The region is located southeast of North America, east of Central America, and to the north and west of South America.Situated largely on the Caribbean Plate, the area comprises more than 7,000 islands, islets, reefs, and cays. The West Indies consist of the Antilles, divided into the larger Greater Antilles which bound the sea on the north and the Lesser An

Monica S :
"7,000 islands, islets, reefs, and cays. The West Indies consist of the Antilles, divided into the larger Greater Antilles which bound the sea on the north and the Lesser Antilles on the south and east (including the Leeward Antilles), and the Bahamas. Geopolitical, the West Indies are usually reckoned as a sub region of North America and are organized into 28 territories including sovereign states, overseas departments, and dependencies. At one time, there was a short-lived country called the Federation of the West Indies composed of ten English-speaking Caribbean territories. The Caribbean islands are an island chain 2,500 miles (4,020 km) long and no more than 160 miles (257 km) wide at any given point. They enclose the Caribbean Sea.[1] In the English-speaking Caribbean, someone from the Caribbean is usually referred to as a "West Indian," although the phrase "Caribbean person" is sometimes used."

Going to go somewhere in the Caribbean thinking St. Lucia any better ideas? Also want to take someone with me broke up with my girlfriend and feel it’s a bit full on going to a girl I know and ask a question like that out right, bit full on!

SeXii.MaMii :
"Well, no ideas on another place, but if you want to ask someone, just ask them. The worse they can do is say no, and even if they do, you're still going to the Caribbean."
beackus :
"I've been to San Juan, St. Thomas, and St. Maartin...all were great!!! I'll go w/ you!"
dbharrold :
"Cuba, awesome, full of history, friendly happy people, virtually crime free. Havana is one of the most vibrant cities in the world. If you like to dive you can dive in the Atlantic on the north coast and the Caribean on the south coast. Viva Cuba!"
lunasage :
"WTF???? Is there a question in there other than suggestions of where to go?? If so, you had best learn how to communicate better."
hah :
"I went to st. Lucia and I would not go again...I have been all over the place between cruises and just travel and my favorite islands were turk and caicos...loved Tuquiose...it was the best...best beaches, people and so on...it is a tad pricey but they all are...it is worth it...happy trip..!!!"
kimone m :
"well if you really want to go some where extremely beautiful Barbados and Jamaica those are two beautiful Caribbean countries. if you want to go there and have fun take one of your guy friends or girlfriends.that's a good trip to take your mind off things."
LOST_N_DC :
"The Atlantis in the Bahamas is really, really nice and full of fun things to do on the resort site. Also, try Jamaica....(Montego Bay or Ocho Rios)....very romantic and beautiful as well."
Vanessa :
"First.... you need to work on your punctuation ...... like.. your commas, periods.... that was a freakin run on sentence. I had to read your question like 3 times before I understood what you where trying to say. Take a dude...... you guys will have more fun meeting girls out there~!!!"
Disco Dolly :
"If your stuck for someone to come with you I will. lol I think it depends what your looking for in a holiday. Somewhere like St Lucia may be a bit depressing when your just getting over a break up. Maybe try somewhere like Cancun Mexico? I went with a friend and we had a ball..........also good for boys holidays!"
rebecca morgan :
"Well if you are paying I will go!!!!"
wang eyed lil :
"Go to Thailand instead, cheaper, better, and you wont need to take a girl.... that would be like taking coals to Newcastle......."
shellysnapz :
"go alone...see the sights, you never know who you might meet while your there.....have a great time..."
RED NIGHT :
"go to dominican republic is beautiful and romantic"

"jamaica"
Playful~Beauty :
"Bermuda is the place to be hun, they got the best beaches and don't worry about someone to take with you. I am sure you will find someone there. Have fun and do enjoy the sun for me too please."

"That is so romantic! well ive been to all the islands and they all rock!"
Miss-Fit :

Anywhere island you can get a decent job with good pay? Like if you were from the UK. I speak good spanish and english Also a qualified lifeguard

Suzette P :
"if you are qualified Cayman Island, Bahamas, or Trinidad"
kapn :
"You can get a job...but the pay is poor and its not decent....lots and lots of cheap labor in the Caribbean..... You need to be a professional and a local."
Richard K :
"ISpeaking Spanish will help however good jobs are few and far between unless you have a unique talent. If you have a background in hospitality and tourism you might check your Tour wholesalers in the U. K."
jachian :
"Trinidad and Tobago. (oil industry) See if you get a job with British Petroleum(BP) or British Gas (BG). If not there are other areas to get into that are decent. But oil pays the best !!"

Here's the crunch. Yes, you may get a seven day cruise to the eastern Caribbean for two for under $1000 and that is an extremely good price. But when doing cruise ship reviews, do some homework on the on board expense. In some cases, it can set you back quite a bit.
