3. Most Romantic Places in the World to Propose: Bartolome Island — Ecuador
Bartolome Island in the Galapagos archipelago is a young formation — the top of a collapsed volcano rising from the sea. The beautiful golden beach is bordered with thorn shrub and saltbush, while the hills are red and barren, with gray mat plant and a few lava cacti growing from the rock. Towering above the golden beach is Pinnacle Rock. Surrounded by the cold, aqua sea, this "rock" has become an icon of the Galapagos. Blue-footed Boobies, Red-billed Tropicbirds and elegant Brown Noddies encircle the island as they fish. Galapagos Penguins, the northernmost of their family, preen on the rocks along the water's edge. The romance begins upon landing and traversing the boardwalk trail, which leads to a climb of over 350 steps. The climb takes you to the highest point on the island, the overlook to view Pinnacle Rock. This vantage point is where the rush of being in the Galapagos surfaces for many. (In fact, the tour owner proposed here — and she said YES!)
4. Most Romantic Places in the World to Propose: Hacienda San Angel — Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Hacienda San Angel, one of Puerto Vallarta's most intimate and luxurious boutique hotels, nestled high above cobblestone streets and blessed with majestic views of the Sierra Madre Mountains and azure Banderas Bay, offers a divine setting for sweethearts in search of romance, luxury, pampering and the picture-perfect proposal. Proposal arrangements can be made ahead time—from securing the suite of choice to a private balcony dinner with a Mariachi serenade to an artesian tequila tasting. There are plenty of options for wooing one's true love. Romantic doesn't begin to portray the ambiance of tenderness and exclusiveness that fills the courtyards and areas of this amazing boutique resort. Sparkling cascades, perfumed frangipani, fine linens and vintage fixtures are barely a few of the stylish touches that help blend peaceful sophistication with rustic simplicity. Three ponds, a fine dining roof top restaurant, an open-air wedding chapel and in-room spa services are all part of the attraction.
