    I plan to go someday. I made it to Israel and Italy, but didn’t have time to hit up Greece as well.

    I want to go to Greece so bad! But $3800 doesn’t seem high enough…every time i price it out, it comes out to be around $7,000. Which is not in the budget for us right now. The DR is lovely; you just have to pick the right hotel.

    Greece for sure! I’m from Turkey who’s a neighbor of Greece. The Mediterranean and Agean are SO much more beautiful than the Caribbean and Mexico. Awesome water, beaches, food, culture…I wouldn’t even worry about the getting hit on thing. Won’t happen anymore than it would happen in any Latin country. Actually now that I think about it in all my travels I got hit on the most in Italy.

    Hands down, Greece.

    Mexico is pretty easy to get to, as is the DR (which I personally didn’t like btw), so definitely go for the trip that goes all out.

    Greece!  We want to go to Rhodes (my husband has been, and he says it’s amazing.)  We went to Curacao for our honeymoon – was a bit less, and we had a lot of fun.

    While I would say Greece of course because its my favorite place in the world. 9 days is SOO Short. Flights there take over a day and then back. So basically you get a week there. That is not enough time in Greece at all. I would rather take a cheaper honeymoon and save up for a MINIMUM two week trip to Greece in the future. Especially if you are doing island hoping you will spend most time on the fairies and won’t get to see much. Lots of traveling around is stressful and not so romantic. So for those reasons I choose Dominican Republic where you can have a romantic honeymoon and choose greek isles when you can afford a longer trip.

    GREECE!  I wanted to go to Greece if we were leaving the states, but my Fiance didn’t want to go to Europe.  I went once in college – it is SOOOO worth it!  Though I agree with some previous posters – I wouldn’t want to island hop in a 9 day span.  Maybe three hotels, max, but that’s my tastes.

    I heard the Dominican Republic is amazing! But so is Greece, so I guess it depends on what you want to spend. Plus, if you take off work, are those paid days or not? The Greece trip could end up costing way more than you thought. I am biased because I like all-inclusive deals. 🙂

    Greece is phenomenal, and $3800 is a steal. Do it.
