Post Your Honeymoon Spot

Recommended Posts

Wow, I am going to hit up you girls for our first anniversary trip ideas!

 

Mike and I just got back Monday from our honeymoon in Lake Tahoe. We are lucky enough to travel a lot so we wanted someplace neither of us had been. October is definitely the off-season for that area but it was perfect. We stayed at the Hyatt in Incline Village and had a great couples massage at their spa. We also had the best meal at the Lone Eagle..great ambiance, views, wine and where I tried buffalo tenderloin for the first time. Yum. There are tons of little towns with quaint shops, restaurants and again awesome views of the lake and mountains anywhere you go. We rented a little Z300 and had the best time just driving down the winding tree lined roads and stopping to take tons of pictures. There are also great hiking trails and golf courses. I'll try to post some pics.

Ok, almost 6 months after my wedding, I am finally booking our honeymoon. Lots of fights about where we were going. Good way to start a marriage :). We compromised a bunch.

 

Taking a 3 night belated mini-moon to Sayulita in a couple wknds, staying at Haramara retreat (we don't do yoga, but it looked neat). Plan to surf and relax and check out the town.

 

Going to Costa Rica in January for real belated honeymoon.

6 nights in Mal Pais and Santa Teresa area - either 3 nights at Casa Chameleon ultra villa + 3 nights somewhere on the beach (Red Palm Villas unless someone can suggest somewhere cheaper yet still honeymoon worthy)

OR cut it down to 5 nights, and stay at Florblanca

Spending our time surfing.

And then an overnight river rafting trip staying in a river view bungalow at the Pacuare Jungle Lodge (surrounded by 2 nights in San Jose, suggestions welcome for cheap but nice spot).

 

Spending too much for Costa Rica I guess, but it is our honeymoon.

 

Compromise was that A) we'd go to French Polynesia (one of my choices) on a babymoon if I'm ever so lucky, since it doesn't require being active, or B) that we'd go to Bali or somewhere more exotic once we have enough frequent flyer miles for biz class, if I'm not so lucky in the near future w/all that.

 

Will report back on the 1st 2 trips. Any immediate recs regarding Costa Rica before I book tonight and send wire payments tomorrow are absolutely welcome!

We went for something completely different and spent a week in Disneyworld for our honeymoon. We stayed at Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter Resort, and had an AMAZING time. I had never been to Disneyworld before, and DH hadn't been since he was a kid, but I tell you, it was absolutely the most fun I have ever had (except for the wedding that is). It was great to feel like a kid for an entire week, and more than once I got teared up because it was just so magical. I know, cliche right, but really it was. Especially during the fireworks at night, just out of this world.

We are looking at getting married at Dreams Cabo and then probably spending a week at the One&Only Palmilla (also Cabo) for the honeymoon. Haven't booked anything yet but that is the current plan.

Alyssa, I pm'd you if you have a chance...

 

Lori, report back on Palmilla - I was looking into the place for a long wknd, before deciding on Haramara in Sayulita - but we'll probably go to Cabo at some point in the future (maybe in summer to take advantage of specials) and would love to hear your opinion!
