Imagine embarking on a romantic escape to be wined and dined, soak up the sun on one of the Caribbean’s most pristine beaches, take a daring UTV tour along a brilliant coastline, or enjoy a thrilling watersport like snorkeling. No matter the craving, Aruba has exactly what is desired! 

Located in the southern portion of the Caribbean Sea, 18 miles north of the coast of Venezuela, Aruba is one of the world’s most luxurious island destinations. Below the hurricane belt and home to more sunny days than any other island in the Caribbean, you’re nearly guaranteed perfect weather as a typical day is 82-degrees year-round.

With splendid accommodations such as the newly remodeled Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, guests will rarely need to go elsewhere. In the morning, workout in their fully-equipped gym followed by a phenomenal breakfast on the beach. Then, take a short 10-minute boat ride to the private Renaissance Island that is solely for its guests. This little hidden gem includes swaying palm trees, sparkling turquoise waters inhabited by pink flamingos and a full-service bar.

Water sport fans can explore various water activities ranging from surfing and diving to banana boat rides and relaxing sunset sails. Activities such as snorkeling can be booked with many vendors to sail on ships such as the Tranquilo to encounter an entire school of blue parrotfish while swimming along the coral reef.

Land tours are also available as passengers will appreciate spectacular views of scenic desert, rock formations and incredible coast side, while driving ATV’s and UTV’s, creating an experience that will last a lifetime. Vendors such as De Palm Tours offer an unforgettable 3 ½ hour private guided tour alongside the beautiful island. With such excursions, fun and excitement are guaranteed for couples to relish.

To top off the blissful vacation, couples can share an amazing massage experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba Spa where they will indulge in a tranquil haven of pampering and rejuvenation at one of the most luxurious spa resorts in the Caribbean.

If one is seeking to intensify their romance, seek no further. Immersed in passion and love, Aruba is the ideal paradise for any couple.
