Where to Go

No trip to Portugal is complete without exploring Lisbon, the country’s centrally-located capital city. The city is a lovely maze of winding alleyways which weave between colorful buildings, tiny wine bars and fresh seafood restaurants en route to eventual stunning hilltop views (so frequently referred to that they’re known locally as miradouros). Vintage trams rattle and chug through the city’s streets, giving way to trendy cocktail lounges, historic landmarks, outdoor markets, museums and plenty more.

Where to Eat

Hartwood – You’ll dine under the stars beneath swaying palm trees at this picturesque spot. The restaurant uses wood burning ovens and open grills to prepare fresh, local food (from grilled fish to pork belly). Meanwhile, the beach huts, whitewashed roofs, wooden tables, and candles all add to the romantic atmosphere.

Where to Drink

Gitano – The jungle merges with a club atmosphere at Gitano, one of Tulum’s hottest restaurants. Overall, it’s a terrific choice for capping off the night with mixed drinks and light snacks. Couples have a long list of terrific cocktails to choose from, however our favorite is the Stardust, made with mezcal, dark rum, pineapple, papaya and a homemade coconut cream.
