It all depends on your personality and relationship with your better half. . . Paris would be great for the artsy couple. . . the tropical beaches would be fun for the outdoorsy, Hawaii or Bahamas or South America. . .

It also depends on your budget and schedule.

Costa Rica for the canopy riding and the incredible beaches and the wonderful people and food. Do it.

@njnyjobs Wel she loves culture, warm weather, friendly people, and lots of activities.

For me it would be Disneyworld, but Italy would be great too.
Edit: The Hotel De Paris in Monaco was amazing. Just don’t let her get a male massage. My massage therapist got a little to friendly.

I’d want to go to Argentina on my honeymoon. This is why.

If you ask me I feel that the best place for a honeymoon would be Aspen Colorado. Learn to sky together and you’ll see how close it can make you and your better half. Plus it will give the two of you an excuse to cuddle by a roaring fire.

@Tenpinmaster the case being that, (she loves culture, warm weather, friendly people, and lots of activities.) get yourself a Cathay Pacific All Asia Pass . . . http://www.cathayusa.com/offers/allasiapass/subdefault.asp

@sweethottaco Just be sure to pack lots of money if you’re vacationing in Aspen.

I went to Bonaire, which is the least populated, least tourist-y island in the Netherlands Antilles (the other two are Aruba and Curacao).

We spent ten days there, and loved every minute of it. We stayed at the Plaza Resort Bonaire, in a junior suite (that was more than big enough. We had a private patio and a huge room). We rented a car, filled it up once, and never had to fill it again. You can drive every road on the island (at the maximum speed of 35 mph) in about an hour and a half, if you don’t stop. Which you will.

There are donkeys and goats roaming the streets everywhere, and iguanas at every turn. There are no animals that weren’t brought to the island by travellers. Nothing is native to the island. The island is home to one of only three natural flamingo nesting areas in the hemisphere – Lake Goto. It’s gorgeous.

Go diving or snorkeling while you’re there. The reefs are wonderful. Hire one of the locals to take you sailing into the sunset one night. See if you can catch the green flash at sunset – it’s really there!

Eat at Richard’s. He’s a hell of a nice guy, and it’s the best steak I’ve ever had. Also, eat at Kontiki, it’s right around the corner from the Nudist colony, where you can have a kayak tour of the island headed by your own personal Nudist. ^_^

Take a drive through the wilderness reserve at the north side of the island. The views are breathtaking.

On the east side of the island, go off the main road near the coast and look for the caves. See what you think of the cave drawings. One of the cave drawings is (I’m convinced) a map of the night sky, complete with constellations (fish, turtle)

Bonaire is not the place to go if you’re looking to party. It isn’t Aruba. If you’re out of your hotel room after 11:00PM, Security will come by on their bicycle, just to make sure you’re not causing trouble like a bunch of raucous Americans. They do get a little on the crazier side on Saturday nights, though. That’s a good time to be on the main strip.

There’s a little store in Rincon – it’s an orange house, with an awning over the living room window. Best milkshakes ever. Seriously. I think they’re made with goats’ milk.

@Seek_Kolinahr ; we were invited to go along with another couple on their honeymood to Bonaire. great Scuba diving!

The Fjords or Norway. I’ve always wanted to go there.

@Judi

Did you add your city to the sign?

We did

Judi's avatar

I don’t remember seeing it, but it was a few years ago. I remember a resteraunt in town that was delicious. He was a retired cruise ship chef and she was a cruise director

We did three months in Barbados. It’s a bit off the beaten path and has fewer troubles than the other English-speaking islands. This was over ten years ago, things may have totally changed by now.

Hmmm, when I get married, I want to go to Europe, bur depending on the amount of money I have, I would love to go on a cruise. I have never been on one, and I think it would be really cool.

Mexico is pretty great for all the things you say she loves. You could divide the time between Mexico City for the cultural aspects and one of the beach towns for the beachy, warm weather stuff. I particularly liked Sayulita, which is a small beach town north of Puerto Vallarta. The Yucatan peninsula is also fantastic for Mayan ruins and could be combined with Cozumel. I also loved Costa Rica for nature, beaches, friendly people and great activities; just not as much culture there. Can’t go too wrong in Italy either, but it is very expensive now.

Judi's avatar

@janbb ; Mexico is pretty dangerous right now. My friends were robbed in a high end resort and the hotel hesitated to even help them file a police report and were even more scared when Hotel took them to the boon docks where a police station was supposed to be and no one was there.
There is also a really bad drug war going on there. They are not doing as good a job of taking care of their tourists as they used to. (They were in Ensenada.)

clarice's avatar

Singapore! it’s a great mix of everything and you can drop me a message when you’ve come over! :))

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@Judi getting robbed in Mexico…ha…that’s part of the vacation there…it’s like the whole point…jk, sorry about your friends

janbb's avatar

@Judi Yeah, you’re right – it probably is not a great place to go right now. What a shame! That still leaves Costa Rica and Italy on my list.

Tenpinmaster's avatar

@njnyjobs Thank you for that information :)

Tenpinmaster's avatar

Wow, these are fantastic places! I have never heard of some of them but they sound very nice :) great job with the answers

Tenpinmaster's avatar

@shego Wow! what kind of cruise are you looking for? Those are fantastic :-) Also, Europe would be very fun if lots of fundage was available.

Tenpinmaster's avatar

@shego or i should say, what kind of cruise would you like to go on. They all have different things to do (depending on the cruise line ).

YARNLADY's avatar

We always return to the same place we got married, Asilomar State Beach

Tenpinmaster's avatar

@YARNLADY that sound nice, so what made you choose that beach?

YARNLADY's avatar

@Tenpinmaster I attended a conference there.
