Hot sun, cold margaritas, and soft sand: a honeymoon in Mexico offers the perfect mix of stunning scenery and well-earned relaxation. Heading south of the border can mean enjoying a honeymoon you won't forget anytime soon. With an enticing range of locations, there is a Mexico honeymoon for every kind of couple. Whether you crave a luxury Cancún getaway or an action-packed Mexico City visit, you'll find the right honeymoon destination for you.
Mexico honeymoon ideas
For a culture-filled Mexico honeymoon, consider a stay in the capital, Mexico City. Established in 1524 by Native Americans, this is the oldest city in the Americas and is brimming with history stretching back to the Aztecs and beyond. As well as discovering treasures such as the 18th-century Chapultepec Castle and an array of museums, young newly-weds will appreciate the resurgent culinary scene and nightlife. Skip the tequila and try local brews such as mezcal or pulque for something truly unique and authentic.
For those couples who fancy some time by glistening turquoise ocean, there are many options available. Cancún has long been a top choice for couples planning a Mexico honeymoon due to its Caribbean climate and array of leisure options. For extra privacy and a romantic setting, there are plenty of oceanfront villas available to rent. This means that leisurely strolls along the water can be followed by a romantic dinner for two at home, should you wish to be alone.
Alternatively, head over to the west coast for a different cultural experience. Puerto Vallarta is more laid back than Cancún, with plenty of secluded beaches. Yet you can still get a helping of culture in the town's numerous independent galleries and by perusing the bustling flea markets in historic Old Vallarta. Other draws here include the area's array of water sports options and the abundant wildlife. Wherever you opt for, a Mexico honeymoon is bound to offer something truly spectacular.
