Trying to find an island for honeymoon in May

Jump to last reply

Hi folks,

I'm getting married in late May next year, and we'd love to go somewhere in the Caribbean for our honeymoon immediately following the wedding. Problem is, like so many other people know, there's just too many options. Here's a couple things we know we want/don't want, and I'm hoping some of you can help me with the rest.

Roughly ~$10k budget for 7 nights

We want:
Nice beaches to relax on
A large room/suite with an ocean view
Availability of excursions for a couple days
No kids
All-inclusive is a maybe, but not a must

We don't want:
Lots of mosquitos
Traveling on rough, twisting island roads
A party-like atmosphere
Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, USVI

We've heard that St. Lucia is amazing, but I think it hits a couple of the don't want boxes. Any thoughts that you have on islands and resort options would be greatly appreciated!
