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!
