St. Lucia

Where are all my adventure seeking couples? Don’t get me wrong, relaxing with your toes in the sand sounds incredible, but St. Lucia is the perfect place to get your adrenaline pumping with adventurous activities like zip-lining in the rainforest and hiking on Gros Piton.

Puerto Rico

Think quiet, secluded beaches, tropical weather, rich culture, amazing food—I mean, I pretty much have to stop myself from booking a flight right now. From the cobblestone streets of Old San Juan to the powder white beaches of Aguadilla, you and yours are guaranteed an amazing adventure!


If you are stuck choosing between Mexico’s two well-known honeymoon destinations (Cabo and Cuncan!), local honeymooners recommend Cancun. Explore the Mayan ruins or take a boat ride through canals to see the local, exotic birds.


Volcanoes, jungles, and beaches, oh my! No matter what island you choose to get lei’d on, you can’t go wrong with the many resorts and beaches to choose from.


According to our real DC-area couples, Bangkok (the nation’s capital) is a must-see. Tons of cultural attractions and remarkable cuisine!

New Zealand

Whether you both are seeking a little R&R (especially after all that wedding planning!) or an adventure-packed getaway, New Zealand has it all. For a truly unique experience, head to the Mud Spa Bath in Hell’s Gate where you’ll be immersed in the silky smooth warm geothermal mud.
