Hurricane honeymoon?

What to do, what to do.  Since we got engaged in October, we've planned to go to Hawaii for our honeymoon.  Neither of us has ever been, and it seems to have a nice balance of fun, adventurous activities and beautiful beaches and pools for relaxing.  How could you go wrong?  Well, it's expensive.  At at least $800 per flight, we'd be spending a pretty penny.  

And so we decided to expand our horizons and look into all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean.  If there's one thing I've heard that is a honeymooner's best friend it's an all-inclusive resort.  Tulum, St. Lucia, Barbados, Martinique, Costa what?  There are too many to choose from!  Well, that decision got a little bit easier when we discovered that November is the last month of hurricane season.  

So now we have a choice.  Southern Caribbean or Mexico (somehow that is listed as a safe destination for November).  Or should we scrap our budget and head to Hawaii, Europe, or Australia?  Does anyone have suggestions?


  1. I'm a corporate meetings and incentives planner so I see a lot of resorts, hotels, etc. $800 per flight for Hawaii is a steal! :) But, still expensive nonetheless.

    Look at all three of them look phenomenal. I have not been but am currently proposing them to a client for their incentive program. I think the DR Punta Cana one looks exceptionally beautiful with the gorgous beach! Another great one is Secrets Maroma Beach in Riviera Maya. I would avoid Cancun. Stick with Riviera Maya.

    Grand Velas is another higher end all-inclusive option and I know the one in Puerto Vallarta is beautiful! The Riviera Maya one is new.

    Good luck!

  2. Eek, I hate spelling errors- I mean GORGEOUS beach :)
