We went on a tour and to a beach by private taxi and received a wonderful massage for only $10 per person. There were a lot of vendors on the beach, however. We also hiked to a very pretty waterfall, and again, there were many vendors on the way up the mountain.
Don't Miss: Waterfall and beach

Basseterre, St. Kitts

Our favorite island in the Caribbean. A must see. Take a tour around the island and then you can snorkel on a jetty off the beach.
Don't Miss: View from the mountain that separates the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea

Excellent port and shopping. Lots to do. Beautiful. We went on a cruises.com New Horizons St. John's sailboat snorkeling full day excursion with Italian lunch cruise. Excellent excursion,food,drinks, and staff! Special kudos to Captain Marques and crewman, John! Very accommodating and helpful. They were wonderful hosts and highly adept sailors. Bravo!!

Labadee (Cruiseline Private Island)

5 out of 5
Very nice beach and good food at lunch. The zip line was too expensive at $85 per person, so my husband decided not to do it.

Pros: Ports, entertainment, and cruises.com excursion. Large stateroom with couch.

Cons: Long line of cars entering terminal area for embarcation.
