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, we’re obsessed with a honeymoon in Mexico

Many couples make a beeline for a luxury getaway in one of the many all-inclusive resorts or intimate boutique hotels on beautiful beaches stretch down the Riviera Maya from Cancun to Playa Del Carmen to Tulum on the Caribbean east coast and on the west coast, Cabo San Lucas (known as Cabo) on the tip of the Baja California Peninsula.

You could also opt for the palm-fringed beaches of Puerto Vallarta. These Mexico all inclusive honeymoon package resorts are perfect for those who want to be pampered with flowing drinks, many restaurants, relaxing spas and romantic walks along the beach. Nightlife and adventure are easy to find nearby.

The Rivera Maya is packed full of fun things to do. Discover gems like Isla Holbox (Holbox Island) and take a day trip to Isla de la Pasión. The ancient ruins such as Chichen Itza and pretty towns like Valladolid are a must. Take a dip in one of Riviera Maya’s many cenotes (natural swimming holes). Be sure to check out Dos Ojos, which is one of the largest and most popular cenotes in the area. 

Go snorkelling, horseback riding or quad biking. Visit Las Coloradas, also known as Pink Lake. The hardest part is choosing which town to stay in. Will it be big and brash Cancun or hipster Tulum?

Why not explore more of Mexico? Mérida is just a short hop from Cancun. Visit the Mayan ruins of Uxmal, explore the historic buildings and take a cooking class. Venture into the Mexican junglescapes of Palenque. Explore the ancient temples and stunning waterfalls that dot the area.

You could also explore Oaxaca. This is one of our favourite cities to dive deep into Mexican culture and history.Marvel at the architecture, take a mezcal tour, learn how to make Mole and outside the city you can discover gems like the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mitla, and the natural springs, Hierve el Agua.

Mexico City is one of the most underrated capitals in the Americas. Exciting dining options, delicious street food, fascinating museums and art galleries. Take a day trip to Tolantongo Caves. The Mesoamericana pyramids of Teotihuacán (City of the Gods) are just an hour’s drive away. You’ll be glad you didn’t just stay at the beach.

A honeymoon in Mexico is perfect for foodies. Mexican is one of the world’s great cuisine, so you’ll be in culinary heaven. A honeymoon in Mexico has so much to offer and it’s easy to see why it’s one of the top destinations in the world. 

Although you can see there is so much to see and do on a honeymoon in Mexico, if you want to explore a multi-destination honeymoon, there are so many fun ideas. Love the idea of a romantic road trip honeymoon? Then the USA and Canada have some incredible options. Think about the Rocky Mountains in Canada, California’s Highway 1, the Florida Keys or the Deep South. Don’t forget to plan out a honeymoon playlist.

You could also have a fun city stopover in Toronto, New York, Miami, Las Vegas, Orlando or almost any major North American city. If you want your honeymoon in Mexico to be part of a multi-destination trip, there are also direct flights to other Central & South America and Caribbean honeymoon destinations like Belize, Cuba and the Dominican Republic, Colombia and Peru. If you have more time, travelling overland from Mexico through Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua to Costa Rica is also a popular route for intrepid explorers (you could also take flights if you’re short on time, too).

Best time to visit Mexico

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 the area rarely experiences hurricanes. The west coast around Cabo San Lucas on the Pacific Ocean side 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.
