Enjoy a Romantic Honeymoon at a Playa Palms Beach Hotel
A boutique beach hotel allows newlywed couples a little more privacy and seclusion than many of their resort-style counterparts. We invite you to check out the range of amenities Playa Palms Hotel offers our newlywed and honeymooning guests. In the meantime, here are some tips for planning a honeymoon in Playa del Carmen.
Do your homework. If you’re traveling to another country, you will need a passport at the very least. But did you know some countries require your passport be at least 6-months old? Does the country require you to be vaccinated? Research beforehand so you aren’t forced to cancel at the last minute.
Balance travel and vacation time. Fiji, Tahiti, the Maldives – all are amazing honeymoon destinations, but all require a hefty hunk of cash and more than a day’s worth of travel to get there and back. If you only have a week or two for your honeymoon, make sure to balance travel time and leisure time, accommodating for jet lag, so you feel like you’re experiencing a luxuriously long getaway.
Work with a travel agent. Online vacation planning is not as cheap and easy as it sounds. You can spend hours trying to find the best flight(s) and prices, accommodation rates, ideal things to do and see, etc., only to wind up frustrated and without any reservations to speak of. Let an experienced agent do the work for you, and you’ll wind up saving money due to their partnerships, association and wholesale discount rates.

February, the month of love! And if you happen to spend Valentine’s Day in Playa del Carmen, there are a many ways you can spoil your loved one:
1 Watch the sunrise
2 Horseback riding at the beach
Is there anything more cliché and romantic than riding a horse at the beach? And Valentine’s Day is the perfect day for such a corny adventure. We suggest Punta Venado, which is a gorgeous beach about 16 km / 10 mi south of PLaya del Carmen.
Temazcal, the Pre-Hispanic version of a sauna is the most relaxing and healing experience. There is a special couple’s ceremony, guided by a Mayan shaman, to relax your soul and cleanse your body. Sweat it out, to the sound of chanting and the fragrance of herbs.
4 Lobster dinner on a Spanish Galleon
It can’t possibly get more romantic. Have a special evening on the Columbus, out in the Lagoon Nichupté. You can either see the sunset or eat in the soft glow of the moon and the stars above you while enjoying the beautiful view of Cancun’s coast in front of you.
A very Mexican romance. Enjoy a variety of Mexican dishes on a wooden, gondola-style boat, the so-called trajinera. Expect a fun ambiance with delicious food, drinks, and Mariachi music.
Are you spending Valentine’s Day with your loved one in Playa del Carmen? Here are some romantic ideas on what to do on this special day!
Start the day with French breakfast
Paris, not Playa del Carmen is the city of love. So get your piece of Paris in Playa del Carmen, more precisely at Chez Celine. Sitting on the patio of this cozy French restaurant will make you feel just as in a street cafe in Paris. In case you can’t get a table, make sure you buy one of their delicious french pastries to go!
The island of passion
Just off Cozumel’s shores lies Isla de la Pasión. The small island is the perfect romantic getaway. The Maya considered it a sacred place that is blessed with fertility and went there to worship Ixchel, the goddess of love, It’s said that if a wedding ceremony is celebrated on the island, the marriage will hold for all eternity. True or not, it’s white sandy beaches are a beautiful place to relax and enjoy your time together.
Dining at a magical place
Have you ever eaten in a natural cavern, surrounded by stalactites and stalagmites? That’s how you dine at the famous Alux Restaurante & Lounge. It sure is a magical experience, having dinner at an underground cenote. For the extra romance, reserve a table in one of the private vaults, you can even hire a violinist! Or just try an exotic Mayan cocktail at the Bar Lounge.
You are single or not spending this Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart? Then show love to the most important person in your life – yourself! Treat yourself to a spa day, for example at the Maya Spa just around the corner of Hotel Playa Palms.
