Former Travel Agent checking in.
July in Cancun would be off season because a) It’s so damn hot and b) it’s warm in the US so why go there.
So if you do go there, you will probably be able to get some pretty decent rates at the hotels, but the airfare ( if there are any package plans in the summer through tour companies - tour companies -sell air/hotel/transfers, usually much much cheaper than if you book everything seperately on your own. Well worth a look.) Check with a Travel agent and surf the web for stuff.
We honeymooned in Cancun. Very nice. Highly recommend the sex (We stayed at the Cancun Palace, which is now all inclusive, a five star hotel. The only five star stay of our marriage. See below)
Ask yourself and your bride:What do you want to do and see on your honeymoon ( besides that) and how much do you want to spend on air, accomodations, sight seeing and food. Set a budget and stick too it.
To me, it is not a vacation if it doesn’t involve an airplane ride, but that is just me. Driving vacation is an oxymoron, in my book.
Is it more important to stay somewhere really nice and eat inexpensively? Or you do you want to see alot of stuff or buy alot of stuff and can do the more economic hotels? (The last one is the manra of the Ujest’s) Travel and Sleep cheap, see more. Mooch off of friends and family and see even more! (This might not be kosher for a honeymoon, but hey, if you’ve ever had a hankerin’ to see Oxford, Michigan, you can honeymoon in my basement. Just think of the stories to tell your grandchildren!)
Cruises are one of the best deals for your money with four or five destinations and all your meals included and you only have to unpack once.
Europe is in high season for July, so the airfare (whereever you are located in the US) are going to be up the butt prices and hotels are at the bend over prices. The crowds for London and Paris are at a peak. So think about that too, all those smelly foreigners… and loud obnoxious Americans…
Personally, Disney will always be there. Save it for your first anniversary trip. ( Go once before kids. Then go again when the kids are old enough to go on all the big rides.Trust me on this, do you really want to pay a truck load of money to drag a toddler around the kiddie section and not be able to hit the big kid rides with your wife because someone has to stay with Muffy and Thad?)
The one mantra that I told every client that is so true in travel: **Take half the clothes and twice the money. **
