Travel: 5 Classy Caribbean getaways for a great Divorce Honeymoon

So you are getting divorced. Will you be having a divorce honeymoon? This is the new black, you know: Divorce honeymoons. These are only for the ultra civilized. It takes a superior level of class for a couple to end a marriage in a classy, celebratory way. It takes CLASS. Are you up to it? Do you have enough class to go on a divorce honeymoon with your soon to be ex and the kids in tow? Gwyneth Paltrow recently did it with her soon to be ex Cris Martin. Brad and Jen also did it. And others as well in the public eye. But it is rare. It is a rarefied skill. Not everybody can do it. Not everybody has enough CLASS. But if you are in that rarefied group of folks (not even the top 1 percent of the population of divorcing folks) then here are five glamorous Caribbean getaways to consider:
 
1.  Cozumel
Cozumel is this really charming little island in the Yucatan Peninsular whose waters you have to see to believe. It is a great place to undo a broken marriage and say goodbye to your soon to be ex.  Here is an excerpt from http://www.yucatan-holidays.com/featured-articles/cozumel/ :

Cozumel1Experience amazing water sports and activities on the island of Cozumel (meaning “Land of the Swallow”), named by the Mayans for its many native birds. Cozumel is located in the Mexico Caribbean on the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo.  Only 60 kilometers (36 miles) south of Cancun, it’s easy to reach by ferry from Playa del Carmen’s port or by ship on a Cozumel cruise.  Cozumel is best known for the spectacular fish and marine life of its coral reef, the Palancar Reef, and is recognized as one of the top two travel sites for scuba diving worldwide.  It’s also a great place to snorkel, kayak, and go deep-sea fishing, or swim with the dolphins; take submarine tours, sunset sailing and snorkeling tours, or glass bottom boat rides.  Then relax at Playa Uvas, a beautiful beach inside the Chankanaab National Marine Park, or tour Punta Sur Ecological Park, a protected nature reserve, containing turtle nesting beaches, coral reefs, mangrove forests, salt-water lagoons, Mayan ruins, the Punta Celarain lighthouse, and Colombia Lagoon, a haven for endangered sea turtles.  The natural treasures of Cozumel await you!

2. Antigua
Antigua is a beautiful island. It is a great honeymoon destination for marrying and divorcing couples alike. The waters in Antigua truly have a truly pristine quality. antigua-jolly-bayThe west side of the island is truly remarkable and great for swimmers, snorklers and relaxers alike. If you like  powdery sand and sweet air that smells of mangos, bouganvilleas and herbs, it might work out. The year round warm weather makes this a go to destination any time of the year.
