Planning a wedding can be a taxing endeavor. Dates, dresses, colors, flowers, cakes, reception venues…the list is endless. After reward? A perfect honeymoon!
Choosing honeymoon-central, though, is a task. Keep a few key ideas in mind and you can whittle your options to make the selection process easy and stress free:
Make sure your destination isn’t during the rainy unless you aren’t planning to enjoy the great outdoors.
You can’t hang on the beach, slopes, or at the tables the entire time. You’ll have to relax, as well.
You’ll be eating at least three times a day so it will either add or detract from your experience. Have lots of options, and make sure the area is known for safe food and water.
#1 Baja California Sur, Mexico
Pacific Mexico is at the top of the list of Mexico destinations. Boasting hot spots like Los Cabos, Cabo san Lucas, and San Jose de Cabo, this is a location full of opportunities. Best travel times are November though July.
Baja offers not only beautiful beaches, and warm climates, but a superior night life, zip-lining through rain-forests, ATV trails through the jungles, amazing offshore fishing spring through fall, and winter months make for the best whale watching.
Bundle that with Baja food and this place is off the charts! Authentic Mexican and fresh seafood make this a destination that wins.
#2 Las Vegas, Nevada
A year-round destination, though some of the summer months top the 100s. Weather here is dry so heat does not play the same factor as locations with high humidity. This place is full-speed ahead, 24/7, so you can play inside during the day and come out at night!
Vegas is entertainment, with roller-coasters and zip-lines over the strip. The city also has great hiking and rock climbing activities. Red Rock Canyon is a renown climbing spot in Southwest US. Hoover Dam tours, lakes for boating, museums, and botanical gardens are just some of the mix that makes Vegas great.
And food? There is no end to the food possibilities in Vegas. Countless buffets and food trucks are both in abundance…and gourmet restaurants? Can you say Gordon Ramsay? Not to mention restaurants at Caesar’s Palace, The Bellagio, Stratosphere, MGM Grand, Aria, etc., this is a food mecca.
Yearly tropical climates., though the hurricane season runs in peak summer months, so careful pre-planning is required, with back-up plans.
