Looking for a great all inclusive to honeymoon in late July. What's your favorite? Thinking Aruba, Punta Cana, Turks and Caicos or Anguilla? We want to relax but also enjoy activities such as snorkeling and sailing.
I am a huge fan of Turks and Caicos, but not for the all inclusives (I believe that there are only 2 and they are sooo expensive!). If a non AI is an option, look at places like Seven Stars Resort Grace Bay, The Regent Palms or the Gansevoort Hotel. In the 4 star range Sands at Grace Bay and Ocean Club Resort are good too. Most places include breakfast (a substantial breakfast) and non motorized watersports are included. Many of the hotels have kitchens/kitchenettes, the food is fresh and delicious on the island, and there are some really nice grocery stores to buy your staples. Further - because there are so few all inclusives in Providenciales (Provo), people venture out of their hotels to eat. As such, the quality of other hotel and town restaurants is amazing. The island of Provo has such a great vibe and you can't beat the beach. Love the people and love the food. Good luck!

Not many All inc options in Turks and Caicos (if any). I would do Punta Cana for a Latin Experience and Aruba for a more exotic one. You'll find better deals in Punta Cana as there are lots of hotels; best hotels: The Reserve at Paradisus Punta Cana Resort, Hotel Riu Palace Bávaro, Hotel Majestic Elegance Punta Cana and Excellence Punta Cana.
In Aruba go to RIU Palace Antillas for an Adults Only experience. Avoid Tamarijn and Occidental.

Personally, for July, which is unavoidably Hurricane Season in the Caribbean, I would head to the West Coast of either Mexico or Costa Rica. Could be that you have no issues with a Hurricane in the Caribbean, however if you do, and you are on a Honeymoon, it could be very disappointing. One aspect of heading west to avoid Hurricane Season is that the Pacific does not have great snorkeling. Both countries offer inclusive resorts however, beaches, and warm weather, with no hurricane issues.
I have been in the Carribean many times. Aruba doesnt have much happening. Small desolate island except for one area by resorts. Jamaica is wonderful...Dunns River Falls is awesome. Most hotels have all kinds of fun island things going on. Snorkeling is good there also. My favorite is St Thomas but I like to shop..Jamaica is for you and your new husband. Make sure to tell all the island people you are newly weds...have fun girl enjoy every moment of your honeymoon
