A 15-minute hop from San Juan, Puerto Rico's Luis Munoz Marin International Airport, the grand Hotel el Convento makes an ideal hub for a weekend getaway in the Old City. Each of its 58 romantic rooms is a charmer.

With its pastel cottages bordered by fences draped in cascades of flowers, Bermuda simply oozes charm. And its quiet pink-sand coves make it perfect for romance.

Less than an hour's flight from Miami to George Town makes getting to Grand Cayman a cinch. After you check out your plantation-style cottage at Cotton Tree and take a dip in the freshwater pool, get a treatment at the tricked-out spa cabana just steps from the waves.
The like-new Frenchman's Reef Marriott makes a fantastic home base for a getaway sprint: From its cliff-top perch, you're 10 minutes from Charlotte Amalie and a short walk from the beach at the adjacent Morning Star Beach Club.
