If you want something a bit exotic, in the Caribbean or Mexico, that’s not touristy, I would really recommend Zihuatanejo. It’s a tiny fishing village on the Pacific side of Mexico with great hotels and private beaches. You can wander around the town and take in the local culture. We’ve had several clients stay here that absolutely loved it.

The Riviera Maya region also allows for great resorts, but easy access to Playa, Cozumel, and more.

If you want the Caribbean, St Lucia is a good choice as well. It’s the kind of place where you can wander around the island and really enjoy the people and the culture.

We’re going to Costa Rica. We had many of the same requirements for a honeymoon spot as you. We’re staying at a beautiful resort but just miles away we can get to more local, non-touristy areas. Lots of cool jungle scenery, beautiful beaches, etc. I think it will be a mix of adventure and relaxation =)

We’ve rented a private island in Belize. It’s not as expensive as it sounds 😉 I didn’t want to stay in a huge resort and be with 28 other honeymooners and get forced into watching dinner shows. We wanted flexibility, privacy, and great food, so this suits the bill perfectly for us! I can hardly wait to go!

a friend of mine is big on Bonaire–it’s eco protected, not very populated, and of all the places she’s visited, says it’s her favorite.

The easiest answer is Puerto Rico, if you’ve never been.  Very easy plane, no customs or currency conversions – relatively inexpensive resorts that you never need to leave.  But then you can easily go to San Juan ruins/forts & old San Juan but you can also make excursions to other parts of the island that include caves, rainforests, etc.  I think it’s one of the closest/easiest exotic places for an American to go!

If you’re looking far-fetched – think Bora Bora / Tahiti / Fiji – all of the Polynesian islands speak English but definitely are exotic but luxurious and are very very far away from home 🙂

I second Belize!  It’s not exactly “exotic”… but its an English-speaking country, and very easy to get around.  Fiance and I went for 3 weeks last year in February and rented a car for the time we spent on the mainland.  They cayes were beautiful, although, not great beaches, but the best was the jungley areas close to the Guatelmalen border.
