Top 6 Vacation Spots for Couples

Tired of seeing those Facebook albums full of perfectly staged exotic beach photos? Whenever I see a friend’s vacation photos on my timeline, on the outside I’m like,


But on the inside, I’m actually like this…


Sometimes I just want to be the first of my friends to snag that killer swim-out room or find a place with ideal beach cabanas. As travel agents, we book and search for perfect destinations to our favorite resorts all day long. So we’ve seen the best-of-the-best when it comes to where you should go for your next vacation. Especially when it comes to a vacation for two, just because a resort says “Adults Only” doesn’t mean it’s a perfect-math for your wants, needs, desires, and style. So no matter if you’re the adventuring type or the snooze-all-day-on-the-beach couple, here’s the top vacation spots for all types of couples.

Top Vacation Spots for Couples



Cabo is my favorite unique destination. It’s not your typical play-on-the-beach destination because well, the ocean is too dangerous. But it’s a hidden gem among Mexico travelers. The resorts in Cabo are built into the mountains, which means literally their are rooms in the resort whose walls are the walls of the mountain. It’s unreal and you can easily snag the best views as you sit with your glass of wine and significant other as you overlook the ocean. Super romantic destination for sure.

Sandos Finisterra is a great option in Cabo. Activities are offered day and night but it’s also a great choice if you’re more of the relaxing-by-the-pool with a drink in hand, kind of couple.

Secrets Puerto Los Cabos is the place. The resort goes all the way down to the beach and scales into the mountain. Their spa is in the caves of the mountains giving that perfect romantic aesthetic.


Riviera Maya

Riviera Maya is that destination where you walk onto the beach, breathe in, then breathe out knowing you came to the right place. The beaches are top notch, the people are extremely nice, and you can find some killer suites with awesome balconies. Perfect for any couple trying to get some time alone with entertainment still within reach.

I went to Secrets Akumal on my honeymoon and I must say, this place will make you feel like a celebrity. The cabanas on the beach and all around the resort are the perfect spot to cozy on up with your significant other and chill on the beach all day long. The resort is super romantic and tropical.



Cancun is where it’s at with an upbeat culture and city-like atmosphere. It’s kind of like if LA or New York was a resort on the beach. The food tastes top-notch and you get pampered like a king or queen. Traveling to Cancun is seamless and will get you to relaxation quicker than most.

Looking to save a little?

Dreams Sands comes in at a great price-point and is perfectly situated along a breathtaking white sand beach in the heart of Cancun. Just because Dreams is Family Friendly, doesn’t mean it isn’t just as romantic.

Look no further than Secrets the Vine if you’re looking for romantic, upscale luxury as a couple. Secrets the Vine is that cool party where you feel like V.I.P all the time. Known for its winery, it’s a great place to relax by the beach and pool all day, hit up the spa, and come alive at night with rooftop restaurants and a classy, upbeat atmosphere to get a drink and meet a few new faces along the way.



The slanguage of Jamaica is “everting irie” and I have to agree that everything is more than all right in Jamaica. This may be the old fashioned “cliche” honeymoon spot, but you won’t care if you’re a veteran couple looking for the most glorious oceans and landscapes you’ve ever seen. The service and the cultural experience is the hit of Jamaica. You will become best friends with your resort staff.

Okay, this new Zoetry resort in Montego Bay is what all our BeachMasters are talking about these days. Experience suites that are pretty much just a straight shot of the ocean. Zoetry Montego Bay is a boutique resort, with 49 suites just steps away from your own private beach on the Caribbean Sea. Take a holistic approach to resort life and enjoy organic, fresh and locally grown ingredients in each meal and then “clear the mind” with some meditation, spa treatments, and yoga.


Punta Cana

Looking for romantic vibes with a little party vibes in between? Punta Cana is one of the best range of resorts from the couple that just wants to escape and get away, to the couple that’s ready to let loose and live it up in the Caribbean. If you are obsessed with the beach like we are, Punta Cana has some of the cleanest beaches in the world with plenty of room to join in on a volleyball game or relax under a palm tree with the Caribbean’s famous Coco Loco in hand.

Bavaro Princess gives you that gorgeous beach access the Caribbean has to offer while being a great place to send couples with a specific price-point in mind.

Morning 🌴🌊☀️

I drooled over Secrets Cap Cana when I stayed at this resort back in March. The entire time I was there, I just missed my husband because everywhere I turned felt like a perfect little paradise for a couple looking to relax and have fun. Get yourself a room with your own private balcony jacuzzi or try out these bungalows (pictured above) for your own private pool and little home just steps from the beach. The atmosphere by day and at night makes both secluded romance and upbeat entertainment easily within reach. There’s plenty of space to do whatever you want that day without feeling too overwhelming and the furnishings are beautiful and modern.
