I see flights for $270 r.t. in the summer from NYC. Is that a decent price? (Direct). Should I go for it or head somewhere else? Is it going to be packed in August? And is there Kosher food? TIA for any help.

Is there kosher food there?
Is a weekend enough time to see/do everything there?
Always use an Amex, you'll thank me one day.

Bermuda is close by but no other reason to go there above the Carribean etc.

Beaches are average and hotels are subpar and expensive

Does anyone  disagree with this?

Have a friend that is trying to convince that I'll enjoy Bermuda more than the Caribbean islands.

How would Bermuda compare to the Caribbean in your humble opinion?

It depends on the time of year. I went to Bermuda July and thought it was really nice, conveniently close by, and had a lot of mileage availability. However, during that time you are risking hurricane season. Additionally, as you get into winter Bermuda isn't as warm as the Caribbean- so the Caribbean is definitely preferable during that time of year.
It was definitely a really nice island with nice hotels, but since the weather doesn't work into your favor most of the time, the Caribbean might be easier.
To note: The hotels are on the expensive side. There are 2 Fairmonts and mostly independent hotels,

Have you been anywhere else in Caribbean?

Yes, PR a bunch of times and Barbados (still trying to make my way to more). Bermuda is more of a matter of weather than comparison.

So you're saying if the weather is good,  it's thumbs up?

Yes, but it's pretty much in the 60s for the whole winter.
