On their honeymoon in Peru, newlyweds seeking luxurious travel experiences in a romantic setting will fall in love all over again. In what other destination can you spend two weeks lounging on picturesque beaches while admiring breathtaking sunsets, searching for pink dolphins along the mighty and expansive Amazon River, dining at esteemed international restaurants, and exploring one of the most renowned world wonders? In Peru, honeymoon adventures are undoubtedly awaited.
As breathtaking scenery blankets Peru, selecting an ideal honeymoon location becomes an enviable quandary with abundant sublime options to consider. Indeed, the most formidable aspect of organizing an idyllic honeymoon in Peru will be selecting from the plethora of magnificent alternatives that we, as your dependable travel consultant, shall present to you. To assist you in organizing a honeymoon of a lifetime in Peru, we have compiled a hand-selected list of romantic honeymoon activities and destinations in the South American nation, drawing on our knowledge of customized travel in Peru.
Consider dedicating an initial night of your honeymoon in Peru to a couple of nights in Lima, where you can indulge in the city's exquisite cuisine and romantic attractions. Located at the Parque de la Reserva, El Circuito Mágico del Agua, Lima's Magic Water Circuit, is an excellent destination for the evening. Walk hand in hand alongside and even beneath the numerous iridescent-colored, flowing fountains that are accompanied by a laser display and music.
We highly recommend the JW Marriott Hotel as a lodging option for a remarkably opulent travel experience. Gazing out at the sweeping views of the Pacific, you'll find that the Marriott's blend of elegance and top-notch comforts makes it a standout spot for those seeking an exclusive getaway in Peru. The centrally located luxury hotel offers scenic Pacific Ocean views and abundant amenities for an indulgent Peru vacation.
Prominent dining establishments in Lima consist of Maido (helmed by Chef Mitsuharu Tsumura), Astrid y Gaston (founded by Chef Gaston Acurio and his spouse, Pastry Chef Astrid Gutsche), and Central (helmed by Chef Virgilio Marinez). A romantic evening can be spent at any of the aforementioned establishments, where one can savor their unforgettable tasting menus in an exquisite and distinctive ambiance.
We will reserve a private table for you at La Mar, another Gaston Acurio restaurant renowned for its many variations of the raw fish dish, some of which are said to have aphrodisiacal properties, because seafood aficionados cannot spend their honeymoon in Peru without sampling ceviche.
Consider taking a brief flight from Lima to Iquitos, the capital of the Amazon Rainforest in Peru, in order to embark on an opulent honeymoon cruise along the Amazon River. Five-star yachts MV Aqua and M/F Delfin Cruises, both of which are based in Iquitos, feature opulent suites with expansive panoramic windows. Following a day filled with engaging land or water-based activities, you and your companions can unwind in the comfort of your California king-sized bed while watching the tranquil river flow by.
These opulent Amazon cruises vessels also serve cuisine prepared by chefs of international renown using local, fresh ingredients. Additionally, both cruise ships have jacuzzis situated on their observation platforms. Imagine starting your married life drifting on the serene waters of the Peruvian Amazon, where luxury meets adventure on a ship that's got it all.
An additional memorable inclusion in your personalized honeymoon package to Peru would be a flight to one of the pristine northern beaches of the country. We can reserve a luxurious suite for you at Arennas Mancora, which is perched on the balmy and picturesque coastline of Mancora. Mancora presents itself as an exceptionally romantic honeymoon destination due to its pristine sandy shores, warm waters of the tropical ocean, and breathtaking ocean vistas.
Newlyweds who are staying at Arennas Mancora and have direct beach access can spend their days engaging in a variety of activities, such as equestrian riding, surfing, water skiing, or simply basking in the sun on the beach. After soaking up the sun or riding the waves, newlyweds can indulge in Arennas Mancora's gourmet eats, unwind with top-notch spa services, and take a dip in the chic pool area.
A visit to the New World Wonder, Machu Picchu, and the Imperial City of Cusco would be an essential component of your honeymoon. At Casa Cartagena Boutique Hotel and Spa, you're treated to top-notch service amidst a blend of classic colonial charm and serene countryside elegance. Beyond its array of comforts and delectable food, the hotel in Cusco boasts a spa designed to pamper couples with an indulgent escape. Embedded in the historic core of Cusco, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, romantic strolls through the locality during the wee hours of the morning or evening are highly recommended for couples.
Proceed to Machu Picchu via the opulent Hiram Bingham train, where you will spend the night following your visit to the historic site at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge. A serene hotel nestled in the lush landscape near the ruins offers a peaceful retreat. By virtue of its close proximity to the ancient citadel, Machu Picchu can be visited well in advance of the throngs. Soak in the hot tub beneath the stars at the luxurious hotel while taking in breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Having dined on the hotel's exquisite menu will further solidify your resolve to embark on your honeymoon in Peru.
