Belated Honeymoon... October. No idea where to go.

Help!

We got married in october last year and had no money to do a honeymoon (we got married in spain so not too bad!)

Anyway we have decided to do a trip for our anniversary last week september 1st week october. Kind of a belated honeymoon!

We are beach addicts. We originally hoped to go to cancun or other mexico. We had actually picked out the moon palace and were ready to go and put a deposit down but from what i read, Mexico and carribean, their rainy season is around this time.

With the troubles in Egypt and the fact we have already done Thailand... We are struggling to think of some sun to seek!

It will be just the two of us and our budget is about 2k total for the trip (not including spending cash)

Any advice would be ace....

Cheers Guys...

I was going to suggest a Malaysian island such as Penang or Langkawi but again although its hot there can also be heavy rainfall, but its is worth looking into.

Bali will be more than doable on your budget but again look into rainfall which starts in October.

Mauritius is doable with a little bit above your budget. Check on Expedia, 2 weeks with flights and a hotel such as Pereybere Hotel & Apartments for just over 2K.

Cheers folks.... Will look at a few of them. We are coming from the uk so the moon may be a slight stretch, although we went to Venus two years ago and it wasn't all that.

Although 2K may not sound a lot, a far haul tropical destination is definitely doable as long you know it will be 3/4 stars or budget style accommodation.

Why spend so much time and money getting to your honemoon resort.

Kefalonia or other Greek islands are still warm/hot end of September and many have great beaches!!

How about beautiful Santorini? Not too far, some lovely accommodation, a bit of history, a bit of culture, great food and amazing views! I think it will fit your budget too and the weather should be alright at the end of September. I loved the place!

This time of the year is good for Kenya coast, have a look if any packages are offered within your budget, with your budget you will be looking at a big resort . If you manage to find a little extra you can also go for 2-3 days safari to Tsavo East - only 2-3 hours drive from the coast.

Obvious places are also Sechelles and Mauritius, not sure about the budget though.

The best thing about all these places - no jet lag!

Good luck in planning and have fun!
