Honeymoons

Anyone know where they are going yet? We only have a limited time Sunday-Saturday, so 6 nights, and cant decide how to maximize it. We cant spend longer for 2 reasons, 1 the sunday after our wedding is Easter and we cant miss the Easter Bunny coming for our son, and 2, this will be the first time I will have left my son for any length of time.. weve yet to even spend a night apart... so I need to ease into it.

Just curious what the rest of you ladies are thinking of doing!

Re: Honeymoons

FH and I really want to go to Hawaii but we're not sure if we will be able to afford it. I would like to island hop, at least 2 islands and go for about 12 days. VERY EXPENSIVE!! I plan to start looking into it sometime after the New Year. I'm hoping we can find a good deal. I really see no other time we'll be able to go since we plan to start trying for a baby right after the HM.

If we won't be able to do Hawaii then we'll pick a Caribbean Island. Not sure which one though. I'm a little iffy about going to one in Oct though because I've traveled to PR and DR in Oct and didn't get the best of weather so I'm guess I'm a little worried.

Re: Honeymoons

Love Antigua and St. Lucia! This past April FH and I went on a southern caribbean cruise that visited both of those islands.. I cant say enough amazing things about either. They were both beautiful.

FH wants to do something we've never done before, hes suggested Belize and Costa Rica. I myself think It would be really nice to go to an all inclusive and lay around for a few days. We do have a young son, so we NEVER get to do that EVER! Even on our cruise, our son was 18 months so laying on the beach wasnt an option for us.. I mean dont get me wrong, we had an amazing time with him, but I think the two of us should take advantage of this alone time. Such decisions

Re: Honeymoons

Definitely doing Hawaii!! I've always wanted to go there and I figure now is the time to do it before the babies come along! LOL

Maybe look into Turks or Barbados also! I usually go to Liberty Travel - they really price shop out the best choices when we've gone away. Then I come home and compare $$ if I did it myself LOL

Re: Honeymoons

I was thinking about this today.. I dont know if I am going to be up for a honeymoon after spending 7 days in Punta Cana ( destination wedding) but if we do it's between Aruba, Antigua, or St. Lucia... I know I want to be on an island.. I may not go right from Punta Cana though we have 2 daughters and I want to make sure they get home first ( NY) before we can be away for 1 week or so.. so maybe mid July is when we will plan to leave on HM..

Hawaii is generally expensive, but it is possible to do on more of a budget. If you're really set on it, try looking into condo rentals instead of 4-star hotels to save money. When you budget, remember that food there is really expensive because almost everything is imported.

If you're looking in the Caribbean during hurricane season, check out Aruba. It rarely gets hit by hurricanes and it's nice year-
round.



Thanks for the tips!

Re: Honeymoons

Multiple thoughts...

FH is excited about going to Puerto Rico and showing me (never been thre) but he has spent every summer there as a child until he was like 15. That's not a honeymoon area to me.

Then there's Costa Rica, where FH's family is from, and parts are supposed to be goregous. I am more onboard for this.

I'd love to go back over to Europe, see maybe visit the Spanish Riveria and travel Spain/Italy. FH is interestedin going to Spain, but he wants some lazy days on the beach not to spend every day sight seeing.

Ultimately - a goregous beach with travel options to cultural places is ideal for us. We're looking for a compromise.
