4. Luminous Lagoon – Montego Bay, Jamaica

This is one excursion couples just can’t skip when in Jamaica.  Within this lagoon in Falmouth, bioluminescent microorganisms emit phosphorescent light when agitated, creating the perfect backlight to a warm Caribbean evening.  The lagoon is only 5-feet deep at its center, so you can easily wade through the illuminated waters.  End your enchanting evening at the restaurant and nightclub of Glistening Waters Marina.

5. Dr. Fish Ocean Spa – Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Romance and relaxation are two “r” words that go hand-in-hand, and this detoxifying excursion doesn’t skip a beat in either category.  Even the boat that transfers you to the location is termed a “sailing spa.”  With dazzling views of Punta Cana you are coached through bio-pilate stretching and breathing exercises, then pampered with full-body, seaside massages in private cubicles.  Together you can also enjoy resting on a floating mattress in the natural pool, experience the Garra Rufa exfoliation, or indulge in several other exclusive spa treatments.

In the waters of Caicos Banks in Turks and Caicos, the natural phenomenon of glow worms emitting bio-luminescent light is a spectacle that has to be seen by your own eyes.  No, literally, it has to be seen by naked eyes as photographs aren’t able to capture the majesty of this light show.  As one of the most romantic islands in the Caribbean, this spellbinding evening showcases the best of what Turks and Caicos has to offer for romance.
