A few miles south the world-famous Cancun, the Riviera Maya spans 81 miles of Caribbean coastline. Couples can stay at one of the many luxurious all-inclusive resorts. If honeymooners ever venture beyond the amenities of their hotel, they can visit the many small towns and archaeological sites along the way, such as Puerto Morelos or Tulum. A wide variety of activities await avid travelers, such as sightseeing Mayan ruins or visiting a picturesque cenote. Whether you’re the explorer type, or would rather just lounge in a resort, Riviera Maya is one of the best destinations for a honeymoon in Mexico.

The beautiful coastal town of Puerto Vallarta brags the title of the “most romantic destination in Mexico“. Hundreds visit Vallarta to awe at the stunning flora and fauna, as well as enjoy the delicious food. Newlywed couples rejoice in the warm atmosphere – as in, both the sunny climate and the friendly mood of the residents.
Vallarta prides in its inclusiveness, as it happens to be one of the most gay-friendly destinations in the country. Because of this, Travel website Lonely Planet calls it the LGBT beach capital of Mexico.

The Mexican city of Oaxaca is best enjoyed with an open mind and empty stomach. Its extraordinary cuisine is world-renowned for its many specialties, including a spicy chocolate-based sauce and fried grasshoppers. Try a different dish every night and don’t be afraid to take one of the many cooking classes available to tourists!
You can then burn the calories by walking down the city’s streets on the lookout for its many shops and markets. Wedding website The Knot particularly recommends the Mercado de la Merced. Buy unique handcrafts, take some tasty ingredients home, or just gaze at the colorful colonial architecture.
