The 3 Best Affordable
Honeymoon Destinations

Honeymoons, like weddings, aren’t cheap. Especially if you’re traveling to an international destination. But, you can keep this once in a lifetime experience within your budget by choosing a more affordable, but still incredibly appealing, honeymoon destination. You’ll just want to make sure you have your passport and visa sorted out, as well as ensure your personal identification meets REAL ID requirements, so you can make it through airport security. Now, let’s take a look at some of the best affordable honeymoon destinations.


Romantic sunsets, jungle treks through Ubud, and yoga retreats, Bali is a fantastic destination for honeymooners looking to get the most out of their special getaway. It offers everything you’d want in a tropical paradise, as well as savings. You can book a 5-star resort or beachside guesthouse for a fraction of the cost you would find in the Western Hemisphere. Get a couples massage at a luxury spa or dine at one of the local restaurants for much less than you’d expect to pay. Or just lounge around at the beach all day with a tropical drink in hand.

Riviera Maya, Mexico

When thinking about where to honeymoon, white-sand beaches, seaside resorts, and inviting turquoise-colored waters are probably what you’re imagining. All of those welcome you to this beautiful location on the Yucatan Peninsula. This strip of paradise stretches from the town of Puerto Morelos to Punta Allen, with plenty of Mayan ruins and beach activities to explore in-between. If you want a real adventure on your honeymoon getaway while you’re here, head to the unspoiled beaches of the UNESCO site of the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. It’ll be one of the highlights of your trip.


Portugal holds onto its old world charm while also being less expensive than neighboring Spain, and many other European destinations. From urban neighborhoods to quaint fishing villages, medieval castles to endless olive groves, there’s plenty of places to explore and sites to see. Spend some time wine tasting in the Douro region, the birthplace of port, or simply go sightseeing around Lisbon. You’ll be able to explore much of Portugal by car too, as car rentals are as cheap as $10 a day. Just make sure you apply for an ETIAS visa waiver if you’ll be honeymooning here after November 2023.
