Tahiti vs. Hawaii
honeymoon hotspots tahiti hawaii

Filled with palm trees, waterfalls and picture-perfect beaches, Tahiti -- officially known as French Polynesia -- is the dream tropical destination for many honeymooners. Yet the airfare alone is enough to bust anyone's travel budget.

For less money -- and less travel time -- honeymooners can visit the Hawaiian islands where they will enjoy similar surroundings and activities, including surfing, snorkeling and even Polynesian entertainment.
