I am a sucker for the Cancun/Riviera Maya area. Thats part of the reason we are getting married there 😀

But we always have a blast and we always feel safe, so thats my vote!

I love the caribbean – The virgin islands, St. Martin, and the Bahamas are all beauitful! I have also heard that Turks & Caicos are pretty amazing as well. I grew up in Florida so the caribbean is an easily accessible place for us in the summer time but I would recommend it to anyone!

I’d pick a caribbean island.  Mexico just doesnt sound like you could do much except for stay on the resort and whatever activities they have there cause I keep hearing people say that leaving it would be unsafe.  (I dont know how accurate that is thought, just my impression) But around the caribbean, you could do more exploration and not be locked down to tourist traps and maybe do more.  I went to USVI and loved it.

St Maarten or St Thomas! They are amazing and free from all the scary things happening in Mexico these days

I love the yucatan peninsula (Riviera Maya, Playa del Carmen, Cancun) area. I have spent a lot of time in Mexico traveling and studying and recent went to Playa and have always felt totally safe. And there is so much to do, there are so many cool day trips and excursions if you want adventure and culture and there are a lot of wonderful beaches, food, and drink. The people are friendly and are used to tourists. I would recommend that area without any reservations!

@petitfour:  Where are you having your wedding/staying? I’ve been up to my neck in resort information and just keep getting more and more confused. I’ve never been to Mexico.

I would go to the Caribbean. I have been to Mexico, Grand Cayman, and Jamacia. Out of the three my top would be Grand Cayman. We just booked our honeymoon for April 2013 to St. Lucia! I say Caribbean!
