We are thinking dominican republic, virgin islands, or jamaica?? Any opinions?
* Cost (room and airfare)
* All-Inclusive or Not
* Proximity to Airport
* Activities in and around the destination you choose
* Kid-Friendly or Adults Only
* Sandy beach or rocky/snorkel beach
* Wedding Package options (of course!)
If it is basically just you and groomie, then it really might not matter too much. But if you are wanting a larger crowd, you might want to consider some of the above.
You could always do a sample search on something like funjet.com to see basic airfare/room rates. Then you can check tripadvisor to see the reviews. You don't want to end up in a dump
Everyone will have their preferences. I am partial to the Riviera Maya, I love it! I've been to Jamaica & the USVI & BVIs. I would love to visit the Dominican Repub. but the airfare always seems so high so we've never made it there. Good luck and happy planning!
