What A Vacation Can Do For Your Relationship

Whether it’s to the white sandy beaches of St Lucia, the glistening mountains of Switzerland or to a romantic inn upstate, a jaunt away can be great for any relationship. If you are thinking that you are too busy to plan a trip and your relationship won’t suffer for it anyway, think again; here are some  reasons why you should make the time for that vacation you keep putting off:

...A vacation can provide you with new perspective

When you are on vacation, it is a great time to cut off all distractions and take the time to reevaluate what is important as a couple. You can discuss any issues, goals and plans or simply enjoy the alone time that a holiday brings. Use this time to communicate and be honest.

...You have the time to reconnect with your significant other

When you are away with your honey, this is a great time to bond and create new and precious memories.  Spend time doing things you don’t usually do together at home,  like talking at your meals instead of reading the newspaper, going for walks together or experiencing something new that you have never done before. This will help revitalize the relationship.

...You can do some relationship maintenance

When you are on vacation, this is the perfect time to do some relationship maintenance. Take the time to focus on things that you take for granted at home like being romantic, showing spontaneous appreciation and being affectionate.


Honeymooning in Cabo

In today’s day and age, when two people are getting married, the honeymoon is just as important as the wedding itself. It’s important for the couple to choose a place where they can find romance, excitement, beauty and relaxation all wrapped into one. A great choice is Cabo San Lucas. Cabo is an easy getaway, with impeccable weather, beautiful blue crystal blue waters, top notch resorts, wonderful culinary experiences and loads of fun. Don’t hesitate to reach out to the Cabo San Lucas Tourism Board, an extremely helpful association for suggestions in planning the best honeymoon for you. 

All of the resort destinations in Cabo are located along the corridor, right on the Pacific Ocean. When choosing where to stay on your honeymoon, you need to select a place that fits your budget and provides you with the features that will make your honeymoon memorable forever and ever. If you are able to splurge and if you are a couple who wants the best of the best, hands down, the choice is the Capella Pedregal.

This five star resort is located steps away from the town of Cabo San Lucas, but upon entering their dramatic dimly-lit private tunnel, you are immediately transported to romance and sophistication. The property is exquisite; each room has a fireplace, an ocean view and a plunge pool for those late nights when it is just the two of you. The room is tastefully decorated with no detail overlooked, from the high thread count premium Egyptian cotton signature beddings, to the luxurious bath products and the rainshower in the bathroom.

And, each room comes with a personal assistant who can see to your every romantic whim. While you are there, don’t miss the couples cooking class where one of their top notch chefs will teach you how to make Mexican ceviche masterpieces. For dining, consider a romantic dinner at their clifftop restaurant, El Farallon, where you sit under the stars while listening to the waves crash below, or an intimate dinner for two in their wine cellar tucked away from the other guests. And remember to check out The Auriga Spa, which is very picturesque in and of itself. 

The spa experience starts off with a foot scrub, followed by a hot and cold plunge pool. Then, ask for the massage for two and end your visit in their luxurious outdoor hot tub.
