    Travel agent Melinda Webb discusses how to plan a honeymoon, including some great tips for planning a unique honeymoon.

    Melinda Webb: Hi, I am Melinda Webb, owner of Dreams and Destinations Travel and now we are going to talk about how to make your honeymoon really special.

    Host: What options do I have for making my honeymoon unique?

    Melinda Webb: Really, it's just your imagination, anything that you can think of. We pretty much can do now, given the right amount of time and the right budgets and so forth. You can have everything from intimate candlelight experiences in the rooms to candlelight dinners on the beach. There are certain destinations where you have small islands where you can actually go to a private island owned by the island and you can actually sleep under the stars together as a couple. So, really there is no limit to what can be done.

    Host: How important are excursions on my honeymoon?

    Melinda Webb: I think excursions are really important, especially, if you take a longer honeymoon because your first few days if you want to rest. But then you really want to go and see the destinations to experience that, to experience the culture. You don't want to go to Jamaica and miss out on the planning that they have which is just fantastic. In Mexico you definitely don't want to miss out on Mayan Ruins which is just phenomenal so and there is a lot in every destination. When you go into Thailand you got elephant safaris. When you go into Egypt you have got hot air balloon rides over the desert. So, by just staying in your hotel, it's good for a first couple of days if you just stay there then you can probably miss out on the destination which is half the fun of where you are going anyways.
