Maui or Caribbean honeymoon??

I’m just browsing some options for the honeymoon (never too early right?). I’ll be honeymooning May 2020 and I’m having a hard time deciding where I want to go. I have ALWAYS wanted to go to Hawaii and I’d love to go to Maui, but honestly I’d just like somewhere tropical. I feel like money-wise, somewhere in the Caribbean at an all inclusive resort might be the cheaper way to go compared to Maui. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Maui is definitely going to be more expensive so just keep that in mind.

    Maui is for sure more expensive but so worth it if you can afford it. Hawaii is incredible. When I went there, my main thought was "wow, this place is somehow underrated."

    It depends what you want to do, though. If you want to eat and drink a lot, lay on the beach, maybe snorkel or do some other water activities, the Caribbean is probably a better choice. If you want some adventure, hiking, etc., mixed in with beach time, then go to Hawaii.

    I'd go with Maui. Hawaii is super tropical, so you won't lose that feeling. I'd consider Oahu though, I personally like it a lot more.

    Welcome to WeddingWire, Courtney!! It's great to meet you!!

    I've personally been to both Maui and the Caribbean - so I know this is a tough choice!! Even though both are stunning, if your budget allows, I highly recommend Maui! I know it's a bit more expensive, but (in my personal opinon) it was well worth it! I've also heard that some of the other Hawaii islands are a little less expensive and are also beautiful! That could be another possibility you two could look into as well!

    The Caribbean is also gorgeous though! I've been to St. Thomas, the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, and Puerto Rico! They're all so gorgeous!

    WeddingWire has some awesome honeymoon guides you two should definitely check out! Hopefully they can help you make a decision!

    Maui will be really expensive, there are also fantastic resorts in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.

    Hopefully I can find a way to fit Hawaii into our budget because it seems like a place I would much rather go!

    The Caribbean was FH and I’s Favorite place to vacation before we visited Maui...it’s just unreal! Don’t get me wrong, we still love the Caribbean but Maui gets my first pick! I think we are going back for our honeymoon.
