So our story begins.. We left for our honeymoon on Tuesday morning at 6am to Miami followed by a flight to Anitgua and I would highly recommend leaving a day or two later for your honeymoon! We totally allowed ourselves to unpack some things from the wedding and repack things we may not have considered, like snacks, and making sure all the cameras were charged. Also let's not forget the mass amount of CASH you can take with you... A few taxi's here and there made the cash super handy.
Our honeymoon resort was called Cocobay and it is an amazing resort. It is a very quite resort with not a lot of activity but definitely what we needed to unwind and unplug. No TV's in the rooms, no wi-fi, just amazing views at every turn, the most gorgeous beaches you've seen and awesome rum!!
I just kept wondering in a Jack Sparrow voice, why the rum was always gone?! (Because I drank it, duh!) Seriously, one day I had about three drinks by the pool and said to hubs, "I need to take a nap" and laid down and passed out.. whoopsie daisy!
We stayed at Cocobay for 8 nights and it was wonderful really. The view was superb. We arrived a bit after lunchtime and were greeted with cold towels and rum punch by the hotel manager in which we were informed of the little resort oddities, like the one restaurant in which you had to pre sign-up for dinner but none of this really bothered us. We were NOT on a schedule and had no place to go beside a beach or pool...
Our adorable Caribbean styled cottage!
Netting in case you want to sleep with the doors open.
HELLO hammock of relaxation!
Our bathroom decorated with local flowers upon arrival.

If anyone knows us, we like champagne to get the party started.. OH and the awesome indoor/outdoor shower.. SO FUN!
Nothing like local caribbean music..
YUMMY caribbean spiney lobster... WOW!
OH and fresh coconut shrimp?! Out of this world!
GOOD MORNINGGGGG!OK, enough chatting and more photos!!! Here are some more gorgeous photos of the infinity pools and gorgeous beach(es), yes beaches, there are 365 on the island, of beautiful Antigua!!
Oh and we also had dinner on the beach.. super romantic, I'd highly recommend it!
That's all folks! Our amazing Antiguan honeymoon! Like I said, I loved the resort but even if the resort isn't your style, I'd highly recommend Antigua because it's a GORGEOUS island with the most beautiful beaches, warm weather, and soft sand. The people are friendly and so welcoming and it's not over populated with tourists susurprisingly, so it's easy to find a secluded beach with hardly anyone on it. Where else can you do that?!
Now if only we were there right now... Until next time.
