The pressure to pick the perfect honeymoon destination can be enough to make you book a far-flung locale that requires three layovers and way too much bad plane food. Avoid a nightmare travel day by choosing Puerto Rico, right in our Caribbean backyard. With a quick plane ride, you get city and beach, culture and sun, historic and modern, simplicity (no passports required!) and excitement, all on one spicy island. Puerto Rico is a rich port indeed, offering pretty beaches plus a tropical rain forest and all the amenities of a busy city. An even lovelier notion: The island’s convenience means that booking a weekend anniversary trip in the future is as easy as saying, “I’m glad we said ‘I do.’”

When hoteliers discovered a mostly deserted stretch of the Caribbean a stone’s throw from the Bahamian capital of Nassau, it was known as Hog Island. Step one in its transformation into an enduring wedding and honeymoon destination: renaming this square mile of white sand and turquoise surf Paradise Island.

Step two: inviting James Bond. The 1965 hit Thunderball was filmed on the newly christened island and showed off its spectacular scenery; the storied One&Only Ocean Club was the setting for scenes in 2006’s Casino Royale. (And as Bahamians will tell you with some pride, the James Bond—Sir Sean Connery—has a home on the island.)

Step three: building Atlantis, the island’s iconic pink resort, with five hotels, dozens of restaurants and 12 pools. The ever-expanding resort is celebrating its 20th season.
