Picking a honeymoon location can be so difficult when there are countless amazing travel destinations around the world! If you and your partner are having a hard time narrowing down your list, then a great place to start is by examining how you spend your Saturdays.
Do you two typically go for active adventures like hiking, seek total relaxation in napping, catching up on TV series and reading, or do you enjoy partying and nightlife, or do you prioritize cooking and eating great food? Figure out the types of activities you enjoy the most and then find a destination that best caters to those interests! After all, how you choose to spend your free time on your Saturdays is a great indicator of how you'd like to honeymoon!
How you spend your Saturday: Working out and being active
Where you should honeymoon: Costa Rica
Costa Rica offers the best of both worlds for active couples. On the one hand, there's the ocean and the jungle for exploring, surfing, running, kayaking, zip lining, and horseback riding. But there are equally beautiful beaches and luxury hotels made for relaxing, reading and spending quality time with each other as well.
How you spend your Saturday: Cooking and trying new restaurants
Where you should honeymoon: Italy
While not exactly a groundbreaking destination, if food is your passion, there is no place in the world quite like Italy. Take your time and make your way throughout the country, sampling the dishes that are famous to each region. While Tuscany is the obvious choice for wine tastings, cooking classes, and exploring charming villages and medieval towns, don't miss the Amalfi Coast for fresh seafood and limoncello, Naples for the pizza, and the cacio e pepe in Rome.
How you spend your Saturday: Relaxing, napping and reading books
Where you should honeymoon: Maldives
The Maldives are an isolated paradise, with crystal clear blue waters, luxury resorts, and endless beaches and reefs to explore. While you can spend your time diving and exploring the 1,192 coral islands, you'd also be just as happy heading to the world-class spas, taking a dip in your private plunge pool in your overwater bungalow, or lounging on an empty beach with a great book, a cocktail and your brand-new hubby!
How you spend your Saturday: Partying
Where you should honeymoon: Greece
While the Greek Islands are most known for their stunning landscapes, rich history, picturesque villages, and sparkling white and blue buildings, they are also home to some pretty lively night scenes. So for those who like to spend their Saturdays socializing and drinking with friends, you can't miss the island of Mykonos, which comes alive during the summer with live music, DJs, a rowdy bar scene and hip beach clubs to let loose at during the day.
How you spend your Saturday: Going on new adventures
Where you should honeymoon: Botswana
A Safari is the ultimate adventure, where each day you'll rise early to set out in search of the most magnificent creatures of the animal kingdom. Botswana boasts some of Africa's best luxury camp sites, game-viewing, stunning landscapes, and natural game. After the thrilling game drives during the day, you can dine and sleep under the stars, gearing up for the next day's adventures.
