Taking an adult-only vacation is an undisguised blessing. For parents, a kid-free holiday allows the two of you to be together, with time to be sweethearts again and get reacquainted with one another. A tropical climate provides many opportunities for a splendid adult getaway.

From the famed diving regions of Cancun and Cozumel, to laid-back Jamaica, to kick-up-your-heels Punta Cana, there are many destinations to choose from when you plan the adult vacation you've dreamt about. Beach bumming, horseback riding, swimming, snorkeling, and bicycling are among the many available activities for the adult traveler in the Caribbean.
