Help with Caribbean Vacation

spikec(z7GA)October 4, 2005

I've got a few days to burn on vacation and am looking for any recommendations where I can visit:

1. A cacao plantation

2. A vanilla plantation

3. A coffee plantation

4. Lots of Plumeria

I know the big island of Hawaii has all this, but it's too far to go for only a few days. Any ideas?

Thanking you in advance,

The Caribbean islands, especially ones with rainforests. St. Lucia comes to mind.

That's funny you'd say St. Lucia. We're headed there next week :-)

I visited Grand Bahama Island about 10 years ago, and had a wonderful time at Garden of the Groves. I just checked out their website, and it says that it is currently closed for renovations, but anyone wanting to visit a SPECTACULAR tropical garden should bookmark this site. I've visited lots of gardens on several Hawaiian islands, and Garden of the Groves has them all outclassed for sheer beauty.

Go to
Click on "Nature" activities, and then scroll down to the paragraph with the picture of the sea bird to find the link to Garden of the Groves.

I'd suggest St. Lucia too, or maybe Grenada.

If you go onto Orbitz and check out the resorts in St. Lucia they have a lot ofinformation about what's available and what things cost and about sevices there too. I am thinking of going there this fall. Still trying to decide between St. Lucia and St.Croix. Cheryl
