Honeymoon in Mexico

After the wedding, life as a couple gets off on the right foot in a place of romance and beauty.

For your honeymoon to become an unforgettable experience, as well as the best possible start to the rest of your life, there is nothing better than to enjoy it in paradise-like, romantic places, where you can sense love and tranquility on the breeze.

Enjoying as a couple a traverse through the mountains, rivers, lakes, beaches and desert landscapes, where exciting emotions and recreational activities are to be had, can transform a regular honeymoon into one immersed in adventure and romantic, unforgettable moments.

The Mexican coasts, as blue as the sky, for example, offer exotic drinks, delicious, top-quality food, prepared according to the purest national traditions – plus lots of fun. After a great day on the beach, you and your partner can take on the night on lively streets full of merrymaking, and enjoy the bars, restaurants, stores and boutiques.

Once you are tired of dancing and shopping, it is time for bed. The hotels are prepared to cater for new couples as they deserve, laying on romance and allowing them to enjoy their new lives in a relaxed manner. Your hosts will take care of everything, from small details in your suite to body treatments for couples that mean you can enjoy every moment together in peaceful and sensual surroundings.

Mexico boasts paradises such as you will find nowhere else, including Cancun and the Riviera Maya in the Yucatan Peninsula, Huatulco on the coast of Oaxaca, and Costalegre and Puerto Vallarta in Jalisco state. All these destinations possess tourist services of the highest quality, ranging from rustic, romantic cabins to exquisite suites of the highest quality.

Even if the beach is not your idea of fun, you can also enjoy your honeymoon in one of the country’s Pueblos Mágicos (“Magical towns”), such as Papantla, in Veracruz; Malinalco, in Morelos; Santa Clara del Cobre, in Michoacán; or Taxco, in Guerrero, the peaceful surroundings of which offer a romantic ambience, full of spas and relaxation clinics, as well as interesting archeological sites and religious and cultural traditions.
