Dear bees =))
We are currently planning our honeymoon and we want to have a nice tour between new York, Florida (orlando Disneyland) and Miami and then we either go to cancun or the Bahamas. My fiancÃ© wants to go to Vegas instead of new york but I guess we will be waisting a lot of time in planes rather than spending it in any of the destinations.

we went to cancun (playa del carmen) and absolutely loved it. It’s a great mix of beach and acitivity! There’s sooooo many things you can do in cancun – swimming with dolphines, exploring caves, cenotes, mayan ruins, jungle expeditions, lots of wild life to see etc… while still being able to enjoy beautiful white beaches and margaritas!

I’ve been to both – The Bahamas is more honeymoonish in my mind. In Cancun it smells awful because the center of the town is basically a sewage dump and you can’t stay in the water for long periods of time. I had a much better time the week I stayed in the Bahamas vs. the week I spent in Cancun.

i have also been to both.. and maybe its just where i stayed.. but BOTH places were amazing! in the bahamas i was at the Atlantis Resort so i was a bit spoiled and didnt leave the area much except to go snorkeling/grocery shopping.. it was gorgeous but after the waterpark and the shopping there isn’t a whole lot to do anymore (IMO).. and when we went to Cancun we did a lot more traveling around/sightseeing because there was only so much to do at our hotel.. so i think either place you go is going to be a great honeymoon.. it just depends what else you want to do (if anything!) while you are there

I think they’d both be great but I’d choose Bahamas probably. It just seems more honeymoon-ish to me.

I think Cancun is gross and really only enjoyed by those looking for the Spring Break experience. Just ick.
That being said, Talum (1.5 hours south of Cancun) is gorgeous and affordable. But Bahamas is lovely if you want a more known destination.

I wouldn’t stay directly in Cancun but I would stay somewhere in the Yucatan (the big issues are localized on the west coast). Nor do I think Cancun is gross, its just a lot busier and you might run into the typical idiots taking a senior trip in June. Like PP said Tulum is great. Also the town of Puerto Aventuras is quite small and actually totally gated. Mexico is much more appealing and offers more than the Bahamas. But if your not the adventurous/do excursions type, then Bahamas would probably suit you.

I absolutely would not go to Cancun. Kidnapping of American tourists is on the rise and with the problems that the country is having with drug trafficking and murders, I don’t think it is worth the risk.
I did a cruise to the Bahamas. It was absolutely beautiful. Vegas and New York will be expensive.

I’m going to the Bahamas for my honeymoon so I might lean that way because of that but I love NYC too! =D
