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

Find the reasons here:

Which is better?

Yeah, I think it just depends on what you want.

I've only been to Hawaii once and the Caribbean once (Puerto Rico), so not sure if that's enough to adequately compare them. However...

They're both tropical, they both get summer rain, both have crystal blue, warm water and palm trees, both are humid and hot, have lovely beaches, lots of culture and history, both are touristy, have good food, good sports, etc.

But they are different. I agree it's kind of like comparing apples to oranges. In the Caribbean, you have more of a European and African influence, while in Hawaii, there's more of an Asian influence. So the overall feel is different. I don't think I would ever say one is better than the other, not at this point any way.

Well, it is hard to compare as they have their own draw, their own beauty and things to offer. HOWEVER, having been to both...I think I would pick Hawaii (Kauai to be specific). The beaches, the surf, the hiking, and yes, the Aloha spirit (I did experience that), the food, the overall beauty. And honestly, while some of the hotels aren't cheap, I recently found this company that has some killer deals on vacation rentals all around the island. You can stay in a beachfront home, with your own lanai for cheaper than a hotel! You should check it out (it's called Kauai Vacation Rentals). http://bit.ly/nQnSjN
