Need help choosing an island for our honeymoon!!

Jump to last reply

Hello everybody! I have started researching for our honeymoon planned for April of next year! My fiancé has NEVER left the country and I LOVE to travel! I have been to Mexico three times and visited Jamaica once. Each time I've traveled outside of the country I have done all inclusive. Personally, I think all inclusive is fine but I consider myself to be a bit more adventurous and I'm looking for something more exotic, laid back, and less crowded.

So far in my research, I've narrowed it down to a few places, but still am not quite sure which island seems best for us. Right now, on my list is Barbados, Curacao, and Aruba. I wouldn't mind any suggestions and would love to hear what people have to say that have visited these islands.

Our list of MUST HAVES:

Beautiful Beaches- I expect us to spend a lot of time on the beach. We both love the water, snorkling, and I hope to get in at least one dive while we are there. Plus I can't wait to show my fiancé the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean!

Exploring- I would like to experience an island that is SAFE to explore by a rented car. We love to hike and sight see. I would love to go to a place that has great history and some beautiful buildings to visit., along with maybe a plantation or other historical tours.

Culture & local food- I don't want to go somewhere that is extremely Americanized! I want to meet with friendly locals, eat local home-made food, and experience the island like the locals do!

We will be looking for a condo, villa, or apartment to rent and will be traveling in late April-early May. Any and all comments are welcome! Thanks everyone in advance for your comments!
