Mustique

by happynomad »

Well, the thing about Mustique is that the vast amount of people who vacation there rent villas. So if you can get enough people together to rent one of the less expensive ones on the island, it can be affordable. And a lot of people who visit that area of the Caribbean do it by boat. Believe it or not, that can be cheaper than land accommodations in this region. Though I hear that Bequia, which is another island in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and apparently gorgeous, too, is MUCH more affordable.

 

In Response to Mustique:[QUOTE]

A friend just returned from this island and said it was the most beautiful place she's ever been. But looking at the prices, I was pretty shocked (her rich boyfriend took her). Is there any way to travel there affordably?

Mustique is out of the question for most Americans, a place for billionaires wanting to be with others of their ilk, an island that really shouldn't be included in a list of Cairbbean options.  Go to Bequia--my own personal favorite--where a great many accommodations are available at affordable prices, in a setting almost as lovely as that of Mustique.  Mustique, where the late Princess Margaret maintained her home, is an unusual private island owned by one upscale company, its villas and their grounds rented out to hedge fund managers and other unsavory types.  Arthur Frommer
