We have decided on going to Peurto Vallarta for our honeymoon. A family friend is giving us a week at his condo as a wedding gift! PV is gorgeous and very romantic. They are some great restaurants, too. I recommend the Red Cabbage and Hacienda San Angel. Oh….and the canopy zip line tour is fun!!!!
@fizicsGirl—I spent my 30th in PV, too!!!

My sister and bil went a year and a half ago to the Fairmont Mayakoba on the Yucutan Peninsula. It is GORGEOUS there and they had a fabulous time! The week before they got there, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were anniversary celebrating also!
I’d recommend that place also. I would stay away (just an opinion) from any resort where you can drive from the border easily to get to or one where there’s been alot of drug cartel activity. So far the Mayan Corridor and Yucutan Peninsula area seems very safe.
We were going to go to either the Fairmont or to Secrets maroma earlier this year but changed plans after T’s friend who works in govn’t told us to reconsider a destination due to the sitch w/the cartels.
Just being honest.
Always make sure no matter where your destination is, if it is outside the US, check the state department’s site and see if there are travel warnings for the area/country you’re wanting to visit.
