My wedding was last week (whoo hoo!) and we had a mini-honeymoon immediately afterwards. Since it was so short (and we were staying in the same location with our families who had travelled for the wedding, so not totally private) I am hoping to do another romantic trip over the Thanksgiving holiday. We love to explore new cities and the outdoors, visit historical sites, etc. but I also want somewhere where I won’t feel bad just relaxing (although neither of us are really lie-on-the-beach-all-day people). I’m trying to keep flight+hotel to about $1,400 total for 3-4 nights and we’ll be leaving from the DC area. In the US is fine but we’d also love to travel elsewhere if it’s feasible (husband has never been outside of the US!). Please give me your budget honeymoon suggestions. Thank you!!

Punta Cana was the first thing I thought about. This is a LITTLE over budget but?
Then there’s mexico
And southwest flies to cancun. My brother did cancun and it was NOT the shit show of our college days. Very fun. I know there are all inclusive stays at cheapcaribbean.com but i haven’t used it and i’m unsure how safe it is.

audrey_lane: Awesome, thanks! I hadn’t thought of looking at Groupon. Both of those would be doable within our budget with some stretching. I’m keeping an eye out on cheapcaribbean too!

How about a short cruise from Miami? Or you could go to Puerto Rico? I think you could do either within your budget.
I recommend using the Kayak “explore” feature. You can plug in the month, departure airport and max price you want to pay and it will show you what destinations you can fly to.
