Thinking about where to go for the perfect honeymoon? If a sunny, exotic location with every convenience you need sounds good, come visit the Mayan Riviera!
Mexico’s Caribbean coast has gorgeously sunny beaches edged with coconut palms and beautiful crystal water. Whether you’re into a totally relaxed, indulgent honeymoon or you’d prefer to do some adventurous sightseeing, you’ll get it all here.
For something unique and memorable, sign up for the turtle-hatching in Akumal or Tulum in the fall months. Or swim with the whale sharks, the gentle giants of the sea. There’s English spoken everywhere, so setting up tours or just getting around may be easier than you think.
Try stand-up paddle-boarding, kayaking, or a little beach volleyball! Stroll the beach hand-in-hand and stop in for a casual candlelit dinner at Fusion or Zenzi’s. The vibe is laidback and fun in this bohemian beach town.
If you’re staying on the island of Cozumel, the scuba diving and snorkelling are an absolute dream! Jump in the stunning clear aqua water and explore to your heart’s content…you could even try some spear-fishing. (When’s the last time you had fresh barracuda or lionfish ceviche?) Then finish off your day with drinks and a sunset meal on the beach. Coz has a rugged coastline, Mayan ruins, protected reefs, and more. It’s perfect for that couple looking for a little tranquility.
Several condos feature outdoor whirlpools so you can soak away any stress from the wedding. The scenery is gorgeous no matter what the weather is like…for those rainy days, catch a movie, shop at one of Playa’s 4 malls, try a massage or do a spa day for the ultimate relaxation.
All of this is easily within reach for many travelers—just a few hours’ plane ride if you’re coming from Canada or the USA.
Congrats, you tied the knot! Now it’s time to celebrate! Come on down for some sun, sand and sea.
