With so many amazing places across the world, it can be hard to decide just where to go, but we have some great suggestions to help. Whether you want a beach destination, a mountainous retreat, a city of culture and light, or something comfortably in between there is somewhere for everyone. Here are some of the best honeymoon destinations, in our opinion, in the world.
Best Honeymoon Destinations in Mexico
Cancun – Cancun is the party center of Mexico, but it also has some of the most stunning beaches in the country (if not the world) as well as some of the most luxurious resorts. If we had to sum up the Cancun experience it would be “living the high life.” Few cities are as well suited to a honeymoon getaway than Cancun
Puerto Vallarta – Puerto Vallarta was made famous by the spirited, if somewhat doomed, romance of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, and has garnered a reputation as a romantic hotspot. This is a city of love and culture; a stroll along the Malecon will yield romance, certainly, but you’ll also see some of the art that dots the city.
Cabo – Los Cabos is the ultimate destination for those who want culture and watersports side by side. Snorkelling, swimming with whale sharks, and diving can be found here just as easily as you can find art galleries and historic attractions.
Best Honeymoon Destinations in Europe
Barcelona – Barcelona is a bustling centre of architecture and art in Europe, and is filled with the work of modernist visionary Antoni Gaudi. The keyword here is “culture”, and those who seek vibrancy and art will find modern art museums featuring Fundació Joan Miró and Museu Picasso.
Paris – The City of Light is known as the epicentre of love and romance in Europe, but it’s also somewhat of a foodie’s paradise. French cuisine doesn’t come more authentic than this; make sure you stop at some landmarks as you make your way round the cafes and eateries, however.
Venice – Venice is one of a kind, this is something that no-one will dispute. Venice is a city made for romantic nights; in the glaring light of day it’s carnival atmosphere seems endearingly shabby and well-loved, but at night the canals and walkways ooze romance and seduction. St Mark’s Basilica is a must see.
Best Honeymoon Destinations for Mountain Escapes
Aspen – Aspen is the US’ very own active-honeymoon mecca; tucked into the Rocky Mountains of Colorado Aspen offers year round outdoor recreation and enchanting streets. This is a town with a history, certainly, but Aspen is living its glory days now. If you love to explore this should be your go to honeymoon destination.
Switzerland – Switzerland may be one of the smaller countries in the world, but it’s influence far outweighs its mere size. In Switzerland you will find the Alps, and all they entail; Ski trips, mulled wine, hot-tubs in the snow, stunning scenery, and some of the best chocolate in the world.
