Can Romance and Adventure Marry?

How do you pair romance and adventure?  Seems impossible to be able to be drenched in almost sinful sensual luxury at the resort of your dreams one moment, then scream in wild exuberance the next while battling a mammoth sailfish miles off the Caribbean coast!  So let’s face it, you could search the web for hours and come up with a list of fantastic tour ideas.
