Penelope and Javier Share Romantic Getaway

After years of hard work, Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem sure are enjoying the good life. The couple, who got their starts together nearly 15 years ago in Spain, recently reunited on the big screen in Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona and took their on-screen chemistry off-screen recently.

The pair took a week-long trip to the exclusive Cayo Espanto, a private island resort off the coast of Belize, where they went scuba diving, had picnics on the beach and flew in helicopters.

"They enjoyed their privacy," a source tells OK! Magazine.

Though their relationship status is clear even to the blind, Penélope and Javier still refuse to publicly step out as a couple or talk about their romance, opting instead to dodge paparazzi and take vacations on remote, shutterbug-free islands such as the Maldives, where they stayed in October.

We're glad Penélope and Javier are still going strong, but when are they going to walk a red carpet together already! Perhaps at the 2009 Oscars if Vicky Cristina Barcelona is a contender?
