My husband and I are both turning 30 this year and celebrating our 3rd anniversary. We didn't take a honeymoon, so I would like to plan a trip this year. I want to do something all inclusive at a beach destination. Any ideas?

My husband and I took a babymoon last March to Negril, Jamaica. It was WONDERFUL! We stayed at the all inclusive resort Couples Negril, it's an adult only resort, no children to deal with which made for a very relaxing beach. This location has white sand and the calmest waters on the island, virtually as quiet as a pond. I could go on and on about some of the great features of the place but if you want to know more just PM me. If cost is a factor we paid around 4200 for 7 nights (March is peak season). But do make sure you go through a travel agent so they can help with a charter flight (no connections).

My family took a cruise to the Bahamas. It had activities on the boat, we stopped on a private island for a day for some fun in the sun then stopped off at the Bahamas and did some shopping and tourism stuff. There were activities for children and adults and was a blast!!! After the cruise we went to Disney world! Great vacation idea!

Hi Alyssa,

8 years ago I got married to my husband in Jamaica. We were married in negril at th Grand Lido all inclusive resort.
The food is awesome, everything you would want to do is right there. The resort bought a yacht that once belonged to the late princess Grace, we were married aboard that yacht and took nightly free cruises on it as well. I've been to Jamaica twice. The first time I was at a Sandals that was nice, but in my opinion, this one was better. Oh....and if you don't want to drive to the resort (it can be quite scary), You can fly from the airport straight to Negril in a fraction of the time and it is very beautiful. I highly recommend this resort and will go back someday. This same exact resort was one that Regis and Kelly gave away as a trip, so you know it must be good. Everyone is so friendly and helpful too if you need anything. I could go on and on about this place :)

Good Luck,
K.

My husband and I got married at the Sandals Resort in Jamaica close to three years ago. It was a awsome all inclusive trip. My con with it being Jamaica (don't get me wrong, I love the country,) is that if you do plan to leave the resort to do any of the excursions, you definately need a chaparone from the resort to take you there and back. If I had to go back to a resort that is from Sandals, it will probably be in the Turks & Caicos area. Also, if you are planning to take your daughter, then Beaches will have to be the all inclusive resort for you. Hope this helps! Good luck and enjoy the trip!

Congrats on your anniversary! My husband and I love, love, love the couples resorts in Jamiaca (there are 4 of them). We have stayed at Swept Away and at San Souci....highly recommend both. www.couples.com

One great thing about these places is that all activities, including a sunset cruise, a trip to Duns River Falls and SCUBA diving are ALL INCLUDED. Most all inclusives charge you for these extra activities. Also the food is fabulous, and they serve all kinds of liquors/wine/beer. I've stayed in all-inclusives in Mexico (Cancun and Puerto Vallharta) and they only serve house liquors/wine/beer. Have fun (just don't go during hurricane season Aug-Nov)

Went all inclusive to Montego Bay twice LOVED it. The hotels offer many activities that are included. Staff were VERY much there to please. All the food and drinks were included- and were FANTASTIC. We went on some outings that were not included but were very inexpensive - we climbed Dunn's River Falls, had lunch and 2 hr shopping time cost was like $60 per person. Went on ride to the glowing water, rum punch was included was like $35 each

Went to Cancun all inclusive, was also great Was just a year after hurricane damage, was amzing what they had repaired. took trip to Myan Ruins and a swimming place where fresh and sea water meet was a bit more costly $150 ea

Took cruise that stopped in Cozumel and Playa Del Carmen - was fun, as my first time BUT everything wasn't included, so there was a bill at the end to pay. Did do activity on one stop which was to swim with dolphins $150 ea but WELL worth it, an awesome experience.

No money to exchange for any of these, and every place has activities for kids. So that there are times when adults can do things they want and kids get to do what they want

we found the best prices are usualy through
Travel by Jen, Travel flea market, apple vacations.

Have fun!

My company owns a variety of Condo Hotels. And although they are not located in all inclusive Resorts, we do have some very exotic locations. I would recommend our newest location in Placencia Belize. Our 2 BR, 2 Bath condo sits directly on the beach and overlooking the infinity pool. There is a Restaurant and Bar onsite and a variety of tours both inland and at sea. Please email me direct at [email protected]____.com if you would like more info. The best part about this property is that they are offering very low introductory pricing since they just opened in 12/2007.

Call a travel agent. I just used on to book my twin, cousin, and I a trip for our 30th birthday. For $669 per person, we got an all inclusive resort in Cancun. It pays for airfare, transportation from airport to hotel and back, hotel, taxes and fees. With the all inclusive hotel we get food and alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks along with some entertainment. We have kids so we could not go longer. They did have similar packages to the Riviara Mya (more laid back)for just a bit more.

When my husband and I were deciding on where to honeymoon, we each made a list of priorities of what we wanted the resort to include. (I married the right man....our lists were so similar!) We looked at a lot of brochures to see who could accommodate our "lists" and narrowed it down from there. We took a trip to paradise at a Sandals resort in St. Lucia. It wasn't terribly expensive, and it had everything we wanted (and more!)
St. Lucia is a small Caribbean island (27X9 miles), but has a lot to offer. It takes about and hour and a half to get from one end to the other (by car...let someone else drive!). It's lush with vegetation, rain forest, volcano (inactive), beaches (of course!), and the most beautiful people on earth (inside and out).
That's not even mentioning what the resort had to offer. It's worth it to look in to honeymooning here. My husband (of 10 and a half years) and I still look back fondly on our honeymoon and intend to make it back there again some day.

We have gone to Riviera Maya, Mexico the last two years. It is beautiful and a wonderful, hot, sunny break from this cold weather. We have used Apple Vacations for both trips. We fly into Cancun and take a provided shuttle about 40 minutes south close to Tulum. In 2006 we stayed at Barcelo Maya Resort. BEAUTIFUL, the food is good, the beach is great but so are the pools. They have a small water park and nice kids' club if you're taking your daughter. In 2007 we stayed at Bahia Principe - Coba. This is a huge complex and also very beautiful. Not as close to the beach, but the shuttles take you everywhere. The beach was not as nice, but you could go to a different pool everyday for a week! The Apple people have offices on site at the larger resorts (both of the above ones) and are there to help you with any problems or to book excursions. If you go to this area, be sure to visit the town of Playa del Carmen. Great shopping and lots of fun. Good Luck!!

My son had his wedding at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun. It was great. The rooms were beautiful and included a double jacuzzi. Our group booked about 12 rooms, and all but one had an oceanview. The service was fantastic and a couple of dollars in tips went a very long way. Between the Moon Palace and its sister resort, next door, there were many options for nice meals and the food was great. In April of 2006, the cost, for 5 nights, including airfare was less than $1500 per person. I completely recommend this all inclusive resort if you want to relax, enjoy the ocean and be pampered. I also recommend "swimming with the dolphins."

Try going to Akumal Beach in the Mexican Riviera. You would fly into Cancun, then travel South about 1.5 hours past Play del Carmen. Akumal has beautiful resorts, and wonderful ancient ruins in Tulum a 35 min drive south, and lovely white sand beaches that are not commercial. We stayed at the Grand Sirenas Riviera Maya (not the G.S. Mayan Beach--that's different)it was fabulous. We took our 3 daughters over New Years last year; they still talk about the trip. It is family friendly and have kids programs, face painting, games that are supervised, etc. Being it was in Mexico, the dollar went far, as compared to other beach destinations. We also took a day trip down to the Tulum ruins, and went into Playa del Carmen for a 1/2 day--very commercial there--like Cancun. Good luck!

I would recommend any of the Couples resorts in Jamaica. They are all adult-only all inclusive resorts and offer a variety of activities included in the price (i.e. diving, horseback riding, catamaran cruises, etc). The food and drinks are of a wide variety and very good quality and taste. The staff are amazing and go above and beyond what you would expect from an all-inclusive resort. The best part of all of their resorts is they are all about romance. Candle lit dinners by the water, dancing in the evening to the house band, and wondering off to be alone in one of the hanging baskets, hammocks, or even hidden hot tubs in the lush tropical gardens. I mean this is definitely the place to fall in love all over again.
My husband and I have been to 3 of their resort properties (5 total trips), and are scheduled to stay at their newest property Couples San Souci in 6 wks. Both of us are so excited to see what this new resort has to offer, as each property offers a different type of atmosphere and experience.

My husband and I enjoy traveling and have been to a lot of place; however, one of the most romantic places I've ever been is Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. If you go, try to stay in Old Town. We stay at a place called La Pallapa which is right on Los Muetroes beach. During the day, the waiters wait on your every need. There's a walk way along the beach that will take you all the way into downtown. Along the way the palm trees are all lit up with twinkle lights and there is music in most restaurants and bars which are along the walkway. You can easily walk into town where there are street performers and shows going on.

My other piece of advice is to avoid holiday times. Prices are always higher. Some friends of ours got a great deal to an all inclusive in Cancun because they went in October.

Enjoy.

I have to recommend the "Sandals" resorts. My husband and I did one for our honeymoon and it was great. EVERYTHING was included, food, drinks, water sports, including diving. Big resort with lots of room to roam. Also a plus, it is couples only, no kids (they have resorts called Beaches for families). Staff was very helpful and polite, any time you had your camera out, they volunteered to take a couple pictures for you- nice to have one or two with both of you in it! We paid everything up front and didn't take money out the whole trip. That really let me relax and not worry about the details. Hope that helps!!

We took a belated honeymoon to Maui and stayed at the Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa. There were kid activities and grown up activities. The resort sits right on the beautiful Kaanapali beach on the west coast of the island. There were so many things to do that we couldn't fit them into our 10 day trip.

My husband and I also went to Sandals St. Lucia for our honeymoon and would love to go back. A bonus to choosing this one is that there are three Sandals resorts on the small island of St. Lucia and once you pay for one you can hop to the others by shuttle to use their restaurants and amenities also.

Also know, that if you want to take excursion trips, those are not "included." We really recommend them but be prepared to pay. We did a rainforest hike and a day sail on a big catamaran. Wonderful.

It was and still is like a dream.

Hi, my name is N.. Don't know what your interests are, or the financial situation, but one of my favorite places in the world is New Zealand. And they speak english..sort of! Kiwi's are extreamly nice people. I would suggest s'thing like fly into Auckland, rent a vehicle, if you can keep left! You will need at least 2-3 weeks to travel both islands. Go from Auckland to Wellington, take the InterIslander ferry to Picton. The west coast of both islands are beautiful and easy to navigate. I would suggest going on the west coast of the south isl to Dunedan, back north on the east coast to Christchurch and fly out of there! You will see awesome things. The wildlife, the mountains, watefalls-that you can drink from, jade, seafood, wool products, penguins(dunedan) and much more. If you can make it to Lake Wannaka, take a personal flight over the alps to the Milford sound...definately worth it. You'll fly over the area where the Lord of the Rings was filmed. It is so green, so clean, nice people...even tourists are happy.

It is an addrenaline country, so skydive, climb a glacier, take a hike...or bungie jump! There is something to see around every corner...and not alot of touristy BS!

Hope you think seriously about it! My mate lives in Brisbane, Australia, that's where I am for my winter, St. Louis is too cold for me!

Well, g'day to you and congratulations! Hope whereever you end up is relaxing and all that you want it to be!

As Always, N.

Hi A.,

We must be neighbors... I am from Olathe too! OK, I recently went on a cruise to the Mexican Riviera. It was absolutely, amazingly romantic. We were on the Princess Diamond - highly suggest this ship. I am working on earning a trip to Moon Palace in Cancun in October - more than 1/2 way there already. My niece just went and said it was a blast, she gave me loads of advise on what to do.

My company puts out a trip yearly and I take my my husband and sometimes my family (this year the girls went with us to Paradise Island - the Atlantis Resort). So cool to have the whole family, but also love to have just my guy. They let you "double" your efforts your first month as a new consultant... Have you checked out Arbonne? Happy to share how to win!

Good luck and enjoy every moment of your life... S.

Breezes at Runnaway Bay in Jamaica. AWESOME!!! All inclusive, didn't have to leave the resort if you didn't want to, but information on site if you wanted to plan a trip to the Falls.

My husband and I did 5 nights in Cancun, all-inclusive and it was wonderful. Very clean and affordable. I highly reccomend the Palace Resort chain. They have about 5 to choose from in the Cancun area and since you're all-inclusive you can visit them all and that gives you tons of options for activities, restaurants, etc. We got to pick two activities to be included too...we did a snorkel trip and a trip to see the Mayan ruins. They were both top notch. Some of the ones I remember are Beach Palace, Moon Palace, and Spa Palace...but I'm pretty sure there are others. Have fun on your trip!

I also recommend Sandals in St. Lucia. We met several people at the resort who had been to other islands/resorts and they said far and away St. Lucia had the prettiest water. It wasn't cloudy even a little bit and the colors are undescribable. There are three Sandals resorts there, and you have access to all of the restaurants/activities for all three. Now that's a deal! Not matter what you choose I'm sure you'll love it.
