Oh, the honeymoon! Who doesn’t love one? You just got married and you’re excited to embark on this new chapter of your life, celebrating the best life has to offer! Why not enjoy a beautiful honeymoon in Punta Cana? It’s just the two of you on an escapade, away from the world. Eating and drinking to your heart’s content. Well, the issue now is that you have to plan it. Not so fun, right? Well, trust me when I say that while a bit tedious, it doesn’t have to be hard! Just check out this list!

Set a budget for your honeymoon in Punta Cana

The most important part of the planning process is to know how much you’ll be spending! It’s necessary because it will impact most of the decisions you’re going to make, from your flights to your hotel to any extra excursions you want to try. You should have an idea of your budget from the very beginning. Ideally, you should set a honeymoon budget during the wedding planning, but if you’re doing it after, that’s fine too! Just don’t change your budget too much, and try not to increase it on a whim; if you keep changing it, it’s hard to make a set plan and your trip will probably never happen.

Don’t let that happen! Start saving! It might look like a gigantic amount when you set your budget, but a little bit of money each month will get you far. Weddings and honeymoons usually take years to plan, so you have plenty of time to save up for your dream vacation. Don’t lose sight of what matters!

Now, choose a resort in Punta Cana

Oh, there are many resorts to go to, and each one is better than the last! It can be overwhelming to make a decision, but you need to give it a good hard think. You can’t just choose the first one you come across because you might be missing out on some features you wanted, or it might be a family-oriented resort when an adults-only resort is probably better for your honeymoon. Do proper research, compare your options, and keep your budget handy!

The best resorts in Punta Cana will often offer a honeymoon package tailored specifically for your trip. So be on the lookout for that! Another good sign is proximity to Bavaro or Macao Beach, the most popular ones, because they really are worth every cent you spend. There are no wrong answers here, though, so choose what’s best for you!

Prepare for minor expenses

Very tricky ones, mind you! Planning for a trip usually includes things like the stay and flight, but have you ever thought about transportation? How will you move around when you’re there? (This might help.) How about the cost of your meals, or any other little things that you can’t account for? It’s a long list of details you have to keep in mind that can throw off your budget, forcing you to spend more than you intended. Always check what your travel package includes! You will have to cover any extras! Luckily for you, Punta Cana does not require a visa to enter, and you can even stay for three months without one, so that’s one less thing to worry about.

Consider a visit before your honeymoon in Punta Cana

The best research is done on your own. And I don’t mean online! The internet is an amazing tool where you will find a lot of information, but it just doesn’t compare to experiencing things yourself. If you’re worried, however, that visiting Punta Cana before the honeymoon will make it any less special, that shouldn’t be one of your worries! Firstly, the honeymoon celebration itself is more than just another vacation; it includes different packages, activities, and accommodation – and on the other hand, Punta Cana has so many things to show you that you can come back every year and still find something to be fascinated by! Just check out these hidden gems.

Take some time off work to come and check out Punta Cana for yourself before you reserve everything. Investigate a little about your packages, the sites you want to visit, and any other activity you want to schedule for the honeymoon. I promise it’ll be worth it! Maybe you can even have a photoshoot, just for fun.

You don’t have to go on a honeymoon right away

The way most people imagine the honeymoon is to finish the wedding ceremony and hop on the plane the next day. And yes, that’s romantic, but nothing is written in stone here! The honeymoon celebration is yours and it will happen in your own time. If you find yourself short on funds or time, well, why don’t you postpone it a little bit? A few months won’t hurt anyone, and this is more about you and your spouse than anything else. Who’s gonna stop you? Give it proper planning to achieve maximum enjoyment!

Plan your honeymoon in Punta Cana with your spouse

While it is very fun to craft plans in your head for hours on end, the honeymoon is not just about you and what you want. You’re half of the equation! Try to include your partner in the process. Ask what they want and expect from their honeymoon and how they want to do it. More importantly, since you will be married, this means you two will have to pay for everything together. Discuss the budget! There’s no reason why you shouldn’t be taking this as an opportunity for you two to work together. Don’t miss it!

Keep your honeymoon in Punta Cana simple

Everyone has a long list of ideas of what they want for their honeymoon. It’s normal! You’re excited, eager to have fun, and trying to maximize your honeymoon as much as possible – but is that what you need? Keep your plans a little bit shorter and simple, on the loose end. This doesn’t mean you should be vague, though; the idea is to have this time for your partner and yourself, so don’t go for fancy details you don’t really want. You might have seen someone else’s honeymoon full of luxury and extravagance and wanted that for yourself, but this is your experience! No one else’s!

There’s a lot more ground to cover, but these are the pillars of a good honeymoon plan. This is a loose guide meant to shed some light on the process because at the end of the day this is about you and your partner, celebrating your love. I can’t tell you what to do! Sit down together and discuss the plan as much as possible. Polish the details, set the budget, and don’t forget to include a photoshoot. You’ll want to save this memory forever!
