Your Honeymoon Registry Questions Answered: How Long Does It Take To Receive Gifts?

In the latest edition of “Your Registry Questions Answered”, we’re dishing out tips and advice surrounding a common gift redemption question.

Be sure to submit your questions for the next edition over on our Facebook page.

Q: How Long Will It Take To Receive Our Honeymoon Gifts?

A: Wanderable has one of the fastest redemption times in the industry!

By far the fastest redemption option for couples is the ACH Bank Transfer. These are processed within (1) business day but please allow up to (3) additional business days for the funds to appear in your bank account.

Check redemptions are MAILED within (3) business days of the redemption and delivery time will vary by location. Please allow up to (10) business days to receive a bank check in the mail. All redemption options are FREE.

We are always working to minimize the time it takes to transfer gifts to you. Other honeymoon registries require up to 13 business days to send gifts. We think that is pretty ridiculous!

The 6 Best Hotels in Los Cabos for a Honeymoon

Los Cabos is one of Mexico’s most picturesque and popular honeymoon destinations.

Along the Corredor Turistico, a highway that stretches from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo, you’ll find world-class resorts, which are popular among wealthy tourists, honeymooners, and celebrities.

Read on for our top hotel picks for a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon getaway to Los Cabos, Mexico.

Las Ventanas al Paraíso, a Rosewood Resort The name translates to “window to paradise,” which is exactly the feeling you get upon checking into your spacious suite or villa, each with a private patio. The resort takes romance seriously: There’s an entire department dedicated to the art of love. Whether you book a live musical serenade, surprise your spouse by cooking him/her dinner (under the supervision of a talented Las Ventanas chef), or take a sunset horseback ride down the beach, your stay is guaranteed to be unforgettable.

One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos There are a few reasons why celebs like Jennifer Anniston and Ryan Seacrest are regulars at Palmilla: The butler service is top-notch, two of the restaurants are helmed by celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and the resort also has direct access to Playa Palmilla, one of Cabo’s few swimming beaches.

The Resort at Pedregal It’s impossible not to soak in the relaxing honeymoon vibes at a resort where every room and suite features an infinity-edge plunge pool, perfect for daily dips out on your private terrace overlooking the ocean. Other highlights include: treatments inspired by Mexican folk healing at the Luna y Mar spa, the carved-into-the-rocks El Farallón restaurant, and walkable accessibility to downtown Cabo San Lucas, accessed via the hotel’s private tunnel entrance.

Hotel El Ganzo This unique boutique hotel opened in 2013 and continues to stand out with its artsy offerings. There are in-house artists, performances by world-renowned musicians, and weekly movie nights on the roof. Located at Puerto Los Cabos, the hotel has a rare swimmable beach, two pools (including a rooftop infinity pool), four restaurants, and a spa. Rooms are cool and comfortable and each comes with either an ocean or marina view.

Esperanza, an Auberge Resort Design-conscious and outdoorsy couples will want to make Espernaza their honeymoon home base, if only for the layout of their room: Each has a wall that can disappear, creating an indoor-outdoor flow onto a private veranda with sweeping views of both the Sea of Cortez and Punta Ballena (“Whale Point,” past which humpbacks migrate in winter). Be sure to make time for various activities at the resort, such as tequila tastings, cooking classes, and fitness classes.

Montage Los Cabos The newest kid on the block opened summer 2018 with 122 guest rooms and suites, plus 52 furnished residences. Couples can post up on the shores of Santa Maria Bay—a swimmable beach with reefs for snorkeling just beyond—or by one of the three idyllic pools. Unwind at the 40,000-square-foot full-service SpaMontage, or challenge one another to a round of golf on the Fred Couples-designed course. You can also expect healthy eats: The resort has a partnership with celebrity nutritionist Kelly LeVeque, who helped create balanced restaurant dishes using seasonal ingredients—so you can keep that wedding bod going through the honeymoon.

5 Must-Do Honeymoon Activities in Portugal

Portugal is tailored for a dreamy honeymoon getaway.

Gorgeous riverside streets line its historic capital city of Lisbon, medieval castles sit proudly throughout hilltop towns, world-renowned wines and pastries are celebrated countrywide, and all across its lengthy Atlantic Coast is the ever-present prospect of discovering a perfect, unexplored beach.

While there’s an endless activities list for newlyweds, the following experiences are at the very top for any honeymoon getaway.

Where to Go

No trip to Portugal is complete without exploring Lisbon, the country’s centrally-located capital city. The city is a lovely maze of winding alleyways which weave between colorful buildings, tiny wine bars and fresh seafood restaurants en route to eventual stunning hilltop views (so frequently referred to that they’re known locally as miradouros). Vintage trams rattle and chug through the city’s streets, giving way to trendy cocktail lounges, historic landmarks, outdoor markets, museums and plenty more.

Pink sunsets are frequent, and with them, the beautifully melancholic sound of Portuguese fado will fill Lisbon’s bars and clubs as the evening unfolds – a musical translation of the old, romantic soul that Lisbon really is.

What to Do

The infectiously dramatic sounds of Fado will fill cafes, bars, restaurants and romantic hearts throughout all of Portugal, though it’s most popular in Lisbon. Make an evening out of a performance, with dinner, drinks, loving contemplation and cultural understanding at Clube de Fado, Sr. Fado, or wherever you hear that recognizable heart and soul being sung as you stroll through the city.

Where to Eat

Don’t let the long lines at Pasteis de Belem deter you from experiencing the otherworldly deliciousness of the sweet egg tart pastries that have made this Lisbon bakery famous since its inception in 1837. The recipe hasn’t changed since then, and the recognition only continues to grow, with this establishment recently being crowned the most reviewed restaurant on the planet.

The namesake pastries – buttery, crisp egg custards that don’t shy from sugar – are known as Pasteis de Nata throughout the rest of the region, but the Pasteis de Belem are built on a secret family recipe which warrant the practically permanent queue. Move past the line and opt for table service in the back dining room for expedited delivery of your treats.

Where to Drink

In Porto, Calem wine lounge can bring you into their 160-year-old cellars, spill some of their classic methods for producing the world-renowned Port, and even show you a 5D film (tastings included). Outside of the city, wine resorts like L’And Vineyards and Six Senses Douro Valley compliment intermittent and informative tastings with vineyard tours, grape crushing classes, and even restorative grape-infused treatments in luxurious wine spas.

Where to Stay

Situated on a hilltop overlooking the rolling wine vineyards and winding Douro River below, the Six Senses Douro Valley focuses on wellness, relaxation and rejuvenation. Guests are invited to partake in activities like yoga, pilates, meditation and even guided tree climbing. Three pools, an award-winning spa and rooms with panoramic river views ensure that your days have a healthy dose of leisure time to balance (or overtake) a more active approach to well-being.
