The Dominican Republic, Bahamas, or Jamaica.  They are all offering really good deals right now.  (we’re doing the DR)

I think its your decision where you choose to go for your honeymoon. Travelling always involves a bit of danger. And while there may be some unrest in Mexico right now if you stick to resorts and tourist areas you should be fine. I think you and Fiance need to decide if you think its worth the risk and if you do then go for it. Your decision.

It really irritates me how closed minded we americans can be towards other countries.

If you look at the statistics, you will be fine. You’re more likely to die in gun violence in Texas than you are in Mexico, actually.

As someone who has traveled the world, and been to many many “torn” countries, it deeply saddens me when people write off entire countries because there is too much media attention on certain things.

Feel as though I should add, I have nothing against Mexico. I just happen to think the Bahamas is more fun.

We went to Cancun for our honeymoon and loved it.  We were perfectly safe.  We stuck mainly to our resort and the resort had outings to the clubs at night that would be perfectly safe since it’s with a group.

We’re planning on going back for our anniversary and couldn’t be happier.  If you want to go, go.  You’ll be fine and you’ll love it.

This is your honeymoon so the decision in the end is up to you. Mexico is a great honeymoon destination! It offers so much to do and see. Have you looked into the Riviera Maya area, this is a more couple friendly area south of Cancun. The great thing is that you wouldn’t be staying right in all the party areas of Cancun but you would be a short ride into Cancun if you want to go out for the night. Although I can tell you that the resorts in the Riviera Maya keep the party going into the night if you stay at the right ones.

As with any travel you have to use common sense and be aware of your surroundings. If you do those things travel to Mexico is like any other destination.

We have been back and forth a few times in the past 6 months and every trip is safe and fun!
