Pristine white sand beaches, swaying palm trees, and sparkling turquoise water. If this visual is how you’ve imagined proposing to the love of your life, then Curacao is the destination for you!
Asking for forever is a big step in anyone’s life, and it’s remarkable to be able to do it somewhere as magnificent as the Caribbean. Curacao is one of the Caribbean’s lesser-known island gems, tucked away in the southern portion near Aruba and Bonaire. Though we know you’re concerned about where to propose, we’re willing to bet you’re even more concerned with the how.
Creative Proposal Ideas
No sweat, we’ve got five creative, romantic, and sweet ways for you to propose in paradise.
An Underwater Proposal
If you’ve ever scuba dived, you may have had a guide that wrote the name of the fish on a waterproof sign. Well, consider taking your sweetheart snorkeling, or on a scuba diving excursion and surprising him or her by asking her to marry you under the sea! You’ll be surrounded by fish and colorful coral, and she’ll be so shocked you’ll die of laughter later when you watch it again on your GoPro! To capture it best, hire a guide to do the filming and sign-writing portion! Then you can arrange to grab the sign from him just before, have him positioned to film, and voila! Magic made.
Sunset Sail Proposal
The spectacular light before, and during, sunset is called golden hour for a reason; it adds a golden hue to everything it illuminates, a lovely visual representation of the love you have for your significant other. Which is why we think the idea of proposing during a sunset sail is heartachingly romantic. Coordinate with your resort to arrange to have a private sunset sail; you can have the boat stocked with champagne, snacks, and a photographer!
Enchanting Sand Castle Proposal
This can be done a variety of ways, but all end the same way, with the gorgeous ring perched atop an enchanting sand castle. If you and your future spouse have a history of building sand castles together, then we recommend doing the building together. Afterward, when she’s not looking, place the ring, or the box, somewhere in the castle. You can tell her you hid a surprise for her to find. Or, you could chat with your resort and arrange to have a sand castle built, placed at the end of your pre-meditated romantic beach walk. When you arrive at the sandcastle, get down on one knee, and ask her. You can also arrange to have a photographer waiting!
Post-Private Seaside Yoga Proposal
Do you and your significant other love yoga? What if you arranged to have a private, seaside yoga lesson? During savasana, you quietly set up a little proposal picnic, including you on one knee with the ring. When the instructor (who may be able to double as the photographer) brings you back in awareness post-savasana (yoga nap), she’ll see you and be completely shocked!
Panoramic Island View Proposal
Few things beat panoramic views of a tropical island, but a proposal atop a mountain featuring panoramic views might just take the cake. You can make this happen! Grab your sweetheart and hike to the top of Mt. Christoffel; upon reaching the top, pause for air, take in the views together, and when he, or she, looks away you can get down on one knee and pop the question!
We wish you the best of luck as you plan out your proposal trip. If you are seriously considering a Curacao island proposal, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or logistical needs. We are happy to help make your proposal dreams a reality!
