Planning and executing a wedding is a huge task. Once the main event is over, you deserve to give yourself and your partner a chance to unwind.
Before you dive into married life, take advantage of the opportunity to seek out once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Find something off the beaten path by checking out some of the most underrated places to go on a honeymoon.
Sure, you can book a beach holiday in Hawaii or Miami like everyone else, or you can discover the beautiful culture and landscape of the Caribbean during your honeymoon. Don’t hesitate to apply for your passport so you can explore the pristine beaches and lush jungles of islands such as St. Martin and Barbados. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a way to visit as many islands as possible, you can join one of the popular Southern Caribbean cruises.
Some of the highlights you can expect to experience in the Caribbean include:
Ziplining over majestic forests
Dancing to live steel pan music
Dine on delicious fresh seafood
Explore underground caves
While Disney movies might appeal mostly to children, a honeymoon at Disney World is very much adult-friendly. Disney’s Orlando resorts are known for world-class hospitality, food, and entertainment. You don’t even have to be a huge Disney fan to enjoy the theme park and the surrounding city. From the magnificent safari rides in the Animal Kingdom to the international showcases at Epcot, Disney World offers a huge variety of activities to take part in, which will make your honeymoon that much more memorable.
Paris and Rome usually sit at the top of the list for the most well-known romantic cities, but Tokyo is where you have to go if you want to make lifelong memories on your honeymoon. The sprawling capital of Japan has everything you could want out of a destination holiday. There’s endless shopping, amazing food, fascinating culture, and fantastic nightlife.
If you have extra time for your trip, add a short stay in the northern city of Sapporo and a few days in Kyoto to your itinerary. By visiting a few other locations, you’ll have an opportunity to take in historic sites as well as gorgeous views of Japan’s picturesque natural scenery.
If you and your partner love nature and adventure, you have to visit Nepal on your honeymoon. You might know Nepal as the home of Mount Everest, but this Himalayan country has so much more to offer.
Book a stay at a five-star hotel in Kathmandu to enjoy luxury and culture as you take a tour of the centuries-old historic sites at the heart of the city. Then travel up into the hills to visit an organic farm and stay overnight to enjoy Nepalese hospitality at its best. From incredibly diverse cuisine to world-class hiking, Nepal is a hidden gem in Asia that you won’t want to miss.
Another underrated travel destination for your honeymoon is Morroco. This nation in North Africa sits on the Mediterranean and is so close to Spain that you can travel between the two countries in one day. Morroco has a unique culture where you can see both European and Islamic influences on the food, architecture, and lifestyle. Two places that you need to include in your itinerary are romantic Casablanca and quaint Marrakech.
To book a trip where you can experience romance in a high-end resort and adventure in the jungle, you can’t ignore Costa Rica. The Central American nation has some of the most beautiful rainforests in the world and also some of the best beaches. You can even book a room with your own pool for an exquisite honeymoon experience.
Don’t settle for a bland trip when it comes to your honeymoon. Take your time when it comes to planning so that you can craft an experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
