Many people look to tropical climates for their romantic escapes, so you're not alone if you're considering sun and sand as part of your wedding or honeymoon travel. There are several high-tourist resort areas throughout Mexico, the Caribbean, and the Pacific islands. But if you're looking for a getaway with a little more adventure than pampering, Central America might have just the destination for you.
Panama, for instance, has more to offer than its canal - although this is arguably one of the greatest engineering feats of all time and worth discovering. Its exciting coastline and mountainous interior provide breathtaking natural beauty and adventure.
Costa Rica has some of the most romantic sunsets in the world, especially on its simple, beautiful beaches. The country also offers all kinds of adventurous terrain perfect for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding.

Belize is another popular country for couples. Despite its size, this country is full of amazing discoveries from ancient Mayan ruins to amazing snorkeling, and several wonderful islands.
Central America is a romantic destination off the beaten path. It provides the warmth, sea, and sunsets couples crave but without the crowded tourism of its more popular counterparts. This region is perfect for starting your lives with both romance and adventure.
