Hello!
My husband and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary this year and want to take a trip to either the caribbean or hawaii. Any suggestions on a great romantic week away where we can relax and enjoy time away from the kids? Also, when would be the best time of year to go? Thanks!

That is a huge, open ended question. There are so many places in the Caribbean to visit, and Hawaii's made up of many islands. It very much depends on what you want to do and see. Are you an active couple? Want to just do the beach thing? Want some nightlife? All of these things are going to come into play when you make your decision. You need to first decide on a budget, then what kind of vacation you want, and go from there.

Hawaii in a week is tough. It takes almost a day to get there and another day is spent flying back. Plus the time change of 5 or 6 hours really zaps your system coming and going. I'd wait until you can go for at least 10 days or 2 weeks. For 1 week in April or May I'd go to an all-inclusive in the Caribbean or Cabo. May be able to get direct flights and all activities, food, drink, nightlife and entertainment is provided. You might look into cruises as well.

Bermuda is great in the summer time, but it would be too cool for a beach vacation in the winter and early spring. In the Caribbean, be careful about booking during hurricane season in the fall.

Princeville, Kauai, Hawaii

There are many condos, and a beautiful ($$$$) hotel. Here are some links (none of them mine!):

Quintus Resort's Hanalei Bay Resort In Princeville On Kauai, Hawaii

Here's a link to a web cam mounted on the hotel. Check the view (remember the time in Hawaii is three hours earlier than the West Coast - no view when dark)
