Babymoon Destinations

Hi YNABers,

 

Not directly related to the budget, but I'd love to hear suggestions for babymoon locations. We're planning on taking one in January and are hoping to go somewhere warm and zika free. We have about $2000 saved so far (thanks YNAB) and are forecasting having $4000 by January, although if we don't use it all that's great too. What destinations are in your wish farm? What are some past favorites? Thanks!

  • St. Maarten is one of my favorites. I've only visited while on a cruise (which is my absolute favorite way to vacation), but it was so gorgeous! Congratulations!

  • Take a cruise. See the ice bucket in my avatar. Mrs. nolesrule and I are doing a 12-nighter to the Southern Caribbean in January leaving from up here.

    Although cruiselines usually have a limit on pregnancies. I think it's 24 to 26 weeks depending on the cruise line.

    Whatever you do, buy travel insurance to cover non-refundable expenses.

    Hawaii is lovely when we're not being buffeted by tropical storms! You don't have to stay in Waikiki if you're not interested in the touristy side of Oahu and instead you can stay on the North Shore! Also Maui is wonderful and so is the Big Island!

    Have a wonderful time on your Babymoon!

    • Ben K. A babymoon is a vacation you take before the arrival of a new family addition. :)

      Faness Thanks. I'm just old. My work management tries to sound up to date, but they're old too, so it's just weird. They'll send out emails like, "I have a big ask for you." or "Practice your I can today" and I'm thinking what's happening now!
