Late October Honeymoon in the Caribbean

Jump to last reply

I know there's countless posts asking the same question but my head is spinning sorting through them all! My fiancé and I (mid-20's) are in the very beginning stages of planning our honeymoon (leaving Oct. 25, 2015). I've been to several islands briefly on cruises over the years and know that they're all unique and charming in their own special way, and there is no 'perfect' destination. However, some of the things we're looking for are a more mountainous and lush setting, with soft and not rocky/shell-y beaches. My fiancé enjoys snorkeling, I like floating on a raft while he snorkels. We're a quiet couple, and value privacy and relaxation over tons of nightlife, but a few amenities (maybe a little shopping for a half day, an excursion, or checking out a bar one night) might be nice over the long trip. Don't really care about having an all-inclusive, I could take it or leave it. As for dining, we're both pretty picky so extensive regional cuisine isn't a necessity either. Budget is not nailed down at all at this point, but if I had to throw a number out there I'd probably say around $5-6,000 not including airfare, for a week-ish long trip. I've been to St. Lucia, St. Thomas, St. Kitts, Barbados, St. Maarten, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas. I loved most all of them in a different way but favorite was St. Lucia; St. Thomas was wonderful as well - definitely prefer these types of islands compared to the flatter terrain and drier atmosphere of Mexico (Cozumel, etc.) - but ultimately would like to try and find somewhere we haven't been before, for us to "discover" together.
For lodging, we'd LOVE a private bungalow type deal with our own little pool.
Sorry for the long post, but if anyone could help me narrow down our search a bit, taking into consideration the time of year, I would greatly appreciate it!
