Love is in Cancun
Celebrate your love by sunset in the Mexico Caribbean with its soft, white sand beaches and its turquoise-blue Caribbean Sea. When planning a romantic vacation for two, consider a Cancun travel getaway that offers all the travel attractions, activities, and tours you could possibly want: romantic hotel rooms, white sand beaches, Mexico gourmet cuisine, Mayan ruins, and of course, the intoxicating Cancun nightlife.
Cancun is one of the most romantic places to travel. Couples will find a variety of daytime and nighttime attractions and activities in and around the area, including the Riviera Maya, just south of Cancun. There are many wonderful things to do for couples to create beautiful memories that you’ll cherish and remember for years to come. Here are some travel tips and travel ideas to consider while on your romantic vacation or getaway.
Romantic Hotels in Cancun
You’ll find many romantic Cancun hotels and resorts to choose from, but some of the best discount hotels, affordable vacation packages, and luxurious all inclusive resorts are the Ocean Spa Hotel, Laguna Suites Golf + Spa resort, and Hacienda Tres Rios Resort, the endless luxury, all inclusive resort. If you like to live it up, you may want to stay closer to the action at the Ocean Spa Hotel or Laguna Suites Golf + Spa Resort, located in the Hotel Zone near many Cancun nightclubs. If you prefer a quieter vacation in an unspoiled nature park, you may want to stay at Hacienda Tres Rios in the Tres Rios Nature Park in the Riviera Maya.
Mexican Food at its Finest
Mexican food, whether hot and spicy or mild and tangy, is always full of flavor. Cancun has plenty of restaurants where you’ll find both gourmet Mexican food and traditional Mexican food. Some regional Mexican specialties you should try while traveling are Cochinita Pibil, marinated pork in a savory mix of local spices, and Mole con Pollo, roasted chicken in a signature rich, hot, spicy Mexican sauce – both not to be missed. Most Mexican food, whether traditional or gourmet, offers delicacies prepared with various types of chili peppers, known to be natural aphrodisiacs. Hot and spicy for two!
Mayan Ruins of Inspiration
Spend an inspiring day together at the ancient Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza in the Yucatan, recently named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, and see the awe-inspiring Kukulkan Pyramid. Indulge in an ancient herbal steam bath called Temazcal in the historical city of Tulum, where a fortress of Mayan ruins overlooks the Caribbean Sea. Delight in the unparalleled natural beauty of Coba, where the Mayan ruins are enveloped in lush green jungles and exotic plants. Don’t miss the wonderful heritage of ancient Mayan civilizations on your vacation to the Mexico Caribbean, only a short distance away from Cancun.
Enjoy some of the best daytime activities with one of the many travel attractions and tours at your disposal. Xcaret nature park in the Riviera Maya will impress you with its cenotes (cave-like sinkholes with natural wells), underground rivers, a beach, plus cultural shows and regional exhibitions. If you’d rather ride with the wind, go horseback riding on the beach or take a horseback riding tour through the jungle. You might enjoy kayaking through native mangroves in the lagoons and rivers, or go snorkeling in exotic Tres Rios Nature Park where jungle plants and animals thrive, and three rivers meet the Caribbean Sea. Awaken your senses to the fullness of life, and cherish your experience together.
Whether you want to dance the night away or relax on the peaceful, white sand beaches of the Caribbean Sea with a few exotic drinks, Cancun has it all, even dinner and party cruises. The nightlife in Cancun and the Riviera Maya offers a variety of nightclubs and lounges in both the Cancun Hotel Zone and Playa del Carmen’s La Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue).
If you prefer to live it up, try Coco Bongo or Basic Discotheque nightclubs in the Cancun Hotel Zone. For a change of pace, visit Bling lounge, an upscale nightclub overlooking Nichupte Lagoon also in the Hotel Zone. Venture out a little farther to Playa del Carmen’s La Quinta Avenida, and dance the night away to popular music at Retro disco or Latin music at Mambo Café. Both the Cancun Hotel Zone and Playa del Carmen’s La Quinta Avenida offer a variety of nightclubs, bars, and lounges to suit every taste.
On your vacation to the Mexico Caribbean, you’ll find many wonderful travel tours, attractions, and activities, such as exquisite beaches, nature parks, Mayan ruins, endless luxury resorts, delicious Mexican food and Caribbean food, just to name a few. There are so many enjoyable things to do in Cancun and the Riviera to make your trip a romantic vacation to remember.
