Top 10 Resorts for Romance

With the finale of The Bachelorette Canada airing this week we can’t wait to see who Jasmine’s final pick is. While she was getting swept away in the romance at Royalton Hicacos and exploring Cuba on two very different (yet equally spectacular!) fantasy dates, we couldn’t help but get a bit of romance-travel-envy ourselves.
