The Best South American Honeymoon Destinations

Are you looking for a perfect setting to spend your honeymoon? Most people focus on cushy locations that cost a lot of money and have very little culture to offer; they are, ultimately, short changing themselves. There are many destinations that are considered well-kept secrets that will delight travelers and honeymooners alike, as they are not overrun with tourists, are affordable, and provide the ideal balance of natural loveliness with personality. While some people may not think about South America as their first go-to destination, there are a number of great reasons why it’s the perfect place for any pair of newlyweds. The continent is bursting with beauty and vitality, ensuring that there is something for every kind of preference. If you want to get the most out of your honeymoon and experience something truly unique and different, South America is the place for you.

One of the most popular locations where people go to unwind and relax is the by the ocean. There are countless pristine beaches that are available in South America, many of them locally-run and isolated. If you want to splurge, you can even have your own private island! For a slice of waterside paradise, the Archipelago Los Roques in Venezuela will offer you unparalleled aquatic biodiversity and extraordinarily blue waters; couples will want to spend as much time below the surface as they do above, as there are multiple barrier reefs and long stretches of whimsical coral to snorkel and dive among. The rustic Brazilian fishing village of Praia do Forte is perfect for honeymooners in search of a hidden gem; along with white sands, warm waves and luxurious accommodations, this pedestrian-friendly community offers fun boutiques, a sea turtle reserve and plenty of historic castles to explore.

For couples that long to feed off the energy of a bustling metropolitan, they will find their five senses delighted by South America’s cities, including Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo and Santiago. Here, honeymooners will be intoxicated by the lush blend of indigenous and Spanish history and colorful, contemporary style that is unique to each region. Each of these cities are brimming with museums, shopping opportunities, buzzing restaurants, energetic music and vibrant artwork. Though equally fascinating and dynamic, South America’s various urban centers each have their individual personalities that are complex and worth getting to intimately know. Whether the two of you want to stroll through the iconic Plaza de Armas in Santiago, dance the night away in one of Sao Paulo’s pulsating nightclubs or explore the USECO heritage site of Cuzco, romance will be in the air as you dive headfirst into a world of rich heritage and vibrant self-expression.

Are you a fan of nature? There is no better place to behold distinct and verdant landscapes like South America. To have an absolutely unforgettable honeymoon, explore Machu Picchu and hike about the ancient Incan civilization that hovers enigmatically among the clouds and skims the heights of the spectacular Andes Mountains. Want to snap an absolutely breathtaking photo? Visit the fantastical and impressive Iguassu Falls to see the powerful and silky waters fall from plant-covered cliffs; chances are you might even see a rainbow! Of course, one cannot discuss the natural beauty of this fertile and diverse continent without mentioning the Amazon rainforest and its plethora of wildlife.
