Vacation newbie needs advice picking a destination

Jump to last reply

Hi!

I'm getting married in June, and we're looking to do our honeymoon in January (2015). I understand resorts typically say honeymoon packages are only applicable within a few months of the wedding, so I know we won't be getting that.

I haven't been to a resort before so I need some help. I figure I'll post what we're interested in and see if anyone can help me out.

-Can't do Mexico
-All-inclusive
-Adult only
-Clean, preferably not known for issues with plumbing and such
-Quality food (not necessarily fancy fine dining, but at a minimum is better-than-average quality that won't wreak havoc on our bowels)
-On a beach with good swimming
-Options for fun excursions
-Budget of $6,000 Canadian for two, including airfare from Toronto (YYZ)

Also when do you think would be a good time to book?
