With affordable packages and the most favorite attractions; beautiful beaches, clear blue waters, lush vegetation and gorgeous waterfalls, this destination has it all. You’ll also enjoy some amazing cuisine, art, shopping and tourist attractions, including music and dancing. There are three main beaches in Jamaica that are perfect for honeymoon vacations. Montego bay, Negril and Ocho Rios. Beware though that while the first two have beautiful beaches, luxury resorts and great shopping, Ocho Rios is usually covered with cruise ships and their passengers. Stay away if you are trying to find privacy and relaxation.

10. Seychelles

Located in the Western Indian Ocean, this is an idyllic vacation destination for honeymooners. Beautiful turquoise waters, beaches with sand that runs for miles. The main isle of Mahe is great place to go, but if you want something quieter, Praslin or La Digue may be a better choice. Although one of the most traveled, do not fret as it is definitely not commercialized. The tea plantations will take your breath away and for something a little different, head out on a glass bottom boat. You can travel around in a helicopter to see it all, or keep your head out of the clouds and just simply relax on the sand on a few grand beaches, Anse Intendance, Anse Takamaka or Grand Anse.

Anyone of these tropical honeymoon destinations would make for a beautiful way to celebrate your new marriage, to get some amazing deals on your vacation, I highly suggest booking through Travelocity. Of course you can go through a travel agent, but many are finding that they can get even better deals by booking online and Travelocity is one of the best websites to use.
