Honeymoon in August- St Lucia ruled out :( help us pick a destination!

Jump to last reply

We are getting married on August 9th, and we planned on taking a honeymoon the week after (leaving on the 16th). probably an 8 night trip or so.

We really wanted to see St Lucia because of the pitons and the drive in volcano, but we are using points to book the flight and our airline (US Airways) had nothing to and from this island within the month (with them or any affiliates). The Caribbean is the most accessible to us since we are from Michigan, we don't want to spend an entire day travelling each way for such a short trip. If we had more time we might consider Hawaii, still might be an option but aside from lengthy travel we are also off put by the time difference, as we will not have time to adjust before returning to work after returning.

So now I am going to try to sell my fiancé on another island or nearby destination. We are looking for low hurricane risk compared to other islands (will still purchase insurance of course), nice beaches, scuba, and maybe comparatively low humidity. We are hoping to avoid all inclusives and want to be able to explore the area and eat as we please (we took an AI vacation to Mexico when we got engaged, which was great, but we definitely want a few more options and a little more freedom this time. Don't want to worry about getting sick from food). We aren't as into historical buildings or sites etc. but physical elements to explore are much more our speed (waterfalls, caves, mountains that kind of thing), so an island or destination whose physical beauty isn't limited to only beaches would also be a plus.

Any ideas or suggestions? We are hoping to find something that suits us and that will be more accessible than st lucia.
