For any couple, it is imperative that their honeymoon is a blissful experience and a cherished memory for every couple. However, mishaps are common during any vacation, and most happen due to a lack of proper planning.
Honeymoon destinations offer unique experiences, but not everything that’s new is necessarily good. Therefore, it is crucial that you exercise caution when booking a honeymoon in an unfamiliar country
Here’s what you need to be cautious about:
Know Your Interests
It is wrong to take your partner’s interest for granted while choosing a honeymoon destination.
When choosing a honeymoon location, consult your partner and consider their interests. Make sure they want to participate in the activities available in the location, because otherwise, the whole trip becomes pointless.
It’s important to find a destination that can cater to your needs as well as those of your partner to make sure both of you have a good time. For example, you may be an adventurous person, while your partner may love indoors. Their idea of the perfect honeymoon may be a stay at a luxurious resort with exotic cuisines, comfy beds, excellent spa facilities, and fewer outdoor activities.
If you are looking for adventure, choose honeymoon destinations like Barbados or St. Lucia, where you can enjoy activities like snorkeling, hiking, etc.
Think About the Distance and Time
You need to also think about the distance and time when choosing a honeymoon destination. Think about the length of the trip from your hometown and how far you both want to travel to enjoy your honeymoon.
According to travel experts, the average length of a honeymoon is eight days. But some couples do not have a budget for that. If budgetary constraints do not apply to you, plan a 6–week Europe tour or even a month-long tour across multiple countries.
Think About Weather
The weather of the honeymoon destination is crucial for a blissful experience. You wouldn’t want to go to a place during heavy rains or snowfalls, forcing you to stay indoors.
This is why tropical romantic destinations are ideal for newlyweds. You may visit places like the Bahamas, Jamaica, St. Louis, Bora Bora, Maldives, Hawaii, Antigua, or Bermuda, which have the perfect honeymoon weather almost all throughout the year.
The best times to visit different destinations are listed below:
- Bahamas – mid-December to mid-April
- Maldives- November to April
- Jamaica- November to mid-December
Choose Your Adventure
The best part of the honeymoon is that you get to take part in the adventure together. You may take recommendations from family and friends, but ultimately, you and your partner need to make a final decision on the activities you want to take part in.
Suppose you plan to go to Las Vegas. In that case, you can choose between different activities like a balloon ride over the desert, helicopter tour, high roller observation wheel, or Area 51 tours( if things such as UFOs and space vehicles excite both of you).
Consider Current Events
You also need to consider current events that might affect your travel plans. For example, St Lucia has active volcanoes which are under observation. If there is a travel advisory against visiting any destination, you need to follow it and look for other romantic destinations.
