All honeymooners love to vacation in Belize. If you’re an active pair, you’ll love Belize City. With its urban environment that is close enough to the water to enjoy snorkelling and kayaking. If you’re into history, head to Cahal Pech or Xunantunich Mayan sites. Learn about the cultural heritage of this part of the world. There are plenty of affordable all-inclusive vacation resorts here. So you can save cash on drinks and food. While also enjoying lots of contemporary activities such as bicycle rentals and paddleboarding.
If you’d like to stay close to the East Coast, you should head to Bermuda; where you’ll have the experience of a lifetime. There are lots of resorts here with enough bars, restaurants and activities to keep you happy without busting the budget. Many offer complementary treats for honeymooning couples and since Bermuda has a host of affordable and free activities to enjoy such as discovering the Unfinished Church and the Royal Naval Dockyard, you’ll enjoy a great break at a great value price.
If you’re looking for the classic exotic honeymoon experience without spending too much money, Jamaica should be your first port of call. This Caribbean island boasts plenty of resorts to suit all budgets with food and drink all included in the price of your stay. There are plenty of free and affordable activities to enjoy here too, and if your idea of the perfect honeymoon involves lying on white sand beaches, you’ll be spoiled for choice here. Diving is also very affordable here, so you can afford to spend a little more on a good quality dive watch if you want to know how to read the time underwater so you don’t miss your all-inclusive dinner!

Mexico is a popular choice for any honeymooning couple, but while most head to Cancun, those on a budget head to Tulum on the Riviera Maya which may be a low-key resort but much more affordable.
