Any plans for a honeymoon?

I am thinking of going to Machu Picchu. I hear that it won't be open for tours much longer as it is slowly sinking and will become unstable. I will be looking into it but I'm open to back-up suggestions.

Where will you be going?

    We'll be going on a Western Carribean cruise. I hope. But we're not THAT far into planning yet. But, that's what we'll be saving for. lol

    What about Mexico? You could stay in a great resort in the Riviera Maya and check out the Mayan Ruins?

    The Greek Islands are also fantastic!

    P.S. Love your pic!!

    I have always wanted to go to Machu Picchu! I think it depends on what you are looking for. Active honeymoon or relaxed honeymoon? I think Machu Picchu will be pretty active. A friend of mine went recently and told me of all the hiking/climbing up stairs she did.

    I was thinking of Peru as well, but we really want to spend a lot of time there and in Chile - so it will have to wait until we get our 12 weeks of paid long service leave in 2014. If I were you, I'd definitely go! In the meantime, we're going to Mexico (have a vacation club membership at a resort Riveria Maya), Belize, Guatemala, and Honduras on our honeymoon.

    We just returned from Excellence Playa Mujeres in Cancun Mexico, where we got engaged. And we have plans to go there for our honeymoon as well. It's a secluded and beautiful resort.

    It sounds great. Especially if you want to check it out while you still can. I am going to Greece.

    Still not 100%, but definitely leaning heavily towards the New Zealand & Australia vibe. We both seperately studied abroad in Australia in college, so part of me wants to go somewhere totally new, but what an amazing thing to do the both of us!

    Wow! So many great ideas. I would love to do a Mediterranean cruise as well. My FH and I went on the Mexican Rivera Cruise were we got engaged on a private beach in Puerto Vallarta. I just want to travel! I would love go back to South America (like Chile or Rio) then again there are so many more places I want to go... like EVERYWHERE. haha

    We're going on a cruise to the Western Caribbean. We were originally gonna fo Greece, but I heard that the weather is terrible in Oct., plus I was nervous about their economy.

    We're going to Italy! Staying in Rome most of the time w/a couple of nights in Venice and many day trips planned. Soooooooo excited

    A bunch of good ideas- here's another one that may interest you Pic_Z

    I have clients going to Costa Rica in a few weeks- renting a 4x4 w/ GPS & self-driving from San Jose to up near Arenal volcano for 4 nights, then driving down near Manuel Antonio at all-inclusive for 4 more nights.

    In neither case are the accommodations "roughing it", but in terms of hiking, seeing and doing C.R. is tough to beat (and the pricing came back very nicely)

    EZTravelpad, that our plan! Costa Rica seems like the best of both worlds when it comes to honeymoons. We're hoping to do a few days in the Arenal region to visit the hot springs and do some ziplining through the rainforest canopy. And then hiking in Monteverde and then relaxing on the beach in Manuel Antonio. So excited!

    We thought about Australia and NZ, but coming from NYC, we'd lose an entire day just getting there and the prices for plane tickets is about as much as we might spend our entire time in CR.

    Ohhh that would be cool. Costa Rica... Hmm. I did hear from a friend that there is a company (I can't remember who) but they have Motorcycle tour where you would ride during the day and they have cabins and camp sites set up to sleep at night then drive to the next stop. I'll have to look into something like that.

    I would love to go back to europe but my mind keeps going to South America. Easter Island would be cool too.
