Trying to decide between Hawaii or Mexico for family trip

Jump to last reply

Well I've been researching lots of possibilities for a family vacation for this coming November & decided to add your opinions to my final decision just in case I am overlooking something.

There will be 11 of us-6 adults, 5 kids ages 17, 17, 15, 9 & 7 (all very athletic). Wanted to get a trip in before the two oldest graduate from high school. I plan to rent a large VRBO home. These are the important things to us:
cost of airfare (Southwest is starting service to Cancun in Oct which is swaying me)
good weather (aware that Mexico is in hurricane season)
blue ocean for snorkeling, paddleboarding, fishing, etc
ruins or good historical adventures
plenty of activities
guys want to go fishing
nice beaches

I've been to both Hawaii & Mexico. I'm leaning towards the Yucatan area in Mexico & maybe the Big Island in Hawaii. Our dates will be Nov 8-15.

Would love you to share your ideas & thoughts! We will fly out of Boise, ID. This week is about the only one that our grandkids aren't in sports. Appreciate any help you might give.
