Here are 10 Fun Weekend Getaways for Couples:
For your first vacation as a couple: Fez, Morocco
The first trip with a new partner can really determine a couple’s future. Fortunately, we’ve chosen the right place for you to de-stress: Fez, Morocco.
Awaken your senses in Fes el Bali (the Medina of Fez), the oldest part of the city: a true spectacle for nose, eyes and ears thanks to the myriad of spices, local artifacts and interesting people surrounding you. You won’t even notice the scaffolding covering the crumbling buildings once you see the Madrasa Bou Inania, one of the few religious sites in Morocco accessible to non-Muslim visitors, founded around 1350 and recently renovated.
To really rev up your senses, visit the Chouara tannery. The intense smell and the bright colors of the dyeing vats arranged in a honeycomb pattern on the rooftops of Fez will be the image you will retain when you think back on your first trip to Morocco.
For nature-loving couples: Big Sky, Montana
Dreaming of a great adventure? Experience it in Big Sky, Montana. Just an hour’s drive from Big Sky, the vast landscapes of western Yellowstone Park will make you feel small, especially if you run into bison, Rocky Mountain sheep, wolves or even bears. Depending on the season, you can tame this wild land with a dog sledding expedition or, for an extra adrenaline rush, go whitewater rafting in Gallatin Canyon. For your romantic vacation, you can choose from a variety of accommodations, from “glamping” in luxury camping tents to cottages, ranches or other quaint hotels near Yellowstone.
After hiking up and down Lone Mountain, treat yourself to a pair of his-and-hers style cowboy boots at Carter’s Boots in Bozeman and enjoy a local beer at the nearest bar.
For adrenaline lovers: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
If you consider your partner to be a teammate, slip on a yellow-green jersey and hit the road for Rio de Janeiro. Beginners or pros, everyone can find a thrilling sporting activity, whether it’s stand-up paddling on the Barra da Tijuca canal near Praia dos Amores (a more than apt name) or hang-gliding from the Pedra Bonita mountain.
Copacabana beach is the ideal place to challenge your partner in a friendly game of futevolei (essentially a version of beach volleyball where you can use your hands and feet and use a soccer ball instead of a volleyball) or to keep fit with outdoor equipment: get into it so you don’t disfigure yourself in front of the muscular Cariocas! AtivoRio lets you play soccer games with the locals, or you can join a SightRunning group, a combination of sports and travel perfect for (hyper)active couples.
For couples with children: Santa Lucia
Even if you’re not a kid anymore and already have kids of your own, it’s nice to be a kid again every now and then. In Gros Islet, the whole family will find exactly what they want. The little ones are sure to love the beaches and activities offered by the kids’ clubs at the St. Lucia resorts; or, have fun all together zip lining through the trees at the adventure parks. Snorkeling in Rodney Bay is a fun and educational way to discover the island’s underwater creatures. For a day trip, perhaps while the kids are busy with their kids’ clubs, take a well-deserved romantic break by slathering each other in mud at Soufrière’s Sulphur Springs or smooching under Toraille’s waterfall.
For a gay-friendly vacation: Sitges, Spain
If you’re a couple that loves to party, Sitges is the place for you! Just a 40-minute drive from Barcelona, Sitges was once renowned for its artistic and non-conformist subcultures. Today, it is one of the most vibrant and welcoming destinations for LGBT travelers from around the world. In between pool parties, you can hang out at the gay-friendly bars on Calle Dos de Mayo, or relax on the magnificent nudist beach. Each season has its own event: Carnival in February, Gay Pride in June, Festa Mayor in August and a film festival in October. If thumping music and all-out partying aren’t your thing, plan your vacation in the off-season. The sun always shines on Sitges, so visit in late fall or winter to enjoy half-empty beaches and endless walks along the promenade, without sacrificing your tan.
For great loves on a small budget: Brasov, Romania
Two one-way tickets to Brasov, please! Once you discover this romantic gem in Romania, you’ll never want to go home again. Like a fairy tale, the cobblestone streets lead you past rows of bars and colorful storefronts. Enjoy the simple pleasures of life without spending too much: a coffee costs 9 Romanian lei, less than 2 euros. If you are curious to leave the city and explore the surroundings, in 40 minutes by car you can reach Bran Castle, also known as “Dracula’s Castle”.
After an unmissable visit to the Black Church, blackened by the great fire of 1689, climb the hills by cable car or on foot along romantic tree-lined paths and enjoy the view from the top of Mount Tâmpa. Don’t forget to take a playful photo in front of the huge Hollywood-style “Brasov” sign on the mountainside.
For metropolitan soulmates: Seoul, South Korea
If you can’t resist the temptation to take a romantic selfie with your better half, Seoul could be your dream destination. On your first outing, you’ll definitely want to take a souvenir photo at the Namsan Seoul Tower: located at the top of the hill of the same name, it welcomes you with heart-shaped benches, designed for “lovebirds” who want to cuddle surrounded by a myriad of padlocks hanging from the Wall of Love.
Seoul’s romance is undeniable, especially if you visit Namiseom Island. 60 km from Seoul, perfectly aligned poplars and horse chestnuts provide a magical backdrop for romantic photos in any season. To end the day on a high note, make your own unique souvenir: at the DIY Ring Café in the trendy Hongdae district, you can create your own “his & her” jewelry.
For honeymooners: Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
Once you’ve said your “I do’s”, it’s time to pack your bags and leave for a vacation of love in Puerto Plata, one of the most paradisiacal and less touristy seaside towns in the Dominican Republic. When you’re not “busy” in your hotel by the sea, stroll through the streets of the historic city or sunbathe at Playa Bergantín. Because English-speaking tourism is a nascent sector of the Dominican economy, local merchants are doing everything they can to please tourists, increasingly offering friendly English-language service. The musical culture, of African and Caribbean origins, will set the pace of your evenings with “merengue” that you will not be able to resist. A short break to sip a Mamajuana (a local rum-based cocktail with aphrodisiac properties) and you’ll be ready to get back on track… or to your hotel!
For those hungry for love: Istria, Croatia
Some say that to conquer a person, you have to grab them by the throat. In Croatia, Istria will seduce you with white truffle dishes and fresh fish…and that’s just the beginning. Croatian olive oil is a connoisseur’s specialty, used to beautifully enhance Mediterranean and continental-influenced dishes such as buzara (shrimp or mussel stew) or pljukanci (handmade pasta).
A swim in the beautiful blue sea, a walk through the greenery… you choose how to dispose of all the Fritule (Croatian fritters) you can’t resist! Stock up on local products at the market in Rovinj’s harbor, just below the hill on which St. Euphemia’s Church stands, with its 60-meter bell tower. For the ultimate in romance, take a bottle of delicious Istrian wine with you.
For romantic vacations without limits: French Polynesia
If you are a couple without children and with two salaries, it is likely that, when planning your vacations, you are more interested in spending unforgettable moments than in minding savings. In that case, rush to the island of Bora Bora in French Polynesia. The talcum white sand beaches are lined with numerous luxury hotels with bungalows and private views.
When it comes to couples’ vacations, anything goes in Bora Bora: you can picnic on private beaches, swim with colorful fish, sip Tahitian vanilla mojitos and gorge on ahi tuna (a local specialty made from yellowfin tuna). After you’ve been pampered and spoiled, a helicopter tour to fly over Mount Otemanu or a couple’s day of shopping at Tahiti’s Pape’ete Municipal Market are unforgettable excursions.
