both are beautiful locations so it all depends on your budget.  mexico is going to be less expensive.

how long is your honeymoon?  do you want a 5 star resort?  take these into account.  you may be able to stay for 2 weeks in mexico for the same price as 1 week in st lucia.

also, do you like to go on excursions?  what do these locations have to offer?  i can’t speak for st lucia but i was just in cancun/mayan riviera/playa del carmen last week and did a lot of activities along that coast.

My husband and I went to St. Lucia on our honeymoon for 10 days, and we loved it! We stayed at the Grande St. Lucian (Sandals), which is one of three Sandals resorts on the island. There is a trolley that will take you back and forth between all of them, so you can try all the restaurants. All inclusive is totally the way to go–we even got to do scuba diving!

@2012Palomar:  I have been to Cancun and there are good + bad parts of it like any city,,, I would just say– be on your guard when in town and away from the resort.

As far as St. Lucia goes… I have never been but it was on out top 3 picks for out honeymoon so I looked into it  a lot and did a lot of reading up. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with it!  The Sandals there look beautiful, and I kind of wish we would’ve just bitten the bullet and gone, but I am happy we went with the cruise! 


Good luck choosing!

I’m wondering the same thing, but for a destination wedding. I am leaning toward Mexico because of the costs for guests, but I’ve also heard horror stories from brides that got terribly ill prior to or after the wedding from drinking or eating contaminated food. I know there is probably a small chance it could happen anywhere, but are there any resorts in Mexico you trust highly? And/or, any specific places in Mexico to avoid or focus on for this reason (e.g., Los Cabos, Playa Del Carmen, Cancun, Nuevo Vallarta). Thanks in advance for the help.
