Your dream honeymoon

Recommended Posts

I'll be honest with you, if we were not getting married in Cabo I would have never been on my list of places to honeymoon. It was the perfect place for us to get married though... since it had the beach, resorts and lots of activities for everybody. I'm pretty lucky that my FI has accepted the fact that I like to travel a lot, and that part of our budget goes towards traveling every year. So every year we take some pretty nice vacations. Our honeymoon was really just about relaxing for us, so we opted to stay in Cabo right after the wedding.

 

If we weren't staying in Cabo for the honeymoon, here are some suggestions of where I would have suggested we would go:

 

Some island or city on the Mediterranean? That way you get the culture and a beach vacation!

My suggestions: Start in Barcelona then go to Mallorca, Spain.

Start in Paris and then go to Nice, France.

Start in Rome and then go to Venice, Italy. (Venice is the most romantic city I've ever been to!)

 

I would also probably have Kauai, Hawaii as a top spot and definitely stay at the Hyatt there. I saw that you have a link to it on your Hawaii posts. That hotel is truly incredible! I went a few years ago on a family vacation.

 

Some friends of ours just came back from the Greek Islands and they loved it!

I would LOVE to go to Europe, but that won't be in the budget unless we wait awhile. FI wants to go to Hawaii, so now we're just trying to decide if we want to go there directly from Cabo, or wait and go a few months later.

Gosh their are so many places I would love to go.. Alaska, Europe, France, Italy, Japan, I'd also LOVE to go to Hawaii again. We make a point to do a summer vacation every other year and on the off years we do a winter vacation (snowboarding trip) so after Cabo it will be a couple years before we do another summer vacation. Man why won't Ed McMan knock on my door.. (does he even still do that)

Tammy,

It sounds to me like you sort of have narrowed it down. All of those places sound awesome! I would love to go to a hotel that has the over the water bungalows. That looks so cool!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
