How about Grand Cayman, Cozumel?Beautiful weather in November, warm water and warm breezes.....
Water temps in Bahamas and Caribbean are very warm in November - it's just past Summer, and is only starting to cool down.Caribbean YES.... will be warm, but the Bahamas weather will be similar to that of south florida... and water temps DO COOL DOWN SIGINIFICANTLYat that time of the year compared to July or August.
Water temp can vary by currents/storms but for most people who don't need the water to be 85 degrees and up , swimming is almost always reasonably possible.LOL....I am one of those 85 degrees and up people, but I plan to TRY and snorkel in the frigid 80 degree water when we go to Cozumel in mid November.
How about eastern caribbean at the end of December. can you even swim at the ports/ st. thomas, etc.As a former resident of St Thomas, I can assure you that the water in November is beautiful and warm. I can sort of remember a Thanksgiving where the turkey almost burned because we were enjoying the water so much. It was either the lovely warm water or the Pina Coladas made with Bacardi 151
