    Hi everyone, what are you planning on doing after your wedding in the Dominican?

    Are you going to stay on the island and move to another resort or going to another Caribbean destination?

    I'm thinking of doing the latter - has anyone had any good or bad experiences taking a quick flight somewhere close for a honeymoon week? We'd have to come back to the DR to catch our flight home I think, so I'm not sure if this would be a great thing to do or just a baaad idea.

    What are your honey moon plans?

      We're just staying at our resort for 5 more days. But for our one year anniversary we are supposed to go hawaii which we are considering our honeymoon.

        We are still trying to decide what to do. Stay at the resort? Move to a new resort? Go to another part of the DR? But then my resort offers a free 4 day stay on our 1yr anniversary. I dont think its in our budget to go to another country, so thats out. What to do, what to do? Maybe I'll just let my FI decide.

        Too many choices!

          We're planning on doing a sort of honeymoon in Mexico the following year for our 1 yr anniversary when we go to my cousins wedding. We thought about staying an extra week and moving to another resort, but both of our Mom's are terrified of flying so we want to be travelling with them to and from the DR.

            We initially decided to move to a different resort but then decided to just stay at ours a few days longer after everyone else has left. We plan on going to Europe a few weeks later. But I do'nt really consider that a "honeymoon."
            I like all of your ideas about doing an anniversary honeymoon a year later. :)

                We are simply moving to anohter Punta Cana resort for a week. Too expensive to try to fly elsewhere IMHO.

                We are hoping to get to Dubai before the end of the year.

                    We are going to another island for our Honeymoon. We figured since we were already in the Caribbean, we might as well see another place!

                    We'll be going to Sandals Negril in Jamaica for 6 days after we leave Punta Cana.
