This story is so tragic, but you look like you are having so much fun in your photos- lol! At least you got some good photo ops out of the trip, right? πŸ™‚ That third one down of you guys on the beach is GORGEOUS!

That sucks! Sorry you had a bad honeymoon πŸ™

About the poverty and seeing the kids… I feel this way too but at the same time if people stopped going to these places there would be even worse poverty since so many of them rely on tourism. I just remember to always treat everyone I meet with extreme kindness (and nice tips for those who provide a service!). 

I love the colours in that second photo!

ETA: I went to Cuba years ago with my mom and we stayed at the worst resort ever. Our room was a lot like yours, moldy, bugs etc. The shower was so NASTY and moldy that it was black in patches.

You have stunning pictures for a terrible trip. Have you contacted the resort at all to let them know about your complaints? If I were you, I would mail off a letter immediately.

Wow, you don’t expect your first trial as a married couple to be the honeymoon! Glad you are safely home and your photos are gorgeous πŸ™‚ Did you schedule a photo shoot during your trip? What a fun idea…

Wow, I am so sorry you went through all of that.  I felt so bad for you while reading your story. I hope other brides read this that are planning that trip, too.  On another note, you look beaaaaautiful in your pics.

P.S. I hope you left a bad review for that hotel.  That’s awful.

Wow! That’s amazingly bad! I just kept reading and reading getting more horrified, and I TOTALLY would have cried over the ring. So sorry!! Hopefully this will become a funny hm story to tell people after you get over the disappointment of it. Your pics are awesome btw- remember there will be other trips!

Sorry to hear about your horrible experience, you must be so dissapointed.  On the positive side – you have some fabulous pictures, and any future trips you guys take have to be better!!!

I think in a few months, or on your one year anniversary you should get to do a “do over” honeymoon!

Yikes! We were considering that resort but went with a cruise instead. I’m sorry your HM sucked. I agree with Miss Smurf, you should totally get a do over. 

Amazing pictures though!

Yes, the Caribbean islands are typically extremely poor. To make matters worse, the all-inclusive resorts are typically US or European-owned, with all that money people spend to stay there going back to a foreign country instead of helping out the local population. The jobs that do go to the locals tend to be the shockingly low-paid maid and server positions…which hardly lift the general population out of poverty.

A great documentary: “Life and Debt in Jamaica”.

The way that developed countries take advantage of the Carribean is pretty sickening, and the lack of knowledge most tourists have about the situation is just heartbreaking. We could be spending the money in much more effective ways t help the locals instead of funneling that money right back home!
