From sexy boutique hotels to pristine white sand beaches, there are endless reasons why Mexico should be your next romantic getaway. Here are our top 7.
In Tulum, you’ll find quiet, intimate, Crusoe-like escapes that’ll make you feel like you’re on your own private Caribbean island. Hole up at one of Casa Violeta’s cozy beachfront bungalows nestled in the jungle, just steps from your own stretch of crystal clear ocean.
2: Sophisticated cuisine
You might think Mexican food is all tacos, burritos, and enchiladas—and while there’s nothing wrong with any of these, the cuisine south of the border has grown increasingly diverse, cosmopolitan, and totally date-worthy. Have a romantic dinner at Pujol in Mexico City, which offers innovative modern twists to traditional Mexican fare, or Mar Plata in San Pancho, which offers exciting fusion cuisine in a rustic, intimate setting.
3: Sexy resorts
Celebrities are often spotted holidaying in Mexico, and it’s no wonder: Luxe resorts like the One & Only Palmilla—reportedly Jennifer Aniston’s favorite—offer the ease and tranquility of private island living, with all the luxe services and amenities of a five-star hotel. With their gorgeous spas and beautiful beachfront locations, The Four Seasons Punta Mita and the Imanta Resort are equally perfect for lighting or rekindling the flame.
4: World-class art
The gorgeous, gallery-studded streets of Mexico City are great for romance. Neighborhoods like Roma and Condesa are home to small, sexy contemporary art museums perfect for exploring hand-in-hand. For easy access, set up shop at the sleek Condesa DF, close to the Galeria O.M.R., which focuses on the work of emerging Mexican artists.
5: Natural beauty
From the lush rainforests on Mexico’s Pacific side, to the impossibly blue waters of the Mayan Riviera, you’ll find no better backdrop for falling in love.
Skip the dive bars and head to one of the intimate, classy mezcalerias that have opened up all over Mexico City. Sip on spirits made by small local producers or on pretty, artfully-crafted mezcal-based cocktails. Head to Corazón de Maguey, in the heart of Coyoacán, or La Botica, which supports only small producers from marginalized parts of the country, for a low-key, romantic nightcap.
The long, dramatic sunsets in the Mayan Riviera are best enjoyed on the ocean, so hire a board from Puerto Vallarta Surfing, spend a day playing in the waves, and watch the sun sink slowly into the horizon beyond.
