We are going to a Sandals resort in St. Lucia. We are staying at the Sandals Grande but there are two other Sandals resorts on the Island so you can actually go and play at all 3. Like use all of there amentities & restaurants.  Have fun deciding, I know it can be a tough decision!!

We honeymooned at the Sandals Grande St.Lucian for a week and LOVED it!. LIke @jws11 said, there are 3 sandals resorts there and might differ in price a little bit. I’ve also heard good things about the sandals resorts in Jamiaca.. Happy planning!!

Also, there are great places to visit in Costa Rica that are very reasonable if you are willing to research a little πŸ™‚

We’re going on a cruise that leaves out of Florida and goes to Cozumel, Jamaica, the Bahamas and Belize. We couldn’t pick a destination so we’re going everywhere!

It just depends on what you want. In Jamaica, I’ve heard you really don’t want to leave the resorts, the island overall is a bit sketchy. You should be ok where ever you go if you hit St Lucia, Aruba, Barbados, etc.

@ranunculuslove:

 

That’s what I did.  Costa Rica is fairly cheap, and for a $3500 budget you can go for about 2 weeks and have a blast (I got a darn good deal on a resort though) πŸ™‚

I went to the Playa Flamingo area and it was beautiful….there are a few great resorts in that area that are all inclusive.  If you are looking for just 4 nights at that budget….I would recommend Paradisus Playa Conchal.  It’s right on Playa Conchal and lemme tell you, Conchal is a GORGEOUS beach.  The Resort is amazing as well.  Expensive, but I think it is worth it.

I think what you need to think about is what you may want to do while on your honeymoon. If you want to chill out at the beach all day, pretty much anywhere in the caribbean is fine. If you want to do things like snorkeling, you may want to check into islands that are known for that as not all are. The islands in the Caribbean are known for different things, and depending on what you want to do while there, that may help you decide on where you would like to do an AI.

Skip Sandals and go with the Secrets Resorts.  You can get an amazing room, resort, and price at Secrets Wild Orchid which will give you priveleges at their sister resort right next door called Secrets St. James.  These resorts are less than a year old right now and are absolutely gorgeous!  They just aren’t advertised as much as Sandals, which is why the pricing is better and you pay so much with Sandals.  Have a travel agent check it out for you!  πŸ™‚
