We are risking it and heading to the Caribbean. I’d say that a cruise is probably your best bet!

Good luck.

The ABC islands are probably going to be the only place you’ll be somewhat guaranteed to miss hurricanes, I would imagine.

We chose Hawaii over the Caribbean for this very reason. FI’s aunt gave us her airmiles, but it would’ve come to just under $2K total for 2 roundtrips from PA.

We were suppose to go to Bahamas, but because of Hurricane Season we are going to Hawaii. Looks like Bahamas will have to be a anniversary trip. Would you consider Hawaii?  I’ve been to Hawaii 3 times  and never thought I would go for our honeymoon, but with the circumstances (and our honeymoon is free thanks to my bosses who have a condo in Hawaii) thats where we will be going. I do love the warm weather and water there, maybe you could look into that for a idea?

We were in the same situation( already booked our october honeymoon). From the research we did it looked like we would be save going to aruba, dominican republic (punta cana) or hawaii .

We chose punta cana. Let me know if you have any questions about PC. We just booked a month ago and I researched almost every hotel!

@Cheesy Potatoes:  My brother in law and his wife went for theirs, they had a lot of rain but said it was very pretty!

oh wanted to add–our budget was 4 k ( so the same as yours) and we spent less than that and  upgraded to a really nice 5 star adults only all inlcusive hotel in PC. We are going 7 nights.

We found aruba to be pricier than PC and Hawaii was not even in the budget when you factored in airfare (from east coast) and food and drink costs.

Hope that helps!

@redheadem:  Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao.  They typically do not get hurricanes.

Bermuda tends to be outside of the hurricane belt but it’s still tropical enough to where you can hang out at the beach all day. When we were there last October, we were told that they only get a hurricane every 8 years or so and they rarely do much damage. Short of a few showers on our last day, it was nice and sunny the whole time. We cruised in so I can’t really comment on cost but we are looking to go back and stay at a resort. It will cost us about $5k (including airfare) for the all inclusive resort that we’re eyeing. There are cheaper alternatives available, though, especially if you’re able to snatch up a groupon or snique away deal.
