UPDATE! I think we are going to be able to make ALASKA anyway!!! Although all the suggestions given by you Bees are great, for whatever reason we have Alaska in our hearts and minds, lol! We hope to be able to cut costs and stay for 8 or 10 days!!! Only a few of those days will be in a lodge, but we hope to have some awesome times anyway!!!
I wll let you know what ulitmately happens, I’m excited to find out myself!!

Costa Rica for sure! Look at Arenal/La Fortuna And the Cloud Forest area. This is the rainforest region (so not on the beach), offers a lot of activities, and has some great hotels. I loved The Springs. Maybe you could stay at a cheaper. Hotel the first few nights, and then stay some where fancy (like The Springs) at the end?

ITS ALASKA!!!! Thanks for all the awesome ideas, Bees!
We just booked our Alaska honeymoon after meting with the travel agent and finding the most affordable (in-budget) and reasonable (busy-wise) place to go. We had it narrowed down to Alaska and Scotland, Scotland of course being much more affordable once in-country. BUT, it came down to frequent flyer miles and the best deal (FREE! with mileage redemption!!) was Alaska!!
We will be doing a couple of day-cruises, a couple of nights in different wilderness lodges (love this idea for a romantic honeymoon, so remote and private!!) and a few nights on either side in Anchorage and Fairbanks. So Excited!!!!!!! :_)
