Tropical/Romantic Honeymoon Destination(without Zika)

Jessica, on July 18, 2016 at 7:39 PM Posted in Honeymoon 0 17

I've been looking into the Bahamas & other places in that general area, but I'm concerned about the Zika virus! Does anyone have tropical/romantic suggestions for a honeymoon that's not infested with the Zika virus & that's not Hawaii. I LOVE Hawaii, but me and FH want to go to a place that neither of us has been before Smiley smile

    Okinawa (Japan), Jeju (Korea), Kenting (Taiwan) - all are beachy and good.

    I would read up on Zika. A lot of the countries are not high risk.

    Nothing to contribute as PP'S have shared good choices but I am pretty sure we've had Zika reports in Florida. Wear bug spray. ETA- Yep, after a quick Google search scratch Florida off of the list.

    Like pp said, do some homework about Zika. It's also here in the US, just as they knew it would be.

    DF and I went to Mexico in May. We've been ttc for 30 cycles now. While chance was not on our side, it was still a chance we had to decide whether we were comfortable taking. We took a ton of bug repellant and went. Neither of us got bitten thanks to our sprays, and we had a great time.

    Do your research, talk to your doctor, and make an informed decision.

    Bermuda, Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, and St.Kitts currently do not have active Zika infection. But it's impossible to tell what will happen a year from now. They all could by then. Or there could be a vaccine by then.

    We went to Riviera Maya, Mexico and had booked before it was such a huge concern. I was totally paranoid, and looked into cancelling, but we wouldn't get our money back because I wasn't expecting. We were both bit multiple times, but neither one of has have shown symptoms and it's been over a month. That's not to say we don't have it, but we aren't TTC until next June. I will have my doctor run tests when I go in for my annual/pre-conception in January, but since we aren't TTC for a year, I'm not overly concerned.

    Bahamas doesn't have mosquito spread zika yet. And no, FL doesn't have zika, people who have travelled to over countries have zika and are now in FL. Not spread by mosquitos in FL, yet.
