      If you go right after Mexico, I would look at some place in South or Central America. Costa Rica is very relaxing but they also have a focus on eco-tourism so there are active things to do like hiking, etc. I haven't been but a friend went for her honeymoon and loved it. Belize is also beautiful and the dollar goes pretty far.

      Next year, DH and I are going to Greece, so I think you should just wait and you can tag along with us! LOL I have a client with a second home there who has offered it up. I need to check and see how serious he was about letting us use the house.

      My understanding is that Bora Bora is very expensive and I know I would want to stay there for two weeks or more since it takes a while to get there. That might be better saved for a later vacation.

          Look at Erin, being all practical! All the rest of us beach bum dreamers still vote Bora Bora, though. (But did you notice how no one's actually BEEN there?)

            I completely agree. If we took a seperate honeymoon it would have been to Belize or Costa Rica.

            Before I go somewhere I want to have time to research it extensively. It took so much time to plan out our trip last year to london, paris, & normandy. I wouldn't have been able to plan both the wedding & that trip. But, then not everyone likes to be as prepared as me. I just felt like it helped us get the most out of our time there & not run in to any unexpected expenses.

            So I personally would not want to have the honeymoon be the dream trip. I'd rather save that for another year when I have time to really plan it right.

              Kat, it kind of also depends of what you want to do, do you want to relax? or do you want to visit different sites and learn about history? If you go to Europe (I wouldn't recommend London for a honeymoon) you'll have to be on the go all the time because you'll want to see everything (Venice is stunning, but I would go to Rome and Florence). I've been to the South Pacific and it was spectacular! Bora Bora was my favorite of the islands. We stayed at Le Meridien and it was out of this world, I like the location which is on one of the Motus. Motus are a group of islands that surround the main island. Le Meridien and all of the resorts on the Motus provide water taxi transportation to the island. Also, Le Meridien is right next to the St. Regis which looks absolutely devine! They have all overwater bungalows with their own private pools.

              I would recommend if you visit other islands besides Bora Bora, I also went to Moorea and didn't really like it. I recommend Roatonga.

              I hope this helps, it's absolutely gorgeous there and you will have a very awesome and relaxing honeymoon.

                Tough choices here, but I voted for Greece!
