With this 2020 already here and the multiple trends just around the corner, San Ignacio Resort Hotel has summarized some of the best romantic travel trends as published by Bridal Guide, Travel Bash, and Vacation.com. What are the tendencies taking over the romantic landscape this year? Here’s some of the movements that have gotten popular this year and here’s how we can help you plan the perfect escape with your soulmate.
1. LET US TIE THE KNOT
“For those of you who are dropping hints to the BF”
Lit candles, fireworks, flowers… how will you pop the big question? Every year nervous men or women struggle to think of original, romantic and exciting ways to ask that special one to spend their lives together, well a Romantic Concierge can definitely help (Bridal Guide). Maybe a picnic at the picturesque Mountain Pine Ridge? A candlelit dinner in a private garden with the delicious culinary creations of the Running W Restaurant team? YES, I DO.
2. RUNAWAY BRIDE & GROOM
“Intimate ceremony, celebratory meal, some flowers and photos — without the hassle of an engorged guest list”
Who needs to deal with a guest list of more than 100+ guest, selecting stationary or Save the Dates when you can focus all your energy on nurturing your relationship? Bridal Guide states that planned elopements are becoming more and more popular in the romantic travel sector– perhaps a switch from the impromptu elopements, sorry Las Vegas. Picture it… you and your beau getting hitched at an ancient Maya temple? We can certainly see the appeal in that!
The Many Moons of Love
3. THE BABYMOON
“Taking a babymoon is the perfect way for parents-to-be to indulge in some kid-free pampering, enjoy each other’s company, and take advantage of sleeping in”
For expecting parents, this is the opportunity to take a little detour from the planning and preparation of the upcoming family member and also, recharge their energy before settling down for a couple of months. Relax and take it easy, have a mocktail and massage your worries away with an in-room wellness treatment. Source: Travel Bash
4. THE MINI-MOON
“The idea of the mini-moon is perfect for couples who can’t take time off for their wedding and honeymoon all at once”
A short weekend getaway right after your nuptials. Or straying off the crowds after your destination wedding. Mini Moons do not replace the traditional long honeymoon but it is now the perfect option for couples who have limited time or are on a tight budget post-wedding (source: Vacation.com). Belize offers the perfect destination for this type of getaway as it is only a short flight away from many US hubs and a wonderful portfolio of activities for the intrepid duo.
5. THE FAMILY MOON
“A time to bond together as a new family”
Known as the “honeymoon for second marriages”. Plan a fun and adventurous getaway with the children to celebrate your commitment to your spouse and the kids (Source: Bridal Guide) . Kick your new family into high gear with fun activities like visiting ancient caves, rappelling down the Black Hole Drop, or venture off to a cooking class with a Maya Community Cooking & Pottery Tour.
