The Frangipani Hotel
Anguilla is a small British overseas territory located right off of Saint Martin in the Caribbean. It’s laid back and charming and everything two burned out people looking to escape should go. Why Anguilla? For us, the decision stemmed from multiple factors. For one, we hadn’t been on a proper vacation in years and had just been through a rough season with a new baby who didn’t like to sleep. Ever. We wanted to pick someplace to park it on the beach for a week and not feel bad about it. However, wherever we picked had to be close to home with a total travel time of 7-8 hours or less from Colorado because we didn’t want to spend more vacation time on a plane. But it needed to be someplace different than where everybody and their mother have been. The only places I’d ever been before this trip were Kauai, Hawaii and Cancun, Mexico so it was important to me that I go a bit off the beaten path. Anguilla? Check, check and check.
