Another vote for Turks and Caicos. It was breathtakingly beautiful. We stayed on Providenciales and spent most of our time wandering beaches and checking out local eateries and festivals.

We also went parasailing and on a snorkeling expedition. I highly recommend both activities.

Also, the time it takes to fly there is very reasonable which was a big seller for us!

Gsxr06:  Idk if it was cause I had been wanting to go to punta Cana for so long and talked it up in my head, but we were really disappointed. It’s our least favorite place that we’ve been. 

We are getting married on Oahu since our family has never been and it’s easiest to get to. Oahu is still gorgeous once you get out of the tourist traps. And there’s a ton to do. The first time we went we were 18 and couldn’t really rent a car or anything so we stayed in Waikiki for the most part and did big touristy things like Pearl Harbor. Last year when we went, we hiked every day, did a helicopter tour and also went shark cage diving, it was amazing!! But we are honeymooning on Kauai and the big island. I can’t wait to have my mind blown by those islands since I feel like you never really hear people talk about Oahu and more so the other islands, so I’m excited to compare them!

I would recommend somewhere out of the carribean just because of the timing (hurricane season). I loved Hawaii! Maui and Oahu were my favorite islands!

Gsxr06:  I was supposed to go shark cage diving with great whites in South Africa last summer but the weather would never allow it so I begged Fiance to do it with me in Hawaii, it was such a cool experience!! The helicopter was amazing. We’re going to do another on our honeymoon over a volcano because Fiance won’t shut up about seeing a damn volcano haha. 

We’ve always rented from vrbo so I don’t really have any good resorts.
