Romantic Vacation to Riviera Maya, Mexico
The Riviera Maya is a wonderful vacation destination for couples. There is so much to enjoy with the culture, history, beaches, food, nightlife and activities for a romantic vacation in Mexico.
Here are my travel tips and suggestions for a romantic getaway to the Riviera Maya, Mexico:
Where to Go
Riviera Maya – between Playa del Carmen to Tulum area
When to Go
November – April
How long should you stay
5 – 8 days
Recommended places to stay:
If you are looking for romance and a complete getaway for you and your significant other, stay at an adults-only all-inclusive!
I highly recommend El Dorado Seaside Resort
This is a beautiful property for adults only, it is a smaller more quaint resort.
You truly don’t need to leave the resort but if you do you are really close to the Tulum ruins.
It is just under a 2 hour transfer from the Cancun Airport so if you are short on time, try to stay closer to Playa del Carmen or even north of there.
If you are looking for a place that is closer to the town of Playa del Carmen, check out these two resorts:
Check the reviews for all of these recommendations on Trip Advisor.
What are the top things to do at the resorts:
Water activities like snorkeling and kayaking
Drinking (if you are at an all-inclusive, you have to get your money worth)
Paint pottery (they will make sure to touch it up and make it look like a professional did it)
And lots of other planned activities at the resorts.
Nearby activities to do:
Playa del Carmen for shopping and real Mexican food
Xcaret Eco Theme Park
Ferry to Cozumel
Day trip to Chichen Itza and Coba
Cenote Chaak Tun
The Jungle Place – make sure to book in advance
Akumal Beach for snorkeling and turtles
