Thinking about getting away with your beau? Then it’s time to decide your vacation vibe. Whether you’re the thrill-seeking, eco-conscious kind or simply two stressed-out souls searching for a place to chill and recharge, there’s a match-made vacation you’re set to love.
1. The eco-conscious couple
If sustainability, supporting conservation, and immersing yourself in nature sounds like your kind of trip, an eco-stay is bound for your bucket list. Head to the wild and wonderful rainforests of Costa Rica to watch the monkeys from your deck, explore the coral reefs via the jetty of your paradise pad in Panama, or make for the breathtaking and biodiverse national parks of Portugal for an inside view of nature at its most magical.

2. The thrill-seeking couple
If you’re more about the adventure and thrill than the Netflix and chill, get ready for an action-packed getaway to recharge your relationship. Canoe through the emerald-green canyons of Croatia, hike to the dramatic Swiss peaks surrounding the romantic fairy-tale village of Grindelwald, or brave mountain biking around Mount Pisgah, NC, for a daringly different twist on the romantic vacation.

3. The stressed-out couple
Let’s level. The daily grind can take its toll on together time. Take some time out to disconnect from the world and reconnect as a couple in a secluded spot surrounded by luxury and little else. Cut ties and run for the Majorcan mountains to soak away your stresses in an alfresco jacuzzi tub. Soothe your soul from the hammock of a super-stylish Dutch beach hideaway. Or sneak off to a secluded Fijian pod house for sanctuary in Savusavu Bay.

4. The double daters
Everything’s more fun with friends, are we right? And yes, that includes couples’ vacations. Fire up the group chat, upsize the house, and upgrade your getaway. If the jungle’s your jam, get up close and personal with Hawaiian waterfalls and wildlife as you watch at canopy-level from the comfort of your tub. For something a little more traditional, Provence, France, is one of the best vacation spots for couples, so get set to be swept off your feet by the rustic charm of this lavender-filled wonderland. Gather the group and try white-water rafting or canyoning to spice up your stay. If you’re looking for style in the city, head to the cute cobbled streets of Rome. Learn how to make gelato or give a pasta masterclass a go, then retreat to one of the many on-point apartments that so effortlessly mix modern art, antiquities, and pretty views into every hopeless romantic’s dream.

5. The too-cool-for-rules couple
Forget towels sculpted into swans and rose petals scattered on the bed. If you’re the kind of couple that just doesn’t do ordinary, check into a weird and wonderful hideaway that’s as unique as you. Float (or drive!) away from the world on an idyllic houseboat on a South Louisiana lake, watch the spectacular Northern Lights from the skylight of your Finnish igloo, or snuggle up in a teeny tiny super-luxe Californian cabin with simply nature, starry skies, and each other for company.
