Thanks to a little invention called food blogging, getting in the kitchen has never been hotter. These days, honeymooners are feeding body and soul with cooking classes in destinations from Mexico to Thailand. Sessions often include market tours and tastings.
The concept, which originated in restaurants, sources food, ingredients and experiences as close to the earth and local surroundings as possible. In addition to eateries, locavore is also a major trend at spas. Bonus: It is green living at its best.
Tour operators are now offering packages that help honeymooners who want to give back. The adventures can include monitoring dolphins, hatching leatherback turtles or planting trees in the Amazon.
With vacation time at a low, these quickie getaways offer ample romance over a long weekend.
