I've written recently about local places you can go to celebrate Valentine's Day, but I had a couple of readers who were looking for something tropical.
Here are a few suggestions:
La Concha Resort, San Juan, Puerto Rico
For Valentine's Day, the AAA Four-Diamond property is spicing things up with the "Discover Romance" package, which includes oceanview accommodations, a bottle of champagne, Godiva chocolates, breakfast for two and a late checkout. Starting from $289 a night. www.laconcharesort.com
The Ritz-Carlton Golf & Spa Resort, Rose Hall, Jamaica
"Special Occasion Package." Couples enjoy a bottle of champagne upon arrival, chef's choice welcome amenity and breakfast for two in the Horizons restaurant. The package must be booked by March 2012, for travel until that period. Rates start at $259 per night, not inclusive of taxes and gratuities. For more information, visit here.
