the resort we stayed at in Jamaica, Couples, offered a lot of “free” activities like wind surfing, etc, that would be good for adventuresome types.. I forget all of the activiies, but there were considerably more than the last all inclusive we stayed at, even paying a fee.  Couples truly is all inclusive.  PM me with questions or check out their site! i was at the Couples Negril.  There are 2 or 3 others.

I was thinking the same thing as Melissabegins!  An all inclusive would give you lots of options for doing stuff or doing nothing.  And most of them do have some sailing options.

Sounds like you all are definately going to have to compromise! Are you set on going out of the US for it, or have you thought of taking a road trip to places in the states that you both haven’t been to & would like to see? That might be fun and could keep costs lower, maybe?

I don’t know, but he definately needs to understand your need for “down” time after the wedding. Planning is hard work!

stay at a beach but do one full day of sailing…my sister gets very motion sick, and she found that bonine works better than dramamine for her, or you can get those 24 hr prescription ear patches.  They will make you groggy, though!

We have agreed to disagree on everything honeymoon related. I’ve exhausted myself by presenting endless options to Fiance and he’s rejected everything I’ve come up with. I then ask him to suggest something and he shuts down. So I assume we’ll end up booking a hotel room in NYC a few days before the wedding that will count as our ‘honeymoon’.

Have you ever thought about a cruise?  There is a lot of down time during the “sea days” and you can have “adventures” on days in port.  Also, I get motion sickness too sometimes and was completely fine on a cruise ship.  It’s like a little city on the ocean!

I was so prepared to assist.  But I continued reading and I think you’re right, he might be impossible.  It may just come down to putting a few ‘tolerable’ idea in a hat and picking from it!  Lol.  Jeez, good luck, let us know what you choose. 

PS.  For the record, I think choosing 1 country in Europe would be ideal.  Like Spain.  Where you’ll both get adventure, alcohol, museums… and culture.  I wish we’d chosen Europe!

Visit an eco-lodge! It can be the perfect combination of “roughing-it” and relaxation. We went to this place last year and it was fantastic (http://www.junglebaydominica.com/)! We were able to go do adventorous day hikes/water sports, but then head back to the spa in the evennings. I think it could work for you guys. And since it’s off the beaten path (ie not a Sandals type resort) a bit your Fiance might be more easily convinced!

We also visited this eco-lodge last year in Ecaudor: http://www.ecuadorcloudforest.com/index.html but it might be a bit too out there for you, but still worth checking it out.

good luck!

What about the Greek Islands? It’s a great combination of beaches, culture, great food, good people watching, and relaxation. And there are plenty of boats and ferrys to sail around the islands.

I think another great option for you may be Costa Rica.

Good luck!

I second Bliss Honeymoons – Costa Rica could be perfect, same with Nicaragua. 

 

I was also going to suggest something like Vancouver or Banff. Get a really cozy spot in a cabin where you can do lots of front porch lounging with wine, but also have options for hikes and kayak. In Vancouver you’d also have some city stuff to do as well!
