Getting to Hawaii seems to be the most expensive part. We’re going to try to go there — maybe you could get some good deals since you’re planning at the last minute? I’d try a travel agent.

Some other options include Aruba, the Yucatan in Mexico (although there’s a hurricane risk there), and Belize.

I’ve been to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. I LOVED it there. I think if you do research it can be fairly inexpensive to rent a hotel for a couple of days. I dont have much information to provide — but, I do know that when I was there I told myself it would be a beautiful place for a honeymoon. Many activities and nice restaurants. Check it out! 🙂

We wanted to veg at a beach too, and decided on St. Lucia, which we booked through Sandals because it’s all-inclusive and we wouldn’t have to worry about a lot of little details.

Since your honeymoon is coming up pretty soon, you might be able to get a good deal with a lot of resorts that offer specials requiring you to book for travel within the next couple of months (I think sandals is doing that right now). See it’s not so bad after all! good luck!

We’re getting married the last weekend in September and we’re heading to Aruba.  It’s below the hurricane path so we’re pretty confident we’ll have great weather. Everyone we’ve talked to about Aruba seems to love it!

Plus, Aruba’s a lot closer (much shorter flight) than Hawaii so you won’t have to worry about being on a plane for two full days!  Good luck!

We are going to Hawaii on November 3rd for 12 days so a little later than you but we used miles for our flights and the honeymoon actually was not as expensive as I thought it would be.  It really depends on where you stay.

We went to Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean.  I know you are worried about weather – but it would be worth looking into because they brag that they haven’t been hit by any hurricanes in something like 30 or 40 years.  It was awesome!

A girlfriend of mine and her fiance took a vacation recently to the Mexican Mayan Rivera. They got a great deal on an all-inclusive package and had a wonderful time! I am totally jealous of their pictures. You should check it out.

We’re going to Jamaica (Couples Swept Away) for 12 nights from September 29th through October 11th. It is 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!!

NatiSylv: you’re going to LOVE St. Lucia and sandals there.  there are actually 3 sandals resorts on the island and you get to us all 3 if you want and there is a shuttle that takes you to all of them.  I stayed at St. Lucia Grand a few years back and it was the best vacation I’ve had.  have fun!!!

You can probably find great deals to Hawaii right now as well.  All of the hotels and travel agencies are trying to bring in visitors. Go to any of the booking engines and look at their packages (even airline sites put together packages). The downfall to Hawaii is they don’t do all inclusives- so if you are looking to veg out at your hotel with great scenery and not have to worry about your bar bill or food bills all inclusives are your best bet.
