@ColoroftheSky:  You can absolutely have a great Caribbean honeymoon for that price. You won’t be able to be super picky, but there are great resorts in Dominican and Cuba that I’ve been to for less than $1500/couple.

You need to check out sites like Cheap Caribbean, Sell Off Vacations, Expedia, etc. If you don’t mind booking last minute, you will get an even better deal. That could even add to the fun. You will know you’re going away, but you won’t know where.

I promise, a deal will come up. You will absolutely get to go somewhere, lol.

I don’t think Americans can go to Cuba, unless you’re flying in from Canada or Mexico…

But I agree, you should still be able to have a Carribbean honeymoon for $1,500, especially Mexico, I would think the flights would be reasonable-or no worse than from Boston? Might only be 5 days though.

Also, check Groupon Getaways, they always have crazy good vacations to the Carribbean for cheap!

@ColoroftheSky:  I second the Groupon Getaways comment! We used a Groupon for our Costa Rica honeymoon. 7 nights in an oceanfront hotel was $400!

@kmarie719:  Oh right, I forgot Americans don’t go to Cuba. What a shame. It’s so cheap!

What about Chicago? Bike rides along the water, history, architecture, good food?

My FH suggested Mackinac Island, MI, it’s kind of an older charm, carriage rides, boating, bike rides. You could look into that if that’s something you’re into to.

@BoxerLady:  The resorts look gorgeous there too! I think to go there though, you’d have to have an individual flight to another country (not just a connection), and would probably be hassled on return through customs as well.

@ColoroftheSky:  The point of US travel to Cuba being limited is so that we don’t support the Cuban economy…b/c ideaologically our government doesn’t agree with they way they structure theirs.  That said, Americans can go but only with special educational tours or something and they’re all expensive.

I second the Chicago suggestion for your honeymoon.  You could visit museums, go to a show or two, go to the beach and ride bikes along the lake shore!  To save money on hotels, I usually bid on them on Priceline or check out Living Social.

We went to Las Vegas for a week, flying out of the Midwest for about that much! It was really fun! If you like the historic/outdoor type vacations, I would suggest renting a car and driving to the Hoover Dam or Grand Canyon, which are around 1 hr and 2hrs away. We also broke the time we were there up by staying a two different hotels. For the first 4 days, we stayed at a hotel that was away from the strip, up against the red rock mountains. Then for the rest of the time, we had a hotel right on the strip. It was great!
