Our Favorite Honeymoon Destinations

No comments

One of the first things a bride or groom probably fantasizes about is the honeymoon, because where you stay is just about as important as celebrating those first special moments together.

Have you ever heard your friends tell you of a trip that went incredibly wrong, how their room wasn’t what they saw on the internet, or worse yet there was no beach at the resort? We’ve all heard nightmares about a vacation gone wrong and your honeymoon is certainly not the time for that to happen.

When my husband and I were planning our honeymoon with our local travel planner, we had a few things in mind.  My husband was in the military, so he had some travel abroad already under his belt. I had moved quite a bit around the states, so I was really looking for something outside the US.  We both liked to travel and we both decided we wanted a warm location.  For me, one of things was being able to see and do as much as possible in one trip and ultimately our planner steered us away from a single island stay to a Southern Caribbean cruise.  With my husband planning on going back to school, we knew it would be some time before we would get to travel again.  Her guidance was perfect and we visited 6 beautiful islands during our honeymoon.

Many things will all come into play when picking your ideal destination like: weather, time of year, your activity desires, your desire for culture, and your food desires.

The best way to make sure you pick the destination that matches your personality is to work with a travel planner.  To help you discover your perfect place, we’d like to share our top Incredible Favorite Honeymoon Escapes.
