If you are keen to get some winter sun on your honeymoon before the festive season, or you fancy spending your first Christmas together somewhere exotic, there is a huge choice of destinations that are fabulous in December. You could opt for hot, white sand and deep azure lagoons in Thailand, sailing in the Caribbean, plunging gorges and thick jungles in Mexico, or misty forests, winding rivers and majestic volcanoes in Costa Rica.
North India is wonderful too, as are many parts of Australasia. Or, you could go in completely the opposite weather direction, to the ends of the earth and an ice-white oblivion that’s both spectacular and unique: Antarctica.
Or if you are looking for a honeymoon on the slopes, the ski season begins mid December. With fewer crowds and off-peak prices, it can be a great time to go skiing.
