Which island has similarities to Hawaii?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I were planning on heading to Hawaii for the fourth time this fall, but are now contemplating a change fo scenery. What we love about Hawaii: The beaches and snorkeling, but also the other activities (hiking, going to the top of a mountain, finding hidden waterfalls, national parks and scenery, good restaurants, etc.). What we don't like: the travel time to get there from NYC! We actually will likely be heading on vacation from Chicago (my wife will be running the Marathon there), with a return to NYC. We are both 40 and very active. Honestly, I need more than a pretty beach and some snorkeling. I get bored by that pretty quickly.

We have been looking into Barbados and Aruba as options. Do either of those islands fit the bill for what we are looking for? Any others I should explore and research?

Thanks for the help!
