As weddings usually go, people tend to spend thousands of cash for their special ceremony. Granted, it is probably the best day of their life but always forgotten is what comes after – the honeymoon. By the time they are ready to plan their vacation to extravagant cities such as Paris or Rome, they’re stuck with a budget that stops them from visiting their dream location. However, there are tons of countries that are just as romantic as those big and flashy places which are way more wallet-friendly than the rest.
So, no need to get into an argument with your partner over financial issues. Just check out our list of affordable yet romantic honeymoon destinations for couples on a tight budget.
1. Québec City, Canada
If you can’t afford to go to Paris on your honeymoon, worry not as we have another option that is much cheaper while maintaining that European retreat feel. Québec City in Canada is the perfect choice to replace that dream honeymoon in Paris since its mostly populated with French Canadians that influence the city’s architecture, food, and fashion. Tour Old Québec and wander around its historical French-inspired looking landmarks like the Citadelle of Québec, the grand Fairmont Le Château Frontenac hotel, and Terrasse Dufferin which overlooks the St. Lawrence River; or interact with the people in Petit Champlain and get to know the culture better.
2. Negril, Jamaica
Jamaica, the birthplace of reggae music, is not a common choice among newlyweds to spend their honeymoon at. But, considering that it is one of the Caribbean island countries, you can expect beautiful sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters at a town far west of the country, Negril. Stroll along the Seven Mile Beach in your beachwear with internationally-acclaimed restaurants lined up for you to dine in.
3. Tulum, Mexico
Another budget romantic destination for broke newlyweds is Tulum in Mexico. Tulum was one of the last cities built and inhabited by the Mayans. Until this day, the ruins are well-preserved for tourists to visit which include El Castillo, the Temple of the Frescoes, and the Temple of the Descending God. If history stuff isn’t your thing, just walk down to the beach and enjoy the stunning view.
4. Florida Keys, USA
If your goal was to visit somewhere with Caribbean sceneries, Florida Keys is the affordable option. It is a string of tropical islands which is located away from the hustle and bustle of Florida leaving you and your lover to enjoy the intimate paradise. Whether it’s fishing, boating, snorkeling, scuba diving, or even swimming with the dolphins, there is no shortage of romantic outings in Florida Keys.
