As I have shared with you before, my fiancé and I are getting married in October of this year. We are still, as of yet, undecided about where we would like to go. We both knew we wanted somewhere that would be both fun and relaxing (and, he’s never seen the ocean before.) I instantly fell in love with Trinidad and Tobago, and he did too. Then, we stumbled upon Punta Cana…. Making our decision that much more difficult.
Like Trinidad and Tobago, Punta Cana offers a variety of all-inclusive resorts. And who wouldn’t want that on their honeymoon (or any vacation, for that matter.) Everything within the resort is paid for. And if you want to do something that isn’t provided by the resort, you simply have to plan for the extra expense. Whether you’re looking for a quaint hotel room to stay a few nights, or beach front villa for an extended stay, there is a variety of romantic offers available for you in Punta Cana. What my fiancé and I liked the most was that the majority of these resorts offer couples massages and spa treatments. Many also offer a 24 hour workout center. I, personally, am thinking yoga on the beach at sunrise might not be a bad way to start my day.
Not only does Punta Cana have several options for places to stay, there is a variety of things to do. For the sports/athletic lover there’s golf, tennis, and even horseback riding (how romantic!) For those who venture a little more spiritedly there are guided Segway tours, bike tours, and even heli-tours. If that isn’t enough, you can also explore the reef or an underwater boat wreck.
After a long day exploring, head to one of the many fine dining experiences in Punta Cana. Many offer a variety of fresh seafood. The typical flavoring, however, is the sensational tastes of the Mediterranean. What better tastes on a honeymoon could you find than a combination of zesty, herb infused meals and sweet deserts? Pair with champagne or a white wine (maybe even a local rum) and you’ve got a magical night for two. If that’s not enough, Punta Cana hosts a few bars where you can get a quiet drink for two, or liven up your evening. There are several bars off of the golf clubs, and even a cigar bar (for the smoking enthusiast.) Be sure to ask for recommendations for both restaurants and bars from either your travel guide or hotel concierge to ensure that you get the experience that is right for you.
And this, my friends, is only the tip of the iceberg. I really don’t know how we are going to decide! But I can tell you one thing, I would personally love to dive down and explore a shipwreck. Or just go snorkeling again. Head over to TravelSpan.com to book your romantic honeymoon and non-stop flights to Punta Cana.
