Honeymoon from dec 22 for 10+ days, expecting to have around 500k Marriott points. Can’t decide where to go. Can’t beach for more than 3-4 days, then want to adventure and explore. Recommendations?

Those points for far in southeast Asia. You can start in Vietnam - you'll get plenty of beach then you transition into exploration and hiking. You can also pretty quickly get to Cambodia to do temple hopping.

Alternatively, you can also go to Colombia/Argentjna/Brazil. Some combo of that will have great beaches and also very fun city things to see.

Thanks! I’ve done a little bit of South America but my fiancé has not. Not necessarily looking for Asia due to flight time.

Costa Rica has a great mix of beach and adventure.

That was super high on our list

We did our honeymoon at that exact time in Costa Rica but thought it was overrated. It’s so touristed, especially around Xmas, and doesn’t feel like it’s easy to find culture or history. Pricey too. Awful good. On the upside, great English and Western service standards, and beautiful jungles. If we could do it again, we’d go to Nicaragua - heard it has everything Costa Rica does but still off the beaten path enough to not be totally whitewashed by tourist dollars.

Hey all! Need a couple book recs for an upcoming beach trip.

Looking for a great non-fiction, relating to travel or world history (not just one moment in time). Could also be about the marketing world or memoirs of a business leader kinda thing.

Fiction wise I also like fantasy, paranormal, and romance. Some fave book series are the Black Gryphon from Mercedes Lackey, Game of Thrones, and From Jamaica Lane series. Similar books?
