So I'm starting to think of ideas of what to do next year as my husband and I will have been married for 10 years.

Our anniversary is in November but for now, I am in school which complicates thing so I was thinking either:
1) Short US based trip around Thanksgiving
or
2) longer trip but would need to be in August

I think europe tends to be more empty in August with some things closed? We'd also want a very vegan friendly place where we wouldn't have to drive. I thought of Costa Rica but august is hurricane season ?

In the US, we could drive but would still want a very vegan friendly place. I know it would be cold in November which would rule out hiking and some other things in parts of the US.

So I'm a bit torn.

Another alternative would be to make a stopover trip in San Francisco/Northern California mid December and hopefully work wouldn't notice we were both gone for 3 weeks :) (2 weeks to visit my parents after)

Any recommendations? Ideas?

For a shorter trip- New Orleans? Take a train to NYC? I went to Mexico last November and the weather in Mexico City was basically perfect, and at least from Chicago there are plenty of direct flights that are only about 3.5 hours, and cheaper than flying many places in The US, but I don't know if those things would be true for you.

How did you find Mexico city for vegan friendliness? I've been to the coastal parts of Mexico but never inland and I wasn't vegan last time I went. I'd also like to visit Oaxaca if we go.

I've been eyeing up this place in Grenada for my honeymoon next year: Mango Bay. The place has a veggie restaurant on site, which is all vegan apart from optional cheese on a couple of things, I have discovered.

Although it's in the Caribbean, Grenada isn't in the hurricane belt so it's super rare for it to get hit with storms.

Oh that looks lovely.

Dishes... Stove, pots and pans and it is pretty inexpensive. That may be a definite contender. Now I just have to figure out when and how.

Glad you like the look of it! Yes, it is very reasonable, especially compared to something like a big resort, which is not my cup of tea, anyway! I wanted to stay at a veggie hotel particularly and, as far as I could find, it's one of the only ones in the caribbean, apart from one in the $1000 per night kind of range. Eeek!

Many years ago, someone I knew went to Jamaica and I asked them about their trip, they ended up telling me they were told it wasn't safe to leave the resort, so they never did it. It kind of made me a bit sad and not something I'd want so something like this seems perfect. And I'm not a lay on the beach and drink all day long type of person anyway.

I think it is also hurricane season in southern Mexico at the time you want to go, but the Osa Mariposa is where I've picked for my birthday next year. I'm so excited... the food looks amazing! It's a hostel, but you can get private rooms, & I think they have a few rooms in the main structure that they offer as more of a bed and breakfast kind of thing. I'm going a year from December; Puerto Escondido looks so fun!
