My fiancé wants to go somewhere beachy (we’d be going maybe in January or April). I’d like to spend $2000 max on everything. Has anyone paid around this amount for an international tropical vacay? Can’t believe I’m married now 🥰
Totally! I think if you are willing to put in a little work, it is absolutely doable to get a beach honeymoon (inclusive resort or otherwise) for in/around the $2000 mark. Julie makes a great point about if you’re willing to look at leaving midweek, you can often find cheaper deals as these are less “desirable” airline seats/travel packages. With that, also looking for packages towards the start/end of high season (think October/March for tropical destinations) you can often get packages for much cheaper than if you were trying to book something for Christmas holidays for instance. If you don’t have to be looking to book something right away, you can also sometimes get really killer deals as part of Boxing Day/week/Cyber Monday sales. Another option if you want to take on a little bit more of the planning responsibility then you can look at Airbnb type accommodations and see if there are any economical choices. Usually just by staying in a house and eating local, you can save quite a bit on what you would spend otherwise on food/alcohol costs that would come lumped in with the cost of an all-inclusive. Finally, it may be a bit more of a gamble, but if you and your future spouse have some flexibility in your scheduling and up for an adventure, lots of the time there are amazing deals for last minute packages if you’re okay with booking within the week before you want to leave (just pick a time frame you have off and see what’s available during that time and just go)! Best of luck to you with the honeymoon planning!!
There are definitely packages for under $2000 per couple in January if you look in Expedia. Not sure about all-inclusives and resorts but lots of flights and stays to places like Florida, Houston Texas, and California where you can get the beach experience along with the city for your budget.
