Dear El Sol Travel,
My husband and I would like plan a romantic getaway this summer. With our hectic schedules, we need to take some time for us. Do you have any suggestions of some great places to visit?

Dear Shannon and Jax,
Summer is the season to take a step back from the bustle of everyday life and enjoy the sunshine. Whether you want to travel near or far, the beach is calling your name for some sunbathing and splashing in the surf with your loved one.
Few summer trips are as romantic as a getaway to Oahu. Choose a vacation rental right on the beach and all of Hawaii’s pleasures will be right on your fingertips. Escape the chaos of everyday life for days spent enjoying water sports, scenic sunsets, and bubble baths.
The California coastline is full of destinations that offer a romantic trip, but none are quite like Malibu. This oceanfront destination is one of the best summer vacations for couples for several reasons, including secluded coves with perfect beaches and views of dolphins swimming by the deck of your vacation rental.
Beaches aren’t the only place that can set the mood for a couple’s getaway. Many travelers declare the most romantic city on earth to be Paris. Some say the city is at its best in the summer, the parks are full of blooming flowers. It’s also ideal weather for dining at outdoor brasseries and cafes.
Bar Harbor, Maine
Some couples prefer a quiet place where they can relax over a bustling city. This is exactly what you’ll find in Bar Harbor, Maine. During the summer months, beaches are beautiful and warm for laid back days. Top off your day with an evening of dining on Maine lobsters while watching the sunset.
Couples that aren’t afraid of a little heat should plan a getaway to the Caribbean. The island of Bermuda offers a range of relaxing activities, from snorkeling to kayaking to cave tours.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Are you looking for a getaway that combines beaches and nightlife? If so, one of the best summer vacations for couples is a trip to Cabo San Lucas. This spot on the Pacific is known for its unspoiled beaches, golf courses, delicious cuisine, and endless nightlife.
Few cultures are as romantic as what you will find in Spain. Sultry summer nights are the ideal time to explore the streets of Barcelona. Watch street performers in between ducking into tapas bar after tapas bar. Nibble and sip your way through the city.
