Once the wedding is over, there is a honeymoon to look forward to. A popular choice is going on a tropical honeymoon. It is relaxing, sexy and the balmy weather is perfect for romance.
Here's how to plan a tropical honeymoon.
Choose a destination. There are many tropical destinations with various packages available. You may already have something in mind such as the Bahamas, Bali or one of the exotic islands off the Pacific Ocean. Make sure it is a place you both want to visit.
Set your budget. Include the cost of your honeymoon with your wedding budget. How much you are able to spend will determine where you can go, what type of resort you can stay at, and how long you can stay. It is generally affordable to go on a tropical vacation because of the currency differences, making the US dollar stronger than the local currency.
Talk to a travel agent. He should be able to give you recommendations as to popular destinations. Some resorts are geared towards families. For your honeymoon, you probably want something more quiet and isolated. You may also get suggestions from people who have gone to the place you are considering.
Go online to get ideas and suggestions. Many travel websites give you feedback from actual tourists.
If you are using a travel agent, let them know the trip is specifically for a honeymoon. You may also contact the resort or hotel directly and inform them. You may get to avail of honeymoon packages. Also, the resort may offer you free upgrades or complementary items such as free champagne as a gift or rose petals on your bed. Also request for a quiet room so they do not book you on the same floor as families who may tend to be more boisterous.
Ask for couple's packages. These may include his and hers spa treatments, a romantic sunset dinner for two or a honeymoon bungalow. Some tropical resorts may even offer a special traditional wedding ceremony for honeymooners.
Make sure you have filed the appropriate vacation leave from your office. You want to make sure you have a job waiting for you when you get back. Allow for some extra days to give you time to adjust to the differences in time zones.
Pack properly. Aside from your bikini, you will need to bring clothes for sight seeing. Although you may think you'll spend most of your time indoors, you will need to bring a dressier outfit for evenings and casual wear for daytime. Pack lots of sun block, a hat and sunglasses. Bring bug spray also.
Before your departure, consult with your doctor. You may be advised to get some shots to protect against tropical diseases. You may also need to get your birth control prescription refilled. Ask about anti motion sickness medication, especially if you'll be riding a small plane or boat to get to your resort.
Bring your camera and extra memory cards. You will want to remember your honeymoon plus the country will be rich with beautiful sights and interesting flora
A tropical honeymoon is exciting, sexy and fun! Everything about your exotic locale is sure to bring out your romantic juices flowing.
