    Honeymoon Ideas

    Looking for a place to go in January of 2013.

    Where can you get good deals? Is all inclusive the way to go?

    Someplace warm, but want a little more to do than just beaches. Like to hike, sight-see, get out and do things, ect. Maybe a little beach time.

    Was thinking Hawaii as a strong possibility, but know that can get pricey.

    This is all based on how much you want to spend.

    Not Sure, what can I expect? Was thinking maybe a 2-week trip. $4-$6K.

    Is that doable?

    Yep. If you got the money to spend, Hawaii is probably best for the interests you mentioned (hiking, beaches, sight-seeing). However, you can probably fly to PR (my preference) or another Caribbean island for half the price.

    In Hawaii.....No.

    Well, at least not in Maui. Have not been to any other islands. But flights will probably cost you $1200 alone.

    Oh for that, if you are adventurous, I love Costa Rica. Rent a jeep and go to remote areas.

    if not, Hawaii, cancun, are traditional warm tourist trap places that wives love.

    in the middle.... Puerto Vallarta, aculpoco, Puerto Rico, Vegas...


    you can do a lot for that.

    once the flight is done, you have 3 to 4 gs from there to work with.

    Costa Rica, Aruba, or Atlantic Casino in Bahamas. Maybe a cruise to Antartica.

    Puerto Rico. Nice place. Things to do. No passport required (US Territory).

    Well Maui, in my limited experience, is not $200/night. But if you found one that was, just flights and hotels put you at nearly $4500. So if you can spend $100/day for 2 weeks I guess you could stay in budget. Not sure about price of hotels on other islands.

    Re: Honeymoon Ideas

    If you are wanting a more active honeymoon, I would suggest Costa Rica.

    I went on my honeymoon in June to the Virgin Islands. Beautiful beaches, beautiful water and great people. Rented a condo for the week through VRBO.com. This does not sound like your type of honeymoon, but check out VRBO for some great rentals and great prices.

    Just remember, any trip south and/or west of mexico, and you will essentially lose two whole days due to travel.

    We spent four grand on a week in Key West. A ton to do there, but never went to the beach. Not much in the way of hiking, unless you count walking up and down Duvall.
