I thought I would join the others and ask for some honeymoon advice…my fiance and I have a hard time choosing where to eat dinner at, so choosing where to go on our honeymoon has been quite difficult to say the least!
We’re getting married in September but not honeymooning until December (time, money, etc.), so that makes things a little more complicated. We have a giant list of places we want to go but for most of them the weather is terrible in December! We’ve been to Hawaii several times and LOVE it, but we both kind of think we should go somewhere we’ve never been before.
We’re looking for somewhere we can relax, but that also has stuff to do. We aren’t sit on the beach all day types, but he loves to swim and I love marine animals. We also like to hike and do outdoorsy things.
The places that we’ve been looking at are Tahiti or Fiji; however, if we’re going to spend the money on somewhere like Bora Bora we want to be absolutely sure it’s going to be amazing! Somewhere all inclusive would be ideal, but not necessary.
Thanks for everyone’s help…I know a lot of these threads exist!

@Audrey2_sings: We went to French Polynesia and LOVED it. Bora Bora and Moorea were amazing. I’d actually switch and do a few extra days on Moorea vs Bora since we rented a car and the island was fun to hike/explore on our own. In Bora Bora, the resorts are on their own mini islands surrounding the main island so getting on and off required a boat ride from the resort.

If he enjoys swimming and water activities and you enjoy hiking and being outdoors, how about Costa Rica? I have some friends that s honeymooned there. The fell in love and have gone back every year since then! They are now considering a vacation home there. Good luck! I’m sure you’ll have a blast anywhere you go

@Audrey2_sings: Not sure what your budget is, but December is the ideal time of year to go to Australia and New Zealand! There’s tons of beach stuff there but also lots of hiking and other things to do (not to mention scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef, cuddling koalas, penguins on the New Zealand South Island, etc.)

You should stay at one of those all-inclusive huts LITERALLY on the ocean! How many people can say they’ve done that?

I realize its not as exotic as Fiji, but what about Couples Resorts in Jamaica?
