Hi everyone! I am planning the annual January getaway for my husband and me. Right now, it is a toss-up between a smaller hotel (not an AI giant) in Negril and someplace in Roatan (haven't chosen a specific place). We have never been to either place (we have been to Tulum and Punta Cana). I would love advice from you about the choice between Negril and Roatan.
My wish list includes warm days and evenings on a beautiful, white-sand beach with beautiful, turquoise water. We love to kayak, swim, read on the beach, try local food, learn something about where we are, and enjoy a mojito or two. And, I would rather not have to look at cruise ships or jet-skis, if possible.
I appreciate any advice you might give - thanks in advance!
