Antigua: For Lovers of Beaches

If it’s a beach vacation you’re longing for, then you will fall in love with Antigua’s 365 white sand beaches and aquamarine waters. The island’s coral reefs are ideal for couples looking to scuba dive and explore the world below the waves, but for those looking to stay above water, a romantic sunset sail will be the perfect end to an incredible day.

Antigua’s stunning landscape is also home to a range of accommodations for every level of luxury. The Royalton Antigua Resort and Spa’s overwater bungalows are located on the scenic shores of Deep Bay and feature a swim-out infinity pool, over-water hammock, and glass floors to see the aquatic life below.

Or, venture to picturesque Dickenson Bay, and enjoy the couples-only Sandals Grande Antigua Resort and Spa, which has been named the most romantic resort in the world…and might be exactly what you’re looking for.

Costa Rica: For Lovers of Adventure

Costa Rica’s sweeping landscapes accent the country’s commitment to the environment and its natural beauty. This small Central American country is dedicated to preserving its rich diversity of plants and animals through sustainability initiatives and green energy. Embrace Costa Rica’s philosophy, Pura Vida, which encourages living with no worries and a laid-back attitude that exudes warmth and friendliness to all.

Escaping to Costa Rica allows you to reconnect with nature, whether that’s taking a guided hike through the jungles, listening to the waves crash on the beach, or visiting a sloth sanctuary. If you’d like a little bit of adventure sprinkled into your relaxing vacation, the ocean shores of Guanacaste or the volcano views at Arenal might be for you.

Barcelona: For Lovers of Culture

Culturally curious travelers will find Barcelona’s metropolitan vibes and mild Mediterranean climate the perfect spot to escape to this spring. Even in January, Barcelona’s location on Spain’s southeastern coast maintains temperatures in the 50s and 60s! Those with a creative flair will be mesmerized by the whimsical architecture of Antoni Gaudí and his masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia. From the Park Güell to the Picasso Museum, Barcelona has plenty of attractions to explore during the day, and the night scene invites travelers to embrace the city’s sophisticated seaside style.

After a siesta, the night scene invites you to embrace the city’s sophisticated seaside by sharing tapas (small plates), sipping red wine, and tapping your feet to local music.

Planning Your Spring Getaway

  • Remember that summer travel can be costly, and for many of us, summer is so busy with other commitments that spring can be a better time to take a vacation.
  • While rates around peak spring break times may be high, holiday and summer travel are almost always even higher. Having some flexibility to travel from February through May (depending on when Easter falls on the calendar) can help you take advantage of lower costs.
  • Spring break travel is busy and is continually growing in popularity. Booking sooner ensures you will have the flights, room category, and dates that you are looking for.
