Where to go on my honeymoon

Recommended Posts

yep. we are staying on ambergris caye. we hired a private car service to pick us up at our hotel in playa del carmen and drive us across the border to corazal, belize. from there we are taking a small puddle jumper plane to san pedro (the town in ambergris caye). the whole trip will take about 5-6 hours but we are leaving mexico at 8am. no real direct flights exist from cancun to belize city, so hiring a car is best. we're pretty excited to just relax and watch the mexico countryside and stop in small towns along the way- it's an experience that i don't think many tourists get to do.

 

ambergris caye really has a wide range of hotel choices. they are serious luxury hotels and also smaller b&b type places. we went for a hotel in the middle range right outside the town but it's in walking distance to everything. i use the word "town" pretty loosely. there are only dirt roads and just a handful of cars.

 

coming from the riviera maya i think that belize is one of the most feasible and economic choices, but i'm sure other places would work also.

Kathi - i did not read the comments but i immediately voted for BoraBora - it is a once in a lifetime destination, perfect for honeymooners and the Euro is so strong right now going to Europe is super, duper expensive!

Alyssa makes an excellent point - the dollar is worth beans in Europe. You migth consider a place like south america where your $$ migth go further. And you're closer to SA too meaning less time on a plane.

That's awesome that you get another fabulous trip after your wedding. It also migth be a good idea to "unwind" if you are going right after the wedding.

I voted for Greece but I'm torn between there and Bora Bora. I was in Venice and Paris in August 2007. Both are beautiful but I was tired because both cities required a lot of walking and site seeing. I think Greece and Bora Bora would give you and your new hubbie more time to enjoy each other and at the same time go somewhere cultural. Also, Venice is pretty small... I think after a few days you'd be ready to go somewhere else. Oh, and there lots of mosquitos in Venice due to the canals. I got bit like I was the only human there.

For a honeymoon, so somewhere low key and romantic. I love London, Paris, Rome, Florence, Venice... all of the cities.

 

But for a honeymoon go with a beach. Go to Bora Bora. Or Thailand.

 

Do the others on another trip. Honeymoons should be calm, waking late, nothing to do but hang out together... when you go to a busy city, you have an agenda, stuff to see...

yes, I totally agree.

I'm doing an orbitz search for bora bora right now. it's quite the flight from north carolina. looks so amazing though. There are too many places on my list of places to see & the list just keeps getting longer.

someone mentioned before to avoid the huts on the water. they said they were full of bugs.

I'm all for Europe but as Alyssa said, it's extremely expensive with the way the Euro is right now.. I believe you get 700E for $1000..

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
