Thanks for updating this — fun!

We still have NO IDEA what we’re doing.   We’re going to crack down on the planning after Christmas.  I think Costa Rica is out, and we’re looking at the following ideas:

Anguilla/St. Maarten

Belize

St. Lucia

Antigua/Barbuda

Would love to hear what everyone else is doing :o)

We have no idea what to do! The Fiance doesn’t really like the typical beachy honeymoon, so I’ve been trying to research some cool places that we’d both like. Some possibilities on our list:

Vancouver, B.C.

Whidbey Island, Washington

Tofino, B.C.

Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Sedona, AZ

Santa Fe, New Mexico

We have also strongly been considering Mexico…but I am worried about going there in June/July.  I have read it’s just so hot, buggy, and humid.

I need some better ideas!

We decided to scrap the 14-day Mediterranean cruise and stay somewhat local (within New England).  We’re going to need a low key vacation to recoop.

We booked our trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  Our second choice was Hawaii, but I liked the look of the hotel better in Cabo and I didn’t really feel like flying all the way out to Hawaii.

We were going to go to Italy but with both of us in school it just isn’t practical for a few reasons.  I have never been to Europe and was a little disappointed that we would have to wait another year before we go and meet his family in Italy sooo….sweet Fiance booked 5 nights in Quebec City.  He had been told by a few people that Quebec city resembles Europe so he made reservations at the Le Clos Saint-Louis.  He got us the honeymoon package and I am soooo excited!

@Hotchild:  why did you scrap Costa Rica?  That has been our #1 for a long time, especially when our friends told us how much they enjoyed Recreo in September….but, we’re now reconsidering as well!!!

we are still going to costa rica!! yay! I am so excited! @mizrunzou I heard about Recreo.. nice to hear your friends had such a great experience there. They mentioned them on the Today Show, that is how we originally decided on Costa Rica.. Fiance saw it and said oh that’s nice and then I made him commit!! lol lol he doesn’t like to travel as much as I do so when he committed to Costa Rica I had to jump on the opportunity LOL LOL  Smile

@mizrunzou: A few reasons.  For one thing, it is their rainy season, and although I’ve heard conflicting opinions on how much/often it rains, I really don’t want to chance it.  Also, from what I’ve heard and what we gained from our research, it seems like it just takes a really long time to get everywhere via car.  I REALLY don’t like riding in cars, so this would kinda put a damper on our honeymoon.  Finally, we found out that you really can’t snorkel there and that’s something we really want to do!

So we definitely want to do it someday, but I don’t think it’s the best choice for our honeymoon.

We’re going to Saint Lucia. GORGEOUS island, great SCUBA, surprisingly affordable plane tickets. So excited!

 

I used to live in the Caribbean, and to those of you worried about the heat/mugginess…as long as you’re at a resort beach-side, the ocean breeze really makes it tolerable. When you’re inland is when it gets unbearable, but I plan on spending a lot of time by the beach (or in our room) during the Honeymoon =)
