Upscale Caribbean--Downscale Prices

  From the Anguilla Local News - Site Map.

The April 15th, 1997 issue of Travel Smart newsletter (Dobbs Ferry, NY 10522) contains a report by Betty Lowry, who discovered that Anguilla (plus St Barts and Nevis) are not just "hideaways for the rich and famous." For example:

"The best rates are between April 15 and December 15. Temperatures are mild year-round, thanks to trade winds. What's Free? Beaches, including those outside the poshest hotels, are open to all and uncrowded except in high season. Parades, festivals, regattas are free. What's Almost Free? Small, one-of-a-kind museums charge nothing to $5 per adult, children half-price or free. Music by local and visiting artists in schools, churches, town hall, day trips to other islands -- charge small amounts. Sounds funky, but its all fun. Best Sleep. Sonesta Beach Club has a "Discover Anguilla Getaway" package Apr 7 to Dec 22 for just $99 p/p dbl. 1-800-SONESTA and ask about other deals."
This well-written article also suggests you avoid eating at the San Juan airport if your flight is delayed. Instead of a meal voucher, ask for an $11 Taxi voucher and go to the Metropol in Isla Verde for Cuban food (5 minutes) or Punta Las Marias for Argentinian beef.  Revised: September 04, 1997
