Babymoon suggestions please

Hi guys,

Update: Me and my husband are planning a babymoon in Jan. we’re located in Toronto and would loveee to go somewhere 3-4 hours away to a nice warm beachy resort. Considering Bahamas (as it’s Zika free).

Our budget is CAD1500-1700 for 7 nights for all inclusive resorts including flights.
Would love to hear your suggestions.

This. Stay in Canada/US if you can. We went to NY for ours.

Florida is not safe for zika neither, so does Bermuda.
Hawaii is zika safe but not within OP's budget.

Does using #babymoon on IG get more likes or something?

Our budget is CAD1000 for 7 nights for all inclusive resorts and have sufficient Amex points to cover our flight. Willing to stretch budget till CAD 1500 including all expenses (+ticket)

Would love to hear your suggestions.
I usually find it doesn't make sense to use points for the flight. The package including the flight won't be substantially more than booking hotel only. $1000 seems very low. You could look at Vegas. Not as warm and beachy but also a good last chance without kids place.

As others said finding out the latest on Zika important.

No it's just what it's called. Words have meanings and this means a trip when pregnant. Usually between 3 and 7 months when you no longer should fly.

We opted against this and did a "staycation". Spent a few nights at a nice hotel in Downtown Vancouver. Although the thought of a nice warm destination as a couple before the baby arrives is tempting, we felt it's better to remain close to home (and your doctor).

Be sure to check your travel insurance too - coverage may cease after the pregnancy reaches a certain stage.

What about Bahamas? Willing to stretch budget to 1700CAD per person including tickets. Do you know of any good all inclusive resorts/deals there?

I am very fond of cruises and you could do a 7-10 day cruise within your budget if you avoid New Years week. You could sail out of Baltimore/NY if you have Florida Zika concerns.

We just came back from DR - Ocean El Faro, amazing place to baby moon it up. Cost was $1050 pp. Might be $1200 ish in Jan. We booked it 4-5d before travel. Not sure if they are Zika free too.

What’s with all the troll responses? If you don’t know what a babymoon is, or don’t want kids yourself, why bother replying? The OP is asking a specific question. You can quite easily do a Google search for the word ‘babymoon’. Obviously the OP doesn’t think that having a child is a life ruining event. Derrrrrrp.
