Chase, I have american, united, delta, and southwest I can use points with. 

Wedding is June 17th, so anything there after. 

Min probably 6-7 nights.  No max, well I guess no 20 nights or nothing like that.

Just saw this post. Which airline do you have the highest miles accumulation with and how many miles do you have with that particular airline?

We just used 375,000 delta miles for our honeymoon round trip to Buenos Aires for two Delta One tickets.

What airline?

I ask because I fly 1-2x per week. I may have some good ideas, based on what which frequent flier program you're using.

I use Chase which gives me a between a 1 and 1.15 to 1 ration to convert to United, Delta, and Southwest I believe.

The miles are through the CHase rewards program, so they convert to any of the listed airlines.  I should be somewhere around 225,000 or so by the time we book.

Gotcha.

Do y'all want to fly first class?

If so, for two tickets, you may be somewhat limited depending how far out of the U.S. you want to go. But for Coach, you'll probably be able to go just about anywhere.

Hell coach is fine, we aren't looking to join the mile High club so don't need the extra room in first class.

I have never purchased a first class ticket in my life, but since hitting diamond with Delta, I get upgraded about 90% of the time. Im getting spoiled.

The reason I ask -- we used miles for free first class to Argentina because it's like 9-10 hours in the air from Atlanta. It's worth spending the extra miles on a 7+ hour flight. I flew coach to Shanghai a couple of years ago and it dunked my body up for a month. Otherwise it's a waste.

In terms of a shorter flight in a tropical location -- most of the U.S. flights to Havana will be up and running by early 2017. That would be super high on my list. Especially since the Trump administration may roll back ties with Cuba -- go while you can!

And to be honest, it's her that would turn down the idea of joing, I'd do it in a heart beat!

I flew to japan a couple years back for work and regretted not upgrading.  If I was doing a Bora Bora trip or something I would definitely be looking into it.  At this time we haven't pinpointed exactly what we want so can't say yes or no. 

I'd love to go to cuba before the american industrialize it, which I think is already happening.  I thinkn if I were to do that thought I'd just make a 3-4 day weekend trip out of it and go.

How long did you stay there?

How was the jet lag?

Did you enjoy things around the island besides the hut?  Care to give some details about what you had to do?

Time of year?  I ask because I'm reading some articles that it can be so hot and humid it's almost unbearable to be outside all day. 

And most importantly is that your wife pictured sunbathing?  I approve!

Stayed for a week. The island is small we went out of resort a couple of nights. You can ride a bike almost all  the way around island in an afternoon. We went in March and weather was perfect. It's not a great party place but very romantic and beautiful and peaceful .  Can feed tropical fish in the glass bottom of your living room and your breakfast delivered in a canoe.

Looks like you stayed at the one on the mainland.  We went there one day, got a kayak and paddled out to the coral gardens to snorkel.  The wife dropped a bundle on some black pearls in the store that's in the lobby.  The one where we stated was on one of the motus that surround the main island.

Yes I did.  We went out trolling for marlin.  Didn't get a marlin but we dropped a line a few times and caught some mackerel.  Ate one of them right there on the boat.  Had a GREAT time.

Just saw your message wildhog. 

I like fishing!  Went to the keys last year and we did some marlin (not the same marlin you did) and took it to a local restaurant that night.  Was absolutely amazing.

There comes a point in time where the romp romp morphs from stereotypical to endangered.
