Cancun and the Riviera Maya are the number one international destinations for Americans for Valentine’s Day. That’s a fact. Its white-sand beaches, stunning sunsets, and exciting activities, make the Riviera Maya an ideal location for a romantic getaway. Better yet, however, retiring to the area could be as romantic as ever. And since we’re celebrating Valentine’s Day today, you want to make sure you have the perfect day planned for your loved one.
Playa del Carmen: romance by the sea
Begin your romantic day with a special couple’s photoshoot on the beach. Playa del Carmen has a booming wedding industry and there is no shortage of excellent, skilled and experienced photographers to capture a beautiful set of photos. You also won’t struggle to find the perfect location. Just pick one of the innumerable white-sand beaches and catch the colorful sunrise.
If you’re feeling slightly more adventurous, you can follow your photoshoot with a horseback ride on the beach. Just 20 minutes from the city you can take a tour with experienced guides. These tours offer the perfect opportunity to share the beauty of the Riviera Maya with your loved one, admiring the lush jungle and the stunning beaches.
When it comes to a dinner date, Playa del Carmen has plenty of offer. There are a handful of restaurants offering couple’s dinners including champagne and three-course meals. In fact, one of the most romantic restaurants in the area is not even in the tourist zone. Alux is located inside a cavern that is over 10,000 years old. The food is mouthwatering, as well. This is an unforgettable dining experience, and will surely inspire your love for years to come.
Tulum: a laidback romance
Just imagine starting your day off at a high-end, five-star spa. Your experience will include Mayan rituals designed to align you to the rhythms of nature for enhanced well-being. That is as Tulum as one can get. You can get a couple’s treatment, as well, with a steam bath and a massage. You are spoiled for choices when it comes to spas in Tulum, but we definitely recommend Maya Spa at Azulik Hotel.
After spending a whole day relaxing, you can pick one of the many beachfront restaurants at the hotel zone in Tulum for dinner. Enjoy the bright colors of the sky that the sunset creates. You could try your luck at Mi Amor. Inspired by both French and Italian cuisine – the most romantic of them all – this highly-rated restaurant will provide a perfect conclusion to your relaxing and romantic day together. End the day with a romantic walk on the beach.
