Honeymoon help----Help us pick the Caribbean Island!

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I had a good discussion this past weekend about our honeymoon---I told him to describe the perfect honeymoon w/unlimited means...to him that is: the Bora Bora overwater hotel room featured in the movie ‘Couples Retreat’. He knows this is completely unrealistic but it gave me an idea that we both want something more over the top than a normal all-inclusive sort of vacation....

This is what I know: On May 31, we'd like to fly out of San Juan (we're not from there but will be there for another reason a few days before) and head to another island and stay for 5 nights.

We have our budget set around $4,000 which would include air from SJU to other island and 5 nights accommodations (tax, fees, etc.).

Our ideal honeyoon activities aside from the obvious would be someplace that has good snorkeling (we're not experts, we have done it a few times and loved it), good beaches for swimming, an island with some character to it to explore. I could care less about shopping.

The accomodations: we don't want a huge resort (no taller than 3 or 4 floors, not hundreds of rooms, maybe a private villa at a resort?). Something more intimate but not completely secluded - we'd like to still be able to get a few cocktails at night and not feel totally alone. We want an ocean view (not where you have to stick your head out of the window to look sideways at it either and not necessarily on the ocean but definitely able to see it in front of us). We want something over the top and really nice.

The islands/areas we can rule out are for various reasons are: Mexico, Jamaica, Punta Cana, and Antigua.

So, now that some of the Caribbean is open to us, what do you think? What island might fit us?

Thank you in advance for your knowledge and assistance!
