Clearly there is no bad choice between cruising in the Bahamas
vs the windward/leeward islands. But if you had to make a choice and you were cruising with kids
(ages 9 and 12), where would you go if you had a year?
Some of the things we've been thinking about that will impact how much time we spend where:
- # of other boats with kids
- relatively short hops between destinations
- good mix of total wilderness locations and "civilization"
- learning experiences (other cultures/languages/food/etc)
We're leaning towards the Caribbean
because of the diversity of the islands, but have heard that there are many more kid boats in the Bahamas
, making the decision a bit tougher.
Any and all words of wisdom are welcome!
