Ancient Mayan and Aztec history, unique and taste-bud-blowing cuisine, tropical jungle adventures, exciting, colourful cities, and the palm-fringed beaches along both coasts with the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets, a honeymoon in Mexico is a perfect choice.

Many couples make a beeline for luxury getaways in all-inclusive resorts or intimate boutique hotels on the Riviera Maya from Cancun to Playa Del Carmen to Tulum or the west coast’s Cabo and Puerto Vallarta. The Caribbean coastline also has gems like Isla Holbox. These Mexico honeymoon package resorts are perfect for those who want to be pampered with flowing drinks and many restaurants, relaxing spas, romantic walks along the beach with nightlife not too hard to find..

Why not explore more of Mexico? Mexico City has an exciting museum scene and sites like the Mesoamericana pyramids of Teotihuacán (City of the Gods) are just an hour’s drive away. You could also explore Oaxaca with colourful markets and indigenous culture. You’ll be glad you didn’t just stay at the beach. Of course, we must mention the food! Mexican is one of the world’s great cuisines, culinary heaven, perfect for a foodie honeymoon.


Mexico has a varied climate so is a good option for honeymoon all year round. The rainy season on the Riviera Maya from Cancun to Tulum coincides with hurricane season in the Caribbean from June to October. From August to October is the riskiest time for adverse weather, although it rarely experiences hurricanes. Cabo San Lucas on the Pacific Ocean west coast in Baja California gets very little rain throughout the year. High-altitude destinations like Oaxaca and other areas of central Mexico can experience cooler temperatures during winter (November to February). The best time to visit Mexico is from November to May.


Is Mexico good for a honeymoon? Yes, it’s perfect for a beach honeymoon with a dash of food, culture and history.

How long do you need for a honeymoon in Mexico? We recommend at least 7 nights if just heading to the beach and longer if you’re going to explore the rest of the country.
