Road map to romance

special to the daily

For most newlyweds, the honeymoon is the long-awaited dessert after the main course of the wedding celebration. In the states, the average cost of a honeymoon is $3,700 three times the amount typically spent on a vacation. Choosing a destination for a honeymoon can be a daunting task, with many tempting options competing for your attention. With this in mind, we’ve put together the honeymoon guide. For each price bracket you’ll find honeymoon vacation recommendations gathered from local travel agents, reflecting the experiences of their customers. Happy honeymoon hunting!

“Mexico is a very popular choice in this price range. The range of accommodation is enormous, so there’s something to suit all tastes and budgets. The Mayan Riviera is particularly popular, as the small and intimate resorts appeal to couples.”

” Linda, Overland and Express Travel, Edwards, 970-926-9206

“Mexico. If you’re on a budget it’s a great choice. Puerto Vallarta has fantastic beaches and is very popular with couples. It’s a good place to have a wedding ceremony too. Your money will go a long way there.”

” Jeanette, Peak Experience Travel Inc, Buena Vista, 719-395-8677

“The Mayan Riviera. There are a lot of all-inclusive deals available that make this a very attractive place to go. Great beaches, great value.”

” Suzi, Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Frisco, 970-668-5922

“For the money, you just can’t beat Mexico. A package deal including food and entertainment can be very good value, and means you don’t have to worry about organizing anything.”

” Amy, Breckenridge Travel, Breckenridge, 970-453-6810

“A cruise in Mexico is a great option. Cruise providers such as NCL or Carnival are both excellent choices.”

” Carrie, The Memory Maker, Leadville, 719-486-3718

“Italy is probably the most popular honeymoon choice within Europe, and would fit this price. Most people traveling there enjoy the freedom of having no set itinerary, just traveling as the mood takes them. It’s also incredibly romantic!”

” Linda, Overland and Express Travel, Edwards, 970-926-9206

“St. Thomas, one of the U.S. Virgin Islands, is really beautiful. You could rent a beach-side cottage there. It’s also great if you’re into diving or sailing. The shopping is good too.”

” Jeanette, Peak Experience Travel Inc, Buena Vista, 719-395-8677

“I’d suggest Hawaii for that type of budget. Eco-tourism has become a big draw, with activities like whale and dolphin watching. Very friendly and welcoming people, too, which is always important.”

” Suzi, Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Frisco, 970-668-5922

“Again, I’d recommend Mexico. If you’ve got more to spend, go for a five- or six-star hotel with great food and views. Palladium resorts have some particularly beautiful resorts.”

” Amy, Breckenridge Travel, Breckenridge, 970-453-6810

“For that money, I’d suggest a cruise in Alaska. It’s a really different destination choice, totally unforgettable. Celebrity provides cruises to Alaska, as well as other locations.”

” Carrie, The Memory Maker, Leadville, 719-486-3718

“My own choice would be either Fiji or Tahiti. The people in both are incredibly friendly, and the scenery is unbelievable. You won’t forget a trip to either of these.”

” Linda, Overland and Express Travel, Edwards, 970-926-9206

“Italy is really popular just now, so maybe a tour of Europe spending some time there. Elsewhere in Europe, the Czech Republic is definitely worth a look, amazing architecture and culture. That would be my choice.”

” Jeanette, Peak Experience Travel Inc, Buena Vista, 719-395-8677

“A Sandles resort in Jamaica. I’d put together a package including diving and other activities, tailored to the honeymooners’ interests. The white sand beaches are legendary.”

” Suzi, Carlson Wagonlit Travel, Frisco, 970-668-5922

“With an unlimited budget, I’d choose Hawaii. The beaches are wonderful, and I’ve only ever heard good things from those who’ve been

there!”

” Amy, Breckenridge Travel, Breckenridge, 970-453-6810

“If money isn’t an issue, maybe a tour of Europe. Or perhaps a safari tour somewhere in Africa, South Africa is where I’d recommend.”
