Mexico’s Most Romantic Destinations #Travel

When Mexico is in the right price range, close enough to travel to for the weekend and has everything to offer that you are looking for, it can be the best option for a romantic getaway. Some parts of Mexico feel like tropical getaways, others provide hidden mountain retreats, and then there are the cultural city centers. Whatever the occasion, there are so many reasons to take a romantic vacation, even if you are single. Some areas of the country are more expensive than others, because they are popular with tourists and have all the amenities that you could ask for while on vacation.

No matter what your budget, there is a romantic destination in Mexico calling your name. Learn more about some of the best places for you to plan a future trip.

No matter what part of Mexico you visit, vacation rentals are a romantic way to spruce up a vacation. Rentals can be really cheap at times, and incredibly upscale, so you’re sure to find something that you and your partner will be talking about for years. The best part of vacation rentals is that they are usually completely private, giving you and your loved one some well deserved alone time.


Riviera Nayarit

For a remote, cut off part of Mexico, head to Riviera Nayarit, known for its down to earth luxury in a little known part of the country. Nayarit sits on the Pacific Ocean side of Mexico, with most of the small towns hugging the coastline because down here the forest is still mostly untouched and unspoiled. With so many natural protected areas, and the animals that call this part of the land home, you are more likely to see hordes of sea turtles than crowds of people. If you want to do some good while you are vacationing, what can be more romantic than walking the beaches in the moonlight as you guard sea turtle eggs and hatchlings trying to make it to the ocean.

Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen is known for its powdery sands and slow, laid back vibe where tourists in the know head instead of Cancun. More exclusive and private, there are several luxury resorts and retreats set up that cater to couples, singles and families. Here in Playa del Carmen you are closest to the sea and can take advantage of the opportunity to find hidden and private beaches. Horseback rides on the beach and into the rain forests, where ancient civilizations once thrived.


Merida is the capital city of Yucatan and has long been a cultural hub owing to its position as a stronghold of Spanish colonists. Its one of the largest historic districts in the Western Hemisphere and the architecture is interesting because it is a mix of French, Spanish and then Mayan motifs pulled from the nearby city ruins. If you are an old romantic, the many haciendas that have lined the city for years make the perfect retreat to fully immerse yourself in the culture, beauty and food of this area of Mexico. If you are feeling indulgent, arrange for spa treatments that use ancient techniques and ingredients.


Known as the intellectual capital of Mexico, Morelia is home to colonial theaters, cathedrals, municipal buildings and cloisters that have been converted into a unique shopping district. This well preserved city leaves you feeling like you’ve stepped back in time to a day when romance and chivalry were the norm. Open air music, rooftop dining at some of the best restaurants in the country and romantic suites in some of the most beautiful hotels await. Just like the city, romance has been updated so traditions are respected and beauty is showcased.

Have you been to any of these?
