Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Located on the eastern edge of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is home to over 500,000 hotel rooms and is world-renowned for its great all-inclusive resorts. What’s more is that most of the all-inclusive resorts offer awesome adventure tours, such as ATVing, horseback riding, and ziplining.
For added fun, plan your Honeymoon around a major festival such as the Carnival (early March), the Punta Cana Food & Wine Festival (May and June), or the December Golf Classic.

Turks and Caicos
If you’re looking for a luxury all-inclusive for your Honeymoon, Turks and Caicos is a great place to consider. The entire island is incredibly picturesque, but I recommend picking accommodation in Providenciales — a traveler’s mecca with beautiful beaches and luxury amenities. While honeymooning on Turks and Caicos, go horseback riding in the ocean, pay a visit to the ever-stunning Grace Bay, and book yourself a Glow Worm tour.

St. Lucia is one of the most stunning Caribbean destinations I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting, and it’s great for couples! While there, you’ll definitely want to visit Castries Market (go on an empty stomach), hike Pigeon Island National Park, and take a mud bath with your partner in Sulfur Springs.

Comprised of over 1000 islands in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives is famous for its dreamy beaches, sandbars, and extensive reefs — so if you’re looking for somewhere you and your partner can experience top-notch diving, this is an excellent choice. Another key facet of the Maldives fame is the over-water bungalows, of which there are plenty. If you can, get a bungalow with a glass floor so you can watch the sea life swim by!

Italy is one of the most romantic countries in the world, and the region of Tuscany is perfect for adventurous couples looking to explore the art, architecture, and cuisine of the region. I recommend taking some time to explore the capital of the region, Florence, before going on a food tour through the region, visiting the Monti dell’Uccellina coastline, checking out the art museums, sampling the wine, and taking touristy photos in Pisa.

The island of Bali is arguably Indonesia’s most famous destination, and for good reason. This stunning island is made up of picturesque volcanoes, rice fields, beaches, and coral reefs.

Home to diverse scenery such as mountains, rainforest, waterfalls, cities, and beaches, Puerto Rico is a dream destination for Honeymooners on a budget. This Caribbean island also packs a punch when it comes to culture, as its home to a blend of both native and international influences and traditions.

Compared to similar Caribbean destinations with higher price points, St. Maarten is a gem that’s easy on the wallet. This mountain-rich Dutch region is also super tourist-friendly with plenty of shops, guided activities, and nightlife options. In St. Maarten, go hiking in Guana Bay, watch the planes at Maho Bay Beach, trek to Pic Paradis to get an overhead look of the island, and visit Fort Amsterdam.

One of the most budget-friendly Honeymoon destinations in the southern USA, the Florida Keys are perfect if you’re looking for a low-key beach getaway. While there, hop on a glass-bottom boat in John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, dive the Molasses Reef, visit the Everglades, go see Crocodiles (with a guide), and eat your weight in Key Lime Pie. If you’re looking to further stretch your budget, head to the Florida Keys in the summer months – the humidity will be higher, but the number of visitors drops off significantly.

Located in the Indian Ocean, the island of Mauritius is known for its azure waters, fabulous hiking, striking mountains, and snorkeling and scuba opportunities.

The British Virgin Islands
Consisting of the four main islands of Tortola, Virgin Gorda, Anegada, and Jost Van Dyke, the British Virgin Islands is a volcanic archipelago sitting east of Puerto Rico. The islands are great for those looking to get in touch with nature as, unlike many over-developed Caribbean islands, you’ll find the British Virgin Islands to be largely untouched. That said, the amenities and towns that the islands do have will delight you with splashes of local culture and friendliness. Honeymooners should explore the islands by checking out the baths on Virgin Gorda, trying the local food and beer on Tortola, getting a taste for conch, doing some water sports, and swimming in Cow Wreck Bay.
