Pick Your Paradise

The CaribbeanMexicoHawaii. These destinations have been extending their siren calls to newlyweds for decades. And for good reason: Just when you thought you knew them, they manage to reveal another wonderful secret, whether it's a hidden beach, a charming town, or an under-the-radar island. Find out how to enjoy each region, both on and off the beaten path.

Eleuthera, Bahamas
East of Providence Island (home to Nassau), this speck of sand is unspoiled and decidedly chill.

Expect verdant mountains aflutter with exotic birds, and beaches that could have jumped off your screensaver.

Riviera Maya, Mexico
Two words: Mexican Caribbean -- a.k.a. 70 miles of glorious white sand, reefs teeming with fish friends, and aqua water stretching down the eastern Yucatan Peninsula.

Todos Santos, Mexico
This sunbaked town draws surfers to its swells, painters to its honeyed desert light, and foodies to its farm-to-table fare. 

Oaxaca City, Mexico
In a high southern valley, this colonial city has cobblestone streets, art galleries, exceptional cuisine, and leafy plazas where marimba bands serenade cafe-lingerers into the night. 

Isla Holbox, Mexico
Shoes seem silly once you step from the ferry onto the sand streets of this carfree isle off the tip of the Yucatan.

Oahu, Hawaii
This island's authentic best lies beyond its iconic strip, on wild coastal roads, orchid-lined trails, and pocket beaches.

Lanai, Hawaii
This rural escape is Hawaii unplugged -- ideal for pairs who are happy with leisurely days and wide-open spaces. 

Big Island, Hawaii
This island deserves to be seen from more vantage points than just the one -- as sweet as it is -- you get from a beach chair.
