When it comes to popping the question with style, the setting should be memorable, which is why, just as with weddings, destination proposals are becoming increasingly trendy for couples of all ages. What could be more romantic than getting engaged in an exciting new place or, better yet, saying “yes” in a destination that has special meaning to both of you?
For the element of surprise: Ecopark Kantun-Chi, Riviera Maya, Mexico
Climb down a ladder into a secluded cenote (a freshwater sinkhole) and propose amid clear waters and tropical gardens.
For the classic photo op: Bellagio Fountains, Las Vegas
Pop the question in front of the Strip’s iconic water and music show, which happens every 15 minutes between 8 p.m. and midnight.
For a cool story: Hôtel de Glace, Quebec City
This seasonal hotel, made entirely of ice and snow, offers a proposal package that includes a suite with fireplace for the proposal, a bottle of ice cider and a glace jewelry box.
For dramatic scenery: Cliffs of Moher, Ireland
Let these rugged, epic cliffs (and the Atlantic Ocean beyond) serve as a spectacular natural backdrop to your special moment—just be sure to check the weather before you go.
