        I live in NYC too, and I found this map very helpful: 



        It tells you which Caribbean destinations you can get to non-stop.  The easiest to get to on your list would be Punta Cana, DR and Montego Bay, Jamaica.  My fiancĀ© and I were looking at hotels in both those locations and almost booked at Half Moon Bay in Jamaica, but we ended up in the Riviera Maya of Mexico instead.  If you're trying to keep costs low, I would say skip St. Thomas and St. John's, as they are both very pricey.  Both DR and Jamaica are very cost effective.  Good luck!

          I am in the same boat! 2014 bride from NYC - looking for all inclusive adults only- stayed at secrets st James in Montego Bay Jamaica before and loved it but they had no privacy for wedding ceremony and reception.. If I could have something similar I would be set!! If anyone has any advice please let me know :) thanks!

              We're hoping to get married in April 2014 in Antigua. We were wondering if there is anyone with any recommendations on the best places to get married. Sandals doesn't really appeal as it seems a bit like a conveyor belt, however we could be wrong. Any views would be greatly appreciated!
