When most people think of going on their honeymoon, they automatically think of the usual suspects: Hawaii, Paris, Thailand, the Caribbean, Greek Isles etc. There is nothing wrong with any of those places and they are absolutely beautiful places to visit. However, when we think of honeymoons, we think of a trip of a lifetime. Something you could never do again basically. So, why go the typical route? We put together 5 Unique Honeymoon destinations from around the world that we think would be amazing for our Toronto Newlyweds to experience.
Ambergris Caye, Belize – Madonna’s song that had her dreaming of San Pedro was what gave this Ambergris Caye (of San Pedro) its nickname of ‘La Isla Bonita’. The largest Island of Belize is home to hundreds of caves, incredible waterfalls, a virgin tropical rainforest and some of the best scuba diving around since Belize is home to the second largest coral reef. Romantic and beautiful with some of the best vistas in the world makes this an absolute dream honeymoon destination. Best time to visit is November to May, however if you are into diving with whale sharks, then March to June is ideal.
Tanzania & Zanzibar, Africa – This is a two in one suggestion, but one we think is worth combining. Experience one of the world’s finest safaris with a picturesque beach. Sleep in a tree house or private luxury villa and go on a hot air balloon safari tour to really amp up the experience. Africa’s mystery and abundance in adventure amidst peaceful surroundings is absolutely out of this world. The best time to visit is June to October.
Pamalican Island, Philippines – The Amanpulo resort is where you’ll stay on this exclusive, private, tranquil and serene Island, which has been rated one of the worlds finest. Keeping in mind that this resort is not for the budget conscious, it is definitely an unforgettable ‘bucket-list’ honeymoon that will be low-maintenance, rejuvenating and picturesque. If you are up for it, there are some fun water adventures like coral viewing, diving, windsurfing & sailing. Best time for this honeymoon is definitely November to May.
Mal País, Costa Rica – Similar in tranquility and a paradise destination, Mal País in the Nicoya Peninsula in Costa Rica is known for it’s lovely lush gardens, spectacular white sandy beaches and it’s stunning nature reserves. The Nicoya Peninsula is on the pacific coast and is perfect for the couple wanting to escape the crowds and focus on romance and exploration. The best time to go is November to April.
Alaska, U.S. –If Glaciers, hiking, exploring wildlife adventures and whale watching make your heart skip a beat, then Alaska is perfect for you! If it’s romance, luxury & gourmet foods is your thing or being more secluded and feeling like you are the only two people on earth fills your heart then Alaska is the right fit for our Toronto Couples.
