Which would you prefer on a honeymoon? At first, I thought I wanted to explore and have an adventure. We’re young and sprightly now, we have no kids, we can relax when we’re old, etc. But now, I’m leaning towards relaxation – the wedding will be stressful enough, I don’t want to have to plan an entire itinerary of things to do for a week-plus in a country I’ve never been to.
So I think that we want to go to an all-inclusive where the default mode is relaxing on the beach/in the spa/at the bar, and we can go on excursions for excitement.
What did you choose?

We generally like adventure but for our honeymon were so happy we went for a relaxing all inclusive on the beach. So so happy.
ETA: We fulfilled our adventure quota with a day off the ressort, trying new water sports and para sailing. So it was not completely a lazy vacation.

our honeymoon was at a couples resort, they had a lot of activities such as archery, tennis, roller skating, fishing, swimming, paddle boats, kayaks and even horse riding so for us it was a blend between relaxing and adventure

We went for a combo! We went to Grand Cayman where there are beautiful beaches and great restaurants to relax upon, yet we could go snorkeling, scuba diving, swimming with dolphins and stingrays, and other sighseeing (turtle farm, Hell, etc.). I want to go back!!

We’re taking a cruise, so we’ll have some adventures in the ports, but mostly relaxing on the boat and enjoying not having anything to do!

We went the relaxation route. I was so stressed out from the wedding that it was by far the best thing for me. And definitely was our best vacation ever. They did still have a lot of excursions and activities if you wanted to be active, but we only did a few of them. Relaxation was our #1 priority!

I think we are going mainly for relaxation. If out of the 7 days, we find an something interesting (a hike, tour, ect.), we may take it on. We haven’t had a vaca in so long, we really just want to enjoy each other.

FYI – when I initially thought “adventure,” I thought of going to a city (maybe Paris or Madrid, for example) with no beach in sight and exploring the culture. So I feel like an all-inclusive is on the other side of the spectrum now.

Relaxation! I’m of the firm belief that a honeymoon is time to enjoy being together, so I wanted to go somewhere with very few attractions and activities. We’re going to a cabin in the mountains. We’ll be going on a cruise later this year for adventure. 🙂

We did a combination. We went to Anguilla, and definitely spent a lot of time eating and relaxing on the beach, but we also explored the island a lot and went snorkeling and such.

We originally looked at Adventure (travelling NZ), then decided a little exploring instead (driving around Tasmania) BUT then decided a nice quiet relaxing time in our own state seemed like a much more pleasant way to spend out time… The most adventurous thing we’ll do is mini putt putt and maybe some wine tasting hahahaha

We are going for a bit of a combination. There is so much to see and do and I don’t want to miss anything… if it were up to me, we would be running around and never stopping… but I know that Fiance will force me to stop, calm down, and relax. We have decided to add on a few days just so we can slow down more and relax.

We did both on a cruise 🙂 The excursions let us explore and do fun stuff but the boat let us relax!

We’re kind of doing both (although we’re definitely not going all-inclusive). We do have lots of 5* luxury hotels booked along the way, but we’re also going to some very out of the way places, doing scuba diving, motor racing and all sorts of other activities and visiting three very cosmopolitan capital cities.

Ours was a mix. We spent three weeks in Ireland, so it was only natural that some parts of the trip we were relaxed in front of a fire and during other parts we were taking boat rides across a choppy Atlantic to climb craggy islands!
