Caribbean babymoons for a romantic vacation

Finding out that your family is about to get a little bigger with the addition of a child can be exhilarating and exciting. It can also be nerve racking, or sometimes all of these feelings mixed into one. One great way to prepare for your baby's arrival is, interestingly enough, to take a vacation.

Well, yes, you should do all of these things and more, but you should also make sure to take time out of your schedule to relax with your partner and mentally prepare for your expanding family. One way to do this is through a romantic vacation, particularly speaking, a babymoon in the Caribbean. But what exactly is a babymoon, and why choose the Caribbean?

Key West and the Florida Keys for a romantic vacation

The charming Florida Keys are known for many, and vastly different, reasons. With a Caribbean climate, sweeping islands, beautiful resorts, a plethora of nightlife, restaurants, and bar options, ocean activities everywhere, and sunsets that could draw envy from the Northern Lights, the keys beckon romantic couples with the promise of an unforgettable trip. In fact, the keys are reported to attract around 2 million visitors a year, with a large amount of visitors traveling as a couple seeking a romantic island escape. Some of these couples choose to solely visit the most popular island, Key West, while others choose to visit the entire chain of islands.

Generally speaking, visitors to the Florida Keys, from Miami and beyond, stay on Key West and travel up the keys to visit some of the area's attractions, but if you rent a car, or drive your own down to the islands, you can easily do the opposite and stay on one of the other main islands and drive down into Key West. Either way, you'll experience beautiful coastline on both sides as you drive on and off of tiny islands and the bridges that link them. To learn more about how to experience a romantic vacation in the Florida Keys, and what it will cost, read more below..
