Romantic Vacation Tips & Essential Lover’s Kits

Planning an amorous escape can get expensive, but with the right planning you can afford two tickets to paradise. It just comes down to where you go and when… and of course, what you bring.

“A resort area in off-season can be romantic, whereas during in-season it’s just a nightmare,” says Jason Clampet, senior online editor at, a website on travel destinations and trip ideas.

Here’s a guide to seven romantic getaways that offer heart-stopping travel deals.

Cost estimates on airfare are from the Travelocity website as of early January. Flights originate in Atlanta, except for travel to the Gulf Coast and Hawaii, where the originating locations are St. Louis and the West Coast, respectively.

Cancun, Mexico

textSpecial rates:  Starting at $479 per person for four nights and airfare.
Best times to go:  Fall and winter months, excluding Christmas.

Compared to other romantic getaways outside the U.S., Cancun is one of the few where travelers can find inexpensive airfares as well as low-cost accommodations.

“You can get there from many major U.S. cities on a nonstop flight at a very reasonable price,” says Carl Howard, a consultant with All Points Travel in Atlanta.

A nonstop flight from Atlanta to Cancun runs from $300 to $350 on average, outside of spring break and Christmas. Travelers have access to a wide range of hotel rooms and resorts, plus attractions such as the Mayan ruins. Many all-inclusive luxury resorts offer rates of $100 per day, says Kara Lucchesi, a senior travel expert out of Davis, Calif., for STA Travel based in Dallas.

What we recommend using while there

Gel’n Bath is perfect for soaking in the tub together. If you spend any time in the sun, it is great for soothing sun burns. Gel’n Bath is not your typical bath; it’s a relaxing spa bath that will massage your body and delight your senses. When sharing an intimate evening with a loved one, Gel’n Bath will provide you with a calming spa experience in the comfort of your tub. Let Gel’n Bath’s gentle touch and fragrant scents restore the balance between your body, mind and spirit.

  • Deep cleansing and exfoliation: The natural heat of the bath opens up your skin’s pores and allows Gel n’ Bath’s unique gel beads to remove dead skin cells, oil, sweat and other impurities and is gentle enough for sensitive skin.
  • Rehydrates: Containing up to 10 times its own weight in water, each gel bead gently caresses your skin and releases water into open pores, rehydrating your skin and leaving it feeling silky smooth.
  • Detoxifies and softens: In stage two, gel beads revert back to water where helpful bath salts will naturally draw toxins from the body for softer and younger looking skin.
  • Heat therapy:  Relieve sore and stiff muscles, reduce joint stiffness and increase blood flow. Gel beads have the ability to retain heat three times longer than water alone.
  • Relieves stress: It’s a deep, penetrating full-body massage that caresses your body and calms your mind.

Florida Gulf Coast, USA

Best times to go:  During the school year, excluding holidays.

With its sugar-white sands, crystal-clear waters and pastel stucco beach houses, the Florida Gulf Coast has long been considered a great romantic getaway. But last summer, fears surrounding the Gulf oil spill sent Florida tourists packing and hotel rates plummeting.

Now the industry is trying to get the word out that the beaches are clean and safe. And hotels, restaurants and other attractions are trying to lure back tourists with discounted rates from Pensacola to St. Petersburg, Clampet says.

Whether you’re looking for a big, traditional resort hotel or smaller mom-and-pop places, they’re all looking for visitors,” he says.

With its breathtaking beaches, lush scenery and picturesque waterfalls, Hawaii has long set the standard for honeymooners. But it’s also a prime destination for frugal lovebirds on a romantic getaway.

Well-appointed hotels fall into the $100-per-night range, and round-trip flights from the West Coast start at about $300, depending on the season, Lucchesi says. “The great thing about Hawaii is it can be made affordable for anyone’s budget,” she says. Contacting a travel agent to assemble a travel package including airfare, transportation and hotel can trim costs.

“A travel agent has all the latest information on what there is to do in these places, especially after you narrow down what you want,” says Jim Andreas, travel consultant and owner of

Best times to go:  Weekdays, especially in June and July.

Whether your idea of a romantic getaway involves sparkling wine and chocolate-covered strawberries or a wedding officiated by Elvis Presley, chances are you’ll find it in Vegas.  For cost-conscious couples, resorts are the way to go for romantic getaways, Andreas says.  Many resorts in Vegas offer all-inclusive packages, featuring amenities such as spa treatments, in-room food and wine services, and honeymoon suites.

“These people know how to party in every fashion, and romance is right up there on top. They can put together packages for people that a lot of other resorts don’t even consider,” Andreas says. And if the spirit moves you, marriage licenses are available from 8 a.m. to midnight.  With the airport adjacent to the Vegas strip, couples can save a few extra dollars on transportation.

Little Compton, Rhode Island

Little ComptonSpecial rates:  Hotels start at $60 per night. An affordable trip by car.
Best times to go:  Fall and winter, excluding holidays.

Pebbly beaches and harbor views make the rural town of Little Compton a popular destination for East Coast road-trippers during the summer. But when there’s a chill in the air, Little Compton can be a quiet respite for couples seeking a no-frills romantic getaway at a bed and breakfast, says Clampet.

“If you just want to get cozy, have a nice meal and sit in front of the fire, it’s a great place to do that,” he says.

By forgoing flashy attractions for luxury lodgings, couples can afford a night or two at Little Compton’s historic Stone House resort, a four-story Victorian manor with sleek modern suites and spa-like amenities. During the cooler months, rates drop by as much as 75 percent, with a $700 room with a fireplace going for about $220, Clampet says.

If you do get the urge for a more populated setting, the Rhode Island cities of Newport and Providence are each a 40-minute drive away.

Los Roques, Venezuela

Los RoquesSpecial rates:  Flights into Caracas start at $928 per person; hotels start at $50 a night per person.
Best times to go:  Midweek, excluding holidays.

Couples who have discovered the exotic, laid-back romantic getaway that are the Los Roques islands don’t want the secret to get out.

Los Roques isn’t your typical Caribbean resort destination. The mostly uninhabited area, about 100 miles north of Caracas, is part of Los Roques Archipelago National Park, created to protect the area’s coral reefs, mangroves and seagrass beds.

Lodgings consist of small, one-to two-story inns called “posadas” – fishermen’s huts that have been converted to host tourists. Accommodations typically include breakfast and dinner and range from $50 to $200 per night.

A typical day in Los Roques might consist of waking up in the morning, hopping on a small chartered boat and being transported to a secluded beach for six hours, Clampet says.

Slip into the Exotic

Bring this kit along to intensify your love making. The Shunga Oriental Body Slide Kit provides a body-to-body massage, which is a completely arousing and intensely erotic sensual experience. The gel, poured entirely onto the two naked bodies, lets lovers glide against one another in a slip-and-slide motion with ease and almost in complete weightlessness, which creates an intoxicating and aphrodisiac effect. The feeling of the skin itself becomes exciting and transforms sweet caresses into soft touches that bring you to the height of your imagination and your wildest desires… A one-of-a-kind fun adventure for sensual lovers! The mix makes 4 Liters (I US Gallon). Large Waterproof sheet included.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

PittsburghSpecial rates: Starting at $276 per person for three nights and airfare.
Best times to go:  During the school year, outside of holidays.

If you’re looking to woo your partner with an urban escape, Pittsburgh offers a lower-cost alternative to the Big Apple’s big-city opulence. The convergence of the Allegheny and Monongahela rivers in downtown Pittsburgh provides a scenic backdrop for a weekend romantic getaway.

Couples can spend an entire day exploring the Carnegie Museums of art, natural history and science, and The Andy Warhol Museum. And for a night out on the town, Pittsburgh offers an array of cosmopolitan restaurants and nightlife. The former steel hub has enjoyed a renaissance in the past decade, but it still flies under the radar.

“There’s lots to do, and it’s frequently overlooked,” Clampet says. “So if you’re looking for a bargain, it’s a good place.”
