Whether you’re looking to relax on the beach with a laidback itinerary, or embark on an unforgettable city adventure, here are five romantic destinations to which you can escape with a little help from Aeroplan.
The City of Lights is full of charm with endless things to see and do. Art lovers can spend hours wandering the city’s museums, whether it’s to see the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, the Impressionists at Musée d'Orsay, modern art at Centre Pompidou or sculptures at Musée Rodin. Or, you can escape to Versailles for a day and see the palace of Louis XIV in all its opulent glory. Paris is also the perfect city for people-watching from café terraces and for strolling through the cobblestone streets, whether your walk takes you to Montmartre or along the River Seine with a guaranteed view of the iconic Eiffel Tower.
There’s a reason why St. Lucia holds the top spot for being one of the world’s leading honeymoon destinations. The romantic island on the Caribbean boasts infinite sandy beaches, sparkling blue waters and sunny blue skies. St. Lucia is also the ideal escape for adventurous souls, whether you want to zip-line through the rain forest and hike up Saint Lucia’s famous landmarks, Gros Piton and Petit Piton. Afterwards, wind down at the spa with a relaxing couples massage or watch the sunset with a romantic candlelit dinner for two on the beach.
Whether your island destination is Honolulu, Mauai, Kona or Lihue, Hawaii is the perfect tropical paradise, thanks to its lush greenery, beautiful beaches and breathtaking waterfalls. It’s the picture-perfect backdrop, whether you’re looking to lounge poolside or get in on all the action with activities like snorkeling, surfing and paddleboarding. For nature lovers, there’s plenty to explore on the islands from hiking trails to hidden waterfalls. Do it all while feasting on mouth-watering food, whether it’s a steamed manapua or a traditional luau.
Go on an unforgettable adventure in Spain’s second largest city. Take in incredible architectural wonders like the Sagrada Família and Park Güell designed by renowned architect Antoni Gaudí, and roam the streets of La Rambla, Barcelona’s most famous pedestrian boulevard lined with shops and cafés. Or, take a break from city life by hitting the beach, located just minutes away. Barcelona is also a foodie haven where you can nibble on delicious tapas like bombas and pimientos de padron in an array of bars and restaurants, or enjoy a multi-course Michelin-starred meal at hotspots like ABaC.
Cancun, Cabo and Puerto Vallarta might be the go-to destinations for a romantic honeymoon, but Mexico’s capital city has steadily gained the spotlight over the last few years for its incredible food, memorable art and energetic nightlife. The colourful city will let you check off everything on your itinerary. Explore neighbourhoods like Roma and Condesa, get lost inside Museo Soumaya and Museo Frida Kahlo, and embark on a culinary journey by eating and drinking your way through the city. Or, go back in time by visiting the Teotihuacán pyramids, a UNESCO World Heritage Site located just outside downtown. If you’re looking for an urban getaway, a trip to Mexico City will be a honeymoon to remember.
