    That sounds like a joke my SO would make. 

    I asked him what he thought and he said “I like hiking, but I don’t like hiking for very long.” 

    But if you two love hiking–I say go to Canada!

    I also forgot to add that I’ve been to Vancouver. The gardens there are gorgeous. You should totally go.

    i’ve never been to either, however for a honeymoon I reccommend going somewhere relaxing. We went to Thailand and chilled by the pool or on a beach, so maybe go to Mexico. Plus Canada is prob moe kid friendly so u could go there after u have children.

    I’ve been to Tulum in 2000. And all I have to say is HOLY WOW!!!! I’m biased, though. I love love love the beach and water and sun and sand and spanish language and Mexico and the food of that region (I was actually there on a study abroad). Things might have changed in a decade, though.

    I’ve been to Vancouver. It’s nice an all but Tulum is amazing.  I went to Rivera Maya on my honeymoon and had a blast.  I went ziplinging. I went snorklining. I went dune buggying.  I went on another ziplining tour where we ziplined into a cenote. It was so much fun. The ruins are nice, there’s a really nice beach right near the ruins. 

    If I had more money, I would have gone horseback riding or there’s this adventure beach park where you can do any type of water sport. They had a zipline from land to the small island where the park was.  If I go back, I’m definitely go to there.  I think you can swim with the dolphins on another excursion, too. 


    Oh, Vancouver, me and the Darling Husband went to Stanley park and rented a tandem bike.  I was fun because I never rode on a tandem bike before.  It was fun doing it as a couple.

    @kingytobe: I’m honestly not sure besides that. I’ve been once during a long layover, and we passed time in the gardens. You should track down Bellanouva! She’s Canadian, and I can’t remember if she lives in Vancouver or is just getting married there–but she’ll have some more info!

    Mexico is amazing and Tulum is breathtaking! You will be able to relax on the beach, see amazing cultural sites, and be as active as you would like! It is a great option for something that is foreign but familiar. Plus Mexico offers lots of great adults only all inclusive so you won’t have to worry about pulling out your pocketbook every time you want to eat or drink; it’s your honeymoon you shouldn’t have to worry about those kind of things!

    Canada would be a lot less stress.  Do you speak good Spanish?  I would go to Canada.  It is about the time you have together, not where you are.

    I do love Canada but I would go to Mexico.  We are also doing a short Honeymoon…7 days six nights but we’re still going to go to Hawaii and enjoy every moment of it. 🙂

    Another positive to Vancouver is that you could take the ferry to Victoria and spend a night there.  I love Victoria!  If you have 6 days and decide on BC, I’d definately recommend spending part of your time in Victoria. I didn’t vote because the two options are so different and it really depends on what sounds more fun to you.  June/July is a great time of year to visit BC.

    I grew up along the Texas/Mexico border and spent lots and lots of time in Mexico when I was younger… I absolutely would NOT go to Mexico right now.  The last time I was in Mexico was New Years of 2008 and that convinced me it would be a long, long time before I went back.

    Tulum!!!  I went in 2007 (before it became a popular destination) and it is one of the most amazing places I have ever been to.  Trip Advisor just listed it as the most beautiful beach in the world.  I am normally a city traveler (don’t like to lie around and do nothing), but the sand in Tulum is soft and fine like baking flour, imagine running your feet through 8 inches of that!  Plus Tulum feels secluded and off the beaten path compared to Cancun or Playa del Carmen, if you book one of the beach bungalows farther away from the main strip in town, it’ll feel like your own private beach.  We stayed at a small hotel (Tierras del Sol) that had its own generator so there was no electricity from 9:00pm on.  Being a city girl, I thought I would hate this, but in this day and age, being forced to be “off the grid” turned out to be sooooo relaxing.  No laptops allowed!  Below is a photo of the sunset from the porch of our oceanfront cabana.

    There is a lot of political unrest in Mexico right now, but generally it’s in central Mexico.  I personally see it as a great time to sieze some travel deals to Mexico as more conservative travelers would choose to bypass Mexico after being bombarded by all the negative media.  But I take on the view of this post: http://travel.booklocker.com/2010/12/22/8-2-million-tourists-heads-still-attached-after-visiting-mexico/
