I pronounce you Husband and Wife
Time to choose the best honeymoon destination!
I do! It’s time to share, to live an unforgettable experience, venturing into the unknown, to go hand in hand anywhere in the world, after all, for kisses and cuddles you’ll have a lifetime. Your honeymoon is a once in a lifetime experience, so choosing the right honeymoon destination is very important! Here I’ll tell you how:
1.- Fall in love with Quintana Roo
For those looking for a getaway from the noise and civilization, Xcalak is the best option: one of the last unspoiled corners of the Mexican Caribbean. It’s located at the southern end of the Riviera Maya. Definitely a world-renowned honeymoon destination.
It is known as one of the “hidden havens of Mexico”. Whether you prefer to snorkel or dive, you’ll admire Banco Chinchorro: the best-preserved coral reef in Mexico (protected as a Biosphere Reserve).
In Banco Chinchorro, there are shipwrecks, which over time have become an ecosystem full of life. Different species of coral abound, making this a perfect destination for Honeymoon-lovers. The diving season lasts almost all year, as it’s waters are always warm. How can you not love this magical place?
Another place you should visit in Quintana Roo is Sian Ka’an. I recommend visiting the path of Canan Há, where you’ll find a 56 feet tall viewpoint, perfect for taking pictures of a honeymoon filled with adventure. Then, you can head to the Muyil lagoon, the largest of the 22 pre-Hispanic settlements of Sian Ka’an.
Venture to have an untraditional honeymoon in this beautiful place. Enjoy the beauty of the Route of the Cenotes in Puerto Morelos. Connect with nature and let your love be loaded with Mayan energy in Xenotes.
2.- Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco
If your thing is to be surrounded by nature, I guarantee you will love Puerto Vallarta. If you’re traveling between December and April, make sure to admire the natural show of the giant humpback whales, rent a boat to see them up close.
Imagine a walk holding hands down the wide walkway called the “Malecon”, admiring the amazing views of the sea. In Downtown Puerto Vallarta you’ll find an outdoors art gallery, some say that “if you didn’t take a picture on the stairs, you never visited Puerto Vallarta.”

At night, sit on a bench and admire the moonlight over the water, (perfect place to talk about future plans). One of the must-see in this magical place are the Marietas Islands. You must know it’s not allowed to stay overnight in the islands, but anyways it’ll be an adventure to remember.
3.- San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas.
May your love grow with each step you take in the jungle of Chiapas. San Cristobal de las Casas is one of the most romantic cities in the world, known as “Pueblo Mágico” of colonial tradition.
Take a walk through the cobblestone streets of San Cristobal, reach the top and admire the town hall and the cathedral’s impressive architecture. A steep staircase will lead to the Temple of San Cristobal: the best view of the city. Don’t miss a visit to the market, you’ll find delicious candies and traditional crafts, embroidered textiles, amber jewelry, jade and beautiful pottery.
Are you a food lover? Explore the Coffee Route and the Dutch Cheese Route in Chiapas. A must-try option to eat in San Cristobal is the “chipilin soup” and the greatest diversity of tamales known in Mexico. Connect with nature in the “Agua Azul” waterfalls, among the visitors favorites.

Costa Esmeralda extends between the colorful towns of Tecolutla and Nautla, the waves are perfect for swimming and snorkel. A place for those who enjoy the simple pleasures: lie on the sand, feel the sea breeze, warm weather and enjoy delicious dishes at the seashore.
Visiting this place won’t be a big expense, there are accommodation and food options according to the budget, like a beautiful Hotel-Boutique called Azúcar. The quiet beaches of Costa Esmeralda contrast with the extreme adventures you will find in Filobobos River, where you’ll feelthe adrenaline with fast and thrilling waterfalls. This adventure has three sections: the high, the intermediate and the low Filobobos (it depends on the season of the year). 5.- Playa del Amor, Cabo San Lucas It’s said that the name comes from a legend: a Japanese sailor was rescued by a local woman and fell in love, but the woman’s father opposed the relationship and in a fit of anger he fatally wounded the sailor. The young woman in desperation decides to take her life to finally meet her lover.
This beach now known as “Playa del Amor” is a short distance by sea from Cabo San Lucas, is the last beach lapped by the waters of the Sea of Cortes. It’s a natural aquarium with many species of fish of all colors and beautiful sea lions sunbathing.
It is a place that has no shops, so I recommend preparing a romantic dinner and maybe a bottle of champagne to toast to the start of a great adventure picnic. Remember to bring your sunscreen and snorkel gear if you want to enjoy the underwater wonders. Get ready to fill the air with love on the white sands of the only beach in the world that links two seas: the Sea of Cortes and the Pacific Ocean.
What would be the ideal honeymoon destination to begin your happily ever after?
