    warm water Scuba diving + Mountain Biking destinations?

    Looking for a place to honeymoon for 2 weeks in January/February. Is there one place with both stellar singletrack and warm water scuba diving? Or even a 2 stop vacation. 1st stop biking, second stop scuba. We have been to Australia, Hawaii, and Mexico so trying to go somewhere new.

    How about Miami beach? Trails within an hour and scuba and beaches all around...

    I would of never guessed Miami to have single track. Good to know. For this trip we are looking for something more "exotic".

    I enjoy the diving in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and had a great time riding in San Jose del Cabo. There is a good bike shop in San Jose del Cabo and they can arrange for a guide. It's not single track, but rather open desert riding.

    Bonaire. Great shore diving and decent mountain biking. There's even a mountain bike race there in October: Info Bonaire - Biking - Street and Off Road Cycling

    Not sure if you've planned your vacation already, but consider Bike Paradise in Scottsdale, AZ if you'd like to get away during the winter months. We have nearly perfect weather here during the winter, and offer an all-inclusive luxury mountain bike vacation. You can also choose to augment your stay with professional level coaching.

    Believe it or not, there are many dive shops in Phoenix that we could hook you up with to find a second stop for your vacation.

    Check us out at Bike Paradise - AZ. There is a link to our Facebook page there as well.

    Cheers,

    I'll second Bonaire. The diving is fantastic and there is enough biking to keep any one busy for a while. I think it would be a fantastic honeymoon location.

    You don't have to go with an operator. There are maps and rental bikes available. Bonaire is pretty interesting above ground as it is a true desert; not tropical at all. There is lots to love about a trip to Bonaire.
