Holidays are such a magical time of the year, and even more so if you have an additional reason to celebrate, like an upcoming wedding.

Per usual, we’re here to help you with your destination travel needs.
So, if you’ve got honeymooning on your mind, here are 6 of the best honeymoon destinations that would be perfect for your post-nuptial vacation!
1. Paris, France
It may be cliché, but there’s a reason that this place is regarded as the City of Love. Romance is the second language of France, and Paris does its reputation justice. Renaissance buildings, beautiful city lights, gothic cathedrals and some of the best wine in the world are just a few things that make this city one of the best places to spend your honeymoon. Plus, who hasn’t dreamed of a honeymoon in Paris?
2. Ambergris Caye, Belize
Belize is known for its crystal blue waters, relaxing Caribbean vibe and delicious seafood—all the ingredients for a romantic honeymoon getaway. If you’re not the type to just sit on the beach all day—although that’s cool, too—Belize has one of the most well preserved coral reefs in the world. The Cayes are a diver’s dream, and, once you witness these waters, you’ll understand why.
3. Lake Bled, Slovenia
If you happen to be looking for the most picturesque place to spend your honeymoon, then you should consider this hidden treasure. Lake Bled sits in the Northwest corner of Slovenia. The town is set in the Julian Alps and is the perfect place to spend a relaxing honeymoon vacation. Most impressive, perhaps, is the post-card worthy castle that sits on an island in the middle of the lake.
4. Myanmar (Burma)
Myanmar is an ecologically rich country in Southeast Asia that borders some of the most beautiful blue waters you will ever see. No matter where you go, you and your loved one are sure to be swept away by the gorgeous Buddhist temples, stunning landscape and culture of this place. It will be easy to balance relaxation and adventure within the diversified terrain, making your honeymoon in Myanmar one of the best experiences of your union. Just make sure to check the seasons before you go!
5. Lake Atitlán, Guatemala
Yes, we have a thing for lakes. Can you think of anything more romantic than a serene body of water surrounded by nature? Lake Atitlán is exactly that: a 50-square mile lake surrounded by volcanic mountains that has preserved the peaceful spirit of the Mayan people who once performed rituals near its banks. The energy of this area coupled with the immense natural beauty will leave you in awe and make a memorable honeymoon escape.
6. Havana, Cuba
Head back in time (we’re talking pre-colonial times) to the preserved architecture, customs and traditions of Cuba. Everything from the culture to the cars has retained its old-school charm due to regulated tourism and conservation efforts, and finally the borders are open to U.S. visitors. Cuba is definitely a place that you want to see in the next few years, and what better way to spend your honeymoon than the country’s capital city: Havana. The unique characteristics of this colorful city are sure to captivate you, and even more so on the arm of your sweetheart.
Wherever you plan to spend your special trip, we truly hope that you enjoy your honeymoon. We wish you both a lifetime of happy times and lots of travel!
