How to be a Romantic Traveler I am a hopeless romantic. After all, I have the whole, wild beautiful world as my stage to share my love with Anne. Together through our own 30-year traveling romance we've danced around the world sharing our adventures as newlyweds on honeymoon in Costa Rica, leading family adventures raising our son, and now as empty-nesters and grandparents.

Here are my top 9 romantic travel tips (with a special bonus at the end) for romancing on your next adventure. 1. Be out in nature together. On our honeymoon in Costa Rica I took Anne to a special place where I could kiss her under a waterfall cascading out of the rainforest onto a pristine tropical beach....

Charming Hosts and One-of-a-kind Places This three-time alumni couple just came back from a custom Best of Patagonia trip with an enchanting extension at Iguazu Falls.

Both of the Singular Santiago and Singular Patagonia hotels were very nice and the ground arrangements worked very well. The Santiago guide was very good and even helped us at the airport to get checked in. We have been very fortunate to have wonderful weather and no rain for over three weeks! The Singular Patagonia...

Read on to hear their thoughts on El Calafate and Ushuaia in Patagonia as well as Buenos Aires, Uruguay and Easter Island.   “Friends used you in the past and when we had some thoughts about this potential trip and where to go and you nicely strung our destinations of interest together with excursions and accommodations. Easter Island was unique and all the Argentina venues were excellent and different. We had 4 main guides --Pilar in El Calafate, Jessica in Ushuaia, Ana in Buenos Aires and Lauda in Colonia, Uruguay. All were excellent, professional and well informed. Every place was so different and provided excellent opportunities to...
