A relaxing time to wrap up the last few months of child-free living, babymoons are all about enjoying peace and quiet before the onslaught of late-night diaper changes and feedings. Additionally, it’s a wonderful way to put your feet up just as your pregnancy is starting to take its toll on your energy levels. Here are a few spots you’ll want to consider for your Caribbean babymoon.
Babymoon in Aruba
You want your babymoon to be as relaxing and easy as possible, which means you’ll likely prefer staying away from destinations that require extra travel stress. Aruba is exceptionally easy to reach from any major hub in the United States, the language barrier is nearly non-existent and the island itself is laid-back and filled with positive vibes. Choose a luxury resort with plenty of adult amenities, like the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino—it has its own private island filled with friendly flamingos!
Babymoon in the Bahamas
Don’t think your pregnancy symptoms can wait for the multiple-hour flight to Aruba? The Bahamas require a surprisingly quick and easy trip, so you’re in the air and on the beach faster than you ever thought possible. The new resort destination Baha Mar provides ultra-luxury accommodations, so you can enjoy golfing, the spa and world-class dining all in one spot.
Babymoon in the Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is another reachable Caribbean babymoon destination. The plethora of hotels in Punta Cana are easily accessible via private transfer from the airport and once you’re at the beach, there’s no need to ever leave. There’s a range of resort types, whether you’re looking for budget-friendly (baby’s are expensive, right?) or all-out luxury. However, if you do want to leave your resort and your pregnancy isn’t so far along that you can’t enjoy a little active adventure, head into the less resort-driven parts of Dominican Republic, like the historic capital or lush rainforests.
Babymoon in Puerto Rico
Don’t have time to get your passport renewed before the baby arrives? Then Puerto Rico it is! There are other reasons why you’d choose this Caribbean escape, though. Puerto Rico was massively hit by last year’s hurricane season and its tourism industry severely suffered, but many hotels and resorts, like La Concha Renaissance San Juan Resort, are open and just as breathtaking as before! Some beachgoers skip over Puerto Rico for a nearby island, but as long as you verify with your beach hotel that conditions are up to par, you’ll enjoy the calm before crowds flock back to this paradise. The population heavily depends on tourism dollars to get their communities back on their feet, so picking Puerto Rico for your babymoon not only gives you and your partner the relaxing luxury getaway you crave, but also boosts the island’s economy.
Babymoon in the U.S. Virgin Islands
If it’s all-luxury, all the time when you vacation and you’d rather steer clear of the more populated islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands are right for you. Choose from St. Croix, St. John and St.Thomas, or visit all three! You can even rent or hire a catamaran and spend your getaway sailing between the isles. Regardless, you’re sure to experience breathtaking views, extravagant hotel stays and mouthwatering fine dining.
