Which Caribbean Island is best for honeymoons?

by Traveling James »

I've heard that the Virgin Islands are gorgeous, but I'm worried about costs. Any insight? I don't want to be a cheapskate, but the wedding's costing more than we thought it would.

I just spent about two weeks on the Mayan Riviera and really enjoyed it. There are some amazing historic sights, really hopping nightlife (in Cancun) and if you go off the beaten path (away from Cancun!), you can find some not-too-crowded beaches. It helps to go in low season. 

I'm also a big fan of Puerto Rico. Again, great nightlife, some undiscovered areas (spend only part of your time in San Juan) and lots of things to see and do.

Have a great honeymoon!

My advice: Avoid Jamaica! Went there and explored a few cities and have never been so relieved to have a vacation end. We made the best of it, but I wouldn't recommend that particular island. I know that doesn't exactly answer your question, but hopefully it helps narrow it down.

I have heard AMAZING things about Dominica, if you're looking for less touristy, more outdoorsy/pristine beauty. A friend recently came back from 10 days there and loved it.

Honestly, while I know you want it to be memorable, many of the Caribbean Islands are beautiful and really if the two of you are together and having fun I think any of them would be great.

I'd agree with Caroline! Cheapest island vacation we ever had was in the Dominican Republic and it was just lovely! Congratulations and I hope this message gets to you in time. I've also been to Puerto Rico (Vieques) which we really liked.

Turks & Caicos, Anguilla, Antigua, British Virgin Islands are the best one to celebrate your honeymoon if your prefernce is Carribean island only. !!!

You have several choices: St. Thomas and St John is a combined trip as both islands are so close and both are US Virgin Islands.you really love it.

There are so many amazing choices out there. It kind of depends on what you want your honeymoon to entail though. Do you want to get out and explore, or just spend time on the resort with each other? For my honeymoon I was having the same problem, where to go, where to stay and the budget of course. We ended up in Grenada at Coyo Beach Resort, and was so happy with our choice! It was really a romantic setting, and the resort had lots of activities. I found it on the website http://www.myvacationpages.com. Made my life a lot easier because they don't have thousands and thousands of hotels, they (supposedly - dont know for a fact) research each hotel and only show ones that pass their review. It makes it much easier to search. I just clicked on hotels then blogger picks because those are the cheaper ones and went through them until I found one I liked. I'm mentioning this, because I didn't come across that resort on any other site. I would have missed out on the most incredible honeymoon ever otherwise!
