We just booked our early September honeymoon for this year. Although, it's not what we originally planned and booked for this year, we are so excited! We booked our flight and resort for Tulum, Mexico! I know that things are scary and uncertain right now, so we waited to book until 45 days out from our wedding. Our flight and resort are completely refundable which is a plus! We will also be self quarantining for 2 weeks after coming back from our honeymoon.

We unfortunately had to postpone our big wedding 2 times! We were originally supposed to have our big wedding in April and leave for our honeymoon in Greece right after. We are now holding off on both of those until Sept. 2021. We will still have a small intimate wedding on September 6th of this year.

2020 Brides- Are you still going on your honeymoon? If so, where are you going? Smiley heart

    That sounds really exciting Cassandra! Smiley heart

    It's awesome that travel companies have still been keeping liberal cancellation policies in place - it actually makes it possible to plan a little!

    That's awesome! Akumal is only a 23 minute drive from Tulum. We are actually going there to swim with sea turtles. Did you know that was popular in Akumal?

    We are also planning on going to cenotes, Coba ruins, Tulum ruins, and the beautiful lagoons. If you haven't looked into any of these yet- I highly recommend checking them out. It looks like a dream! Smiley smile

    Yes! We are staying at the Secrets resort and apparently they have the sea turtles directly in front! That was one reason that helped us make our decision!


    Thanks for the recommendations. Will definitely look into them! Have you been to tulum or akumal before?
    Other than the things you mentioned, what else do y’all have planned?

    Where did you purchase through that let your whole trip be refundable? We are still deciding if its safe or not to honeymoon in November. We really want to do an all inclusive in the Caribbean somewhere...but im so scared of a second wave and everything shutting down again.

    Oh that’s awesome! We actually looked into that resort- it’s beautiful!


    We have never been but have had some friends that have gone. We were planning on also doing a private tour with Edventures where we get to zip line in the jungle and ride ATVs while checking out the lagoons and cenotes. We are also wanting to do a day trip to Chichen Itza and the town Vallodolid. What are you guys planning on doing?

    We booked everything directly to make sure we had direct contact with the hotel and airlines. I highly recommend booking directly because it gets rid of the middle man. We postponed our big honeymoon to Greece in May and it was a pain to reschedule (we booked via tripmasters for that trip)


    For our flight this time we booked Delta. They are currently doing free changes/cancellantions for flights before 9/30 or for any flight booked before 7/31. However, I think they will extend those dates soon. I recommend waiting closer to your date to book airfare because most airlines have a similar policy.
    We booked Mi Amor for our resort and they only required a $50 deposit. The rest was due during check in. So if we decide to cancel we would only lose the $50.
    Hope this helps 🙂!

    We honestly haven’t looked into or booked anything 🤦🏻‍♀️ I have several things written down that I’ve seen others recommend so going to look into them all. I’ve been dealing with all these changes with our wedding ceremony and reception that I haven’t even made time for our honeymoon lol.


    Thanks for the suggestions. Definitely going to look into those also!

    OH MY GOODNESS!!!! Thank you for sharing this! I have a serious LOVE, almost as much love as I do for my kids and FH for sea turtles! I have been trying SO hard to find a spot that has sea turtles we can see live and in person. I am 1000% going to be begging the FH (ok, not begging) to go here for our honeymoon! I could honestly die a happy woman if I was able to see a sea turtle on my honeymoon!.

    I totally get that! Luckily I'm obsessed with travel and planning, because my FH hates planning. So I'm always our travel agent so to speak.

    I bet you guys will have the best time Smiley laugh !

    Of course!

    Right? I think it would be so neat to swim with them too. I always heard about swimming with dolphins but never sea turtles before!

    I hope you guys will be able to go for your honeymoon too Smiley smile !
