Nicaragua is home to blissful beaches, romantic adventures within volcanic landscapes and the chance to step back in time surrounded by striking colonial architecture. The best part? You and your loved one can explore to your hearts content without a crowd in sight.

A Central American nation with a variety of landscapes to explore, and a host of boutique hotels scattered across lakes and coastline, Nicaragua is the ultimate barefoot luxury destination, and the beaches are the perfect place to spend the first days of post-wedded bliss with your partner.

If you're more into your scenic adventures, there are plenty of volcanoes to climb with a range of terrain difficulties to put you to the test. San Cristobal is the highest, Cerro Negro is a shorter more rugged climb, or for something a bit more dramatic, Masaya is great for magma spotting and short hikes through lava formations. For a less strenuous expedition, perhaps a gentle boat tour of Lake Nicaragua is more your thing, or how about some wildlife spotting as you explore the lake by kayak?

Throw in some honeymoon culture with a visit to Granada to marvel at 17th century Spanish colonial architecture, visit one of the churches and delve into local history.

The good news is that because Nicaragua is so small you can combine all this in one heavenly and holistic honeymoon.
