Edward & Bella spent hot honeymoon in Brazil

Knowing that "Twilight" fans want to know everything they can about the upcoming movie, which opens Nov. 18, we've gathered some information about the honeymoon scenes. Should you have the funds and the desire to recreate Mr. and Mrs. Cullen's brief tropical trip, here you go.
In "Breaking Dawn" the book, Edward sweeps Bella off to Isle Esme for their honeymoon. The island, located near Rio de Janeiro, was given to Edward's adoptive mother by her husband, Carlisle.
Once there, Edward whisks his human bride inside a beautiful and enormous house on the beach — where he's turned up the heat to a sweat-causing level in an attempt to, uh, make cold-skinned vampire and human wedding-night contact a little less chilly.
Feather pillows are destroyed! Headboards are gouged! Bella is impregnated! Once that's over, the newlyweds enjoy the island. They snorkel, they visit parrots, they swim with porpoises (who disappear when Edward comes near). And then, Bella suddenly finds out she's expecting their half-vampire daughter, and the nice quiet honeymoon escape is over.
Since there's no real Isle Esme, the film came as close as possible. Filming took place mostly in two spots — Rio of course, and the preserved Portuguese colonial town of Paraty. As in: I want to rock and roll all night, and Paraty every day.
Paraty has 44 beaches to choose from. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson swam in the bay at Saco de Mamangua. That's where the movie still of them frolicking in a breathtaking waterfall was taken.
Bella and Edward stayed in a home owned by the Cullens, but the actors themselves stayed at  a hotel, the Pousada do Ouro when they were in Paraty.
When the movie was filming in Rio, Stewart and Pattinson stayed at Copacabana Palace, a seaside Art Deco hotel where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers once danced.
Brazil impressed the actors with its beauty, but apparently the country's weather worked hard to make chill-and-damp-loving vampires feel at home.
"(Brazil) was really amazing the day we got there, and really beautiful and warm and everything you'd expect," Pattinson told MTV at this summer's Comic-Con. "Then it suddenly, for the remainder of the shoot, was not only raining but like hurricane storms. ... It was kind of like having a honeymoon in England. We were playing board games instead of, like, making love on the beach.
