Me and my FI are getting married October 21st. We’re planning on taking about 10 days for our honeymoon. He’d love to go somewhere warm where we could charter a boat for a few days (St. John, St. Bart’s) but I’m worried about the rainy/hurricane season and would prefer to go to Spain or Greece.
Did anyone else go on their honeymoon in late October or have a travel suggestion for that time of year?

Greece and Spain in late October are likely to be quite cool and potentially wet. Late October isn’t really the time to visit Europe. Google best places to visit in October and then look at what will suit your budget.

loz24 : I’ve done that extensively. South Greece is actually pretty temperate with way less rain than the rest of Europe that time of year and some rainy days wouldn’t bother us anyways. The same is true of the Canary Islands in Spain that time of year. I’d love any “out of the box suggestions” though! Any travel list I’ve looked at have had the same places listed. Also considered Thailand.

The worst month for hurricanes in the Caribbean is September, though October is somewhat risky. Check out Salvador, the capital city of the state of Bahia in Brazil. Great beaches, colorful historic center, lots of cultural events (the music scene is incredible), and the food is so very delicious.

I would suggest not going to St John or St Barts from Sept-Nov. I’ve made that mistake before (non honeymoon) and it was not very pleasant.
I vote Greece all the way! Its much more beautiful and romantic, in my opinion ❤

maabride : My husband and I went to Jamaica in mid-October (2015) and the weather was perfect! Only rained twice while we were there, a light afternoon shower one day and kinda hard one afternoon while we were out horseback riding, and not even the whole time. It’s always a gamble, though.

I went to the Caribbean in the heart of hurricane season and we had 7 perfect sunny days. It’s always a risk though. Trinidad & Tobego, Barbados, and Aruba are just outside of the hurricane belt of the Caribbean and are less likely to get take a direct hit. Sill somewhat of a risk but less likely. I’ve also heard good things about Thailand, as long as you stay out of the bad areas of the country. Also, Thailand is known (at least by people in my area) as being an extremely cheap place to visit once you’re in the country.
