better honeymoon? mexico or hawaii?

My fiance and I are contemplating between going to the riviera maya part of mexico or to one of the hawaiin islands for our honeymoon from april 29 to may 7 ish of 2009. We are looking for a nice beach with good snorkeling. And neither of us speak spanish. Price is not an issue as it is a wedding gift to us, but I was wondering to those people who've been to both Mexico and Hawaii, which would they recommend for a honeymoon?? (we'd also prefer an adults only resort, but it's not necessary) Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

You are on the Mexico country forum. (You posted your Hawaii question in the Kauai forum, not the USA forum.) You'll get much better responses if you go to a specific destination forum. Try Rivera Maya, Tulum, or any other that appeals to you. There are definitely adult only resorts that will pamper honeymooners in that area.

Language is not a problem. The Riviera Maya is a tourist destination. If you can say "Gracias" and "No Gracias" you'll be set!

Best wishes on the upcoming nuptials & honeymoon.

Hi there you will get more for your buck in Mexico .Most of the resorts are all inclusive so you dont have to pay for your meals or drinks.In Hawaii you have to pay for all and food and drinks are very expensive.Check out the Iberostar Grand for your honeymoon its a beautiful resort and is #1 right now if you stay there you can use the other Iberostars in the area(they have 4 right next store,2 in Playa del carmen and one in Cozmel)Hope this helps have fun!
