FH and I would really like to go somewhere exotic with tons of fun things to do for our honeymoon without breaking the bank — sounds realistic, doesn’t it?
Problem is that I have been on many tripes and cruises without him in the past, and he wants to go somewhere NEW for the both of us.
I’ve been to Jamaica, Bahamas, Cozumel, St. Martin, St. Thomas, Costa Maya and Azores Islands.
Could you bee’s PLEASE do me the favor of suggesting honeymoon locations?!
We’d like to go sip lining, para-sailing, horse back riding, ATV’ing, snorkeling wherever we go.
We were thinking about Hawaii, but I don’t know what resorts to look at or even start with. Feel free to leave me with any advice you have! Thankss!!

Fun fun! Well if you want to go snorkeling at the locaiton, you are limited to water/beach locations, right or no?
Also, what is your “breaking bank” limit?

Have you thought about Panama? There are a lot of things to do there, and it’s a really great place to visit in general! You could spend some time in Panama City, some time in the jungle, some time on one of the coasts… it’s definitely easy to travel around the country!

you should totally check out costa rica – we really wanted to honeymoon here but ended up in Jamaica.
This site has tons of really neat packages (packages are listed down the right hand side and when you click it it gives you descriptions of all that you can do)

Sounds like the Cayman Islands to me…
Wikipedia – Cayman Islands = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cayman_Islands
Cayman Islands Touism = http://www.caymanislands.ky/
If you love water sports you won’t be disappointed… snorkelling is amazing, and they say they have the BEST Scuba in the world (you could look into getting licensed here before you go… or doing an Extensive Intro while you are there)
Hope this helps,

Australia and New Zealand!!! That’s where we’re going for our honeymoon. Queenstown, NZ is supposed to the the adventure capital of the world, so you can do tons of those activities there. Also, in Australia you could go snorkeling/scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef. Just a suggestion!
Also, what time of year are you going? That will definitely impact the weather at prospective honeymoon locations…

Go to Maui and stay at the Sheraton Black Rock in Kaanapalli. It is absoilutely amazing! Huge spread out resort, walking distance to shopping, amazing beach, snorkeling right in front of the hotel is amazing, I swam with 5 sea turtles in waist deep warm water. Cant say enough wonderful things.

A second the Maui suggestion. Not sure what “breaking the bank” means to you, but the Westin in Maui is great as is the Sheraton as suggested by a PP.

Maybe sounds crazy but our last vacation was at a lake in West Virginia. They had zip lining, snorkeling, horseback riding, white water rafting, hiking, canoeing, kayaking. Never would have expected all that in the continental US, but you may be able to find something other then an island that has the activities you enjoy.

It’s a lot like St. Thomas, the south side is the Caribbean Ocean, you can do tons of different things and even see a Beautiful Rainforest El Yunqe.
The main language is Spanish, but a Suprizing amount of people Speak Perficut English.
If you need any info on Puerto Rico let me know

Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic..The Hard Rock Hotel offered everything you are looking for plus more…We stayed there and had the most wonderful time!

We are going to Punta Cana in the DR for our honeymoon, and it is very affordable! We are just aiming to relax and lay around, so we are not planning on doing many (or any!) excursions, but I remember seeing all of your desired ones as options. From my [extensive] research, it is definitely the Carribean island where you get the most bang for your buck 🙂
