We are looking at Mexico (playa del carmen) for our Sept. honeymoon, but it is hurricane season, so we are a little nervous about that. But it has everything we want--Mayan Ruins, zip lines, hikes, scuba lessons, great snorkeling, Cozumel, etc. We also found that the resorts that are in our budget are quite nice in this area of Mexico. Our back up plan is Aruba, as it is out of the hurricane belt, but it is more expensive and seems to have less to do.
Anybody have experience with Aruba? Or Mexico during the hurricane season? In your opinions (and experiences!) would you say to spend a thousand dollars less and go to the place we really want to go and risk bad weather, or pay more and go to where we know we will have good weather but maybe not as much fun?
