Honeymoon Vacation Ideas #5: One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited is the island of St. Lucia. My wife and I honeymooned at The Sandals Grande St. Lucian Resort and it was amazing. At Sandals, they take care of pretty much everything. We ate 3 great meals a day as well as having snacks and drinks brought to us while lying on the beach.
If we decided to hang at the pool, we were able to swim up to their swim up bar to grab drinks. We also took an amazing land and sea excursion through "Joe Knows" tours. We were able to see much of the island by boat, snorkel below the Pitons, visit an active volcano, soaked in a natural mud bath and dined on the local cuisine.
There is also a local drink that you have to try. It is known as the BBC. It is a blended concoction of banana, Baileys, rum, and ice. I definitely overindulged in these. It is an amazing place and recommend visiting if you ever have the opportunity! - By Gavin from Minnesota

We considered several European vacation ideas. But then we thought that, after the stress of planning a wedding, a tropical honeymoon might be nice. Just lay out in the sun and more or less stay in one spot without having to worry about seeing different historical sites and traveling once we had reached our destination.
We felt we should save the European vacation for a later date. So, which tropical location should we choose: the Bahamas, Hawaii, Mexico? Having just graduated from college, we needed honeymoon trip ideas that would give us the most bang for our buck. Mexico seemed like it would fit our needs.
After some consideration, we chose Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We stayed at the all-inclusive resort Riu Jalisco (which is actually located in Nuevo Vallarta - right next to Puerto Vallarta).
The Riu Jalisco Resort was wonderful, clean, and had plenty of activities to choose from if you wanted something to do besides lying on the beach. The food and drinks were great, and the staff was fantastic!
The beach was beautiful, with soft white sand and beautiful water. The waves were perfect for boogey boarding, which my husband and I tried with varying levels of success throughout our one week vacation.
The resort also offered a variety of excursion activities if you felt like venturing outside of the resort. We tried two of the excursion activities, and we thoroughly enjoyed both.
The first was a mini-cruise that included snorkeling in crystal clear water and a hike through tropical forest and a small fishing village. It ended with a stop at a pretty little waterfall where people could refresh themselves after the hike.
The second excursion was zip lining through the tropical forest. Now, I am rather afraid of heights, but I felt this was an opportunity I should not pass up. It was absolutely amazing, breathtaking, and worth the extra bit of money we paid.
The zip line staff was second to none. I felt completely safe, and once I got past the initial leap off the first balcony I couldn't wait to zip my way through the rest of the forest. It was such a thrill, and the views were spectacular.
We also took one day to mill about the city of Puerto Vallarta, take in the sights, and do a little shopping at the outdoors markets.
All in all, it was a superb choice of all the honeymoon trip ides. The price wasn't bad either, especially when compared to some more expensive tropical locations.
Now, being married and a mother of two, I look back to our days on the beach at Riu Jalisco, and I start to think perhaps it's time for another tropical getaway. - Stephanie from Iowa
Jamaica is famous for its all-inclusive resorts but we were skeptical about spending our entire vacation on one resort. In the end we did go with an all-inclusive resort called Couples Negril. We could not have been happier with our choice. One thing the remember is that much of Jamaica is very poor and walking around is not the best idea.
Having all-inclusive meant that all our drinks and food was provided right on this perfect resort. The drinks were strong and the food was great. They even have an activities team that organizes everything from volleyball games to tie-dying t-shirts. They even gave us free t-shirts to tie-dye. Like I said earlier the beach was absolutely perfect. Smooth sand at warm water.
We went in September so I don't know about the rest of the year but the crystal clear ocean felt like bath water. Couples Negril even offers free snorkeling and glass bottom boat tours. On the boat we saw a huge tortuous and jumping fish.
For the snorkeling they take you out to a very active coral reef. Sting rays and every color fish you can imagine were everywhere. They offer night snorkeling to see lobster and octopus as well but my wife was too scared to go. I love our stay at couples Negril. If anyone is looking for a quite resort with plenty to do I would strongly recommend them.
The sand is perfectly pink making this a truly gorgeous sight. Half of this incredible mile long beach belongs to the Elbow Beach Hotel.
It's been around since 1908 and sits on 50 acres of landscaped gardens. For you honeymooners they have 6 luxurious individual Spa Suites, two with special private garden access.
