Stumped on where to go on your honeymoon? We have you covered. Deciding where to go can be frustrating with so many options, but we’ve put together a list of must-see spots guaranteed to be not only romantic, but totally memorable too.
Talk about romantic — Curaçao feels like your own bit of undiscovered paradise. The unique Caribbean destination offers sun, sand and surf, along with a rich history and some of the best diving in the world. The Dutch influence on the island gives the area a decidedly European flavor, and the capital city of Willemsted is a lively port that’s one of only six UNESCO World Heritage sites in the Caribbean. So whether you want to lounge on a sugar-sand beach, swim and snorkel in crystal blue waters or soak up the culture, you won’t be stuck for what to do on Curaçao.
If you feel like going somewhere a little different, versatile Thailand could be for you. Spend some time beach-hopping in the south until you find the perfect spot of sand (we fell in love with Khao Lak), hit up Bangkok for great food (both world class restos and delicious street food), fabulous shopping (malls and markets abound) and museums and temples, or head to Chiang Mai for its proximity to great hiking and other outdoor adventures, laid-back vibe and small but chic boutique hotels and guesthouses.
Portugal is popping up on more than a few must-visit lists — with good reason. There’s something for everyone in this multifaceted country and honeymooners can enjoy everything from sun-kissed beaches and secluded villages to charming cities featuring endless opportunities to wander cobblestone streets, stopping in cafes and great restaurants for a glass of wine and a memorable meal.
You’ll find this honeymoon hotspot in the middle of the Indian Ocean and it offers honeymooners the chance to really embrace luxury and seclusion in one of the most gorgeous places we can think of. The Maldives is a series of coral islands surrounded by deep blue water, perfect beaches and awe-inspiring natural beauty. Take your pick between larger resorts and smaller, more eco-conscious spots depending on what you’re after.
Forget Cancun and instead focus on all the other fabulous spots along the Riviera Maya. Beaches abound, as do opportunities for swimming, snorkeling and diving. Check out interesting archeological sites (put Tulum on your list), hit the spa, immerse yourself in nature (the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is a must) and shop, sip cocktails and enjoy great food along La Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue), the main pedestrian walkway in Playa Del Carmen.
