We’re firm believers that there’s nowhere in the world that shouldn’t be seen, visited, and explored. Even the biggest tourist traps usually have some worthy attraction. That said, there is a time for everything, and the time to spend a boatload on hotels, restaurants, and entertainment isn’t necessarily following your wedding day. It’s likely you’ve spent a small fortune on your big event, and you may have plans to buy a house or start a family—both expensive ambitions. With that in mind, it can’t hurt to save on your honeymoon.
But who says saving should mean settling? There are countless stunning and unforgettable places to visit in this big wide world, so don’t feel obligated to buy a ticket to one of the handful of newlywed meccas you know about. Instead of renewing your passport, consider somewhere in the States you’ve never explored… or visit the closer Caribbean island rather than the one that requires three boat trips and a small jet plane. Read on for nine alternative honeymoon destinations we’re smitten with.
