10 money-saving honeymoons
It's not often that "once-in-a-lifetime" and "bargain" can be packaged in the same sentence, but that's the experience you'll get at the Kapawi Ecolodge and Reserve. Tucked away in a secluded corner of the Ecuadoran rain forest, it is only accessible by boat. There are 20 thatched cottages, built on stilts, and powered by solar energy. The accommodations aren't exactly luxurious, but they are uniquely cool and comfortable. For about $1,400 per person, you'll get a week's stay, meals, and personalized excursions into the jungle. Named one of the best 90 hotels in "Great Escapes around the World," the Kapawi is unique even by eco-tourism standards. Canodros, a company renowned for its Galapagos expeditions, provided the initial start up, and its management and ownership was transferred to the indigenous Achaur people on January 1, 2008.
