We’re going to St Lucia for a week for our honeymoon, and we’ve rented out a private villa with a swimming pool. We recently contacted the concierge and he sent us a packet of all the activities they offer that you can do on the island. Theres soo many things we want to do, but we’re not sure if we’d be getting the most out of villa if we do so many activities (a lot of them last up to 6 hours).
So my question is, did you do a lot of activities (snorkeling, horseback riding, etc) on your honeymoon or did you relax? How did you plan your time?

@hopefloats: We stayed at a gorgeous, small, quiet Caribbean resort with incredible beach views, top-notch service, and awesome food. We spent our time sleeping in, enjoying fine dining, relaxing at the beach, playing in the water, and exploring the physical intimacy of finally being married. 🙂 We had an amazing suite! We also walked around the grounds of our resort, went on a snorkling trip, and, one day, enjoyed the high tea that the resort offered every afternoon.

I’m SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO jealous! DH and I want to go to St. Lucia next year. Please do a recap!
We mostly relaxed on our HM, but if there’s stuff you want to do, I’d go do it! (please tell me you’re doing the drive-through volcano!)

Ive heard two different honeymoon experiences that have left FI and I wanting to find a middle ground.
One couple stayed in their villa the whole week enjoying the privacy and the pool only leaving to eat out at restaurants and walks on the beach. Another couple barely stayed in and scheduled a whole week worth of activities. Fishing, snorkeling and parasailing. They both loved their honeymoons equally! So it definitely depends on the kind of couple you two are and I think when you get to the villa you will know exactly what you want to do. A lot of people told us not to schdule any activities until we get there also.
We are also going to St. Lucia and are only planning a few activities (volcanos, horseback riding and parasailing) and the rest relaxing and enjoying the weather and environment.

@hisgoosiegirl: I will for sure do a recap and I will keep you in mind, lol!
I personally wouldn’t mind just relaxing by the pool, but I know FI loves exploring and would enjoy all the activities, too, so we’re going to do a few. I think we’ve narrowed it down to 4.. 3 of them are only up to 2 hours, one is the whole day trip but I do want to see that one (its the drive through volcano, waterfall, tour of the island) so I think it will work out well for us. We might tack on a few extra days to the honeymoon if his work lets him!
