Mexico Honeymoon Destination: Riviera Maya
Mexico honeymoon -- Just a hop, skip and a cab ride away from its more raucous neighbors, this part of Mexico offers a quiet 'moon filled with beach lounging, town exploring, nature watching—and all the guac you can eat.
You might be surprised that a place so near Cancún—a town where, likely as not, you and 15 of your closet college buds once played quarters with shots of Jose Cuervo—would be where you’d choose to spend the first blissful days of your marriage. But there you have it: The Riviera Maya, nestled cozily between beach and jungle, just 45 minutes by shuttle from the Cancún airport, offers one of the most luxurious, peaceful and unforgettable escapes in all of Mexico—maybe all the Western Hemisphere. Spend your honeymoon at the gorgeous, nature-inspired Rosewood Mayakoba Resort, and the world outside—not to mention the last few months of your planning craze—just washes away.
BY DAY: There’s really nothing better than lounging in a striped cabana by the pool (which is also right by the ocean), with practiced servers attending to your every margarita-and-guacamole need. You’ll spend many happy hours just switching chairs, from the beautiful open-air bar to beach to cabana and back again.
