Belated honeymoon/getaway - St. Lucia vs. Nevis

Jump to last reply

Hi there - new to this forum.
My husband and I just got married last month and due to our schedules (he's a teacher/coach and I'm in grad school) we're not able to take a 'honeymoon' until mid-December 2010. After doing some light research on here and Trip Advisor, I keep being drawn back to both St. Lucia and Nevis, but wanted some help from those who've been as to which one might fit best with our personalities. First off, our number one goal is to relax. We're both avid readers and I can't imagine anything better than lounging beach/poolside with a pile of pleasure reading that I'm not able to enjoy during the school year while sipping a nice cold one. However, my husband's capacity for relaxation far exceeds mine and it would be nice to be within easy access to areas to explore - both natural and cultural. We're not adrenaline junkies by any means but hiking, snorkeling/scuba, fishing, etc are right up our alley. We wouldn't mind staying somewhere with the option to have some, but not all meals included worry-free, but we'll both try anything once and would love to check out some local spots. Shopping and night-life rank last in importance while avoiding cruise-liner congestion and enjoying each other's company is key. I'd say we're in the $$ to $$$ price range but would like to keep the per night rate close to $200-400 depending on what's included.

Whew.... sorry for the novel. Any/all advice is appreciate. Thanks!
