TO @HuskerGirl:  Cheapest AIs are going to be found in Mexico, Jamaica and Dominican Republic.

Personaly, Mr TTR & I wouldn’t go back to either DR or Jamaica… and we haven’t been to Mexico yet (or Cuba which is also cheap but as someone who lives in the USA, “technically” you cannot go there)

Hope this helps,

PS… Are you looking to go at the end of May / early June… your WB Profile says your Wedding Date is May 24, 2014.

TO @HuskerGirl:  Mexico (the popular tourist areas) is a lot safer than Jamaica, IMO.

Hawaii as @lilchicana: mentioned would be great if you too could find such a deal.

Have you thought about a cruise ?  They are as nice as an AI in many ways, and you unpack once and the world comes to you each day.  Nothing like the pampering you get on a cruise ship.  May / June is the ideal time to cruise / visit Bermuda (there is another great destination for a Honeymoon.  There are some AIs in Bermuda)

If money is an issue, May / June is a good time for Florida too… your money will definitely go further if you don’t leave the continental USA.

Florida offers so much to see and do year-round… LOVE the whole state.  You could do a fly / drive holiday, or just aim for one area… Tampa, Orlando, Disney, Gulf Coast, The Keys / Key West

I would suggest Jamaica!   Love it, and never felt unsafe at all….. Going back for my 4th time in a month and again in April.

Also if this helps

jamaica is more rustic and chilled

mexico is more cosmopolitan.

you can make your money go further in mexico.

Negril in jamaica would be the best choice.

I would recommend St Lucia, or St Kitts & Nevis. Jamaica is also very nice. I did a cruise of those islands. There were more but I liked those best. I’ve not been to Mexico but friends have said its very nice.

We LOVE going to our AI in Mexico.  We’ve been many times, with no problems, we basically stay at the resort, but we do go on a couple of tours, and have walked around a bit in the main downtown areas.

We went to Costa Rica and stayed at the brand new RIU PALACE. The resort was amazing and the weather was perfect (we went mid april).  We stayed for 9 nights and spent around $5,000. Got a great deal because we booked before it opened. Check it out, awesome resort.
