Honeymoon during december holidays

Hi everyone,

My fiance and I are looking for a honeymoon destination during the week of Christmas.

We'd like to go someplace that has a luxurious resort, many great local foods to try, and most importantly, has activities to offer (such as guided tours and outdoor activities).

Although we do enjoy the beach, we don't want to go to a destination that doesn't offer activities other than simply lounging at the beach. For example, we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Maui 2 years ago, which allowed us the beautiful and accessible beach but also snorkeling trips, biking down the volcano, touring the island of Lanai, and eating various seafood. In our Cancun trip, our favorite experience was going ziplining rather than the beach.

We're flying out of Newark, NJ and our budget is a max of $7k. Through browsing on various sites, I've noticed that some locales might be a bit sleepy during the holidays and we hope to find a place that won't be entirely closed during Christmastime (if that's possible).

Thank you in advance for the advice!

Hi there!

You can try Bali, which is definitely "awake"during the Christmas time. If you look on the Internet you can find a lot of luxury places and I can recommand you Legong Keraton or Mutiara in semyniak. In Bali you can not get bored:-) you can do snorkeling, diving, surfing, one day trips to temples, in the mountains...jungle safari:-)

Have fun!!!!

7 K is not much these days. This is especally true during the high holiday season. Consider a Cruise out of NYC or NJ. It will save you on the airfare. Choose ports of call that interest you and the various activites that you enjoy. If you get a high-end cabin it will be very 5 star experience. Happy travels!
