If you decide to spend your honeymoon in Mexico, choose a particular place to visit. In larger cities, you will find all the conveniences of modern life, including airports, restaurants, museums, lodging, shopping, and nightclubs. In the towns and villages, there are many local artisans selling their wares and beautiful examples of historical architecture.
Mexico is known for its tropical rainforests and beaches. Thousands of miles of beautiful beaches line Mexico's Pacific coast. The Mexican Riviera stretches from Mazatlan to Acapulco, and is a very popular tourist and honeymoon destination.
Acapulco's beaches offer crystal blue waters, fine dining and luxury resorts. Year-round balmy weather makes this a great place for water sports including deep-sea fishing and scuba diving, golf and tennis. Music, entertainment and nightlife are always available, or enjoy a relaxing, secluded environment, away from the crowds.
Mazatlan, a unique seaport with a bustling marketplace, offers fresh seafood, water sports and long, tropical beaches for romantic strolls at sunset. If you love the nightlife, Mazatlan also boasts a variety of clubs, discotheques, bars and authentic Mariachi bands for your enjoyment.
On the Caribbean, or eastern coast of Mexico, you can enjoy the city of Cancun. Parasailing is a wonderful way to spend the day here, and the nightlife is amazing. Whether you visit the Mayan archeological sites or shop in traditional villages, Cancun is the perfect romantic, Mexican getaway for honeymooners.
For those who don't care for the beach or water sports, Mexico City is a true cultural experience. Magnificent skyscrapers mix with colonial architecture, with museums and traditional entertainment all available. Take a drive outside Mexico City and enjoy the natural beauty of Mexico's national parks and ecological reserves.
To travel in Mexico the following identification is needed:
- Photo identification such as a driver's license.
- Proof of citizenship such as a passport or birth certificate with a raised seal.
- Tourist card; available free of charge at airline check-in.
Brides will have an easier time if tickets are issued in their maiden name, or match their documents. For U.S. airport security purposes, the name on your driver's license and the name on your ticket must match.
In Mexico, as with other travel designations, there is a high and low season. Generally, the low seasons include February, part of April, mid-May to mid-July, August and October. Check with your travel agent to get exact dates, and take advantage of them. Traveling during these somewhat arbitrary times can save you a lot of money, and there will be fewer tourists traveling at the same time.
From Mayan ruins hidden in the tropical jungle to magnificent stretches of pristine beaches, the romantic charms of the Mexico honeymoon beckon you. Whether you are looking for seclusion or excitement, Mexico will provide any couple with the honeymoon of a lifetime.
