We went to the Excellence Playa Mujeres also. Nice resort, but terrible weather the week we were there. They did not keep us well informed of the pending tropical strom, they would give no info on the weather or the newsletter would say cloudy and showers when really it was downpours and wind. The pool on the Roof Top Terrance was unusable because it was so cold.

We are on a tight budget so we decided to stay in the States and go to a B&B for a week. We’ll take our real honeymoon later in the year.

Monterey CA for two days and that was only at the request of both of our parents who really insisted we get away for a little bit. We were happy just staying at my place but I’m glad we went.

We’re trying to finalize our honeymoon plans to take full advantage of discounts and sales, so this thread would really help me out. The original plan was to go to Kauai since they ran a promo a little while ago and we thought to have 2 separate receptions, one in California and the other in Sweden. But for simplicity and our budget’s sake, we’ve concluded that having a wedding in one location would work best for us. Plus the Kauai promo is nowhere to be found – it ran for such a short period!
The plan is to go somewhere warm and cheap-ish. We’re impartial as to where, just as long as we can bum around on a beach for a few days. We’ll be going a short time after our wedding in Oct. Last time we checked around, the deals point to Mallorca, which sounds fabulous but I’d really like to go somewhere new for both of us (the Fi has gone there before). Love to hear all about your honeymoons and recommendations!

We did Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and Sedona, AZ. Some big city, wilderness, road trip, relaxing- it was a nice combination

@vitsippa- I would recommend any inclusive resort for your honeymoon. This way you wont have to spend a dime while your there and sometimes you can find some great deals! I would try Palace Resorts, they have special honeymoon packages. Good luck!
@Lees- HAAAAAAAAAAAAA! You crack me up wiht your CSI Miami talk. I can tell we are gonna get along GREAT on this Wedding Bee. : ) Cruises are so relaxing and beautiful. Have fun!

We’ll be spending a week and a half in Australia doing a Reef & Rainforest trip!!! Flights are booked but we’re still deciding on hotels. I def want to do one of those treehouse/hut deals in the the middle of the forest and possible a night out on a boat in the middle of the ocean right by the reef. Can’t wait!!!!

@twalila – Are you going to the Daintree? I was just there this summer and it was the coolest place I have ever seen in the world. I went out on the Rum Runner for snorkeling and stayed at the Daintree Beach House? I also did a nightwalk in the Rainforest. Really neat! Let me know if you want any info!

We’re going to South Africa for the World Cup. Even though it will be winter there (so no beaches!) we are super excited for a safari, some wine tours and to watch the USA win in soccer!
