Hawii would be beach weather during that time. Otherwise, you’d need to go more tropical than anywhere in the states.

I am usually in Mexico during Jan/Feb/March each year. Sometimes it’s chilly, and other times it’s hot.

@glitterdiva:  We’re geeting married in January and heading to Costa Rica after! It’s during their dry season and we plan to split tim ebetween the rainforest and the beach areas, but you could always do just the beach. Check out Tamarindo, Guanacaste, Manuel Antonio and Playa Conchal!

@sparklerunner:  Costa Rica was going to be my recommendation too.  Or St. Maarten since it’s far enough South that the weather should be nice.

@glitterdiva:  Hmmm, I’m not sure what you can do within a short time/flight range at that time of year that isn’t Mexico/Carribean. If you can be negotiable on travel time (particularly with overnight flights), what about Brazil or Uruguay? It’ll be summer there so the temperatures will be nice, and both countires are known for their beautiful beaches AND culture. If it sounds at all doable, I suggest reading up on Uruguay, in particular. It really is a hidden gem of a country, and I’m eager to visit.

FI and I are going to Peru and Chile for our honeymoon (probably in April), and I would suggest those are well, but the beaches in both countires are pretty cold due to the Humboldt current until you get to northern Peru. Plus, Machu Picchu (a major reason to visit Peru) is not that great for visits in January.

If you opt for Hawaii, Kona is where you’re going to have good deep sea fishing. That being said, the weather is almost always nice. It’s definitely going to have the most “tropical” feel of most destinations.







I’d consider Isla Mujeres, Mexico. It’s a small island, about a 20 minute ferry ride from Cancun.  In January the weather is usually warm enough, it’s known for world class sporfishing (sailfish), they have a dolphin encounter place, the island is small enough you do the whole thing by golf cart. Great restaurants, nice beach, plenty of activities (fishing, snorkling, dolphin swims, jet skis, boat trips, etc). You can hop the ferry back over to Cancun (it departs every 30 minutes until 11:30pm) where you visit the hotel/shopping district or take a shuttle/excursion to see the Mayan Ruins.

@glitterdiva:  cancun and the riviera maya are beautiful in january.  the evenings can be cooler but the days are lovely.  (i have a home 3 hours from there so i know).

i love the area just south of cancun.  great resorts, beautiful beaches and so much to do.  our favourite area is puerto morelos because it’s close to everything.  it’s between cancun and playa del carmen.  a quick taxi or shuttle will take you to either of these places for little fare.  it’s also close to all of the excursions. 

it really depends on what you want to do on your honeymoon; adventure, culture, water sports, shopping, nightlife, etc.

feel free to pm me if you have any other questions about the area.
