Cancun / Riviera Maya

by Adrienne Sasson last updated on 07/25/2008 Disclaimer

This area of Mexico is a culture treasure trove of ancient Aztec history mixed with some of the best resorts and beaches in the world. Divers and snorkeling buffs can appreciate the famed coral reefs and underground caves (cenotes).

Honeymooners can elect for lazy days by meandering pools or by the beach . . . or exciting excursions to ancient sites such as Chichen Itza and Tulum. For nature lovers, Xel Ha and lagoon jungle safaris on jet skis cannot be missed. Spas and golf are also great choices.

Nightlife and shopping in the Cancun area and Playa del Carmen is plentiful. The choices are yours.

Where to stay?? In the past few years, my list has grown. The decisions are plenty, depending upon your personality and which amenities you would prefer. On my "A" list:

Le Blanc Resort and Spa - the queen of chic on the famous Cancun Hotel strip. This five star plus resort leaves no pampering amenity unturned. For the best of luxury and proximity to the Cancun Hotel strip this is your choice.

Sun Palace Resort - near the Cancun Hotel Strip it’s for those who want the best in beaches and fun on their honeymoon. They also include the famous Passport Program which includes various excursions in Cancun and the surrounding area.

Excellence Playa Mujeres - one of Cancun's most secluded resorts. This resort on the tip of the peninsula is located on 2 miles of powdery white beaches. Also, you will find an inland marina and world class spa here.

El Dorado Royale - in the Riviera Maya, named after the legendary kingdom of El Dorado (city of the Golden King) will make you feel as if you are golden. You will be treated like royalty on your honeymoon. El Dorado Royale has received accolades for their gourmet cuisine. Bask in the sun on the terrace of your swimup casita during the day and at night dance under the stars. Also, check out the El Dorado Seaside and new El Dorado Maroma.

Secrets Resorts- It's not a secret anymore...the resorts that is. Your honeymoon can be a well kept secret at one of the 3, yes 3 Secret Resorts. Secrets Maroma and Secrets Siversands now join their sister, Secrets Capri in the Riviera Maya region. Discover romance in the Unlimited-Luxury setting of these resorts.

Excellence Riviera Maya is not to be outdone by her sister resort in Playa Mujeres. Set along a beautiful beach with pool to match, this is definitely a resort to consider for your honeymoon!

Aventura Spa Palace - Like the Sun Palace it offers the Passport Program. This resort’s features one of the largest spas in the region. Every room includes a jacuzzi tub for 2 and a hammock on the balcony or terrace. For those want the ultimate swimming pool, this is the place. Also, stroll through acres of manicured gardens and get lost in your honeymoon dreams.

Yes, one too many choices for your honeymoon. Call me to discuss all of the resort choices so you can decide which one matches your honeymoon dream.
