Do you know a couples who's planning a honeymoon? You might want to give them this list, as these destinations are likely to have newlywed specials.
It's no surprise Cabo San Lucas in Mexico is the top googled honeymoon spot for couples in Connecticut. Tulum has also become the trendy spot in Mexico for couples. Without a doubt, Mexico is not too far away and usually affordable, even at all-inclusive resorts.
Mainers planning a honeymoon frequently prefer the Caribbean, which is why Antigua is the top honeymoon researched destination in Maine. Belize is another popular option. This country is situated on the Yucatan Peninsula, bordered by Mexico and Guatemala in Central America.
Bay State couples also prefer Mexico, but specifically, Tulum. Tulum is hot and trendy, and very popular for honeymooners. There are plenty of four and five-star resorts to choose from, and the weather is always fabulous. Beware of hurricane season, which is why the best time to travel to Tulum is November through March.
Who would've thought the most sought-after honeymoon destination for Granite Staters are the Greek Islands, specifically Santorini? With its stunning whitewashed homes and clear blue water, the Greek Islands are still a bargain once you get there. Maybe New Hampshire lovebirds have watched Mamma Mia enough to know that Santorini's relaxing and beautiful.
Just south of India in the Arabian Sea is a group of islands called the Maldives. These small and gorgeous islands are the most popular among Rhode Island honeymooners. Fun fact, it's also the most popular in Alaska, too.
Couples from the Green Mountain State love the Caribbean, too, but maybe a little further south into the tropics than most. Saint Lucia is further south than Antigua and closer to South America. This is the most googled honeymoon destination for Vermonters, as they ditch the cooler temps of the North and head far south into the Caribbean Sea.
The one thing in common with all of these destinations is water. Honeymooners from New England love ocean and sea spots, and warm weather. That part is a no-brainer.
