Adventure honeymoons

More and more honeymooners use the word “adventure” when describing their ideal getaway. The week of laying on the beach with a pina colada in hand is wonderful, but most couples say that’s a description of most of the vacations they’ve taken with their families and their partners during their lives. For this vacation, their honeymoon, they want something different. Something more exciting. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, even.

So that’s why more couples are planning their honeymoons with a focus on the kinds of adventures the destination or resort offers them. They might plan their entire trip around a high-adrenaline
sport, or just take one of two days for high adventure … and then spend the rest of the week laying on the beach with that pina colada in hand.
