need honeymoon ideas

I'm getting married next June and just starting to look at honeymoon destinations.  I'm thinking we are going for the more "relaxing on the beach" vibe as opposed to an all-out adventure style honeymoon.  Probably looking to spend around $3k.

 

I'm kind of overwhelmed by all the options and am looking for any advice from those with experience.

 

Some places I want to look into are Negril, Bermuda, Dominican.  I definitely want to avoid Mexico.  I'm a little paranoid about getting in the middle of a cartel shootout.

The coastal towns of Mexico (Cancun, Cozumel) are still very safe. At least I hope they are because I am going there in a couple months.

I urge you to reconsider on mexico... well-priced and as long as you don't go venturing on your own away from the resort areas, no one is getting kidnapped.

This.

My wife and I had our honeymoon at Sandals Negril. It was incredible.

Everyone there was couples (no singles allowed at Sandals) and about 75% of the people were on their honeymoon.

Cozumel is great for scuba diving. But I would not go if I did not dive. Beaches are iffy...most are rocky as the reef is do close to the shore.

You seem more like a Gatlinburg honeymoon type of guy.

I've been 3 times and love Mexico. I agree that the beaches aren't that great but I just like to go to the resort and lay by the pool and drink the day away.

 

The trip me and my GF are going on (Playa del Carmen) was only $600 a person for 5 nights and that is all inclusive with nonstop airfare out of Charlotte. It's hard to find the flight alone for that price. Mexico is just so d*mn cheap and they treat you like gold down there.

Aruba is my favorite place I have ever been. Absolutely loved it there and teared up when it was time to leave.
