The Paris of South America & the birthplace of tango: Buenos Aires
Paris is undoubtedly a classic destination for newlyweds, but if you are looking for unique honeymoon destinations, why not try the city known as the Paris of South America? Buenos Aires is the capital city of Argentina, and it is a bustling cultural center, popular with tourists from around the world. Walking down the city’s boulevards, the French-style architecture might have you thinking that you’ve teleported to Paris…that is until you spot the tango dancers on the street. Activities that may interest newly married couples include wine tastings, tango lessons and shows, and a stay in a romantic Argentina estancia on the outskirts of the city.
Bustling beaches & bright lights of the city: Rio de Janeiro
Looking for a more tropical vibe without sacrificing the nightlife of the big city? Rio de Janeiro is the place for you! This Brazilian city borders the Atlantic Ocean and offers seemingly endless stretches of beautiful, sandy beaches.

Top romantic tip: plan a trip to the top of Sugarloaf Mountain around sunset for a gorgeous view of the city and beach below.
