We are staying in Costa Rica even though it’s the wet season there.

Yeah we would have loved to go somewhere in the Caribbean too but Fiance didn’t want to take the chance since it is hurricane season.. 

So we are going to Hawaii for 3 weeks instead 🙂  I’m very excited.  We booked a few things but not a lot yet because prices are still high on airfare and hotels.  The deals haven’t come out for summer yet.

We are going to St. Lucia and staying at an all-inclusive. Yes it’s hurricane season but I don’t care, I know we’ll have fun either way 🙂

Cruise to the Caribbean.  I always cruise during that time because it’s cheaper.  I just buy the travel insurance. Last year we left right before the hurricane hit our area and arrived in San Juan the day before our cruise left. It was stressful week before with flight changes and whatnot but we pulled it off. We’re going to leave the week after our wedding and hopefully spend a few days in our port of departure city beforehand.

We were going to honeymoon in the Florida Keys but after Future Sister-In-Law announced her May 2013 destination wedding in the Carribbean we decided to go to Ireland instead.  I started reserving B&B’s and hotels this weekend, it was a little scary!

We booked our honeymoon at the beginning of this month! We’re going to Hawaii for 8 days! We originally wanted to do the Caribbean, but we just couldn’t risk it with hurricane season. Now I can’t imagine going anywhere else but Hawaii… it looks so amazing!

We are going to Riviera Maya in Mexico!! It is a beautiful place as well as our resort! It is still on the Caribbean Sea as well so you are getting those crystal clear blue waters. At first we didn’t want to do Mexico because both of us have been there and with the safety, however when we found this we loved it, and it was within our budget. Our travel agent said that it is safe in that part of Mexico. Our honeymoon is August 7 we leave. So if you want to add it on your “honeymoon ideas” list I would!!

Oh and all you brides going to Hawaii….you will LOVE IT!! My uncle lives there and I have been there a lot and you will never want to come home!!!!!!!!

If you’re concerned about hurrican season, you could travel outside of that area. The islands of Hawaii and Bermuda are both beautiful destinations.

@StephyD216:  Where in Hawaii are you going?  Maui?  Oahu?

Barbados is good if you’re worried about hurricanes, it never gets hit.  My Fiance lives there, so trust me.  i mean yeah it’s still the wet season, but that’s the same anywhere.  And Barbados is beautiful.
