Any thoughts on where to go for an early June honeymoon? We have a couple of requirements:
1) we only have one week and don’t want to spend a huge chunk of time just getting there. (we’re travelling from california)
2) must have a mix of paradise, nature and culture.
We thought about maybe costa rica, but it’ll be the middle of their rainy season and I’m worried the weather will be too unpredictable.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Sounds like we’re in the same boat – June, 1 week and from California. Right now we’re looking at Maui because he has lots of sun and sand. There’s also beautiful hiking if you’re into that. I too would be interested in what others would recommend.

Our wedding is June 6, and we’re doing Costa Rica – they said that since it’s the beginning of the rainy season, that you might get a quick afternoon shower at most. It will probably be refreshing anyway :). Good luck!

Our wedding in June 20. We are in Maryland so we have a choice of the carribean. Still haven’t picked but we are thinking Jamaica or Bahamas. But we both dream of going to Hawaii! However, we don’t have that much money and the flight would be soo long, especially since we want to leave the next morning. You’re lucky you’re close by!! (That being said, I would look into a nice place in Hawaii) 😉

Thanks for the suggestions ladies. I love hawaii, but both of us have been a few times because we have family there and we wanted to go someplace that neither of I has been so we can experience it for the first time togather. I think at this point we are leaning towards costa rica. If it’s just a couple of showers in the afternoon, I think we can deal. If I had just a little bit more time, I would love to go to Ecuador and the galapagos islands. Maybe for one of our anniversaries =)

If you are going to Costa Rica, you should checkout this place (for the pictures if nothing else!) http://www.mytropicalhoneymoon.com
It’sa really beautiful country. I’ve been there in June and they are right – weather wise you usually only have romantic warm afternoon rains. Also above the 12th meridian, so it is out of the hurricane paths. Good luck!

We’re getting married June 6, 2009, and are going on a "minimoon" to Saltspring Island in British Columbia, Canada. We live in Vancouver, BC, so it’s not a far trip but we certainly will be getting away from it all! They have a big artisan community from artisan cheese to pottery to anything really. And there are so many different kinds of vacation properties running from the rustic to the luxurious! We looked at one that was only accesible by boat or seaplane!

We are also getting married 6.6.09 and just visited Costa Rica in January. I wouldn’t worry about rainy season or not – we were there during dry season and it still rained a little bit every day – thats how it is there because of the rainforest (especially depending on what part of the country you are in).
I would recommend Arenas del Mar in Manuel Antonio….it was the most romantic, GORGEOUS resort I have ever stayed at. I wish we were going back there for our honeymoon!
