Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.
My wife and I are finally planning our honeymoon after marrying in late 2020 and we don't necessarily have a budget for the trip. I'd like to keep it below $10K if possible and we live in Virginia if that helps re: travel times to specific destinations. We have been peeking at St. Lucia but it seems quite expensive and not easy to navigate if you want to go off resort.
We are likely planning a 5-7 day trip and would prefer all inclusive, but I've seen quite a few people suggest against that.
For more context, we would very much like a large beach, the more secluded the better, but we also like to hike, and would like to do snorkeling, catamaran, etc. I'd like to keep the travel/flight times down as much as possible.
Thank you in advance!
