POPPING THE BIG QUESTION
Check Out these Amazing Destinations to Propose
There’s a lot of pressure on someone proposing to the love of his or her life. You have to buy the ring, keep it a secret, ask for permission from family members and then rehearse the exact words you plan to say. On top of everything else, you have to find the ideal locale to pop the big question—a spot that will live up to expectations and make everyone go “Ahhhh” every time you tell “the proposal story.” To take the pressure off finding the ideal location to propose, here are four romantic destinations that just scream, “Yes!”
Cancun was built for romance. All-inclusive resorts, white-sand beaches, turquoise waters, swaying palms, world-famous party scene—your partner will willingly travel there just for the fun of it. That’s what will make the actual proposal all the more surprising—they’ll never see it coming. For ultimate romance, we suggest driving down to the gorgeous, ocean-fronting ruins at Tulum and proposing on the steps of El Castillo. For something closer to Cancun, take a boat over to Isla Mujeres, where it’s easy to find a secluded strip of beach for you to bend the knee.
Paradise has been perfected on the islands of aloha. This is the ideal location to soak up the sun on colorful beaches, hike across dramatic landscapes, and ask your soulmate to marry you. One great way to complete that last one is during a couples’ massage on a black-sand beach, which can be performed at night surrounded by candles and ocean waves. For those looking to blow up Instagram with your proposal pics, pop the question during a flightseeing plane ride over the dramatic Kauai, or on an actual volcano at Hawaii’s Volcano National Park.
Every vineyard in Napa is a marriage proposer’s dream. Sweeping hills, rustic lodges, rows and rows of vines lining the landscape…all capped off with the some of the world’s most celebrated wines to toast your upcoming union. So for Napa, it’s not so much where you should propose but how. For the utmost in romantic splendor, we recommend asking her or him during a hot-air balloon ride. Just imagine—the two of you (and the balloon operator, of course), high above the undulating hills, 360-degrees of inspiring views, freshly-popped champagne fizzing in your flutes. The only thing missing is a sparkling ring and a bended knee.
Jamaica is one exciting island made for adventures of all shapes and sizes. Launch yourself from 40-foot cliffs into the warm Caribbean Sea, learn the secrets of distilling rum, coast on a bike all the way down the Blue Mountains, explore limestone cave labyrinths, listen to authentic reggae…and get engaged while you’re at it. While the beaches are top-notch, we suggest proposing on a river—the Martha Brae River to be exact. Alone on a 30-foot bamboo boat, surrounded by the tropical forest, the musical song of island birds drifting on the air, it all combines to make one
