We are in the midst of wedding season, and this year’s wedding boom is projected to be one of the busiest since pre-COVID-19. Popular wedding planning site, The Knot, has estimated that as many as 2.6 million weddings will take place this year, which is up from the 2.2 million weddings we saw in 2019 and will be the most weddings in one year since 1984!
Usually, with the excitement of a wedding comes the (sometimes even larger) excitement of a honeymoon! With wedding culture growing more and more extravagant, lovebirds are adopting bigger and better ways to honeymoon. In this blog, we’ll look at three different but equally amazing options for your honeymoon in 2022.
3 Destinations to Consider for your 2022 Honeymoon
Sitting perfectly central in the Caribbean, Jamaica’s blue waters and stunning mountain views are what puts this island country at the top of our list. From the vibrant culture to the welcoming personalities of the locals, Jamaica is the perfect spot to honeymoon. Active travelers will love the different adventures available in Jamaica, such as hiking, snorkeling, rafting, and swimming, while more laid-back travelers can enjoy beach lounging, bar hopping, and luxury resort life.
If you’re taking your honeymoon to Jamaica during the fall, one thing to be considerate of is the possibility of a hurricane. With experts predicting an “above average” hurricane season for 2022, having a trip insurance plan in place is always a good idea to protect your investment. You can read more about how to protect your honeymoon in case of a hurricane here.
You can’t have a list of top honeymoon destinations and NOT include the City of Love! Paris is the standard, textbook definition of a romantic honeymoon destination. With 5-star restaurants on every corner, wine flowing more freely than water, and gorgeous historic cobblestone streets and buildings, Paris has something for every lover.
Some of the top things to do in Paris are taking a sunset cruise down the Seine River, visiting some of the world’s top museums and galleries, and sharing a bottle of champagne on the lawn in front of the Eiffel Tower. Seeing as this is the City of Love, that means it can get very crowded as well. From May to September is when the weather is at its best and also when the tourist numbers are at their highest. If you’re looking to avoid the crowds, try visiting between the months of October and April.
Napa Valley, California, USA
If you’re looking to visit or stay in the United States for your honeymoon, Napa Valley needs to be on your list for consideration. From the endless rows of picturesque grapevines to the ultra-luxurious all-inclusive resorts, what else could you want after the stress of planning an entire wedding?
With near-perfect weather year-round, there really is not a bad time to visit Napa. The easiest way to get to wine country by air is to fly into San Francisco and then make the 90-minute drive North to the vineyards. August-October is harvest season in the valley, which means that is when prices are at their highest. But, if you’re willing to pay a little more to visit during these months, you’ll be rewarded with phenomenal weather, stunning foliage, and vines that are perfectly ripe and ready to be picked.
If you’re traveling domestically within the U.S. to get to Napa Valley, don’t forget that you can always insure your trip with a Trip Cancellation insurance policy! Many people think you must be leaving your home country to get travel insurance, but that is certainly not the case. Trip Cancellation coverage will cover you if you don’t get to take your trip at all, and the included trip interruption benefits can cover you if you get delayed or miss a flight on the way there, due to a covered reason.
