Still trying to decide what romantic gesture you’ll make this Valentine’s Day? At Travel + Leisure, we think a surprise trip is much more memorable than a fleeting bouquet of flowers.
Even though the holiday is just two weeks away, it’s not too late to book a trip at a great price. We used KAYAK’s “Explore” tool—which shows you everywhere you can fly within a set price—to determine where couples can go this Valentine’s Day without spending more than $400 on round-trip airfare, per person.
For travel from Friday, February 10 to Wednesday, February 15, we found great fares from the U.S. to romantic destinations around the world.

From the West Coast
California-based travelers can take a $218 vacation to Mexico City, or take advantage of a $207 trip to Vancouver. An easy ferry ride can take you to the wild edge of Vancouver Island—all snowcapped peaks and rugged cliffs that overlook the Pacific. From San Francisco, lovebirds can reserve seats to Panama City ($379 round-trip) or take an outrageously cheap trip to Amsterdam for the same price with WOW Air.
From Washington, D.C.
And travelers from Chicago can book a round-trip flight to San Jose, Costa Rica for an intimate weekend in the Central American cloud forests and horseback riding across the remote beaches. There’s also a $276 Hacker Fare for flights to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Of course, these deals are just as sweet for single travelers more interested in escaping Valentine’s Day than celebrating the affair. Seattle, Amsterdam, and destinations across Canada are ideal for travelers flying solo.
