If you take a cruise it will allow you to go to multiple locations. Granted, they are all beach-like in nature, however, there is a great deal of variety in the excursions offered through various cruise lines not to mention always something different going on on the boat. All-inclusive (with the exception of alcohol) and reasonable, you can’t go wrong!

I agree with you, I feel like everytime I ask a couple where they are going for their honeymoon, it is always somewhere tropical. I think its because tropical locations are much more afforable. Unless you are going somewhere like Bora Bora, Hawaii or Fiji. Those are on my bucket list!

FOr our honeymoon, we are going to Paris and Spain. We are leaving Sept. 17 and returning the 28th. There will be a lot of walking, and dining, and just seeing the beauty of Paris and Spain.

I think you can still have fun in Costa Rica during rainy season because its not a place you go to just read a book on a beach, there are a lot of activities. Research and see what people do during rainy season! 🙂

@Mill:  What’s your budget?  All honeymoon locations are not created equal

@Mill:  what about hawaii?

i just saw what you wrote about how it might not be in your budget. I’d also suggest st. Thomas. You can go to the beach there and there are plenty of things to do there. Also from st. Thomas, you can take the ferry to visit st. Johns or Tortola (BVI). There’s a lot of nice things to do there and the beaches are wonderful.

Belize!

We spent 16 days there a few years ago and it was one of the best vacations I’ve had.  We had 8 days in the tropical forest and then 8 days on the coast.  There are fantastic Mayan ruins, caves, horseback riding, etc.

Belize is also noted for the best diving/snorkeling spots in the region.  

The hurricane  season ends in mid-October, so the timing is OK–still some rain in the south.  Stick to the northern regions.

@Mill:  i was just reading online that its hit or miss. You can get lucky in Costa Rica and get some sun, or it can just rain all the time. I don’t see anything wrong with you waiting until Nov. there are alot of couples that do that. I knew someone who had to post pone her honeymoon bc she had just started her internship. And you can definitely go to Costa Rica for $3K

@Mill:  The Belize dollar is tied to the US Dollar (2 to 1 US).  It was one of the most affordable vacations we took.  Places to stay are rather cheap. We stayed right on the beach in an efficiency 1 bedroom for $40 per night, and in the heart of the jungle near Xunantunich for about $60 per.  The meals were about what we pay for eating out in the US (maybe a little less), and then transportation/drivers (plus tips).  Our whole December  16 day vacation was under $3000 including airfare.  I would go back in a second I loved it so much, but we still have new places to explore.

 

Just stay out of Belize City if you go.  Everyplace else the people a great.
