FH and I know we definitely want an all-inclusive honeymoon but there seem to be soo many to choose from, it's a little overwhelming! Any suggestions of resorts...also any you recommend we stay away from? Thanks all!

    FH and I went to Mazatlan and stayed at Riu. It was my first trip and it was really nice. I was a lil freaked out to be in that part of Mexico (you hear horror stories), but that hotel was wonderful and we never had to leave. Totally recommend.

    Future M...FH has said some places in Jamaica and Mexico aren't necessarily the safest but goodness they're gorgeous. I personally don't care where it is as long as its on the beach with EVERYTHING included. Thanks!

    I agree with your FH. We're doing Sandals, Montego Bay. We won't be leaving the resort. We wanted an all-inclusive but Adult Only.

    We went to the El Dorado Casistas Royale in Mexico, it was amazing and I would recommend it absolutely. If you are feeling overwhelmed (I was!) I would recommend using a travel agent, they are free (well at least most are) and they can help find some suggestions based around your price range and wants in a resort! We are super glad we did!

    We used a travel agent. No cost to us, we just told her our budget what we wanted and she sent us a bunch if options. We narrowed them down to a free and she came back with pricing. We ended up choosing Excellence Playa Mujeres in Mexico near Cancun.

    We're doing a DW at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya in Mexico. It's of course, partly our honeymoon.

    I would also recommend a travel agent. Here in Canada we went through CAA (Canadian Automotive Association) since we are a member and it didn't cost us anything. If you are a member of AAA then I would recommend going to them.

    Before going though, ask yourself a few questions: where do you want to go (Caribbean, Mexico, etc)? When do you want to go? What are you wanting to do? Are you activities people or more lay on the beach or by the pool people? Do you want an 18 resort or something with possibly families? Do you have a price range in

    what you want to spend?

    DH and I went to the Golden Paradise Club in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It's an 18+ resort, but has a sister family resort next door that allows you to use all their facilities.

    We felt very safe there and even ventured outside of the resort a few times-to get to our activites, to go on a city tour and to walk to a local shopping centre.

    We went through a travel agent as well and it didn't cost anything but took off the pressure of "shopping" and comparing. We told her what we wanted and she got back to me with some names, I visited their websites and looked at reviews and we finally chose Secrets Maroma Beach in CanCun. IT WAS THE BEST VACATION EITHER OF US HAS EVER BEEN ON!! We felt it was exactly what a honeymoon should be like. I highly recommend it.

    We went to a travel agent locally and told her what we wanted to spend roughly. We got an all inclusive, flight there and back, and 7 nights in Punta Cana at Now Liramar for September 2014 for $2800. Would have liked an adult only but it would have been an additional 1000 dollars and since we are going at the beginning of September most kids will probably be back to school so we won't have too many little ones running around was our thought. Hope this hels!

    We went to Excellence Riviera Maya in Mexico earlier this year. It was an adults-only all inclusive and they seemed to make a big fuss over honeymooners. I loved the resort and the service! It was the best food I've ever had at an all inclusive and you could go to any of the special restaurants (7 I think) on the resort any night (some resorts limit you only certain nights for the special restaurants and make you go to the banquet other nights). I believe they have a location in DR too if you'd rather a different place.

    Dominican Republic. Very affordable and nice...make sure you read reviews. They have very high end and then the ones that are not so much.

    I'm going to do all inclusive too. Don't want to worry about having cash for everything. I think we are going to stay at the Weston in Guanacarte, Costa Rica. The reviews I read online were amazing. Unless I find a better from now until June. The plans could change
