Continuing the Celebration
What makes a honeymoon special? This once-in-a-lifetime trip will put a cap on your wedding celebration and mark the beginning of your lives as a married couple. It should be relaxing and romantic, and reflect your personalities and the things you enjoy doing together.
For some couples, the perfect honeymoon destinations will be places they can go to feel perfectly pampered and enjoy the luxury treatment. But other couples may crave more of a sense of adventure. Some couples will enjoy a quiet, private vacation in a secluded area, while others love the thrill of a busy big city. Think about what makes the two of you the happiest, and plan your trip around it.
All-Inclusive Honeymoon Resorts & Destinations
For the couple that wants maximum luxury and minimal stress, an all-inclusive resort is the way to go. The resort will provide all meals and drinks, and will help you arrange all the excursions and fun activities you have in mind. If enjoying a few cocktails while on your honeymoon is a must, ensure that your inclusive package includes alcoholic beverages. When it comes to honeymoon destinations, all-inclusive resorts let you avoid all the stress of planning and just focus on enjoying yourself.
According to Islands.com, some of the highest-ranked all-inclusive resorts for 2017 are Sandals Emerald Bay in the Bahamas, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in Mexico, and Cayo Espanto in Belize. These resorts all offer varying degrees of privacy and remoteness, but all will provide an incredibly indulgent and relaxing experience.
