Mike and I are thinking of going to Cuba. Or, somewhere in the Carribean. I know a LOT of people I know have been to Cuba, so! Where did you go? What was your experience like? Would you recommend it? I reaaallllyyyy wanna feel like a posh princess: I absolutely do not want one of those 'rough it' trips. Sometimes I'm in the mood for those, sometimes I'm not. This is one of those cases where I absolutely just wanna relax, chill in the pool, drink like a fish, and be pampered. Is Cuba wrong for that? Are we better off going to Mexico?

I was also thinking Dominican Republic, or even Panama! I am dying to go to Panama, but apparently it takes a REALLY long time to get to, and the particular resort I want is really far from the airport (about 2 hours), so you spend an entire day traveling there and an entire day traveling back home. Ick.

Costa Rica is unfortunately out of our budget, and we've already been to Jamaica, and I think that pretty much covers all the resort places in the Carribean (not counting, of course, the SUPER expensive places I don't think I'll EVER see in this lifetime, such as Turks & Caicos, Saint Lucia, US Virgin Islands, etc.) We have to go to an all-inclusive as we are both super low on cash. We were originally gonna go to Europe, but as cheap as it is right now, we can't even afford that, so all-inclusives it is, which of course limits us to the Carribean.

Anyway, *tl;dr version*: any suggestions for all-inclusivies in the Carribean, particularly Cuba or Mexico?

Gracias! ;)


NEVER MIND! I AM GOING TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC!!!!!!!!! (TO PUNTA CANA, TO BE PRECISE) APRIL 11TH-18TH!!!!! OMFG I AM SO EXCITED I AM GOING TO THROW UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Are you talking Cuba for your honeymoon, or some other time? Because May- October is hurricane season in all the Carribean... When I went 2 years ago, we went to Cayo Coco, which was really nice. But from what I understand, the beaches in Varadero are BEAUTIFUL...
Whenever you go, though, I would strongly advise against Mexico - way too dangerous nowadays...

It's for an 'early Honeymoon' (seriously, loooooong & boring story). We're going April 11th to the 18th. I know hurricane season is coming up, but it's still early enough in the year that we should be OK. :)

I agree with you on Mexico, btw! It's sad, but true...:(

April 11? That's right around the corner, and the weather is fantastic at that time of year! Definitely go to Varadero! I would say the Sandals resort I'll be going to in December, but it's probably out of your price range... I'll ask around and get back to you with some resort names soon - yay, Cuba!

I've only heard good things so far (about both the country and the resort we're going to), so I'm VERY giddy and excited!!! :)
