The birthplace of first-class coffee, Colombia is the perfect locale to perk things up with your sweetheart. Be bold this week and get romance brewing with this week's Escape: a lavish, three-night stay at Cartagena de Indias' Las Américas Beach Resort ($729) from Manataraya Travel, which includes round-trip transportation to and from local airports.

One taste of Las Américas's accommodations will have you buzzing with a tropical flavor through a mix of white and caramel décor, wicker accents, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors. Soak in views of the cerulean sea or lush, emerald gardens on your private balcony before you sink into plush beds or swing on outdoor hammocks rocked by the cool breeze. A complimentary bottle of wine, LCD TVs, wireless Internet, and Las Américas's five-star service are also on tap to cater to your every need.

Indulge in each day's most important ingredient when you start your mornings off with included breakfast for two. Then, really stir up the romance while you stroll hand-in-hand on a guided walking tour of old Cartagena. Afterward, rest in each others arms as a carriage ride whisks your around the city. Back at the hotel, learn to salsa dance, sip cocktails by the pool, or pick from a full menu of other tempting activities.

Cartagena is one town that gets passions percolating. This walled, UNESCO World Heritage Site's clay tiled roofs, majestic bell towers, and cobblestone streets exude a romantic Old World aura.

Explore the battlements of Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, or shop for local handicrafts at Las Bóvedas. Then, head to Callo de Arsenal's bars, restaurants, and discotheques, for an upbeat vibe; or, retreat to Playa Blanca's pearl-white beaches and turquoise waves.

No matter what your taste, this Escape holds the recipe for one invigorating getaway.

  • "From the moment of your arrival at this unrivaled five-star hotel, you will be captivated by its tropical architecture, delicate details, and unique Caribbean environment."
