Mid October Honeymoon

Jump to last reply

My fiancée and I are leaving for our honeymoon Oct. 18-25, our goal is to fly and rent a hotel for under $3000 for the 7 days. We will be flying out of Minneapolis, MN. He would like to sit on the beach and relax. I would like to go on nature hikes, do some birding and see some waterfalls. We both really enjoy fishing, snorkeling and outdoor activities. Big towns and culture aren't really our thing, we would rather spend our time out in nature. That being said, I need some advice on where to go. I just cannot make up my mind. I have looked into what seems like EVERYWHERE. Here are my thoughts,

Jamaica-sounds perfect, but a little weary of the AI resorts. I don't want to be stuck on a resort, but I also don't mind booking tours with a group of people. I have read some, not so pleasant, things about the locals hassling tourists and the crime-so that worries me a little. Still considering, but confused as to where is the best place for us to stay.

St Lucia-was my top choice, but not within our budget.

St. Johns/St. Thomas-we considered staying in St. Johns, but just feels too "Americanized" and I could be totally wrong about that. Judging by the pictures I've seen I'm not sure I would be too impressed with the rainforest, so now I'm looking at other options.

Puerto Rico- Went last March, loved it, will return, but not for my honeymoon.

Grenada-I have just started researching this, sounds pretty awesome, but not sure its within our budget.

We have also considered Costa Rica, Belize and Nicaragua-my fiancé isn't to keen on the central America idea.

Mexico is still in the running, but I am very weary of AI, getting sick and finding the right spot of Mexico to have the best experience.

So please, any and all advice is greatly appreciated. I am going crazy trying to decide where to go. There are so many lovely options!
