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.

Splurge: Tahiti

What you'll pay*: $6,000

Steal: Hawaii

What you'll pay: $3,600

*Note: Expedia calculated average trip costs using package deals offered from Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York City for the week of May 31 through June 7th. Package includes airfare, plus 7 nights at a 4-star resort, for two people.
