All islands look alike! Help me Fodor's, you're my only hope...

Jump to last reply

I'm so glad to have found Fodor's!
We're having a hard time choosing a honeymoon destination. All the islands look similar. I've been reading reviews & now I'm more confused than before!

First off, we have a few things on our MUST DO list & they are....
Snorkeling, beach side room, & adventure away from the resort/hotel. Maybe a hike, para-sailing would be amazing, bike rides, even some kind of environmental awareness or animal tour.

All inclusive ranks pretty high on a must but only cause I'm not sure the cost of everything & what would be cheaper. This is our first trip to any tropical island & the thought of not having to worry about the cost of drinks, dinner & a few other things would be relaxing!

On the NO WAY list is.... not a huge, busy resort with crowed beaches (like sandals)

Hawaii is also a high contender. Looks awesome & its in the USA. Which means we wont have to get our passports.
We've also found deals for every island possible in the Caribbean & that's my problem! We've narrowed it down to few islands but now they're all looking the same.

Our wedding is May 19 so the honeymoon will be May 20th-27th & honeymoon budget is no more than $5000 total.

I've also been looking on the site 'Unforgettable Honeymoons' & they look somewhat legit. I'm just not so sure in booking with travel agents. Are there any better deals?

I have so many questions & there are too many websites! Plz help me Fodor's.... you're my only hope. (hahaha, I had to throw a little humor in there with the Star Wars reference) =)
