Whether you’re looking for snow or sun, we found the perfect spot for your couples vacation.

If you’re in the market for a Valentine’s Day gift they won’t return, how about a romantic weekend getaway? You can head to the Southern US or the Caribbean for sunny, beach-friendly weather, the Northeast or West for prime ski and snowboarding season, or even European capitals during one of the most inexpensive times of year to travel there.

Don’t save your vacation just for anniversaries; we give you full permission to celebrate your love whenever you feel like it. Plus, after years of disrupted plans for reasons we, ahem, don’t need to get into, don’t you and your partner deserve some quality alone time somewhere that’s not your living room couch? 

The first step is deciding what kind of vacation you’re craving: Do you plan on hunkering down in the sheets all weekend? Are you ready to hit the pavement and explore a new city through its museums and restaurants? Or is your idea of a couples retreat just wiggling your toes in some warm, powder-soft sand? We’ve compiled some of our favorite locations around the world—from inexpensive locales to high-end resorts offering Valentine’s Day specials—all of which are ideal for a quick couples vacation. So pack your best swimsuit (or puffer jacket) and read on to find out which trip is for you…and yours.

The Dominican Republic may be more well known for spring breaks than romantic weekend getaways, but that could be because you’ve never visited the eastern tip of the island, a paradise known as Cap Cana. Here you’ll find one of the Caribbean’s best marinas for fishing, miles of white-sand beaches for fun in the sun, and some of the country’s most glamorous and romantic hotels. Our pick in the area is Eden Roc Cap Cana, DR’s only Relais & Châteaux property that boasts a whopping 30,000 acres for true seclusion. Apart from elegant beachfront villa accommodations, there is also a brand-new spa and wellness program that includes many in-room services like couples massages and custom bath soaks. And those looking for the most unique romantic dinner should make sure to book a private meal at the boutique property’s on-site cenote, a limestone cave complete with a waterfall fountain.
