Honeymoon in the Maya Riviera

When it comes to honeymoon destinations, the Riviera Maya has it all: fun, adventure and romance.

Stretching along Mexico’s Gulf Coast, the Riviera Maya runs from Playa del Carmen to Tulum. It’s fun in the sun year round, and is packed with things to do for all kinds of honeymooners.


When looking for the perfect place to honeymoon in Riviera Maya, Puerto Aventuras, Mexico boasts upscale condominium rentals and upscale resorts, much of which surround this town’s romantic marina area. Some of the vacation rentals are nestled in the marina, yet still have beach access (with great snorkeling), as well as swimming pools.




The marina at Puerto Aventuras hosts multiple restaurants that have fantastic food of all sorts, but I highly recommend The Pub. While the name may scream “British,” this restaurant serves some of the best Mexican food in the marina. Quite frankly, their ceviche is out of this world.  It’s one of those meals that has people coming back for more.

Plus, honeymooners who go on fishing excursions are able to have the chefs at this restaurant prepare their personal catch. Here patrons are able to enjoy El Dorado (or whatever their catch was) served three ways, and each are just as fantastic as the other.


For some spectacular fresh fish, prepared amazingly well, be sure to enjoy the Mahi Mahi at Dos Chiles. Their authentic Mexican food is excellent too, like their incredible Shrimp Fajitas. What pairs well with their food is their beautiful al fresco dining overlooking the marina.


After dinner, honeymooners may enjoy an evening stroll with some velvety gelato from Jessie’s Gelato, through the marina, and may even get a glimpse or two of late night swimming dolphins and sea lions. (When visiting Jessie’s, be sure to meet Martin, the owner, and ask for the secret flavor, “Whoops.” He only makes that by special request!)
