This blogger thinks that Hawaii is better than the Caribbean. I've never been to Hawaii, but the Caribbean is pretty awesome, so I'm not sure I agree.

1.. The Aloha Spirit

2. Volcanoes!

3. The Climate and Terrain Diversity

4. The Food

5. The Polynesian Culture

6. Hawaii feels safer.

7. The US Dollar

Which is better?

Been to the Bahamas and Aruba. I like the beaches there with it's powdery white sand and crystal clear water.

Been to the different islands in Hawaii.
Maui - Drive the Road to Hana where we saw lots of waterfalls, black sand beach and a red sand beach; long stretch beaches like Ka'anapali, Haleakala , which is considered dormant, (although not volcanic in origin but exists in volcanic mountain)

Big Island - Kilauea, an active volcano in Hilo
Green Sand Beach in Kona

Oahu - North Shore beaches famous for surfing
Climbing Diamobd Head - extinct volcano

Kauai - Beaches, hiking and Waimea Canyon

Hawaii is not only beaches and volcanos. There are lots of activities to do. You hike along the coastline you see pods of dolphins and whales (depending on the time of the year). We saw a monk seal in Kaena Point in Oahu, green sea turtles in Laniakea Beach. You don't need to go on a tour bus to experience these. And if you're an avid "Lost" fan you can visit its different film locations while you are there.

Puerto Rico is a paradise island as diverse as Hawaii, just do your homework. In terms of flora, fauna, ecosystems, wonders of nature, culture (spanish, african, taino-native & american). We also have whales and the best phosphorescent bay in the world. Compare the price and then there will be nothing else to compare..never mind the best rums, coffee and pineapple...
