6 Ideas for your Honeymoon in the Riviera Maya


Is the Riviera Maya the perfect destination for your honeymoon? With its paradisiacal landscapes, romantic sunsets, adventurous excursions, luxurious resorts, and delicious food and drinks, it definitely is!


Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum are some of the most iconic cities within the Riviera. They offer an insane amount of exciting activities for newlyweds, but these are the best ones:


Candle-lit dinners by the beach


Nothing says romance more than discovering the exotic flavors of the Maya cuisine in a table lit only by the moon and candles by the beach. There are plenty of resorts and high-end restaurants in Tulum that offer this experience so you can choose the one that offers your favorite foods.


Relaxing days in paradise


Enjoy the calmness of the Riviera Maya with a massage for you and your loved one during a spa day. Alternating exciting days with chill ones is the perfect recipe for an incredible honeymoon. After getting pampered at the spa, continue the relaxation under a palapa by the beach with a cold drink. Just picture chilling in a beach bed with one hand holding a piña colada, and the other one holding your lover’s hand.


Shopping is never a bad idea


Treat yourselves to some extra wedding gifts in the luxurious boutiques and shopping malls of Tulum and Playa del Carmen. Some earrings, a cute pair of sunglasses, a new bathing suit, you name it! There’s not a better time to indulge in new things than at the beginning of a marriage.


Swimming in the moonlight


The Riviera Maya is full of opportunities to go for a swim: the beach, cenotes, jacuzzis, and pools. Make sure to bring enough bathing suits for your stay because it sure will be a holiday full of water.  Try to book a hotel room or Airbnb with a private jacuzzi or pool to go for night swims as they are the most romantic ones.


Getting a little adrenaline dose


Perhaps skydiving or scuba diving are not the first things to pop into one’s mind when thinking about ideas for your honeymoon in the Riviera Maya. However, it would be a great idea to spice your vacations up with an extreme activity like parasailing, riding jet skis, or even swimming with whale sharks.

TIP: Channel that feeling of safety that your life partner gives you to venture into crazy things you’d never think about doing. That way, you’ll go home with memories that will last forever!


Discovering ancient traditions


Going on adventures as newlyweds will be an extraordinary experience! Especially so if you decide to discover Maya ruins like Tulum, Coba, or Chichen Itza. The first one, Tulum, is world-famous for being one of the only Maya civilizations by the sea. Coba is unique because it lets you climb its tallest pyramid and you can cycle your way through the whole archeological site.


Chichen Itza is one of the new seven wonders of the world, so there is no reason not to take your soulmate there and have a fantastic time. Don’t worry about how to get there; Land Savvy has you covered with its personalized transportations to all the sites mentioned before.
