All the romantic, chick-flick worthy activities can be done in Belize. From horseback riding down the beach to strolling hand-in-hand down cobblestone streets, your honeymoon will have all those butterflies and first date feels.

And if that wasn’t enough, 1 Belize Dollar is equivalent to .45 Euro, so it’s like everything you’re paying for it half off!

1. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

No, you aren’t dreaming.

Punta Cana might look too good to be true, but this gorgeous spot in the Dominican Republic is the real deal.  The 32km of palm tree lined beaches and clear Caribbean waters are just a start to the island.

You two lovebirds can play a round at a Jack Nicklaus award winning golf course, snorkel around the area coral reefs, or take up a concert at Altos de Chavon all without leaving the island.  There is also a natural spring, Hoyo Azul, to take a dip in and the butterfly walk to Iguaonita Cave to check off the list as well.
