I want to stay somewhere in the keys, and I want that place to be somewhat secluded, with beautiful, turquoise waters, and white sand beaches. The photos I've seen on TA of Key West look very busy and touristy. The photos I've seen of Key Largo seem to make the ocean look gray, and it looks like a lot of the hotels and condos are on some kind of water that isn't ocean. It looks like a river or something.
We want to take day trips to Miami and different places in the keys, but we'd like to stay somewhere with a slow pace, and our focus and top priority is beautiful beach right out the door of the condo/house/hotel.
So, which town do you recommend, and in that town do you suggest a condo or hotel for under $200 a night?
