Beach vacations are relaxing but you also want adventure!

Beach vacations and honeymoons are lovely and many couples dream of relaxing on a tropical beach in an exotic locale. But variety is the spice of life, and after a few days working on a sun kissed glow you may find yourself craving activities. So here are some tropical vacation and honeymoon ideas that offer relaxation, romance and active adventures you’ll talk about for years to come!

Picture yourself on the lush tropical island of St Lucia in a stunning open air sanctuary with private pool or a luxurious overwater bungalow with butler service. Both settings provide everything you need for a pampered, relaxed and romantic vacation and the beautiful island of St Lucia offers a wealth of exciting excursions and adventures. You can:

  • Hike the beautiful and rugged Pitons
  • Zip line through the dense green rainforest canopy
  • Island hop to Antigua, Barbados or Grenada
  • Take a mud bath near a dormant volcano
  • Sail to nearby Martinique
  • Snorkel, scuba or snuba on colorful coral reefs

Sound outstanding?  You can have it all:  luxurious accommodations, butler service, beach time and some really awesome escapades. Here’s another exotic beach adventure combo –

Few places on earth match the incomparable beauty of the South Pacific and Fiji offers a private island vacation within a reasonable budget. The main island of Viti Levu has mountains, rivers, a lush fertile interior and long stretches of coral rimmed coast so you can enjoy:

  • shark diving
  • white water rafting
  • horseback riding
  • zip lining
  • a jet ski safari
  • cave tours

But Fiji’s real gems are the tiny outer islands where your accommodation will be a beachfront bungalow steps from the sea, tree house amidst a lush tropical jungle or overwater bungalow suspended above a coral reef. Activities on the outer islands center on the beach and water but you can also

  • hike or swim at the Bouma waterfall
  • visit a pearl farm to see exotic colored pearls cultivated by hand
  • explore a local village and meet the chief
  • drop a fishing line in the water and bring home dinner
  • snorkel amid an amazing soft coral garden
  • kayak from one island to another

Then kick back and relax with a good book, climb into a hammock for a snooze, share a cup of kava with the locals and enjoy a vacation where time no longer matters.  You won’t be the first to shed a tear when it’s time to say goodbye.

Now, picture yourself in Belize, where you can mix your beach vacation with:

  • climbing ancient Mayan ruins
  • caving with hard hat and headlight in eerie darkness
  • river rafting beneath iguana-filled trees
  • hiking through jungles that ring with the hoots and hollers of howler monkeys

San Ignacio in Belize is a fantastic base for jungle activities with easy access to Tikal plus unique adventures like the challenging Actun Tunichil Muknal tour.  Then, after a few days in the interior, head for the beach! You can choose a lovely spot on Ambergris Caye or a more unique, adventurous setting.

Reached on a road that is more pot hole than dirt, Hamanasi offers beachfront and treehouse accommodations luxurious enough for an awesome honeymoon or vacation and you’ll have a choice of unique adventures like bird watching, hiking in a jaguar preserve, exploring mayan ruins and world class snorkeling and scuba diving. On a single dive I saw spotted eagle rays, free swimming green morays, hawksbill sea turtles, nurse shark, 300 pound grouper, lobsters large enough to feed the resort, thriving coral and hundreds of colorful exotic fish.

Relaxation in a warm climate, beautiful water, and luxurious pampering in a romantic atmosphere are some of the reasons the beach vacation is so popular but remember…  You will gather your favorite travel stories from trips that also include adventure, planned or unplanned.

My personal travels have taken me to hundreds of beaches all over the world plus adventures in Patagonia, Kenya, Machu Picchu and the Amazon, Australia, Greece, Italy and more. I hope you’ll call or email and allow me to help you find the perfect combination of experiences for your vacation or honeymoon. We can have a grand adventure planning it together!

What does a tropical island honeymoon cost?

Most couples get married in the summer and the majority of honeymoon couples choose a tropical beach honeymoon where the focus is on relaxation and romance. But weddings are expensive and budget may be a factor. So where can you go for a romantic honeymoon without breaking the bank and what does a dream honeymoon cost?

Here are some popular spots for exotic summertime honeymoons from $1K to $20K –

  • You have dreams of a lovely beach but a limited budget? Don’t stay home! Head to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic where $1000 buys 5 nights at a quality all-inclusive resort on a stunning white sand beach. Add airfare and voila! Instant, affordable, awesome honeymoon.  Hint: ask Uncle Al to get you there using credit card points or frequent flyer miles. He’s been sitting on them for years and loves you both to pieces.
  • At $1500 there are options in Jamaica and Puerto Vallarta for adult only all-inclusive honeymoons on the beach with 5 nights accommodations, meals, drinks, evening entertainment and lots of activities for two.
  • Want a longer honeymoon? Consider island hopping in Hawaii with a couple of nights on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu then a longer stay at a luxury resort on Maui’s famous Kaanapali Beach. 7 nights’ accommodations, transfers, car rental and daily breakfast should be about $2.5K traveling peak season.
  • For less than $3K, stay one week at a couples only Sandals Resort with everything included from gourmet dining to wine/beer/cocktails, land and water sports, entertainment, even snorkeling and scuba trips. You’ll find swim up bars, sexy firepits, hammocks and candlelit tables for two at every restaurant.
  • If butler service and a private pool or swim out room is on your wish list, St Lucia, Grenada or Barbados could be a great choice with options from $5.5K for a 7 night all inclusive honeymoon. These islands also offer unique open air “sanctuaries”, overwater bungalows and ultra-extravagant accommodations in the $12-20K range for one week.
  • Exotic islands in the South Pacific calling your name? From the west coast, a honeymoon package with airfare and 6 nights in a beachfront bungalow at an adult only resort in Fiji starts between $6-7K.
  • Glorious overwater bungalows overlooking Bora Bora’s shimmering lagoon with a view of Mt Otemanu and fabulous sunsets will set you back more. Figure $10K+ for airfare from the west coast and a 5 night stay.

So with tropical island honeymoons from $1K to $20K where do you start?

1. Begin with the dream and have fun visualizing the perfect honeymoon! Read blog posts and magazine articles, look at photos online, talk with everyone you know.

2. Make a note of every destination, feature or activity that made your heart race or put a starry eyed look on your face. This is your wish list.

3. Sit down together and talk about reality. How long can you be gone? How far are you willing to travel? What are you comfortable spending and what needs to be included in that budget?

4. Call or email a honeymoon travel specialist. When you share the fantasy, the reality and allow time for us to work our magic you may find your dream honeymoon really does come true!

Has anyone seen the overwater bungalows in Jamaica and Mexico?

We’ve seen the overwater bungalows in Jamaica and Mexico and with competitors like St Regis and Four Seasons Bora Bora would be hard pressed to choose THE most luxurious overwater accommodation but the new overwater villas at Sandals Royal Caribbean are definitely in the running. They are stunning and with 1800 square feet of luxurious appointments, private infinity pool, indoor and outdoor living areas, two glass viewing windows, fully stocked premium bar and butler at your beck and call it’s hard to imagine leaving once you’ve checked in. This level of pampering compares with 5 star resorts in Bora Bora but the setting, resort and island experience is very different so the Caribbean will appeal to some while Tahiti to others.

st-regis-2  src-overwater-villa-deck-pool  src-overwater-villa-bathroom

The overwater bungalows at adult only El Dorado Maroma in Playa del Carmen Mexico are also lovely but Patty, our Mexico specialist, feels some guests may be happier in another room category. The same can be said of Likuliku Resort in Fiji where I often recommend deluxe beachfront bures rather than overwater.

So what should you consider when choosing an overwater bungalow for your vacation or honeymoon? In addition to room features and amenities our list would include travel time, weather, planned interaction with the water, preference for all-inclusive or independent pricing, nightlife, activities, off resort tours, language, food and culture. Let’s begin with French Polynesia and its crown jewel, Bora Bora.

Much of what makes Bora Bora exceptional is the physical setting with Mt Otemanu surrounded by a ring of low lying islets called motus. These tiny islands form a barrier to waves and tides creating a calm inland lagoon with shimmering turquoise water.  The lagoon is bathtub warm, almost that clear and home to vibrant coral reefs that feed thousands of brightly colored tropical fish. So a big part of the overwater experience in Bora Bora and the Maldives cannot be replicated in Mexico or the Caribbean because the physical setting is different and if you’re a diver, snorkeler or want to watch tropical fish through a glass viewing window nicknamed “Tahitian TV”, that’s important and you may only be happy in Bora Bora or another South Pacific island. Bora Bora fans also rave about the quiet setting, fabulous French chefs and spectacular sunsets.

But if you value a short flight, prefer an adult only all-inclusive format and plan to cool off in your private pool not ocean you may be happier in an overwater villa at Sandals Royal Caribbean. Your all-inclusive villa comes with butler service, fully stocked bar with premium liquors and espresso machine, choice of 8 restaurants and bars plus dine around privileges at two other resorts. Jamaica is closer, English is the primary language and weddings are easily arranged and free at Sandals Resorts. Nightlife and sports bars are available and there are more activities and off property excursions in the Caribbean than Tahiti. Many dates for the overwater villas with private pool and overwater bungalows at Sandals are sold out but there are pockets with space available in 2017 so please ask if you’d like help with a luxury included honeymoon or vacation.

Think about what’s most important to you then call or email your wish list and questions. Patty and I will be happy to help you choose the best resort for your overwater vacation or honeymoon whether in Mexico, the Caribbean or South Pacific. We’ve seen them all, our service is free and we guarantee the lowest price on everything we sell.

Best Spots for a Fall Destination Wedding

Hyatt Ziva and Zilara Rose Hall Jamaica

Destinations weddings are understandably popular and fall weddings offer incredible value so where are the best spots for a fall destination wedding where the weather is ideal and photos will be as beautiful as the bride? There are many great choices in Hawaii, the Caribbean and South Pacific but here are a few of our favorite destinations for a fall wedding –

  • Maui
  • Jamaica
  • Barbados
  • Antigua
  • Fiji
  • Bora Bora

Maui was recently chosen as the #1 island in the world by Trip Advisor with a wealth of activities and accommodations to suit every budget. Hawaii is popular for destination weddings year round but when kids go back to school in the fall, prices drop. So Maui and the other Hawaiian Islands are a great value for a fall destination wedding. Busy brides will find Tracy Flanagan an excellent resource to help them find the perfect venue and Totem Travel can make travel arrangements easy whether it’s two of you on the beach or a group requiring contracts and blocked space.

Jamaica also made the top 10 list but some couples worry about the Caribbean for a fall wedding because of hurricane season. Important news flash! According to US Travel and News Reports, Jamaica is a great choice for fall and winter travel and July through November is the best time to visit Barbados. Other good choices for fall destination weddings would be Antigua and Aruba, both drier islands and south of the normal storm path.

Combined with great weather year round, the Caribbean has adult only and family friendly all inclusive resorts which offer free destination weddings and fall wedding groups at Sandals and Beaches Resorts earn every 5th room free and special extras such as a rehearsal dinner, reception with signature cocktails and customized wedding theme. These kinds of deals make a fall destination wedding in the Caribbean one of the best values around.

signature cocktails








Tahiti, Fiji and the the South Pacific islands’ best weather is May through October and storms rarely make an appearance before February. The Fijian Islands make it easy to be married with toes in the sand and couples often spend less than an hour on legalities. Adult only resorts like Matangi Private Island Resort offer an exotic intimate setting, romantic beachfront bungalows and you can charter the island for the ultimate private destination wedding group!  There are also family friendly resorts in Fiji perfect for a wedding on the beach or in a chapel.

Bora Bora in THE place for an overwater bungalow with it’s pristine lagoon and gorgeous sunsets but symbolic weddings are more popular in Tahiti than legal ceremonies because of the time and expense involved. However legal weddings are possible in Tahiti and some things are definitely worth the wait!


So how do you get started planning your fall destination wedding? Every couple and situation is different but making a few decisions up front and working with a destination specialist will make the process easier and more enjoyable. So think about whether you want family and friends to attend your wedding and if you’d like a simple ceremony or elaborate customized affair. Then call, request a quote or email Linda or Patty at Totem Travel and we’ll help with the rest. We know all the islands, resorts and wedding packages and look forward to making your special day picture perfect!

Private island adult only paradise – Matangi Resort in Fiji

I’ve said it before and will say it again, I am truly spoiled, but on a recent vacation in Fiji, Matangi Private Island Resort set a new high bar for barefoot luxury and pampered guest service. It may have been the ultra private treehouse with outdoor jacuzzi and rock shower, super comfy canopied bed, and stunning oceanview. Perhaps it was the soothing Fijian foot massage with coconut scrub and fragrant oils I received a few minutes after arrival. Or starting each day with a hand crafted latte with secret message in the foam, freshly baked muffins and amazing papaya and pineapple.

It could easily have been the ever attentive but always discreet Sireli, Matangi Island Resort concierge, who ensured I was able to snorkel, hike, kayak, scuba dive, learn about coconuts, enjoy Horseshoe Bay and Buoma Waterfalls, nap on a swinging bed inches from the sea, and get back to the oceanfront spa for a bone melting Fijian massage. All without detracting from the sense of timelessness, serenity and leisurely island life.

It is possible that the excellent New Zealand wines added to my pleasure and most certainly the treat of three beautifully prepared and presented multi course meals all included at no extra charge. The seafood is fresh from the sea, fruits and vegetables are grown on the island and even the ice cream is homemade. Mmmmmm…. all served in a supremely elegant but barefoot casual, open air setting with gleaming hard wood floors, balmy island breezes and flickering candlelight. Did I mention all day cookies and coffee? But I digress…

Matangi Private Island Resort is a very special place for many reasons but it is not for everyone. You are miles and miles and miles from home. There are no roads on the island and no cars of any kind. There is no town nor stores. There are no televisions in the bures. There is no late night entertainment beyond some Fijian music, cocktails or kava, conversation with another guest. All you have is PRIVATE TIME WITH YOUR SIGNIFICANT OTHER or travel companion and an awesome Fijian staff whose goal in life is to pamper you in every possible way. This is what makes Matangi Private Island Resort one of the best choices anywhere for a romantic honeymoon or special anniversary.   I’ve been to almost all the islands and resorts in the South Pacific and have traveled all over the world. Trust me, this place is exceptional and if you experience Matangi’s magic you’ll know what I mean!

What does a Tahiti vacation or honeymoon cost?

St Regis 1

It’s rare for a day to go by without being asked “what does a trip to Tahiti cost?” and while I would be a very popular travel agent offering a Tahiti vacation for $1500 or overwater bungalow in Bora Bora for $2000 it won’t be happening soon… or maybe ever… But there are lots of ads that make Tahiti appear affordable so let’s look at the individual components and get down to the bottom line of what a vacation in Tahiti really costs!

Getting to Tahiti – There is only one international airport serving the group of islands referred to as Tahiti or more properly the Society Islands of French Polynesia, and that is Papeete (PPT). To reach Papeete Tahiti from the United States all flights connect through Los Angeles (LAX) or Honolulu (HNL). However only LAX has daily service and offers the flexibility needed by most vacation and honeymoon travelers. Honolulu has only one flight a week each direction and the flight times do not easily connect with other U.S. cities without a stopover. And while a stopover in Hawaii is always an option, it is rarely an effective strategy to reduce the cost of a vacation in Tahiti.

There have been occasional exceptions over the years, but a normal fare between Los Angeles and Tahiti starts around $1200 per person and during the high season, May through October, $14-1800 per person is more common. To that you would add the cost to reach LAX.

Getting around Tahiti – Once you reach Papeete you’ve got a bit farther to go before you’ll find the Tahiti of your dreams with white sand beaches, turquoise water and fabulous snorkeling because Papeete is a busy international gateway and can be crowded, congested and noisy. So a typical Tahiti vacation budget must also include local and interisland transportation. These options range from a 35 minute ferry or 10 minute flight to Moorea, one hour flight to Bora Bora and other outer islands, or even a Paul Gauguin or Windstar cruise departing from Papeete. Regardless you will spend money getting to the other islands.

So let’s assume Moorea as the least expensive dream satisfying island destination in Tahiti and work out those costs. A roundtrip ferry ticket is about $35 per person plus the cost of a cabs from airport to ferry and ferry to resort. Assuming two people traveling by cab I’d plan about $100 roundtrip.

Le Truck and the local bus would be less, as little as $15, but you’ll need extra time, be careful of travel times and dates, and be willing to walk with luggage.

A flight to Moorea is around $100 per person roundtrip but you eliminate $50 in cab rides so not a big difference compared to the total cost of taking the ferry. So unless every dollar matters, I tell my clients to fly to Moorea if they arrive in PPT early morning and take the ferry if there is a forced overnight.

Getting to Bora Bora and the outer islands – An interisland flight from Papeete or Moorea to the magical island of Bora Bora is about $400 per person roundtrip in the off season and closer to $500 during high season. Flights to other islands such as Rangiroa, Tikehau and Huahine are about the same, but if you have the time and budget for more extensive island hopping a pass is the way to go and will reduce costs somewhat.

So an average honeymoon couple traveling in the summer months will spend more than $4K getting from Los Angeles to Bora Bora and back. More if they’d like to stay on two outer islands. Then we need a roof over their heads, hopefully in an overwater bungalow, and enough food to keep love alive . Thank goodness the sunsets are free!

Accommodations – Here we have more variables so I won’t be able to address every option, but assuming you prefer a bungalow over a hotel room and wish the amenities of a 4 or 5 star resort the following general statements should apply.

Most resorts in Tahiti offer an enticement such as free nights or free meals with longer stays so your best value is often 3+ nights on Moorea and 4+ nights on Bora Bora or another outer island. Resorts that have more than one location in French Polynesia may also offer combination rates. So if you stay at the Moorea Pearl and Bora Bora Pearl Resorts you may get a better deal. The challenge here is that the best resort on one island may not be the best on another, so value will be in the eye of the beholder.

Garden bungalows are less costly than beach bungalows and overwater bungalows without a view are less than those with a Mt Otemanu view. Pretty much everyone averages $600 or more per night even with the best deals if they include Bora Bora or another outer island.

Dining in Tahiti – The food is excellent but expensive in the Tahitian islands and it doesn’t seem to matter if you’re a light eater (I am), vegan or carnivore. Everything is flown in except the fish from the sea and those wonderful French chefs that work their magic with sauces and desserts don’t come cheap either. Most will spend $125 or more per person for two meals a day and my best advice to economize is to eat a hearty breakfast, skip lunch and enjoy an early dinner just after sunset.

It is possible to bring unopened sealed foods (e.g. granola bars) into the country to tide you over between meals or satisfy a snack attack but the idea of stopping at a market and picking up groceries isn’t a practical option for most. You can however pick up some local rum at a fraction of the price the resort’s charge for a cocktail. Which reminds me, there are no all inclusive resorts in Tahiti but meal plans are available at almost every resort.

So what’s it going to cost? There are lots of variables but here’s a quick bottom line to know if a Tahiti honeymoon or vacation is within your budget –

With air from Los Angeles traveling during high season, 3 nights on Moorea, 4 nights in an overwater bungalow on Bora Bora, breakfast and dinner daily and transfers the total will be $8-10K for two using the best available specials at 4 star resorts. If you want to spend less we can look at off season travel, shorten the stay, give up the overwater bungalow or give up Bora Bora.

Tahiti, Moorea and Bora Bora are expensive but the destination provides a once in a lifetime fantasy experience and is worth every penny. Please give me a call or shoot me an email with your vacation wish list. I’m here to help, have decades of experience finding the best value, guarantee the lowest price on all Tahiti and Fiji vacation packages and am happy to suggest other unique and special options if the cost of a Tahiti vacation is too high. Mauruuru!


Summer specials at one of Fiji island’s best adult only resorts – Qamea

Wow! This doesn’t happen very often… Qamea Resort and Spa in Fiji is offering two free nights during the high season summer months. So you can stay 7 nights and pay for 5  through October when the weather is at it’s absolute best and couples need a way to stretch their budget for a last minute adult only inclusive honeymoon in the romantic and idyllic Fiji Islands.

In addition to free nights you can choose either a free scuba package or free massage package daily and the resort is picking up the tab for one of the interisland flights between from Nadi to Taveuni. Qamea offers room only rates and a meal inclusive  package which is the better value and honeymooners will receive a bottle  of French champagne and 30 minute massage with a one week package.

Check out the current Qamea special and call or email me for  more South Pacific packages and suggestions. I visit Tahiti and Fiji regularly and am here to help!

A pick for best adult only resort in Fiji – Likuliku Lagoon Resort



Click for slide show


In celebration of an imminent reopening I wanted to review one of Fiji’s best resorts, the beautiful, luxurious and immensely popular Likuliku Lagoon Resort. So with all the wonderful resorts in Fiji what makes Likuliku Resort one of the best?

1. Exceptional accommodations with the Fiji Island’s only overwater bungalows. Plus my favorite deluxe beachfront bures with private pool and gorgeous ocean views. Amenities include a comfy king bed, luxurious bathroom with indoor and outdoor garden shower and Pure Fiji bath products, freshly baked cookies and mini fridge with beverages near the living area, generously sized beach bed on a wrap around furnished porch and more. All just steps from the sand and water’s edge… paradise!


2. Gourmet dining that will delight every foodie’s heart and stomach with breakfast, lunch and 5 course French inspired Polynesian influenced dinners included in the room rate. An extensive wine list adds to the experience and many guests linger for hours at their candlelit table with quiet music from handmade Fijian instruments playing softly in the background .


3. Ultra romantic adult only ambiance with private nooks and crannies near the beautiful 2 level horizon edge pool, flower strewn pathways, flickering Tiki torchesan


4. Sunsets and a very special place to enjoy them with toes in the sand and favorite beverage in hand at the sunset bar on the pier.


5. Watersports and activities with snorkeling, kayaks, sailboats and more free of charge. Guests can arrange a private sand spit picnic, island hop and visit Tom Hank’s Castaway, rent jet skis or go deep sea fishing. It’s all available and nearby.


All these features are important and add to an amazing vacation experience but what truly sets Fiji apart from Tahiti, Bora Bora, the Cook Islands, Caribbean and other tropical destinations are the Fijian people. And the staff at Likuliku  is incredible. From the first warm welcome to the flowers petals on your bed and traditional good bye song as you leave this island  paradise you will be treated like royalty. So plan some time to get away from it all and put Fiji on your honeymoon or anniversary wish list. It is a magical place you will never forget!
