honeymoon locations

Hi ladies, FI and I are looking into honeymoon locations and I wanted to see if anyone has been to any of the places.

Our original idea was St. Lucia or Antigua.  We do not have a specific resort picked out - so any info would be great.

Then the travel agent got us looking to Costa Rica - more specifically the occidental grand papagayo

If you have been to one of these places, do you have any thoughts (good or bad) TIA!

    I've been to CR, but not the area you mentioned. However, it was a beautiful country, knowing very little Spanish was fine and the people were super friendly!

    We are going to St. Lucia for ours, through Sandals and I've heard great things. We were looking into Costa Rica as well but are getting married in October and apparently thats a rainy month there but it looked beautiful. Good luck!

    My brother had a destination wedding in St. Lucia --- I think it was Sandals Regency (there are two, maybe even three on the island). 

    It was nice, a little bit older then some all inclusives, but clean and beautiful!  Not a huge nightlife, short beach (most people hang by the pool), all the regular catamaran and all that kind of stuff to do.  It was fairly affordable as well, but not the most upscale.

    We looked into doing Costa Rica, but it is expensive!  We were looking at an adventure honeymoon though (ziplining, quad riding, rafting) though... but my best friend went this year and RAVED about CR!

    Thanks Ladies! We are leaning toward CR which is actually cheaper than St. Lucia's for what we our travel agent gave us.  Then save for a few years and go to St. Lucia for a shorter trip.
