Hi ladies!! My fiance and I are trying to figure out where to go for our honeymoon but aren’t having such good luck. After searching high and low (literally) it hit me. Why haven’t I consulted the hive?!? DUH! So I’m hoping you guys may have some suggestions for us to check out. Basically we’re looking for something tropical (preferably not in the U.S. – Hawaii included), all inclusive, for one week at around $3,000. Is that even doable or am I totally crazy? Please help!! I’m dying here and need some helpful advice. Thanks ya’ll!! 🙂

We just booked a 7 night honeymoon to Playa del Carmen for right at $3,000 (includes airfare from Chicago) through Orbitz. We’re staying at Secrets Maroma Beach which is all-inclusive and looks amazing, and has great reviews on Trip Advisor. It’s during hurricane season, but we’re deciding to risk it. We did book trip insurance for about $150.

Your wedding is in the off season for the Carribean so you should be able to get a REALLY nice stay for that. We are staying in the Riviera Maya at the Grand Palladium for our wedding. But really you can’t go wrong with any of the resorts from Playa Del Carmen to Tulum.

cheapcaribbean.com – i read it somewhere on here earlier today and i just played around and for all inclusive to jamaica from toronto would be just around $3000, so it’s definately possible.

I thought this map was helpful. We booked at Sunset At the Palms thru this site and were very happy with them. The ones with the red dots behind the name are the all inclusives on the beaches side of Jamaica.
Our resort was about $350/night for two people. That included ALL meals, drinks, tax and tips.

me and the honey are going to the DR all-inclusive for VERY close to 3k – leaving from Raleigh, NC
Sunday – Saturday trip

Definitely look into DR. There are lots of flights/AI deals and I think you could definitely get a package for around $3k. The Riu Resort in Punta Cana is a really good value.

I totally agree with katrinab – we booked Exellence – Punta Cana, DR for $2300; 5 nights/6 days in April…all-inclusive! This place has awesome reviews (check out Tripadvisor to comapre).
Cheapcarribean is a great website. Also check out Jennifer at The Tropical Travelers

I know there’s an all inclusive resort in Cancun that runs for around $2K for a week. And that’s for the honeymoon suite.
My FH and I are actually looking into this one…
Let us know what you pick!!! Good luck!!!

Look into Apple vacations! They are the cheapest we have found, and they all seem to be all inclusive
Applevacations.com I think

Wow ladies! Thanks for all the great suggestions. Initially we were thinking Sandals Negril but after doing a little research we started hearing some not so great things about it. I have recently looked into the DR and was pretty impressed with the Excellence Punta Cana. I had never really thought of the DR as a possibility but I’m really starting to warm up to the idea. It seems gorgeous there. We’ve also looked into some the RIU resorts and all of them seemed to be super cheap…like $1600 – $2000 total for 7 nights for 2 people with roundtrip airfare. But I’m a little wary about that because I’m not sure if they’re cheap for a reason (ie. not so nice.) Thanks again for all the advice!! Please keep it comin. You guys are the greatest! 🙂

Check out Southwest Vactions. We went to Disney in September and they were by far the cheapest.

Occidental Grand Cozumel. It is beautiful and inexpensive.

Might I suggest cheapcarribbean? it’s got great prices and places!
Also do check out where my sis and bil go every year on anniversary. You probably could come in right around there but do check it out! round hill resort, jamaica.
I can’t say enough good things about it having heard my sis and bil gush over it for the last 3 years. If we weren’t in a recession and all my friends had more $$, we’d be getting married there!
