Babymoon in February- Dominican Republic or St. Lucia

My husband and I are torn between DR and St. Lucia for our babymoon. Was leaning towards St. Lucia, more nature and less touristy, but since I won’t be able to hike the Pitons and it’s more expensive, not sure. We’re looking to stay at a resort and have a mix of beach time and activities.

May one ask, what considerations have you given towards medical care if needed? Also, not knowing your point of origin….??

Excellent point by stranieri im #1.

As for St Lucia - how far along will you be? Why wouldn't you be able to hike Gros Piton - assuming you're not talking traveling while 5 or 6 months pregnant?

There are other hikes in St Lucia that give the same spectacular views as the Pitons, without the strenuous hiking - Tet Paul being one..

That said - why those two? St Lucia is amazing, obviously lol, but if you're not going to be able to do the activities you want to do here while pregnant, why visit then?

For a babymoon - relaxing and some mild activities are probably more in order - and DR, MX, Antigua are likely more suited - not as strenuous, less expensive ($$$ for that little one!!), easy to get to from most anywhere (as your location isn't listed, we're just guessing), etc.

I'd save St Lucia for when you're able to actually participate in the activities you're most interested in - either before pregnant or after the little one is a older ..

Congrats.
