Leaving on a jet plane...

I am in desperate need of a vacation, y'all.  Once this trial is over, I want nothing more than to perch myself on a lounge chair on some gorgeous beach and just sit for a week (or seven).

We've been to the Cancun/Riviera area twice, so that's out.  And we've ruled out places like Fiji and Tahiti in favor of, you know, having money to pay bills and stuff.  :)  So here are the places we're considering:

{Turks and Caicos}



{Costa Rica}



{Cabo San Lucas, Mexico}



{The Bahamas}



{Kauai}



{St. Lucia}



{St. Thomas}


It's highly unlikely I'm going to do anything else today except daydream about sand and saltwater. :)  If you have any thoughts about these places (or if you have any write-in votes), please share!  I'm being uncharacteristically indecisive, and I need all the help I can get...

One of my new friends is from Trinidad and Tobago. Her description of it sounds so amazing. I want to go there! :) Even if you just dream about it, hope you get a chance to relax soon!

All these places look so beautiful! We went to Puerta Vallarta, Mexico last summer and it was amazing.

Love the Bahamas. I think it's the prettiest beach I've ever seen in my life!!

All those places look wonderful, but I have to second the suggestion of Puerta Vallarta! I stayed at the Dreams resort there (all inclusive) in 2008 and it was the best trip of my life! It's a completely different feel from the Mexican Riviera - you get mountains and beach!

We just went to Kauai this summer on our honeymoon. It is the most beautiful, relaxed, amazing place I have ever dreamed of going. Also, it was just voted the #7 island in THE WORLD by travel + leisure. Go there! But, be warned: the flight is LONG. 6.5 hours from LAX. I would say have 7 bloody marys and time will fly, but I think that's out :)

my two top destinations out of these listed are cabo or turks and caicos. i been to both of these places more than once and i loved it. st.marteen is also pretty great!

Now I want to daydream about warm, sunny beaches too! :) I have to say, that I LOVE the Bahamas. Growing up in FL, we would hop on a Bahamma cruise often! BUT, we honeymooned on Kauai and it is BEAUTIFUL. You really cannot go wrong there! With Hawaii there are lots of opportunities for adventure, so if you want to relax and just be on the beach...just don't think about all the hiking or hidden waterfalls you could find!! :) Can't wait to hear where you decide to go!

We got married at the Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica!! LOVED every minute there! However, our next trip is St Lucia! So if I have to pick from the ones you've listed... I'll go with St Lucia!! One condition.... TAKE ME WITH YOU!!! =)

Allie said...

I just want to go with you... All those places sound amazing!!!! I get excited about Vegas, but I'll hit the beach. ;)

I would have to say Kauai...I've never been there, but I've been to Maui and it's absolutely gorgeous and there are soo many things to do! Plus, the thing that I really liked about it is that you can leave your resort and not have to worry about security.

Kristin said...

We're going to Belize, Cozumel, Roatan...like the whole Bahamas tour.
I totally recommend St. Maarten! Of course, I'm just really looking to get to Hawaii soon too.

Aileen said...

All of them look great! We went to the Grand Cayman on our honeymoon and LOVED it, and last winter we went to Curacao. I highly recommend both. I also heard rave reviews about Turks and Caicos. It is on our list of places to go.

Also congratulations on your little one!! So excited for you and I can't wait to read about your pregnancy. I'm also excited to see how you decorate your nursery because I LOVE your style (it's so similar to mine). I'm in love with everything Pottery Barn too :)

I have never been, but my former boss spent some time in Costa Rica and could never ever ever stop talking about it. For like two years. If you want to have an annoyingly good time, Dave would suggest Costa Rica.
