    I'm getting married April 30,2011 and we are looking for a place to have our honeymoon. We haven't had a chance to look anywhere specific, but we do know a few things the place must be:

    Somewhere tropical
    Not a 10 hour flight from here (East Tennessee)
    All-inclusive (thats the biggie)
    Not a cruise ( I've been on a few. They are nice, just not my thing)
    Couples only

    Just want yalls input on places you've been. Not just locations, but resorts as well. Maybe even some pictures. Probably not gonna be able to spend over 5-6 grand.

    Riviera Maya Mexico. I went there for my honeymoon last Oct. Stayed at the El Dorado Seaside Suites. I liked it because it was a smaller resort. All inclusive. No buffets which was sweet. We had a swim up room ie 7 ft out the back door was a private pool. It wasn't an arm and a leg either. Straight through flight from ST. Louis. 3 hours. I went through a travel agent. Her companies name is Travel by Gretchen. Google her she in in south Carolina. I know at least 15 people that have gone through her.

    Me and the wife just got married last November and went to the Sandals in Antigua. It was good but we don't really take advantage of all of the included stuff (i.e. alcohol, butler). The food and amenities were great. We stayed in the Mediterranean side and it was newer/nicer than the other part of the resort. That being said, if you could stomach a 3-4 hour flight and another 6 hour flight I would take the trip to Hawaii. We've been to Kauai a few times (hopefully headed back again in November :D) and it is amazing if you like the outdoors and not alot of commercialized stuff. Just my .02. Let me know if you want any info on the Sandals, I def did my research.

    Here are some pics from the Sandals Resort in Antigua:

    Take a cruise with Royal Caribbean. That's what my wife and I do every year and did on our honeymoon 7 years ago. you'll probably spend less than 2500.oo with flight and cruise for two, have a real good time. have breakfast/lunch/dinner included everyday. bars galore. entertainment and you'll get to see at least 3 different locations. I've been on 6 cruises and have never regreted any one of them. Good partying too.

    Rent a villa in st. thomas. Short flight. US territory. Relatively safe. You can rent a private house with your own pool, grill etc. BEST SNORKELING IN THE WORLD. Amazing beaches, like the ones in corona commericals. You can also rent a jeep, do some offtroading, etc. St. John and the British virgin islands are short ferry rides away. Jost van dyke (a british island), has a bar thats on the honor system! You could go for a week, rent a rediculous villa, and live like kings for under 4k! PM if you want details...

    DO NOT GO TO THE ATLANTIS RESORT IN THE BAHAMAS!!! that place is a total tourist trap. We had the worst service and everything is terribly overpriced. Not to mention the 15% gratutity tax on EVERYTHING!!! While the scenary is beautiful that is the only thing that this place has going for it.

    We spent our honeymoon week last Christmas in San Pedro, Belize. The fishing and snorkeling was excellent!! Plus got to tour some Mayan ruins on Christmas day which was awesome. It wasn't the all-inclusive type of trip but got my travel and lodging sorted out through a travel agent and we booked our excursions with a local shop when we got there. All in all we spent somewhere in between $3k-$5k.

    Didn't really wanna come back home honestly. :)

    I think this is a good choice. On the other hand, Hawaii can be done on the cheap. Each Island is different. I've been to the Big Island and Oahu, and kauai is forthcoming. Get a vacation rental (VRBO.com for example). Avoid the stupid "all inclusive" tours too. Get an unofficial guidebook to the island you choose. No need for a jeep on Oahu, but you'll want for the BI and, perhaps, Kauai.

    we went to the sandals in st. lucia.. it was gorgeous.. well worth it..
    what ever you do make sure it is ALL-INCLUSIVE that was the best part.. you could go up to a bar on the resort and order a beer or whatever and then just walk off after you got it..

    fantastic

    We stayed at Seabright. Which was awesome. But also check out some of the places on St. John. Theres a small one that is on its own private island! You have to take a boat to go anywhere, but its pretty cool.

    If you're a Costco member, check Costco's vacation packages online. My wife and I got a 7 day stay in Hawaii in a ocean front hotel (Outrigger), flight and rental car for $2K for the both of us. Good deal.
