- Wedding: June 2013
I can’t seem to decide on a honeymoon for this August (yes I know we are super close!). We were all set to do Hawaii (Maui and Kauai) but the travel agent came back with a trip that will be WAY out of budget. Our budget, I thought, was fairly healthy but I can’t imagine spending $8500 on 10 days and not freaking out over every little thing if it isn’t perfect. So, while, we could potentially splurge on this (although I feel like it is a LOT), I don’t think I could feel comfortable spending that much money on one trip. I am normally a budget traveler and so for me that is three or four trips in one!
So I have been looking in to other options on my own such as Costa Rica, Belize, St. Barths, Maui (my way…), Anguilla, St. Lucia and oddly, Iceland and Paris (free stopover in Iceland on Iceland Air). I have been to Iceland before and LOVED it and my DH has never been to Paris (although his grandparents used to live in the South of France and he has spent extensive time there). The probelm is that the hotels I like in Reykjavik are all booked up and I have no idea why so that may be out. Also Paris is sort of hot in the summer.
Can any bees help me out?
In Costa Rica I was looking at the JW Marriott but I am hungup because there is no good snorkeling there and I love snorkeling!
St. Barths I was looking at the Le Toiny private villa hotel (but it doesn’t have its own beach!)
Maui I’m still sort of at a loss because everything is ridiculously expensive and it’s $1200 for airfare for coach!
Anguilla seems gorgeous but people have told me there’s nothing to do at night.
St. Lucia I have heard great things about but I can’t seem to find a place I like…
PLEASE HELP ME if you can recommend or tell me to stay away from any of these places! Or if you can recommend other places. I am making myself crazy because I really want to book this weekend and DH is working all weekend so I am here alone going nuts.
