What’s your budget and where do you live

Word of caution: we were looking for something similar and ended up avoiding the Carribean because it will be hurricane season (we’re also honeymooning in early October). From your criteria (ziplining, dolphins) I immediately thought Carribean, but you might want to look into Hawaii or western Mexico.

For budget honeymoons, cruises are great and a lot of them have a private island that offers stuff like ziplining and swimming with animals.

@Jennifer Rae:  i agree with kristengotmarried.  you can get an all-inclusive for less than $1000 per person including flight and taxes.  if you wait until the end of october or beginning of november, the hurricane season will be over. 

as for the adventure side of things, i have been to a lot of carribean islands and found the riviera maya to have the most variety and options.  check out this site: http://www.viator.com/Cancun/d631-ttd

We just did Costa Rica for 6 days for around $2200 (not including food, drinks, excursions, etc) when we got there.  We went through Jet Blue vacations and flew out of NYC.  They have a good combination of beach and activities.

You could definitely get a good deal in the Caribbean in October because it’s hurricane season.  But you take the risk of a storm, unfortunately.

Me too! Be careful of Caribbean in October though – my sister honeymooned in Jamaica in October and the weather was a disaster!  I think Aruba is generally outside the hurricane belt – not sure about Punta Cana, but it is much less expensive, as is Mexico.  Also, check out Panama – not your run of the mill honeymoon spot but it’s gorgeous and cheaper than some other destinations

Have you considered Living Social Escapes? (http://www.livingsocial.com/)


Every week they offer a slew of different vacationing opportunities, often with embellishments like $50 towards spa treatments, dinner and drinks included in the price. SO and I have had a few champagne vacations on our boxed wine budget.
