    We can't decide. We'll be in PV for a week for our wedding but want to spend the following week on our honeymoon. Originally we wanted to go to Belize or Costa Rica but they were more expensive and took longer to get to. For those of you that got married in PV or Mexico, where did you/will you go on your honeymoon? I was looking at Dreams in Cabo.....

      we are heading up north to Punta Mita and staying at Brisas de Mita. We originally thought Costa Rica also but the logistics were silly and exhausting.

        We married in PV and honeymooned in Ocho Rios, JA. For us the travel was worth it to get out of Mexico and separate the wedding from the honeymoon. I don't know much about Dreams Cabo but there is a lot of info here about it.

        If you don't want to go too far you can always head up or down the coast. Costa Alegre and Manzanillo are south of PV and gorgeous places with great resorts. I think Manzanillo is about 4 hours by land (you could also fly).

        Even closer to PV are the resorts of Majahuitas and Verana which look spectacular and are very secluded so you'll feel far away:

          We are heading to the Grand Velas Vallarta in Nuevo Vallarta for 5 days. We considered flying out to the RM, however, we are meeting up with my family in Guadalajara so we wanted to save money on flights and decided to stay in the Vallarta area. However, the GVV looks amazing, and I am so excited!

            We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

            We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

              We are planning on going to Bora Bora for our honeymoon. Since we are from NYC, it would cut 6 hours off the flight to leave straight from PV. We are saving the frequent flyer points and starwood points:) Check out le meridien, which is a starwood.com hotel.

              There are some great ways to collect travel points. We are hoping to not have to pay for our flights or our stay, just go off our points....

                THanks for all the advice. I think we've decided to stay in the vicinity of PV. The week of the wedding will be so busy I doubt we'll really have time to enjoy everything. We'll just move resorts and maybe explore some of the nearby areas.

                  My parents just got back from Dreams and absolutely RAVED about it...they upgraded to the Jacuzzi suite while they were there. They said the food was absolutely amazing, literally like a 5 star restaurant. Here in Calgary, meals like that would cost you 200.00 easy, they were so impressed, the presentation, the taste, the service, the wine, they even got flaming coffees at their table. Every night they left a 20.00 tip just because they were so impressed.
                  We are getting married in Jamaica, I wish my 5 star hotel of choice had food choices like this!! lol. But by the sounds of things it's a great choice.

                      This is a great thread, because we have been wondering where to go from PV too. We want to go somewhere, but it didnt seem like it was easy to get anywhere from PV, at least not cheaply.

                      If we go up or down the coast, is driving the best way? Has anyone just rented a car and taken a drive?
