Romantic Getaway Vacation in the Caribbean

Many couples escape the monotony and stress of everyday life by enjoying romantic getaways in the Caribbean. Stay at luxurious beachfront resorts or retreat to the privacy of Caribbean villas. Explore the scenic landscape of the islands on foot, by horseback, ATV or car. Swim in secluded coves surrounded by palm trees or lush rainforests. Valentine’s Day in the Caribbean might include viewing the colourful underwater world filled with marine life while snorkelling or scuba diving. The opportunities and activities are endless, but vary from island to island.

 

Barbados

 

Located in the archipelago of the Lesser Antilles islands, Barbados offers some unique attractions that provide an interesting way to spend quality time with a significant other. Stroll through the picturesque Flower Forest Botanical Gardens. The site features over 50 acres of tropical flowers, plants and trees, along with a natural wild garden. Paved paths meander through the tropical setting, dotted with ornamental benches along the way.

In the central part of the island, in the community of Speightstown, lies the Harrison’s Cave. A tram ride through the caverns provides the perfect opportunity for snuggling while viewing the crystal clear ponds, flowing water and miles of unusual formations.

Cayman Islands

 

The Turtle Farm is a popular attraction and provides guests the chance to swim with young turtles, as they learn survival skills in the open water. The location also has a tropical rainforest environment with scenic walking trails where visitors enjoy viewing the many native exotic plants and 53 species of butterflies that call the island home. Interact with marine life at dolphin cove or indulge in a horseback ride along the beach.



Georgetown is one of the larger island cities. Enjoy a fine meal at any of the local restaurants, go shopping or experience the nightlife at one of the local bars or nightclubs. The city also offers tours of the local brewery or the rum distillery.

 

Jamaica

 

Couples looking for a unique romantic getaway often travel to the south coast of Jamaica, the location of the YS Estate. The proprietors of this cattle/horse ranch allow visitors to enjoy the splendour of the YS Falls. Pack a quick romantic lunch and take in the view of this seven tiered cascading water fall. This secluded location also offers guests the opportunity of taking a dip in the vast wading pool, fed by underground springs. For those looking for adventure, the location also offers canopy and river tube rides.

Rent canoes or kayaks and find a secluded location to while away the hours in complete privacy. Journey to the top of the cliffs overlooking the beach and revel in a romantic evening in a mood set by the setting tropical sun.

 

St. Lucia

 

Besides pristine beaches and crystal clear water, this jewel in the Caribbean features mountainous terrain covered in lush rainforests. Blackbeard and other notorious pirates also favoured the island and many locations acquired names from this history of swashbuckling. Adventurous couples might enjoy a thrill seeking opportunity that offers guests the chance to see the top of the world on an aerial ride followed by zip line rides that traverse the treetops and end with a guided rainforest hike.
