honeymoon july28-aug9. Is this a bad time to go?

Jump to last reply

We are in our mid- forties and are planning our honeymoon during dates july 28-aug9. This will be our first time outside of Canada. Am looking for budget friendly , romantic all inclusive( can they be combined?) location. I've noticed other forums mention Jamaica,Dominican Republic, Cozumel. Curacao has been mentioned due to its location during hurricane season. I'd like to try snorkelling,do some sightseeing,and relaxing on the beach. And a question,eating at beachfront food huts,restaurants part of the inclusive or seperate?

    For budget-friend all-inclusives I think the "Mayan Riviera" is your best bet (the Caribbean coastline of Mexico including Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Playa del Carmen, Akumal, Cozumel).

    I also like Negril Jamaica and there are a few AIs on the 7-mile beach there (you fly into Montego Bay then shuttle 90 mins out to Negril).

    Not a fan of Punta Cana, in the DR where most of the AIs are located.

    Your dates aren't the best weather-wise for that part of the world since it's summer. Most likely will be hot and humid all the places you mention. And yes change of hurricanes in certain places.

    The arrangements for what restaurants are included would vary from one resort to another. I don't think there's a universal answer to that question.

    Curacao will not be so budget friendly and difficult to get to. At least it wasn't in our experience. Also, AI choices there are not that great.

    We travel to Mexico often due to it being easy to get to and very affordable. We were married in a July and went to Cozumel for our honeymoon. The weather during that time from will be HOT and HUMID even at night. The risk of hurricanes will be more prevalant August to October, so the earleir you go the better.

    Look at the Riviera Maya/Playa del Carmen area of Mexico. Iberostars, Secrets or El Dorados resorts.

    In Jamaica look at the Couples, Secrets, Iberostars and Jewell Dunn's River resorts. The snorkeling in Jamaica is really subpar compared to Mexico. Especially Cozumel.

    Usually, any restuarant/bar that is part of the resort will be included in your all inclusive package. Anything off the resort will not be. An exception would be some resorts offer vouchers to certain restaurants off the property. Also, unless you choose an ultra lux resort, lobster, steaks and top shelf liquour/wine are usually not included. When you decided on a specific resort, the best thing to do is view their web-site which will note what is and isn't included in their all inclusive features. Most people see "all inclusive" and take it to heart and then are disappointed that everything they thought should be included really wasn't. You have to read each resort's specifics as it can vary.
