If your style leans heavier toward darker shades or winter whites and silvers, a November wedding might speak more to you than a seaside ceremony. Whether you make the crispness of late fall or the convenience of family gatherings around Thanksgiving, one truth is for sure: when you’ve made it official, you’ll be more than ready to find the best honeymoon destinations in November and flee to your locale of choice. Thanks to the time of year, plenty of destinations - from the Caribbean and South America to Europe - present an off-season experience ideal for budget-seekers.

Here, a guide to the best honeymoon destinations in November.

Santiago, Chile

If you love Denver, you’ll fall instantly for Santiago, since the infamous Andes Mountains provide a breathtaking backdrop to this capital. Chile is one of the best honeymoon destinations in November because the weather is near-ideal with sunny days and slightly chilly nights. While you’re here, you can spend a few days getting lost in the metro as you explore Plaza de Armas, the National History Museum, the Metropolitan Cathedral and take a ride on their funicular that overlooks the area. Once you’ve had your fill of city life, rent a car and make your way to their many renowned wine regions. Regardless if you head north or south, chances are high you and your partner will find at least a dozen whites and reds you adore. (Maybe even as much as you love one another!)
Where to Stay: While you’re in Santiago, there’s no better hotel with a better view than the W Santiago. In addition to their plush rooms that come complete with a secluded terrace, you can also upgrade to their honeymoon package that includes in-room or buffet breakfasts, drinks and a sweet surprise called ‘Play Me’—which you’ll have to order to check out. Their signature restaurant—Karai—features Peruvian/Japanese fusion fare and is definitely one you’ll tell your kids about one day. In the wine country, consider Casa Silva, where you can stay in a 100-year-old boutique hotel that was once the family’s home. Here, you can tour the vineyards, witness the winemaking process and catch a late, champagne-brunch at their on-site restaurant.

Montego Bay, Jamaica

Skip Kokomo and instead opt to honeymoon in Jamaica for your November vacay. How come? This month is at the tail-end of rainy season, meaning you’ll experience far less showers than other times of the year. Considering Jamaica is usually saved from the hurricane belt, you’ll also appreciate the calm island vibe. Instead of heading to the capital city where cruise ships unite, send yourselves off the grid to the legendary Montego Bay, designed for honeymooners. Here you can explore picture-perfect beaches like Doctor’s Cave and Walter Fletcher, or get your thrills at an amusement park. Or if ya want? Just order in room service and sun yourself for a whole week. It is your honeymoon after all!
Where to Stay: Zoetry Montego Bay
While some vacations call for endless exploring and deciphering new languages, there are others where nothing sounds better than all-inclusive. That is other than ‘luxury’ all-inclusive! At this five-star resort, you’ll have an oceanfront view, endless dining and booze options (including 24-hour room service for when, ahem, you work up the munchies!) and extra perks! These include complimentary 45-minute motorized snorkeling tour and a 20-minute wellness experience.

Hampshire, England

What brings a twosome together is often their mutual love for activities, foods and experiences. And when you both have the same fascination with the British family or basically anything in England? That’s enough to propose on the spot. For a November honeymoon in the United Kingdom, consider traveling past the city of London where you’ve both likely been and set your Google Maps to Hampshire, in the countryside. As a county on the Southern coast of England, it’s technically in Winchester, the capital city of England. Here you can explore small towns, hike forests and even see the cliffs by the ocean - all while having tea, of course.
Where to Stay: Chewton Glen
On the edge of the historic New Forest Park is this five-star country house that’s rated the second Relais & Chateaux in the world, as it’s made of 70 individually designed guest rooms and suites. In addition to an award-winning on-site restaurant, it also offers a new spin on a honeymoon oasis: a treehouse! Want to wake up with unparalleled, Instagram-worthy views of the rolling English hills as you snuggle together in your robes. There’s no better place than here!

Mayakoba, Mexico

You might have a ‘been-there, done-that’ attitude toward a honeymoon in Mexico — but before you write off this country, consider Mayakoba — one of the best honeymoon destinations in November. Created as an exclusive, luxurious oasis, it’s far from the party scene in Cancun. When it was created, biologists, geologists and engineers used inspiration from the lines of the earth to build around the area, making for stunning views, creative cuisine and endless options to explore. With only a handful of resorts, you’ll feel tucked away in your own private world as you explore the quaint heart of the region—El Pueblito—which was designed after an authentic Mexican village square. Here you can scour through boutiques and galleries, catch lunch and make it back to your suite for the sunset.
Where to Stay: Banyan Tree Mayakoba
Whether you stay at the main resort or the residences, you and your new spouse will be impressed with the fine attention to detail. Adjacent to the Mayan jungle, allow the breeze of the area to float you away as you enjoy daily breakfast, couples’ massages, private dinners and plenty of other honeymoon delights, without stress. Want to take a class at the El Pueblito Cooking School or go kayaking? The on-site concierge can take care of that, too.

Coachella Valley, California

Not just for festival season, Coachella Valley is one of the best California honeymoon destinations in November. Especially if you crave those undeniably-beautiful desert sunsets, there’s nothing quite like the romantic undertones of this region in the Western United States. Stretching across 45 miles from the shore of the Salton Sea to the tip-tops of the San Bernardino Mountains, you can spend your days hiking, lounging, splashing or enjoying the company of your favorite—and forever—plus one.
Where to Stay: The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage
As the name suggests, prepare to get lost in the splendor of this one-of-a-kind resort. Here, many of the suites include deep glimpses into the horizon, complete with soak tubs and honeymoon delights. Consider booking a couples’ massage, canoodling by the fire pit or putting up that ‘do not disturb’ if you please. Just try and see those stars, that like your love, go on forever.
