Start your marriage off right by making a lasting memory—head for a unique honeymoon destination.

Don’t worry, there will be plenty of time for romance—relax by holding hands as you walk through museums and plazas. Share smiles and romantic glances over delicious local cuisine. Dance until dawn, and then watch the sunrise. Don’t forget to purchase a few souvenirs made by local artisans as a memento of your trip. Let your love continue to grow surrounded by the beauty of nature. To get started, consider staying in the midst of a lush forest…
