Going on vacation with your special someone is always super fun and exciting! Add in a proposal and you’ve got yourself a recipe for potentially one of the most magical vacations of your life.

You’ve picked your perfect person, an incredibly beautiful and romantic vacation destination and now all you need is a spot to ‘pop that big question’ – Here are 6 picture perfect proposal spots in the Mexican Caribbean to consider. 

Isla Blanca

Isla Blanca is a little hidden gem of Cancun on a virtually untouched peninsula. It is a spot that locals like to get away from the typical hustle and bustle of the tourism areas of Cancun, while still being able to soak up the magic that Cancun is famous for. Grab a picnic, your rental car (A taxi here will be quite costly and there is no guarantee of finding one for the way back) and start driving north of Cancun towards Punta Sam. Taking the Avenida Bonampak is the most direct route however, the López Portillo will also get you there. The road up to the beach is paved most of the way and then very quickly turns into a sandy road –  once you hit the sand you’re no more than 10 minutes away from the hidden beach. There aren’t any big hotels or very many amenities at all out here. Just you, your honey, the pristine white sand beach and perhaps a couple windsurfers. 

Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres is getting more and more popular as time goes on. This delightful little island is only a 20-minute ferry ride from Cancun and has some breathtaking beaches and backdrops to get photos of your special moments! The laid back and somewhat sleepy vibes really sets the tone to slow it down, be in the present moment and to feel all the love and beauty around you. Here are 6 charming local accommodations if you feel like making a night out of your visit to the island.

Playa del Carmen

For many, Playa del Carmen defines dreamy! The mind-blowing turquoise waters, the pristine beaches and those laid back bohemian vibes is the perfect combo to lose track of time in paradise with your lover. There are endless options for the perfect beach proposal spot or for a post dinner dip onto one knee. This place surely won’t disappoint! Check out these Playa del Carmen hidden gems.


Tulum is home to some of the most epic and romantic beaches and resorts in the Mexican Caribbean – it is absolutely a proposal spot that will earn you extra brownie points! This exotic destination is known for the magical vibes that it brings to the table which melts your stress away. Book in at one of these premier spa resorts or even switch it up with a glamping experience of a lifetime for you and your hopefully soon to be husband or wife! 


Cancun is full of incredible spots to ask your special someone to spend forever with you. Finding a spot that’s private, quiet and intimate can be a little challenging but if you keep an open mind and potentially ask for some local assistance – you’re bound to find the perfect spot. Rent a motorbike and go for a drive until somewhere calls out to you, make some dinner reservations with a few extra requests, or perhaps even cater your special event at a private luxury Cancun Airbnb. The options are endless!

Your Hotels Beach

You might be pleasantly surprised just how much your hotel or resort is willing to help you make this special moment, extra special for you and your love! Don’t hesitate to ask for a hand with setting up a private dinner, champagne or the perfect setting to pop your question! 

The mix of palm trees swaying in the warm Caribbean breeze, the soft sandy beaches, the vibrant turquoise blue waters and the type of sunsets that stop you in your tracks - makes the Mexican Caribbean one of the most naturally romantic places in the world.
