I don’t think you have to be to worried!

These tropical places have AC inside and when your outside you are very close to water for him to go for a quick dip to cool off!

I think if he is down for the tropical place – he knows it will be hot! And I think it is different lounging in the heat on holiday vs. working and running errands in the humid heat in the summer in ND!

But if you are really worried – talk to him! Ask him if the heat will be a problem!

Enjoy your honeymoon!

I had to talk Darling Husband into a vacation in the caribbean. He has NEVER been on vacation before and doesn’t see “the point” in them b/c he never had vacations growing up. The idea of being in a hot, tropical climate and being “bored” all day didn’t appeal to him.

I made him go anyways, promised lots of sex (lol. i had to keep reminding him it was our HM!) and he had a good time.We relaxed, read, etc. I think I asked him, “see isn’t this great? i TOLD you it’d be awesome!” like 8 times a day the first half of the week.

It’s hot in the caribbean, but three is the POOL! Lots of shade! We sat in the pool a lot in the shade sipping frozen beverages. Does he like the nonalcoholic kind? My mom doesn’t drink at ALL and enjoys lots of frozen virgin concoctions.

What time of year are you looking at going? July-Aug are definitely THE hottest. You could just pick a slightly milder time of year.

Boyfriend or Best Friend is not a heat-seeking person, except for when he is cold and I am warm. 

He’s definitely of the “bah, it is hot out, I’m staying in” sort, while I take to going outside when it is toasty.  

He wants to go to Aruba if/when there is wedding, so we’ll see how that goes.  We took a trip to SC last summer, and I got annoyed because everyone (BF, FS/MIL) was complaining about how hot and humid it was, and they wanted to stay inside.  I thought it was pretty darn nice out, and wanted to go exploring.  Then again, I think they were grumpy that I wasn’t all that excited about the beach.

Well, July is hot, no lie. But you eat inside, you can go take breaks inside (we did) and you sit in the loungechairs with the umbrellas and drag them intot he shade.

Honestly, It wasn’t “hot” in the shade. It was pleasant and VERY breezy. 85, 90` is very different with an ocean breeze coming off it.

Few things. First of all, I HATE the heat. I hate sweating, I hate being outside in summer (blasphemy, I know), I’m just a brat about it. But– I love beach vacations! For some reason, sweating in a bathing suit is just better. Plus, if you can find shade and a cold drink it really doesn’t bother me at all. I laid out for hours by the pool in vegas when it was 108 (under shade of course), and in Mexico. Just make sure you find somewhere that has free shade (i.e. not a place that makes you pay for palapas). 

Also.. I was a little worried about my FI’s and my vacation to an all inclusive in mexico this past October (Dreams Puerto Vallarta). It wasn’t a honeymoon but it was very honeymoon-esc. I was worried that he’d hate having to wear sunscreen all the time, that he’d be bored at the beach, and bc he doesn’t drink at all. He didn’t hate it at all! He was a *little* bored with all of the relaxing because he said being non-productive for a week is stressful to him (weirdo), but the heat and drinking didn’t bug him at all. I made an effort to not drink too much so he wouldn’t be lonely sober… and we had a great time in the sun.

Yeah – my Fiance sounds a lot like yours.  But – we’ve now been to Hawaii twice (yay for Bar trips!) and both times worked out pretty well.  Our big compromise that we had to make was if we were going to be at the beach or poolside we had to find shade for him and sun for me.  It actually ended up working out pretty well.  And our rooms definitely had AC (FI really can’t sleep when it’s too hot, so we may or may not have had the AC blasting several nights 🙂 ).  Now we’re hoping to make it to the Caribbean for our honeymoon, but we haven’t decided yet.
