May is Date Your Mate month, an annual excuse to reconnect with your partner without the pressures of family obligations and work responsibilities. Perhaps you didn’t realize there is another entire month devoted to nurturing your romantic relationship?!
Let’s be honest: A night out at your favorite steak house is one way to reconnect but the truth is there’s something to be said for eating that steak in another city where you don’t have to wake up to an early morning alarm and there’s no babysitter waiting to be driven home. “Date your mate” month could be the perfect excuse for running away on a romantic vacation together. Get away from the buzz of everyday life, figure out some longer term childcare options and take off with the one you love the most.
Here are three travel deals that can help make this dream come true:
The tropical air and outdoor adventure in Costa Rica makes it a must for any couple’s bucket list. Now you can book a stay at the Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation Resort, located in the Central Highlands of San Jose, and grab the $320 a night room rate at par! It is Green Season in Costa Rica, a great time for budget-conscious travelers to find adventure and sunny skies, often with rainy and refreshing afternoons.
The Finca Rosa Blanca is surrounded by volcanoes and the indigenous plant life of Central America. Experience a full-service spa, restaurant and bar with magnificent views and a lot of adventure trips like guided trips to a volcano, bird-watching, nature walks, horseback tours and swimming.
You will find a couple’s paradise at the adults-only Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun. This resort promises relaxing afternoons on a private beach, or by one of three adults-only pools, champagne toasts, chocolate parties and exclusive dinners on the beach. You also have the opportunity to use the amenities, including restaurants, watersports and fitness classes, of the adjoining Royalton Riviera Cancun. Try your luck at the onsite casino.
Prices start at $173 per person, per night.
West Inn & Suites has created a special package just for Date Your Mate month! Valid May 1-26, you can grab a special rate of under $200 a night. This package will let you and your mate get in touch with your inner kid, and relive your youth: pillow fights, nerf gun showdown, classic board games and an 80s movie throwback with popcorn and Milk Duds. You also receive a hot breakfast buffet, cookies and milk at night and a pop-up beach party at a local Carlsbad beach.
You deserve a romantic trip away with your partner to celebrate Date Your Mate month! If you could go anywhere in the world with your partner, alone, where would you go?
