…or plan on going for you engaged couples?
We went to the Riviera Maya and stayed at Aventura Palace. My family is members to the Palace Resorts so we bought a week of them. It was Amazing! Swim up bar, all you can eat and drink. We did the zip-line and visited Mayan Ruins. They had a special honeymooners night. Last year we went to Cancun Palace before and called it our practice honeymoon. We werent even engaged! Its cold and snowy in NY. Im dreaming of our next trip! 1st year anniversary maybe?!

My husband and I didn’t get to go on a honeymoon because we had to move across the country the month after we got married. We are planning something for our first anniversary though.

We went to the Excellence Playa Mujeres, not far from the Riviera Maya, and it was fabulous!

I am from N CA and we got married in Savannah, GA, where we live (he’s stationed here in the army). A couple of days after the wedding, we flew back to CA with family and got my car ready to drive across the US back to GA. We called it our Road Trip Honeymoon! We stopped for two nights in Vegas, went to the Grand Canyon, stayed two nights in San Antonio (LOVE thre Riverwalk!), two nights in New Orleans just off Bourbon Street and a night in Orlando :). It was AWESOME! We both love road trips and man we lived each place up-when we left Vegas it was definitely time! LOL and we have HILARIOUS pictures from our nights in New Orleans! 🙂

Oh I keep hearing great things about Belize! Have a wonderful, amazing time!
We’re going to St. Lucia, at the Sandals resort 2 days after the wedding. I keep forgetting about the honeymoon because I’m so excited about and have been preparing for, the wedding day itself. We wanted to do Europe but it wasn’t in the cards.

@Jennifer- I hear Sandals is an AMAZING couples resort. We wanted to go to one but we got such a great deal on ours!

Great ideas here. I enjoyed Cancun and the Mayan ruins around there a lot when my family went several years ago, and I have heard and read wonderful things about St. Lucia. And there’s nothing like a cross-country roadtrip with your FI, we did that 2.5 years ago when FI moved from Virginia to Seattle and it was awesome. We’re thinking Moorea, that little island near Tahiti in French Polynesia. FILs are gifting us with Hilton points and I am pushing hard to use them in the amazing overwater bungalows at the Hilton resort in Moorea. The most important thing, and this was even emphasized in our pre-marriage prep course, is to relax on the honeymoon and enjoy being married after the stress of the wedding planning, and I’m hoping we can do tons of relaxing on the sand and in our little bungalow with froofy drinks. 🙂 (Plus the island is supposed to be beeeauuuutiful, when we do eventually decide to get off our butts and rent a scooter.)

We went to Europe. We visited London, Paris, French countryside, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Germany in a crazy, packed two week honeymoon. It was definitely the best trip of my life. 🙂 We had so much fun, we can’t to go back!

We went to the east coast of Jamaica, away from where most tourists go and stayed in a cottage on the side of a big hill/mountain that overlooked the ocean. Our vacations are usually incredibly energetic but we just wanted to relax since we knew we’d be tired from all the wedding festivities and it turned out quite nice.

We went to the Excellene Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for 8 nights. It was so amazing, I wish we could go back there! My parents are talking about taking a trip there, I so want us to go with them 🙂

This wasn’t a honeymoon but we went to Cancun in November and stayed at the Gran Caribe Real Resort. It was amazing. It’s a small resort (500 rooms) but it wasn’t a “party” resort and it wasn’t full of little kids either. It’s really close to the beach (no long walk like some resorts), there was 1 main pool and 1 kids pool on the other side of the resort. A really nice wedding chappel, 6-8 restaurants, 5 minute walk from a mall with Bubba Gumps, Margaritaville, Pat O’Briens, plus a bunch of little shops where we did most of our shopping. There was a bus stop right in front of the resort and you can catch it to go to a market or Walmart (we did!). There are also 2 other bigger malls 10 and 15 mins away. 25 mins from the airport.
Honestly it was an amazing trip. I’d go back tomorrow if I could.
They were doing some construction on the beach while we were there but I’d imagine they’re done by now or will be soon…

We are going on a RC Cruise in March 2010. I’m so excited! A somewhat short one, though…4 nights. We’re going on Navigator of the Seas that’s departing from Miami. Never been to Miami, so I’m exciting for that one!! May even get a hotel in Miami the night before so we can scope it out. CSI Miami is my FAVORITE show so now I get to see all the cool things I saw in the show 🙂 Haha – but we’re going to Cozumel on our cruise. Anyone ever been there?! I’m super excited!!
