Aruba is your perfect place your wife is going to love it is very safe, Dominican Republic is not safe even if you are inside the resort i get robed there.

I've got this same scenario but the week after Thanksgiving, I'm going to Mexico in May, so I'm trying to shy away from there. I'm looking at T&C, Antigua, Aruba, or Barbados.

I want waves if possible, or at least some small ramps to launch off of. I can use frequent flyer miles to go to Aruba pretty cheapily, just worried that the riding near the hotels will suck so much that I'll have to drive to Boca Grandi.

Any other ideas? BEYC is a possibility too, but we have already been to St. Thomas and a day in the BVI's.

Forget Aruba offshore winds
T and c you will be driving to the other side of the island
Barbados has nice waves but no all inclusive at beach
I would say Cuba kayo guillarmo or kayo coco. But chop hop all week
Or check out st kitts mariott small waves chop hop
St Lucia also small waves and chop hop
I understand your problem my wife is the same
Maybe other guys will have more input

Yeah Dan, I'm leaning towards T&C just because I'm going in December and will hopefully get NE winds which will be side-on on Grace Bay.

I am going to T and c in november and then in febuary again.
I would say try to get an all inclusive towards the west end of grace bay as it curves back up towards the north and i bet the wind shadow is less more west on the bay
talk to big blue charters there they have the place wired.
i am going to head over to conch bar are on middle caicos to hit those nice looking waves.
I have a condo on provo to stay at but i think i like the look of north and middle caicos for kiting better, flats and nice big waves.
I will scope the place out when i am there.
maybe go with the big blue guys a few days

check out this resort
it is on the northern tip of t and c and freinds of mine say they had a great time kiting there.
wind is great becuase of its location
i have no idea if it is all inclusive though.

P.S. it is weird that there really isn't a kick but locations website about t and c kiting locations
a couple about provo locations but not really any in depth north and middle kiting info.
maybe they like to keep it secret :)
