This is a great destination to go at any time of the year and for almost any budget. Temperatures remain around 80 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year, making the warm water perfect for swimming, snorkeling and other fun water sports.

Make reservations at one of the many bungalows on the water, have breakfast served to you over the water by a flower-filled canoe, enjoy gourmet picnic lunches on a private beach, observe the gorgeous Bora Bora sunset from a private sailboat and end the day with a unique display of Polynesian music and dancers. Resorts have been welcoming couples for over 40 years and their special amenities have been fine tuned to perfection. From sunrise to sunset, each resort has designed their own blend of unique romantic experiences for their guests to choose from.

There's no place in the world like Hawaii. You have six different islands to choose from or to hop to, each offering unique experiences and adventures that are sure to please anyone's tastes. Take in the fresh floral aroma that surrounds you everywhere in Hawaii, take a dip in the refreshing blue waters, and simply gaze at the breathtaking natural beauty that you can't escape from. You could even plan special activities such as wading with sea turtles, swimming with the dolphins, hiking near the volcano, or snorkeling on your private beach.
A fun thing to do: Check out some of Hawaii's resorts that offer a private outdoor shower!

Florence, Italy
Looking for something more than white sand and water sports?

Florence is also an easy leaping pad to other romantic destinations including Rome, Venice and the Amalfi Coast.

Costa Rica
Considered the World's #1 Ecotourism Destination, Costa Rica offers visitors a chance to experience everything from relaxed private time on beautiful sandy beaches to the thrill of a lifetime with Class 4 and 5 river rafting. There are many fascinating regions in Costa Rica that couples can consider visiting during their stay. Most packages will combine a region inland, such as the Arenal Volcano (where you can enjoy world-class spa treatments and natural hot springs bathing), Monteverde or the Central Valley, with a beach destination such as Tamarindo, the Nicoya Peninsula or Papagayo (where you can plan for a romantic candlelight dinner on the beach).
A fun thing to do: Go ziplining over the tall Costa Rican rainforest canopies.

Greek Isles
Natural beauty, amazing sunsets, sapphire waters, mouth-watering foods, and traditional Greek architecture are just some of the adventures you can enjoy while visiting one of the world's most romantic honeymoon settings. Check out more than one of the unique Greek Islands and visit the Greece hotspots of Santorini, Mykonos and - of course - Athens. Visitors to the Greek Isles can enjoy relaxing on the beautiful beaches, resort activities, and cultural/historical sightseeing.

Settle down for dinner on the Napa Valley Wine Train. Or maybe just relax and drink wine and eat cheese while cruising down Napa's lazy river with your new life partner.

Vancouver, Canada
Home to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Vancouver has always been a wonderful choice for a honeymoon destination.

Eastern Europe
Until the fall of the Berlin wall, Eastern Europe was hardly considered a place for a romantic honeymoon. Luckily, times have changed and honeymooners are welcome to enjoy Easter Europe's friendly locals, affordable accommodations, interesting history, and unforgettable scenery. Experience something you never thought you could by taking a walk through the bustle of the market squares in the major cities to the quiet surroundings of Lake Bled. Experience the different Eastern European cultures in one trip by hopping destinations.
