Weddings require a LOT of decision making, and it can be easy to forget what all this is about: you, your partner, and the rest of your lives together. While venues and flower arrangements are important choices, what you’ll remember in the long run are the beautiful, stress-free days you spent just the two of you, celebrating your marriage on your honeymoon. Whether you’re snorkeling in Turks & Caicos or whale watching in the Dominican Republic, our favorite destinations will provide you and your beloved with endless bliss.

Ultimately, choosing the perfect destination comes down to exactly what you and your future spouse want out of your vacation, but we’re here to help you narrow it down with our Top 10 Honeymoon Destinations and the best places to stay once you get there.

 

  1. Jamaica

This classic honeymoon spot is a big hit for a reason! Jamaica’s abundance of rainforests, mountains, and coral reef-lined beaches are perfect for adventure-seekers and leisurists alike. This Caribbean island nation offers the beach resorts and shopping of Montego Bay, the Blue Mountains (and Bob Marley Museum) of Kingston, or the Seven Mile Beach in Negril. River kayaking, mountain horseback rides, or dolphin swims are just a few possible excursions. Jamaica is also famous for its local rum and beer, both excellent to sip on a beach or in one of its many breweries.
