    Definitely buy trip insurance!  I’m a pretty crazed scuba diver.  Curacao has much better diving than Antigua.  Really, if diving and snorkeling are important, I don’t recommend Antigua. 

    In Curacao, I’d suggest you look at the Marriott (more “american” type service) or the Kura Hulands’s Beach resort (more remote and romantic) http://www.kurahulanda.com/en/lodge

    Another place I’d consider if it were my honeymoon: 

    Anse Chastanet in St. Lucia – beautiful property, romantic, great food, good diving and snorkeling  http://www.ansechastanet.com/  Their beachfront rooms don’t really sit on the beach, but have nice garden views and are the least expensive!  The food is awesome for an all inclusive.  If you aren’t a big drinker, this is a great choice.

    Another important consideration is flight time.  What city are you departing from?  A direct flight will make life so much easier.  Grand Cayman, Maya Riveria/Cancun/Cozumel and all of the Virgin Islands also have good diving and snorkeling.

    My fiance and I just vacationed in Curacao this past April and we loved it. We stayed at the Curacao Marriott Beach resort and took taxis into Willemsted each day. Unlike many other Caribbean destinations, I felt like it offered a great mix of beach vacation with historical site seeing. I will warn you in advance, though, that the Marriott’s room’s are just okay, but the pool and beach area are fantastic.

    If you go to Curacao, let me know if you want info about historical sites and restaurants in Willemsted.
