When Chad and I got married, we took our honeymoon over in Europe, completely avoiding all beaches and instead choosing to tour cities. But after seeing the resorts available from Secrets Resorts & Spas, I’m starting to think we may have missed out! The Secrets Maroma Riviera Cancun is insanely stunning, with tons of activities for both the ladies AND the gentlemen. Situated on the Yucatan Peninsula with a beach recognized as one of the world’s best, you can lay out and relax or take part in activities like tennis, beach volleyball, yoga, sailing, and take advantage of complimentary green fees at the nearby golf course (just to name a few!). If taking it easy is more your style, you can indulge in some spa treatments at their 13,000 sqft spa, or enjoy a meal in one of their 7 restaurants or 6 bar lounges. An important thing I always pay attention to is connectivity….as much as I want to relax and enjoy myself, I still like staying somewhat connected, so the free WiFi is a huge plus. All the honeymoon suites have full ocean views along with 75% of the other suites, and the ones that don’t have direct swim access to one of their 13 pools. Meaning you can wake up, get out of bed, and walk straight into a pool from your room (in a swimsuit of course)! How great is that?? Top that off with 24 hour room service, unlimited drinks, pool & beach wait service and more, you’ve got yourself a pretty sweet honeymoon setup. Check out this particular Secrets Resort along with all the other in the AM Resorts portfolio for even more honeymoon options!

Are you having trouble deciding where to go for your honeymoon? It’s a tough yet exciting choice! When I was planning my honeymoon, we chose Barcelona because we both were interested in seeing the beautiful architecture and being some place warm. We got what we asked for! This is a list of places that I’ve either been to or am dying to get to. What makes it places for a modern couple? They’re not necessarily traditional places to go for a honeymoon
Tokyo, Japan: I’m DYING to get to Tokyo because I hear it’s so fascinating. This would be a place for the couple who loves big cities and likes trying new things: new cuisine+new language+new culture=new adventures! Photo
Santorini, Greece: I’ve also never been to Greece, but I can’t imagine a more peaceful setting. I think it’d be lovely to park it for a week or two and just soak in the sun and relax. Photo
Iceland: Iceland is CRAZY. Crazy good. My husband and I went here for the first time last year and I’ve never experienced anything remotely like it. It’s a great place for the outdoorsy type, especially if you like camping (I do not). You are allowed to camp anywhere in Iceland. The scenery is spectacular. It’s the closest thing to feeling like you’re on another planet. Photo
Road trip, USA: I think it’d be great fun to travel from coast to coast, stopping at quirky pitstops along the way. There’s nothing like seeing the beauty of our country. Photo
Salt Mines in the Sacred Valley of Peru: Machu Picchu is right near by and there are a lot of great trekking things to do here. Definitely for the more outdoorsy couple. Photo
