With beautiful resorts, oceanside views, colorful culture, and attentive service, it is no wonder that Mexico has the reputation of being one of the most romantic getaways in the world for planning an amazing honeymoon. Here are 6 reasons why I believe Mexico could be the perfect location for your honeymoon!
1 – Easy to Get to From U.S. Gateways
With several nonstop flight options, same-day arrivals, and departures, plus multiple flights per day, a romantic beach honeymoon is at your fingertips. And with multiple flights, it gives you plenty of backup options in case of delays or cancellations.
2 – Romantic Resorts for Every Couple’s Style and Taste
When it comes to the accommodations, you’ll have your pick of the best. From lavish mega resorts to hacienda-style boutique hotels and everything in between! Plus, if you’re looking for an adult-only escape, there are multiple resort properties that offer the ideal atmosphere for couples who want a romantic honeymoon void of screaming children!
3 – The Best Bang For Your Buck is in Mexico!
Honestly, the level of luxury provided for the price is quite remarkable. From world-class spas to beach butlers taking care of your every need while you relax on the beach, you can’t go wrong with a luxury resort in Mexico.
4 – Incredible Service
If you are looking for incredible service for the money, Mexico will get you the most bang for your buck when it comes to the level of luxury and service you receive for the price. Part of the reason is that Mexico is just miles ahead of other destinations when it comes to hospitality & tourism. A quote I once heard from a travel insider pretty much sums it up like this, “In [the location I was at] if your drink spills, a waiter will come right away to clean it up. In Mexico, the wait staff will see the glass at the edge of the table and come to push it back.”
5 – Tons of Amazing Activities
One of the best parts of planning a honeymoon to Mexico is the incredible amount of activities and sites you and your new spouse can experience and make new memories together.
- If you are celebrating your honeymoon from December – April? Head to Cabo or Puerto Vallarta to do some whale watching!
- Interested in UNESCO World Heritage sites? Visit one of the 7 Wonders of the World – Chichen Itza while on your honeymoon in the Riviera Maya, Mexico.
- Want to have shopping and nightlife at your fingertips? Playa del Carmen’s 5th Avenue, the hotel zone of Cancun, the Malecon Blvd in Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas are sure to please!
Looking for adventure, golf, or fishing? Take your pick! There’s so much to experience when you visit Mexico!
6 – Two Unique Areas of Mexico to Choose From
Mexico has two completely different, but equally romantic & beautiful areas to enjoy an amazing honeymoon!
- Caribbean Side
- Pacific Side
The Caribbean Side
The Caribbean side of Mexico is located on the Yucatan Peninsula along the Caribbean sea, and is the most popular area of Mexico for any type of travel. This is where Cancun, Riviera Maya, and many of the other popular destination wedding spots are located. Everything mentioned above will be available to you on the Caribbean side of Mexico, including white sand beaches and the ability to enjoy the Caribbean Sea if you love getting in the water.
The Pacific Side
The Pacific Side of Mexico is of course located along the Pacific Ocean and was originally best known for travel spots such as Puerto Vallarta, and Acapulco, but now the hottest new spots to travel or honeymoon in Mexico is in either Cabo San Lucas or Puerto Vallarta!
Located at the end of the Baja Coast, Cabo is home to luxury resorts, amazing foodie experiences, championship golf, yoga retreats, movie star getaways, and authentic cultural experiences. The beaches are wide and beautiful here as well, but darker sand than the Caribbean side, and are not usually swimmable due to the ocean currents and rip tides.
Known for its charming towns and people, the stunning landscape of sea and mountain, plus colorful culture and marine life, it’s easy to see why Puerto Vallarta is one of the most popular vacation destinations for honeymoons!
Which Part of Mexico is Best For Your Honeymoon?
The hardest decision you’ll have to make when planning a honeymoon to Mexico is which part of Mexico is best for your needs and which resort or hotel will give you the atmosphere you are looking for. That’s where having the assistance of a honeymoon designer can come in handy.
Mexico is the perfect destination for a honeymoon because there is something for every couple. If you’re looking for an active honeymoon, Mexico has plenty of opportunities to enjoy golf, snorkel, scuba dive, visit an echo park or historic site, and even ride horses along the beach. If relaxing on the beach and enjoying a few drinks is more your speed, that’s also not a problem in Mexico. Your honeymoon can be as lively or laid back as you want it to be.
