Nicaragua is hot; it’s the new ‘it’ destination among the world’s sophisticated travellers. Celebrities, world-weary entrepreneurs and the lucky few who manage to seamlessly combine professional and personal success, are travelling with their families for a well-deserved break to intimate, secluded five-star resorts in private islands and enclaves in Belize, Costa Rica and now, Nicaragua.
When we think of the turquoise Caribbean sea, or the lush forests of Costa Rica, our mind’s eye often expands into visions of romance, a holiday for two, far away from the bubbling laughter of children. Yet children, like adults, have an instinctual thirst for Nature, a deep need to discover life and the colourful world of plants and animals, to feel the soft grass beneath their feet and contemplate branches of centenary-old trees, too steep to climb. Those whose idea of Paradise is a family adventure, will find their calling in Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens. Ensconced in the midst of the verdant Costa Rican rainforest and overlooking the imposing Arenal volcano, the five-star boutique hotel offers a safe yet fun-filled adventure which your family will one day look back on with a heart filled with emotion.
Located less than 20 minutes away from the Cancun International Airport, the luxury resort of Nizuc, standing proud at the gateway of the sun-drenched Riviera Maya, awaits you and your family for a weekend getaway or for a much longer, lazier break. The elegant resort was originally dreamed of as a presidential retreat, but fate stepped in and opened its doors to discerning travellers who, world-weary, seek to return to innocence amidst verdant mangroves, transparent waters and colorful gardens, which satisfy the soul’s hunger to be reunited with Nature.
Top 6 Honeymoon Destinations in the Caribbean
When given the choice, most people would select the seaside or the mountains for the most romantic vacation they are likely to enjoy in their lifetime: their honeymoon. They can hardly be blamed. Big, bustling cities like Paris, Rome or New York have their own undeniable charm, but when it comes to feeling love in its full expression, nature is always the perfect backdrop, especially when it reaches its fullest expression, as it always does in the Caribbean. In this post we bring you a few suggestions for a dream honeymoon or even just a romantic escape with ‘the one’.
Esperanza – An Auberge Resort in Cabo, San Lucas
Nestled within the private enclave of Punta Ballena in Cabo San Lucas and overlooking the dramatic sea of Cortez, this award-winning resort, whose spa was deemed one of the best in the world by Condé Nast Traveler, offers an incomparable pampering experience marked by highly attentive service, lush vegetation, traditional Baja décor and traditional Mexican cuisine. A favoured getaway for celebrities the likes of Jennifer Aniston and Leonardo DiCaprio, the Esperanza resort is the ultimate romantic escape, where guests often forego bathing in the sea to enjoy the dramatic crashing of the waves against the cliffs, from the peace and magnificence of an expansive main infinity pool (one of many on the resort), whose exquisite design challenges the eye to determine where the man-made construction ends and the endless sea begins.
When you’re looking for a little exotic mystery Belize delivers. It’s the sort of destination that leaves you saying, “What took me so long to find this place?” Especially if you’re staying at Cayo Espanto. Let’s start with this: Cayo Espanto is a private island just three miles off the coast of Belize. And even though you’ll be sharing it with a handful of others, chances are slim that you’ll lay eyes on them during your stay.
How many times have you vowed to disconnect—to turn off your tablet, to leave your laptop at home, to make your smartphone play dumb? It might sound crazy, but the only way to really “recharge your battery” is by unplugging. That’s why we love these resorts. They force you to turn off the power. All right, maybe “force” is too strong a word—because once you’ve settled into these tranquil hideaways and they begin to work their magic on your frazzled nerves you won’t miss your electronic gadgets one little bit.

The name is a little unusual, we admit that. But it won’t take you long to start thinking of One&Only Palmilla as your “one and only” resort. The readers of Condé Nast Traveler placed One&Only Palmilla on their 2013 Gold List and Travel + Leisure ranked One&Only Palmilla on its list of the World’s 500 Best Hotels for 2013. It’s so special some reviewers have worried that they’d run out of stars to award it.
We say, don’t worry about that: you’ll find plenty of stars in the sky over Los Cabos at night!
