When you're first married, your vacation priorities are different from other travelers, such as families or backpackers. You want to be comfortable, you want to be surrounded by beauty, and you want a lot of time to yourselves. Some people spend hours at the poster store in Toronto just looking at various landscapes, hoping for inspiration that will help them plan a perfect honeymoon with their new spouse. If you're looking for ideas, we've got some to share.


One popular honeymoon destination is the Caribbean. It's close, it's relatively cheap, and it's got white sand beaches and turquoise water that will make for great snapshots. Many resorts have special honeymoon suites with all inclusive packages. Or, if you're looking for more alone time, you can check out the condos for rent and do away with hotel staff and other guests. Don't just look into Mexico and Cuba, either. There are great destinations all through the islands, such as St. Marteen, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico.


If you don't want to spend your honeymoon patronizing day spas or golf courses, why not travel to an area with a rich cultural and architectural history? The romance of the ancient times is apparent in Egypt, Greece, Italy, China, Japan, Peru, and Mexico. You might also visit your ancestral homeland in Scotland, France, Russia, or beyond. During your day trips you can enjoy ruins, museums, and local flavor at restaurants and shops.


If you really want to get away from it all with your new spouse, get out of the city entirely and spend your honeymoon in the wilderness. There are plenty of accommodations that are far from others but not lacking in luxury. Cottages abound on Vancouver Island, PEI, Cape Breton, and international destinations like New Zealand and Thailand. Your day trips can be spent hiking, taking scenic helicopter rides, and learning to canoe or kayak.

Close to Home

These are tough economic times and not everyone has the money to travel halfway around the world, especially after paying for a big wedding. If you don't have the dough for a foreign vacation, there are plenty of romantic options close by. A Niagara Falls hotel with a view of the falls, for example, a cottage in Northern Ontario, or a trip to Montreal for a cultural festival are all options you might consider that are within driving distance.
