Honeymoon Jan 2013 between 21-28 days

Jump to last reply

first off.... HELP!! We are getting married Summer 2012 and are going on a short break to Cornwall (UK) straight after. And then in the new year (2013) we are hoping for a biggy honeymoon!

Bit of background:
We are both British, neither of us are seasoned travellers or even a little bit travelled. I've never been out of Europe and Adam has been as far as Canada and USA but on family holidays as a kid. Last time I was out of the UK was to Spain for a girly 4night break of doing nothing but reading and beaching! I am a geographer by education and have had the travel bug forever but due to a million variations in circumstances... have never been able to attempt to satisfy the travelling itch. My husband-to-be is the same.

Our idea: Central America - no real preference to any country except we would most likely fly into Cancun (and out of?). between 3 and 4 weeks. We'd like to do a good stack of one country or two parts of two countries. We're interested in a bit of beaching, some snorkelling, good amount of hiking and ruin tours etc. Because we are far enough away from the hecticness of the wedding neither of us are particularly bothered about laying on various beaches for 3 weeks and doing nothing else. We don't travel, our holidays are limited and we want this to be THE TRIP.

In regards to cost and accomodation, we are not rich! we are asking for honeymoon vouchers towards the cost (not cash) to spend on flights or experiences/tours when we are there. But the bulk of the trip will be paid for out of savings (whatever is left over from the wedding). We don't want to be in hostels particularly as this is our honeymooon we want some sort of comfort. But still, we are on a relative budget. I don't want to spend my honeymoon on a bus between countries either! Realistically how much is this likely to cost us? £1500 per person?? or more like £3000 per person!?

so to finish with: HELP?? Where do I start? Literally... where do I start?? being a travel-virgin.... shall I go to a travel agent and pay over the odds for them to sort it out for me or shall I man up and let my inner travel monster run riot and get organising?!
