Hello ladies! My fiance and I would like to start hunting for a perfect honeymoon. Ideally, we’d like to head somewhere tropical and all-inclusive…. But what do we need to consider weather-wise? I’ve heard there are certain regions that are more prone to harsh fall storms.

We are leaving for our honeymoon on September 2 for three and a half weeks! The Caribbean will be in hurricane season and Asia will be in monsoon season. We had thought about going to Thailand for our September honeymoon (it’s cheaper given the rainy season) but didn’t want to risk it, no matter how low the rate! We finally ended up deciding to go to Australia, New Zealand and the Cook Islands. While not exactly the "exotic" honeymoon I had dreamed of, I am definately looking forward to it. According to the weather.com the avg temperature in the Cook Islands is between 66 and 77 degrees fahrenheit.
Also, I know that there are vacation packages for several of the islands in the area: Fiji, Tahiti, Samoa, Vanuatu, and the Cook’s. It depends on what your budget is and what you are exactly looking for.

We’re going to Costa Rica for our honeymoon in October because we wanted all inclusives, beach, and wanted to avoid hurricane season. We booked through Liberty Travel and they have lots of places to choose from. Good luck!

We are going to an island off of Zanzibar in September and its the high season so it should be fine weather wise, but I don’t know if you want to go as far as Africa (its a good time for Safari too if that helps at all….).

Argentina is beautiful (it’s Spring there!). It’s supposed to be the rainy season in Costa Rica…

We’re going to Jamaica for 12 nights at the end of September into early October. It is technically hurricane season, but I read so much on the topic, and people make some good points, the Caribbean is SO vast, and all the islands are SO tiny in comparison, that the chances of there actually being a hurricane during the time you’re there are slim, and the chances of that hurricane hitting the island you’re on are even slimmer. Apparently, the elders in Jamaica talk about events in their lifetime happening before or after "the storm" because there has only been one to take note of in their lifetime. We also opted for the trip insurance so we’re prepared. Although, the west coast of Mexico doesn’t get hurricanes. But definitely get the trip insurance no matter where you go! Good luck!!

We got married 9/6/08 and went to Cozumel, Mexico from 9/6 to 9/12. We booked the Sabor Wyndham but got upgraded to the new Aura, which is what I had hoped would happen. The hotel was absolutely beautiful, we had a swim up suite which we loved! It was all-inclusive and had no problems with getting food or drinks whenever we needed. The 24 hour room service was great, we ordered something every night. It was off season so not all the restaurants were open but it wasn’t crowded either. The only downside was that we felt the effects of the incoming hurricane that was heading towards Texas and alot of the water sports and activities were cancelled. My husband was hesitant about even going to Mexico but he is sl glad we did. He enjoyed it as much as I did. We definitely want to go back sometime with friends. The hotel was a little over $1000 and we used my dad’s airline miles for our flight so that helped out alot. We spent a little over $400 just for tipping, taxis and souveniers.

Try Puerto Vallarta Mexico. It’s on the west coast so it’s not affected by hurricanes in September.
