California Minimoon Ideas

Planning both a wedding and a honeymoon can be stressful enough. But what happens when your wedding budget goes overboard, and what's left to spend on your honeymoon is less than you had originally planned? Does that mean that you are resigned to a lackluster honeymoon staycation? Absolutely not! There are still plenty of choices to be had for the happy wedding couple, even if this means investing in a mini-moon and saving that larger getaway for a future date!

Here are three great mini - honeymoon ideas for couples living in California that are easy to travel to, and economical as well.

Cruise - A short 3 or 4 night cruise is a great way to spend your honeymoon! Not only will you be able to get away, but you will have some serious fun to boot! Picture you and yours sailing the ocean, having a blast singing karaoke, attending a heart-stopping magic show, and visiting a local farm making artisan cheeses. At night, the ocean waves lull you two love birds asleep.

Los Cabos - Dramatic desert backdrop and a mecca for foodies, Los Cabos is a veritable wonderland of excitement and exploration! Also known as a "dual destination" Cabo can be split in to two very distinct areas:

Cabo San Lucas is where folks like to party, let their hair down, and really enjoy themselves while visiting lots of fun bars and restaurants, and the famous Medano beach. Experience fun activities like wine tours, sport fishing, and snorkeling at Lovers Beach, a lovely little beach only accessible by water taxi.

On the quieter side, San Jose del Cabo, has an authentic Mexican feel with colonial architecture, boutique resorts and villas, beautiful churches and cobblestone streets. It is truly perfect for relaxation and the enjoyment of this charming city. Picture strolling through the many galleries in their art district, while sipping on a margarita, all while enjoying the serenity and beautiful scenery of this sleepy town.

Puerto Vallarta - Picture the authentic sights and sounds of Mexico, a city booming with cultural experiences and gorgeous resorts. Perfect for a California couple looking for a quick getaway that is easier on the budget. Puerto Vallarta will delight your senses as you enjoy their world class spas, exciting activities, and warm blonde sand beaches. The climate in Puerto Vallarta is very similar to that of Hawaii, so if you are looking for a destination that averages over 300 days of sun every year, this would be a wonderful choice. Honeymoon couples can plan on visiting the famous Malecon Boardwalk, strolling through the Romance District, or enjoying mouthwatering dinners overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
