Honeymoon Destination: Iguazu Falls, Argentina
There are few places on earth that are as naturally spectacular as Iguazu Falls. These waterfalls stretch for twenty-three kilometers and create a natural border between Argentina and Brazil. One of the Wonders of the World, the area is lush with hiking trails, rainforests, and breathtaking views.
The area is ideal for newly-wedded couples looking for a serene and intimate honeymoon. Together they can explore the area’s indigenous tribal culture and visit the Jesuit ruins while keeping an eye out for giant butterflies and colourful toucans.
Couples can stay at the only full-service luxury resort in the area, the Iguazú Grand Resort, Spa & Casino. The hotel offers a honeymoon package geared towards LGBTQ couples that features dinners, excursions, and other romantic trifle that would make any honeymoon unforgettable.
Argentina also happens to the first and only country in South America that has legalized same-sex marriage. It is a gay-friendly country whose capital Buenos Aires is only a 90-minute flight away from Iguazu Falls.
Couples can plan a side trip to the gorgeous city and visit the many cafes and museums during the day. Nights should be reserved for tango dancing and shows at the array of clubs to choose from.
