Mexico is one of our most popular honeymoon destinations, the combination of Mexican culture and luxurious beach escapes ensure newlyweds come back relaxed and happy.
Mexico is located between the Pacific Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, sharing a border with North America, Guatemala and Belize.
There are quite a few different areas that collectively make up Mexico and for your honeymoon we recommend either Cancun, Riviera Maya or Los Cabos. Riviera Maya is the ideal location for your honeymoon stretching from Playa del Carmen to the breathtaking cliff-top ruins at Tulum. Riviera Maya is also home to some of Mexico’s best beaches and uber luxurious resorts. Our favourite is Paradisus Playa Del Carmen La Perla … enjoy a swim-up room and royal butler service throughout your stay.
A must-see during your stay in Mexico is the ancient Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, where you will see the Calendar Temple and the ancient courts the Mayans played Pok Pok. Also, the Riveira Maya is home to the marvellous Xcaret archaeological park. Discover underground rivers, lagoons and pools, or venture to the other side of the park to meet the spider monkeys, turtles and swim with dolphins. In the evening more than 300 actors and performers take visitors on a musical journey of Mexico.
Located at the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsular, Los Cabos is another great location in Mexico is Los Cabos where you’ll find a range of exclusive resorts and maybe even a famous face or two. The chic selection of resorts in this region are only topped by the wonderful surrounding with some of Central America’s finest beaches and some brilliant diving sites. The main town, Cabo San Lucas is a great place to take advantage of some of the many boutiques and the vibrant nightlife is a real highlight.
