Jazz..everyone has a different idea about what they want on vacation. If your wife is dead set on Hawai,she may NOT like AC(I can't imagine it,but it may happen). It is very different from Cancun or Hawaii. We were very prepared after searching this web site and the web for pictures,etc. Once you have been,however, you catch the magic! The weather is perfect almost all the time, Let her explore the web-sites and get a good look,read the posts,etc. Good luck!
