The Champs Dominica
The Champs Hotel overlooks Prince Rupert Bay on Dominica's northwest coast.

Is the Caribbean a little been-there-done-that for you? If you’ve sworn off packed pools, long buffet lines and tourist-trap beaches, consider visiting one of these off-the-beaten-trail destinations. Dominica, Costa Rica and Grenada delight visitors with lush, rainforest environments. Vieques, the British Virgin Islands and St. Vincent may require an extra flight or ferry, but the reward – pristine privacy – is worth it!

Here are some resorts to consider if you’re looking for something new:
