Trying to plan a vacation with the wife for this early July and I need to book very soon….
We have been to both Maui (6 years ago) and Kauai (last year) and loved it. Haven’t tried the Big Island yet as I’m not sure if it will be anything like what I experienced in both Maui and Kauai. Is it worth it or should go back to one of the two islands? Not really into Oahu in the Waikiki area as it’s too touristy for me.
Another option is Punta Cana (looking into NOW Lumiare resort) as the wife is leaning towards to going somewhere different than Hawaii. Anybody been out that area as well?
What’s even better is if someone has been to both destinations and can give me some good advice. We are into beaches, doing several excursions, good food and all that stuff. I must say that we did plenty of top excursions when went to both Maui and Kauai. If indeed going back to Hawaii, I would probably pick Maui since we were just at Kauai last year.
This will probably be our last big vacation before we start having kids, so I know I won’t be going back to Hawaii for a long time once we have a kid. We are from Missouri by the way.
