Was thinking about:
- Blue Mountain Peak - Tallest mountain in Jamaica
Pico Duarte - Tallest mountain in DR, and the Caribbean
Something in Mexico - Looks like there are several mountains that are out of my league

Why do you say Pico Duarte is OK?
Would it take a day to drive and climb it?

Pico de orizaba and Izta are truly beautiful climbs.

Also, as the SP page says, I'd recommend taking a tent. The huts can have serious rat problems. Either way, don't forget sleeping bags, etc. unless you go with a really high end company. Only the high end companies will have sleeping bags for rent. Iguana Mama is probably the most high end company, but we used a cheaper fly by night operator and brought all our own food, stoves, etc.

Price depends on how much services you want. If you take all your own camping gear and food and use a local guide (most of which won't have an email address) it will work out to be cheaper. If you don't want to haul all your camping gear to the Caribbean, there are guiding services that will do that for you, though you still want your own sleeping bag.

I told my GF that it'll take 2 days to climb it for me, which i think is possible
I don't sleep much and can drive in the early morning and late nights, so travel shouldn't take too long.
