Hi There! We are Sept 1, 2011 (soooo sooon!) and we are going to Fiji. I’m super excited. The honeymoon wasn’t cheap, and it takes about 17 hours to get there (from Colorado). My FH is planning most of the trip. My only requirements were: a beach, a cocktail, no tv, no internet.

I’ve heard some people had an affordable honeymoon in Costa Rica.

I’ve also heard the French Polynesian islands are fantastic.

Some areas in the Caribbean are more prone to hurricanes than others.  Hurricane season is officially June through November with the high time being September & October.  So we don’t recommend certain areas depending on the time of the honeymoon.  For example, Bahamas & the Caymans tend to get hit a lot with hurricanes around that time.  There are other islands like Aruba & St. Lucia that are technically located outside of the belt.  But wherever you decide to go, make sure you have cancel-for-any-reason trip insurance.  Believe it or not, but some insurance policies don’t cover cancellations for hurricanes b/c they’re considered an “act of God.”

I am a canuck so we found the best option for the money was CUBA!!!  I went there in 2007 from Sept 1 to the 16th in Cayo Coco and it really was an unbelievable time, less busy tho the resort restauruants closed down the second week because it was off season so only the buffet was open. I’m not sure but you might find that with most tropical destinations. Im going to Veradero in August with my hunni for 2 weeks(under 5Gs). A main reason for going back is that I really LOVED the cuban people! So open, warm and such an intellegent people. To work in a resort its 2 to 4 years schooling and they have to speak at least 4 languages. They have little to no warnings from the Canadian Travel Reports and Warnings site. cant effin wait to go back!!!!!!!

Anybody know about the bug situations in Aruba, St. Lucia, and Costa Rica? I’ve heard that St. Lucia has a lot of bugs as it is rainforest, and I am guessing that Costa Rica is therefore pretty similar. I’ve heard Aruba is less of a problem because of it being a desert. However, has anyone else heard this, or have first-hand experience with it?
