Romantic Caribbean Getaways - escapadas románticas en el caribe - main

If you are looking for the most romantic Caribbean getaways, you are in the best place.

Whether it is because of the soft breeze, swaying palms, gorgeous sunsets, or resorts for couples, the best couples’ beach vacations are in the Caribbean Sea.

As my love says: “That’s a fact.”

Some of the best couples’ vacation destinations are on the shores of the Caribbean Sea. They are famous for stirring up romance, boosting honeymooners’ stories, and uniting partners. My husband and I can attest to that.

My name is Teresa. I write some of the articles you read on this blog. Nice to meet you. Let me tell you, my story.

I got married 20 years ago, and like you, on the internet, I have looked up “the best honeymoon destinations,” “places to go for an anniversary,” or “best couples’ vacation spots.” and the best answer was always The Caribbean Sea.

I have visited it so many times that I have lost count and always had fun, even if I am a scuba diver and my husband is not. It does not matter. The Caribbean offers many unforgettable places to stay, activities to enjoy, and wonders to see. Besides, it is close to home. We live in Florida.

As a result, I keep lifetime Caribbean memories, and we are already preparing for the next trip. So, Maybe I could help you with yours.

Romantic Caribbean Getaways for Divers

Like everyone in love, scuba divers are looking for some vacation spots for couples as well. Plans in which they can mix their two passions: Love and Scuba Diving. Neither can we forget the fact that, if there is a really romantic vacation for two, it´s a scuba diving trip. You know! It’s something that has to be done in pairs.

There is no doubt, that romantic Caribbean getaways are the answer for lovers. Moreover, there are hundreds of places to visit. But… how to know which ones are the best for scuba divers in love? Let’s consider some places and their features.

  • Cozumel, The Most Romantic Caribbean Island for Divers

Cozumel is not far away from the International Airport of Cancun in the Mayan Riviera and also has its own airport. This island is a dream come true for any scuba diver. There are vast coral formations, bright sponges, and deep walls that descend into the abyss. In other words, a rich environment for many species, including some that are not found anywhere else on earth, like the Cozumel Splendid Toadfish.

For couples who want to experience the thrill of diving the most, Cozumel is the place for couples to travel. However, this island also has the other option to kick back and escape contemplating romantic sunsets or sunrises together with that special someone. Definitely, Cozumel makes a solid choice.


  • The Cayman Islands for a Scuba Divers’ Romantic Caribbean Getaway

The Cayman Islands is a three-island archipelago with more than 300 dive sites. A dream come true for divers but that doesn’t mean the islands don’t appeal to couples too.

The Cayman Islands offer to explore the first two decks of the wreck USS Kittiwake, a reef wall accessible to beginners but that plummets down beyond 304 meters (1000 feet), a mushroom-shaped reef full of life, exciting swim-throughs, overhangs, and much more.

Best Caribbean Honeymoon Destinations for Divers and Non-Divers


  • The Mayan Rivera for A Romantic Caribbean Couple Vacations

Other best couples’ vacation destinations are in Mexico too. Exactly, we are talking about the Riviera Maya. This destination for couples offers unparalleled beautiful beaches. In addition, in its surroundings, the vacation makers in love can find breathtaking archaeological sites.

We are talking about TulumCoba, and the Chichen Itza pyramid; This last place is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Couples with a more bosom and relaxed sense of romance will be able to live the experience to the maximum. Think of tasty Mexican candlelit dining with ocean views and Mariachis singing as a soundtrack.

Of course, the Yucatan Peninsula is one of the most popular areas of the Caribbean for scuba divers. Cancun, in the north, is famous for its wide and typical tourist offer. However, if you also want to scuba dive, you will find two fantastic places in the south. We are talking about Playa Paraiso and Playa del Carmen.

These top couples’ getaways are quieter and more interesting for scuba divers. Both are known for their coral reefs, abundant biodiversity, and marine life. Moreover, if you choose these places as the destination of your Caribbean couple vacations from November to February, you will have the possibility of enjoying bull shark scuba diving.

Additionally, from May to September, the option will be snorkeling with whale sharks. Could something be better for the most romantic vacation for two?

Is this not enough? Keep reading. There are still more romantic Caribbean getaway possibilities in the Mayan Riviera.

The stunning cenotes are nearby Puerto Aventuras. They are underground caverns of exceptionally transparent freshwaters, where diving and snorkeling is a must. Another awesome thing about the cenotes is that shafts of sunlight stream through their many openings and light the water, making an unforgettable visual spectacle.

If we mix that with the striking stalactites, dazzling stalagmites, and dramatic domes, we are in one of the most romantic vacation spots you could ever imagine.


  • Considering Belize for The Best Romantic Vacations

Natural beauty and comparable beaches are some of Belize’s appealing best tropical vacations for couples.

A Couple’s Caribbean vacation in Belize is for those who want a mix of adventure activities and beach lounging: lush rainforests, gorgeous beaches, good snorkeling and diving, adventure activities, and Mayan architecture.

Although Belize is one of the most romantic honeymoon destinations in the Caribbean, it is not as famous as others. So, the tourist exploitation is less. It has some drawbacks if you want to stay in a mega-resort because it is not the type of accommodation that is abundant in Belize, but that could be the most charming part for other partners.

If you are interested in visiting Mayan ruins, the Cayo district and the Lamanai Archaeological Reserve are your places.

The reefs of Belize are ideal for snorkeling, while if you are a scuba diver, you may be interested in visiting the Blue Hole, the giant sink of the world.

Nature-centric couples will want to make routes for Basin Wildlife Sanctuary & Jaguar Preserve, where they will be able to observe ocelots, monkeys, tapirs, toucans, macaws, and, of course, jaguars.
