Where do you want to go for a warm place Honeymooners? Here introduce some to you.
While many European and North American couples opt for a summer wedding and honeymoon, it’s not the best time to travel to many popular honeymoon destinations.
Not only is summer often a more expensive time to travel, but some resorts are packed with kids in July and August, while many regions are in the height of rainy or hurricane seasons well into September.
Choosing a winter honeymoon is savvy for lots of reasons, whether you get away before Christmas, or skip the back to work vibes of the new year.
While it might be harder to shop for a bikini in London or New York in December, once you get away, these destinations offer amazing experiences, ideal weather conditions, and phenomenal accommodation.
Plus, even if you’re not having a fall or winter wedding, delaying a honeymoon after a summer bash will give you both time to save up your spending money, and something to look forward to after your big day.
Still not sure if holding out for a winter honeymoon is right for you?
1. Rio De Janeiro
Copa… Copacabana. While Brazil is a magnificent country to visit any time of the year, if you’re a couple who want a honeymoon that’s all about the fun, the best time to hit up the world capital of partying has got to be summertime in South America.
Glossy and glamorous, yet arty and cool, Miami is the perfect storm of styles for an unforgettable honeymoon in winter.
A big celebrity favourite this year for New Year’s Eve, Miami boasts some of the coolest hotels in the world, setting the bar for luxury, fun, and that iconic art deco style.
Spend the day flaked out on Miami Beach, hit the South Beach bars at night, soak up the vibes in Little Havana, or rent a car and take a drive down the Keys.
Florida might not be your first thought for a romantic Honeymoon, but if you’re looking for something a little bit different, this is just the place.
3. The Caribbean
Another post-Christmas playground of the rich and famous, the islands of the Caribbean offer endless options for a romantic break. As you might remember, we visited Barbados and Antiqua last year, and paired with the likes of St. Lucia, Mustique, St John, or bigger islands like Jamaica, Dominican Republic or Puerto Rico, you can choose a single or multi-destination winter break with guaranteed sunshine.
Boasting world-class resorts, breathtaking beaches, and the friendliest people, a holiday in the Caribbean is about more than just lounging by the pool. Watersports, wildlife, nightlife and great food make this a truly memorable place to visit, and winter is the prime time to do it.
One thing to note though, some Caribbean islands are not as friendly as others to same-sex couples, so check before you travel so you don’t encounter any nastiness on your honeymoon. (We hear Puerto Rico is extremely welcoming to same sex couples!)
