Budget Honeymoon Destinations in the World
Your honeymoon is your much deserved holiday after all the stress and planning of a wedding and the wedding itself. It’s the perfect time to get snuggly with your new partner and make some passionate lasting memories. But not everyone has the finances for a cruise trip around the world! But rest easy, because there are a host of blue beaches, snow-peaked mountains, and vast plains around the world where you can stretch a dollar by a fair bit. Let’s take a look at some of the best budget honeymoon destinations around the world.
A honeymoon in Bangkok is a cliché for a reason. It’s a package of never-before-felt experiences at very affordable rates. In Thailand, you don’t have to restrict yourself to the usual affair of risqué shows, massages, and debauchery. Off-beat destinations like Pattaya and Chiang Mein offer some marvelous Buddhist architecture, delicious seafood, scuba diving, cave exploration, and a host of adventure sports. Even backpacking through the diverse country with your loved one is an option if you are a couple with a flair for the outdoors.
A short flight away from the United States, this Latin American country is a perfect balance between an adventure trip and a historical journey. You can explore the ancient Mayan ruins while you stay in a cabana by a waterfall. There are tours and excursions through the dense jungles, snorkeling and scuba diving along the second-longest barrier reef in the world. Belize also has a host of adventure sports and hotspots where you can go horse riding, zip-lining, and even bungee jumping.
The Florida Keys
If flying abroad is too expensive, and you still want to enjoy the sun and the sea, the Florida Keys is a perfect destination for you. A set of islands off the Caribbean coast of Florida, the Keys are renowned for some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world, which have inspired several artists and authors. The Keys are the perfect honeymoon destination if you want to lie on the beach sipping wine and enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea. There are coast side cottages available for very affordable rates and all in all it provides for a quiet, romantic getaway.
Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
If you are a geeky couple that loves historical sites, the Yucatan Peninsula has plenty to offer. It’s home to Chichen Itza – the largest Mayan ruins in the world, with exquisite architectural style and ruins that are well preserved. Chichen Itza is just a small distance from Cancun, which of course is famous for its beautiful beaches and casinos which are much more affordable when compared to Las Vegas or Atlantic City. This proximity means your honeymoon can include some fun party nights combined with some spectacular World Heritage Sites, making the Yucatan peninsula a very affordable, yet diverse experience.
These budget honeymoon destinations ensure that you and your partner can have a memorable time without having to overshoot your budget. Make sure you book flights and hotels in advance to avail of early bird discounts. Here’s to a happy honeymoon for you as well as your wallet.
