The top five world-wide destinations are Palau; Norwegian Fjords; Costa Rica; Kerala, India; and Kenya. Each has their unique landscape and activities free of carbon foot prints for couples who want a honeymoon to remember. But there is another contender in this category that deserves more attention.
