Jamaica, Dominican, or Mexico?!

Hello future brides!

My fiancé and I are trying to decide where to go on our honeymoon in January, but there are so many options its hard to decide! We want to go somewhere that neither of us have been before so we can both experience it for the first time together! That being said, that knocks off a few popular destinations in Mexico including PV, Cancun & Playa del Carmen, Huatulco, and Ixtapa. We're looking at 5 star all-inclusive resorts (preferably adults only) in a few places and might have it narrowed down to Negril, Montego Bay, Punta Cana, or Los Cabos.. but at this point we are still open to suggestions!! I would love it if anyone could help an indecisive girl out! Smiley smile Bonus points if you can give some insight into the differences in weather between the destinations I listed!

    We are leaning towards a Secrets Resort! I have heard amazing things about them!

    My family is from Jamaica and I dont recommend it in January, you won't get the best weather.


    I have been to Punta Cana and it's amazing! However never in January so not sure what the weather is like then. From a quick Google search looks like January is the driest month for Punta Cana, so you'll like avoid the rain.

    I can second this. The best time to go to Jamaica is April - July! In January it is very windy and the temp only gets to the mid to high 20s.

    I will say though my favourite resort in Mexico is the secrets hotel chain. It was absolutely amazing. And they had really nice honeymoon rooms!

    We are planning on going to Dominican in November! We looked at those places as well but we have both been to Mexico so much! My fiancés mom lived in the Dominican for a few years so my fiancé has been there a few times and loved it! Plus it’s pretty inexpensive and your still getting the Caribbean beaches and water!

    I've been to Jamacia in January and the weather wasn't great. Personally I would not recommend going then!

    We just booked our honeymoon to Jamaica for this November!! We are super excited. My sister has been to the exact resort that we are going to and she had the best time. Plus the reviews were really good!

    My family has been frequenting PV for YEARS...I mean 2 weeks, every year for like 10 in a row growing up, and my folks now live there 4 months out of the year (Jan - April) - we love it. Granted, we have only ever done an all-inclusive there 1x in Mexico, and that was Cabo (also beautiful), as we like to explore, and have never felt anything but safe in PV.

    I have been to a few all-inclusives in DR, but was never really blown away by the food, and we were warned not to even walk to the disco down the road, at night, as tourists - take a cab.|

    Have you looked at the Maldives, Mallorca, or Bali?

    I had a friend do Costa Rica, she said it was amazing and the weather was great. I have an other friend doing the DR in 2 weeks for her honeymoon and apparently it’s amazing according to mutual friends who have been there.


    For my own honeymoon we are planning Montego Bay. I reminds me of a more cost friendly Bora Bora, I’m so excited to go! I have a list of places that I’m gonna book early next year!
