If there is anywhere in the world that houses the best kept romantic-getaway secrets it is Mexico’s Riviera Maya. Travel no more than 40 minutes south of bustling Cancun to find a stretch of Caribbean coast covered in white sand that is peppered with quaint villages, Mayan ruins, beach restaurants and so much more. Akumal, Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, Tulum and the island of Cozumel, all unique in their own ways, offer charms that add an extra spark to any romantic relationship.
Playa del Carmen is famous for 5th avenue, an avenue known for its romantic bohemia-chic feel. For an added spark try a candlelit late-night dinner at one of the many restaurants offering outdoor seating near Calle Corazón (Heart Street). If fresh air is what you need, stroll, bike, swim, snorkel or kayak in Tres Rios Nature Park.
Mayan ruins are not generally thought to be romantic but the ones in Tulum will change your mind about that. Small in stature, the dark ruins drastically contrast with the aqua blue of the nearby water and the white sand beach, making it the perfect place to stand hand-in-hand with your partner and muse over what it must have been like for couples thousands and thousands of years ago in that very spot.
Water-filled caves and underground rivers and thick tropical jungles …oh my! Akumal is Mexico’s ecological hub offering a never-ending list of outdoor activities ranging from cave diving to participating in sea-turtle preservation. It may not suitable for those who wish to sun themselves all day on a beach bed but for couples that thrive on being active and outdoors, it is absolute perfection.
Just north of Playa del Carmen and south of Cancun, Puerto Morelos is a bit less touristy and offers an authentic taste of life in the Mexico Caribbean. It’s the perfect place for couples seeking more of a cultural experience, couples wishing to do not much more than breath in the fresh salt-water air, dig their toes in the sand and enjoy their sunny and sandy surroundings.
Every year thousands of tourist flock to Mexico’s sea gem, Cozumel to dive. With the world’s second largest-barrier reef just off its coast, diving is the best thing the island has to offer making it a romantic destination for couples ready to spend hours together under the sea.
