Don’t worry about the details; we’ve got all the info you need on where to go for the most romantic Valentine’s Day getaway EVER. Maui, Hawaii Looking for a picturesque beach to share with your significant other? For a tropical Valentine’s Day retreat, there’s nowhere quite like Maui, Hawaii. There are plenty of romantic hotels that will provide you with every comfort. Pack a picnic lunch and head to one of the stunning beaches for a truly romantic meal. If you’re craving some excitement, make sure to try surfing, snorkeling, or even scuba diving. It’s the perfect choice to any adventurous couple! Ocho Ríos, Jamaica If you want to heat things up this Valentine’s Day, whisk your significant other away to Ocho Ríos, in Jamaica. Long considered one of the most romantic spots for couples (Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller honeymooned there), this spot is the perfect place to spend some quality time. You can take a long soak in the ocean, hike through gorgeous jungles, and share a candlelit dinner with a view of the turquoise water that will leave you both breathless. Napa Valley, California It’s easy to eat, drink, and be merry when you’re traveling through wine country! If you and your boo enjoy sampling some quality wines, this should be the trip of your dreams. There are countless wineries for you to explore at Napa County; some come complete with extensive tours, tasting journeys, and gourmet dinners. Check in to a cozy bed and breakfast in the area and get ready for a trip your taste buds will love. Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico There’s nowhere in the world quite like Mexico, and the Yucatan Peninsula is the ideal spot for a perfect Valentine’s Day getaway. You can explore the local scenery for ages: diving into underground pools, strolling along the beach, or checking out the simply magnificent view. After that, you can check out the fantastic nightlife and grab some local food. If you’d like a more low-key Valentine’s Day experience, the two of you can simply soak up the sun on a pristine beach. Lake Tahoe, California It doesn’t get much more romantic than Lake Tahoe, and with good reason. Its gorgeous views are sure to make anyone’s heart skip a beat.
