October Honeymoon

Jump to last reply

As suggested by the title, I'm getting married in October of this year and need to figure out a great romantic Caribbean getaway for our honeymoon. I'm leaning towards the Caribbean because we are traveling from the southeast US, but I'm not opposed to any recommended Mexican resorts either. Our budget for the trip (including taxes) is under $6,000 for a week not including travel expenses. I'd like to get feedback from other users on their experiences at particular resorts and not just what they have read about them. Some of the items on our wishlist include:

Private beachfront condo, villa, or bungalow preferably with A/C
All inclusive is not a must, but it would be nice (with good food not just buffet style)
Available activities such as hiking, biking, snorkeling, and/or sailing
Spa on the resort
Private plunge pool or at the very least a private hot tub

I understand it may be hard, if not impossible, to find all of these amenities on our budget. If any of you know of a great place that meets most or all of these please let me know. We do understand we will be there during the rainy season and we intend to get trip insurance should the worst case scenario (hurricane) occur.

Thanks!
