Are you celebrating your honeymoon or just looking for a romantic escape with your partner? For some couples, it’s all about relaxing on a beach, sunset strolls down the shore, while others prefer a new adventure in an exciting, fast-paced destination. Whatever your travel style, Cancun has it all. Here’s a list of seven experiences for a romantic vacation in Cancun.  

Escape to a Caribbean Island

When planning your romantic vacation, you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and enjoy a peaceful environment. What better way than staying on an island near Cancun, the perfect destination to connect with each other and be surrounded by the turquoise blue of the sea and appreciate the country’s natural beauty. You can venture to one of the nearby Caribbean islands: Isla Mujeres, Cozumel, and Holbox Island; each is special and has something for everyone.  

Explore Rio Secreto

Rio Secreto in Playa del Carmen is one of the most beautiful and spectacular destinations you can imagine in Mexican territory. Listed as one of Mexico and America’s best “green” tourism experiences, you will see beautiful sets of rock formations, such as columns, stalactites, and stalagmites, and wonder how these structures took shape throughout millions of years. Nature lovers can enjoy it regardless of rain, sunshine, or if it’s day or night. Check its website for more information.  

Go on an Underwater Expedition

The Mexican Caribbean is one of the world’s best diving and snorkeling paradises for its large Mesoamerican reef, the second largest in the world. Its fauna is rich in crustaceans, rays, snails, seahorses, sharks, and a variety of multicolored fish. One of the best spots for snorkeling in the Cancun hotel zone is Punta Nizuc, the southernmost point of the hotel zone. If you want to add more adventure to your trip, include a speedboat and snorkeling tour.  

Enjoy a Romantic Dinner

If you want to discover new and surprising gastronomic experiences, some resorts stand out for their culinary venues, offering luxury and exclusive accommodation and an incomparable delight of the senses. The all-inclusive Grand Velas, Xcaret Arte, and Live Aqua Beach Resort have excellent restaurants. If you’re staying on other resorts, book a reservation for two at Cancun’s top restaurants for 2022: Puerto Madero, Benazuza, Harry’s Grill, or Divina Carne Brazilian Steakhouse.  

Watch the Sunset Over the Lagoon

Any romantic getaway cannot be complete without witnessing an amazing sunset. Cancun, and the Mexican Caribbean, is a privileged place where you can admire the spectacular sunset from any outdoor terrace or beach every afternoon, which makes it a unique experience. Enjoy your day in the sun and make time to watch a romantic sunset with your partner; it will be an unforgettable moment.  

Visit an Incredible Cenote

The cenotes, caverns, and underground caves are among the great attractions of the Mayan Riviera. From the thousands of cenotes, there are many top recommendations. Dos Ojos is a majestic cenote located between Tulum and Playa del Carmen and comprises a cave and two springs or water sources. Chaak Tun is near Playa del Carmen; s a beautiful place, formed by two caverns, one small and illuminated with artificial light and another more prominent, with an opening that lets sunlight in. Right in the middle of the second cavern, there’s a tree, and when the sun seeps through, it illuminates the branches, offering a beautiful natural spectacle. Aktun Chen is 27 miles from Playa del Carmen. The site has a cavern that can be toured to admire the impressive vaults and the colorful rock formations between the floor and the ceiling.
