    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.

        I would pick Venice or just Italy in general. The pics I have seen are so pretty!

          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!
