    I say Greece. Its your honeymoon! Aruba is much more accessible so you’re more likely to be able to visit for a later trip. I know about a handful of people that have gone to Greece lately and the financial crisis didn’t affect them at all. There are protests here and there, but they are mainly outside govt buildings where you wouldn’t be (or I wouldn’t expect you to be, as a tourist…) anyway. Sometimes public transportation (buses) go on strike, but that happens anywhere and everywhere.

     

    For travel, I always use the forums on Fodors.com. So many experts that can advise you on both countries!

    In october i would say Aruba or some where else in the caribe where there is a little bit more to do if that’s wat you are looking for.

    Greece is beautyful, much more than Aruba but i would prefer to go in a time where you can go to the beach for sure.

    I feel like this is a no brainer…Greece.  Duh!  Us Americans have the caribbean so accessible, if you have the opportunity to do something else, take it.

    DH and I considered Greece for a trip this year, but the flight is nearly full (I work for an airline).  So the financial situation isn’t hurting tourism.  You will likely catch a non stop flight from a major eastcoast airport.  From here it’s overnight at 10 hours, so you will sleep through most of it and wake up in Europe.  Not an awful flight.   Plus a 2ish hour flight to the coast from where you are.

    Definitely Greece!!! It’s so beautiful, the food is amazing, the people are very friendly and laid-back…and there’s just so much to do and so many potential adventures. I could never get bored traveling around Greece, I love that country.

    if u want a mixture of culture and relaxing im going to marrakech. just an idea. we founf all inclusive 4* for a week for both of us is £1000. then you can add on camel trekking 4×4 mountain day etc…

    so u may be able to find something fab for about 1700 as ur flights would be more.~X

    I’m definitely biased, because FI and I chose Aruba for out honeymoon.  We chose it because the price is incredible for what we’re getting, plus it’s an extremely short flight (3 hours).  We’d love to go to Greece someday, but after all the stress of the wedding, the last thing I’ll want to do is sit on a plane for 11 hours!

    @PinkBubbles:  

     

    That’s true. Maybe you can consider Curacao, much more culture and an European vibe but also in a safe zone and terrrific weather.
