A Postcard-Perfect Proposal in the Caribbean
When you know you've found your partner for life, you want everything to go just right. From choosing a ring, to finding the perfect moment to pop the question, there are so many details to consider. That's why destination proposals are gaining popularity among newly engaged couples.
Exploring a new place or revisiting an old favorite is a fun and romantic way to start the next chapter of your life together. From botanical gardens to historic landmarks, and of course, the beaches – the Caribbean Islands are full of inspiration. If you're looking for a picturesque spot to turn your vacation into a celebration, here are a few ideas.
Arikok National Park – Santa Cruz, Aruba
Imagine saying "Yes!" on a white sandy beach or a cactus-covered hilltop overlooking a panoramic view of Aruba. Limestone, lava, and quartz formations create awe-inspiring scenery in this geological masterpiece. Arikok National Park is rich with natural wonders, diverse landscapes, and unique flora and fauna.
Queen Emma Bridge – Willemstad, Curaçao
The floating Queen Emma Bridge is one of Willemstad's most recognizable images – and for good reason. Built in 1888, the "Swinging Old Lady of Curaçao" connects the Punda and Otrobanda quarters of the capital city. Colorful Dutch-style buildings and the Saint Anna Bay paint a gorgeous scene for a romantic evening stroll.
The Careenage – Bridgetown, Barbados
Mingle among visitors and Bajan locals at waterfront cafés as you watch the boats and yachts dock in the Careenage. The boardwalk is perfect for a quiet Sunday stroll, with views of the harbor and Bridgetown's colorful buildings.
Queen's Park Savannah – Port of Spain, Trinidad
Once home to a sugar plantation, Queen's Park Savannah is Trinidad's central park. Go for a walk, admire the Victorian houses known as the "Magnificent Seven," sip coconut water and visit the Royal Botanical Gardens just north of the Savannah.
Castillo San Felipe del Morro – San Juan, Puerto Rico
Old San Juan is full of character – much of which can be seen from Castillo San Felipe del Morro. The castle was built more than 400 years ago to guard the harbor and defend the port from invaders. Now, it's one of Puerto Rico's leading attractions – and a perfect place to watch a San Juan sunset.
Versailles Gardens/The Cloisters – Nassau, Bahamas
Visit a literal piece of Europe on Paradise Island. Once part of a 14th-century Augustinian monastery, the cloisters were purchased, dismantled, and imported by millionaire newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst in 1925. Hearst's estate later sold the cloisters to Huntington Hartford, who reassembled them as the centerpiece of his private estate. Stone pathways lead through lush multi-tiered landscaping overlooking Nassau Harbor.
