7 Alternative Honeymoon Destinations You Never Thought Of

Not the typical couple? Or maybe just see yourself doing more than just lounging on your honeymoon? This is the list for you. It includes the top alternative honeymoon destinations that will be the talk of the decade.

So forget about Hawaii, the Caribbean, Paris, or any of those other common travel destinations and instead consider these fantastic vacation destinations.

1. Belize

Central America has some of the most beautiful scenery in some of the roughest spots if you dare to make your way past their amazing beaches.

Located next to Mexico, it has all the flavor of a Latin country without the touristy atmosphere that would otherwise kill its natural beauty.

Tour the Mayan ruins and make your way through a hike of history. The best time to visit is somewhere around May, making it perfect for after a spring wedding.

2. Oman

As Dubai becomes more and more popular for honeymooners, the combination of its rich tropical atmosphere combined with the crowds rolling in can make you feel cramped even in this large city.

So to get away from all of the crowds, but still enjoy the Middle East like never before, Oman comes equipped with some of the most luxurious hotels on the market.

Right on the tip of the Arabian Peninsula you can get stunning tours through deserts and still make it to the resorts along the beaches, all at a better price than you would find in some of the more expensive nations.

3. Mozambique

The untapped wonders of Africa can lead to a couple’s adventure that will be the tale of a lifetime. More than just fancy dinners and a nice hotel bed, your honeymoon can be so much more if you decide to do some volunteer work.

Many companies online now offer honeymoon volunteering programs that are part relaxing and part giving back to those who are less fortunate.

But if you’re not interested in that and want to splurge a couple extra bucks on the best they have to offer you can find a few excellent beach front cabanas where your money will go a long way.

4. Romania

Leaning on the vampire hype that has taken over the US, Romania has some of the most authentic views of what the life of Dracula would have been like.

Stay in castles fit for royalty with views as far as the eye can see, built high upon rolling hills in the countryside. Transylvania isn’t just Dracula themed as there are many other activities for couples to partake in such as, skiing, hiking, shopping and even having a little fun at some disco bars.

5. Indonesia

The ruins of ancient, intricately designed temples of Ratu Boko will steal your heart as you experience the true Asian getaway with its amazing sunsets.

Indonesia is a country whose hospitality is impeccable as there is no end to the welcome you will get. From the hanging gardens to lotus ponds, no matter where you stay the landscape surrounds you with mountain overlooks and winding rivers.

Plus there are several health retreat resorts so that you can feel good and take in all that Indonesia has to offer.

6. Utah, United States

Even though it doesn’t sound like the most romantic destination Utah has great national parks and a Grand Canyon-esque layout, without all the crowds and high lodging prices.

So sit back and enjoy the amazing sunrises coming up over the horizon as you prepare for a day of adventure through the park. What’s more – you might even come across some bits of film history, as many westerns were filmed in Utah.

7. St. Vincent and the Grenadines

On more of the traditional side St. Vincent and the Grenadines are lovely islands to experience with clear waters, warm air, and soft white sand. With a ton of local culture to soak up you will really get to know the tropics as the natives do.

Because of its location this spot is good for honeymoons all year long, especially if you are looking to get away from the cold. You can usually catch a flight straight from Barbados.
