Turns out, honeymooners really can have it all! Many just-married couples think that their destination of choice will limit them to one main activity: Relaxing on the beach, going on a thrill-seeking adventure, sightseeing, and so forth. But a post-wedding getaway to a luxe resort in Central or South America makes it possible to enjoy all of those options in one trip! Costa Rica, Argentina, Peru, and the rest of the region offer just as much nightlife, culture, and adventure as they do stunning beaches.
Plus, there are tons of otherworldly resorts: The Estancia Vik Jose Ignacio in Uruguay is an artist's haven that features polo lessons and hotel-wide barbecues — all just a mile from the beach. Or you can be among the first tourists to drink in Niacaragua's unique Mukul Beach, Golf & Spa, which offers equally dazzling views of the ocean and a volcano. There's also the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge at the foot of Machu Picchu in Peru, and the private villas of Cayo Espanto in Belize.
Now that we have your attention, you just have to choose whether you want to wake up to views of a rainforest, an ancient city, a vineyard, or the deep blue sea. Click through the full slideshow to explore it all.
