements for Indonesians and for Japaneses.

2We have no way of knowing what is of the most interest to you. It's only slightly more vague of a question than asking a total stranger "tell me where in the world I should go on my next vacation".
Here's a link to a very helpful sight that has some useful tools to help you determine which islands are best for you. This webpage also has a good, concise summary of each of the touristed Caribbean islands.
My short list of favorites include:
Best Beaches - Anguilla, Turks & Caicos, St John USVI, British Virgin Islands, St. Barts, Antigua, Aruba
Best Hiking & Nature - Guadeloupe, Dominica, Grenada, Trinidad & Tobago
Best Diving - Dominica, Saba, Bonaire, Cayman Islands, Cozumel (Mexico)
Great All Around Choices with something for everyone - Barbados, St. Lucia
Best for Island Hopping - Virgin Islands; Guadeloupe-Dominica-Martinique-St. Lucia; St. Vincent & The Grenadines-Grenada.

You should try Almond Beach Club and Spa
