Now, I know honeymoons are supposed to be romantic, exotic and relaxing. In fact, most folks opt for a week of beach time and fruity umbrella drinks...unfortunately most people can't afford a fancy resort experience after an expensive wedding. So when this came over the email transit today from Travelzoo, I thought I would pass it along.
This is not an endorsement as I have never been to this Dominican Republic resort - I did however spend a gorgeous 5 days at a small Punta Cana resort a few years ago - BUT it could be worth checking out. The DR is an excellent choice for a honeymoon because of its relative closeness to the US, the deals that are always available at resorts, and the people of the island who are welcoming and kind.
As always, read ALL the recent reviews, do your research on the net at review sites, and use common sense.
