Altitude Trampoline Park

If you want a different scenario and something more active, then altitude is what you're looking for. You can find one in Gurabo and Bayamon. There's not much that you can do than jump but inside the trampolines, there's a basketball ring, a dodgeball court, a battle team and a foam pit. You can jump for an hour or for two depending on what you order at the front desk, and if you get tired you can buy a pizza or just dine at another place.


The Beach

Another great place to go to is the beach. The beach can be such a romantic place to go for Valentine’s day. A place where you can enjoy the tropical vibes and the fresh breeze.  At the beach you can have a picnic, you can play with “paletas”, you can play volleyball, you can have a sand ball war, you can chill with your significant other, and last but not least you can lay on the sand and watch the sunset together. You also can visit Culebra and Vieques. 


The movies

Even though at the movies you can't talk much with your significant other it's a place where you can enjoy the silence of each other. At the movies, you can enjoy the cuddles and hand holding with your partner, and at the end, you can talk about your favorite parts of the movies and have a fresh topic to talk about.


Dave & Busters

Dave & Busters is a really fun place to go with your partner. There are tons of machines that you can play with and compete against your partner. You can also enjoy their restaurant. Here you can have lots of laughs, and if you get bored of playing with the machines you can always walk around the mall and then enjoy a movie since it's at Plaza Del Sol.


Bowling Alley

If you guys like to get competitive but with the flirtatious vibe, bowling is the perfect thing for you guys to do. When bowling you guys can have a lot of fun, you can be flirty with each other, and you can get competitive in a playful way. You guys can also dine in the bowling alley and go to the mini arcade they have when the time for bowling ends.


By just spreading your love with that extra special someone is what will make their day on Valentine’s. Small details and happiness are what really counts on this day. So, don’t be a stranger to this locations and go on a wonderful date.
