Looking for the perfect romantic travel getaway to forget reality and enjoy some quality time with the one you love? Picking that ideal place can be a bit of a conundrum with so many destinations to choose from. For many of us, vacation time comes just once a year and consequently we wind up spending more time with our coworkers than the people we’ve actually decided to spend our lives with. This is why it’s crucial to make the right choice on where to head lest we find ourselves stuck in some humid cottage country for two weeks getting eaten alive by mosquitoes and sweating so much from the heat that the notion of cuddling is by far the worst idea known to mankind (oh yes it happens). To help you avoid this unpleasant scenario We searched the globe for the most couple-friendly spots to enjoy your uninterrupted time together.
