So originally the Fiance and I were planning on taking our honeymoon to the same place we’ve always gone to in Florida, just to keep it simple. However, after talking with each other more, and getting input from family and friends, we’ve decided we should take a trip to somewhere we’ve never been.
Weather. Obviously, October is a transitional time for many places in regards to weather. Priorities. I want adventure, he wants relaxation. I’d prefer to go somewhere more exotic, that has historical/cultural landmarks, and with fun outdoor activities. He is willing to partake in the excursions, but still wants a relaxing feel for at least the end portion of our trip.
Top Choices as of Now:
We are both very, very into the idea of a Canadian Rockies honeymoon. We both love the outdoors, hiking, and WILDLIFE! We also don’t mind the cooler weather. Our plan would be to start in Vancouver, and work our way to Alberta, or vice-versa. However, after checking weather, it sounds like October, especially the end, is very risky in regards to what activities and attractions will be available. The other front-runner is a completely different scene: Brazil, with the intention of spending a few nights in Rio de Janeiro, then heading over to Iguazu Falls, and spending the last couple nights at a more secluded resort. I’ve also seen posts suggesting to spend a night or two in Sao Paulo if possible as well. I’d LOVE to hear feedback from anyone who has been to these areas. Recommedations will be MUCH appreciated.
Other Obvious Options:
Of course Hawaii is beautiful all year, and from what I’ve read, October is their off-season so we could possibly get a break on rates. Tahiti/Bora Bora, Fiji, and Cabo San Lucas are also options. However, I really would like to have some unique activities to do, and some variation in landscape. I’ve heard with French Polynesia, it is a perfect place if you just want to lounge, not the greatest for active couples.
Anyhoo! Sorry for the novel! ANY suggestions will be very much appreciated. Especially anyone with feedback for BC/Alberta and Brazil.
Thanks Bees! 🙂
