Do you and your spouse need to shake up your routine? After many years of marriage, a vacation devoted to just the two of you can spice up your life and refresh your bond. Your second honeymoon might even be more fulfilling than your first.
At Divi Resorts, we’re experts on honeymoons of all types. We’ve gathered a few tips here for planning your second honeymoon.
Plan It Together
Many couples choose to go on a second honeymoon to celebrate a milestone like a tenth or twentieth anniversary. But the only important thing is that the timing works for both of you. Figure it out together, and make arrangements together! As a shared experience, planning can be fun.
Decide What the Trip Is About
Do you want to spend most of your time relaxing on the beach with a book? Would you rather learn the ins and outs of the island’s history together? Explore the underwater world together in the best dive spots in the tropics? Or wine and dine the hours away aboard a sailboat? If you and your spouse enjoy different activities, try alternating days spent doing each of your favorites.
Learn a New Activity Together
Learning something new together—whether it’s kayaking, surfing, diving, sailing, or a more land-lubbing skill like wine tasting—is a great way to strengthen your bond.
Leave Some Time to Chill
Try not to overschedule your vacation together. Don’t pack in so many activities that you need a vacation from your vacation! Make sure to leave some time for spontaneity and relaxation.
Give a Gift
Reignite the passion and intimacy from the early days by giving each other romantic gifts. Most Divi Resorts offer in-room honeymoon specials that include champagne in commemorative glasses, the bed in your suite strewn with flower petals and personalized touches like turndown service. Ask your Front Desk for details once you arrive.
Don’t Overload Your Expectations
Remember, a single trip won’t solve all your relationship problems. Keep a sense of humor and try to take any hiccups in stride. You’re on an exciting adventure together! That’s what marriage is all about.
