Hawaii

Hawaii is an obvious choice for many couples, and it’s easy to see why. The weather is warm year-round, the people are kind and welcoming, and the natural beauty of the islands is unsurpassed. In addition, Hawaii is an easy place to travel to for many people, meaning that it’s likely to be a honeymoon destination that you and your partner have both dreamed of visiting. If you’re planning a trip to Hawaii, you have a ton of options—from the islands themselves (think Maui, Oahu, Kauai, etc.) to the activities you can do while you’re there. If you’re looking for something a bit more remote, you can also choose to visit one of Hawaii’s many outer islands like Molokai, Lanai, or Niihau.

Bora Bora

Bora Bora is often considered the honeymoon destination of choice for the rich and famous. It’s easy to see why when you look at the sheer beauty of the place. Bora Bora is a remote island nestled in the South Pacific, meaning that it’s removed from the chaos and hustle of everyday life. You’ll have a hard time finding many other honeymoon destinations that offer the level of tranquility that Bora Bora does. In addition, Bora Bora is home to several luxurious five-star resorts that make for a honeymoon that you and your partner won’t soon forget. Bora Bora is also a great honeymoon destination for the adventurous, as it’s possible to explore the island by boat and scuba dive through the world’s largest Coral Reef nearby.

Akumal Mexico, best destinations for a honeymoon

Riviera Maya, Mexico

When most people think of a honeymoon in Mexico, they think of Cancun or Cabo. While these are both excellent choices for honeymoons, I am going to focus on a lesser-known option: the Riviera Maya. This section of the Yucatan Peninsula is home to several beautiful beaches and the famous Mayan ruins at Coba. In addition, the Riviera Maya is home to a thriving tourist industry, meaning that you can find plenty of excellent hotels and restaurants to stay at and eat at during your visit. With its excellent weather, beautiful beaches, and ancient Mayan history, the Riviera Maya is a fantastic option for a honeymoon in Mexico.

Key Tips For Planning Your Dream Honeymoon

– Talk to each other. The best way to start planning your honeymoon is to talk to each other. You and your partner may have very different ideas about what the perfect honeymoon would look like, so it’s important to have an open and honest conversation about what each of you wants out of the trip.

– Set a budget. No matter how much you’re willing to spend on your honeymoon, it’s important to set a budget. Honeymoons are an expensive trip. Be willing to compromise; less number of nights, less costly room category, etc., to stay within your budget.

-Find a travel specialist to work with, who knows the destination. They will provide you with invaluable information, recommendations, and insight you will not get researching or booking online.

Your honeymoon is an opportunity to relax, unwind, and focus on each other. When you get married, the focus is on the wedding and the honeymoon is sometimes put on the back burner. However, it is important to plan for your honeymoon, so you both get the most out of it. There are many different options when it comes to planning a honeymoon. With these tips and some destination inspiration, you can plan the best honeymoon ever!
