Mexico provides the ideal backdrop for mystery and romance, and for this reason it is not surprising that it is a favorite location of honeymooners from all over the world. Although most newlyweds travel to this intriguing country to experience its numerous outstanding beaches, Mexico also offers a wide variety of interesting activities that many couples find enjoyable. In addition, Mexico is a highly affordable honeymoon destination, which adds immensely to its popularity among newlyweds. With the exception of a brief stormy season, travelers can count on pleasant warm weather and sunny skies almost every time they visit this beautiful part of the world. Those who are searching for the best Mexican resorts for newlyweds may wish to consider the following:

Los Cabos

Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas, located to the south of the California Peninsula, is an engaging Mexican resort town that is fast becoming a favorite honeymoon destination of couples from all walks of life. Resort activities in Cabo San Lucas include sunset cruises, deep-sea fishing, whale watching, golf, horseback riding and guided inland excursions to local attractions. Cabo San Lucas offers the perfect blend of excitement and romance; however, it is wise to avoid traveling to this area of Mexico during spring break, as the city can become quite congested and noisy due to the college-age party crowd that descends on the resort each spring.

The Mexican Gold Coast

The Mexican Gold Coast, featuring resort towns such as Acapulco is also a highly popular honeymoon destination, especially for younger newlyweds who enjoy a vibrant nightlife. As one of the most famous party destinations in the world, Acapulco is an exciting place in which to indulge in a tropical vacation, particularly for those who enjoy dancing, live entertainment, and socializing with other guests. Although known for its boisterous nightlife, honeymooners can still find deserted beaches along the Gold Coast, where a romantic afternoon can be experienced. In addition, it is not hard to escape Acapulco's hustle and bustle with a trip to one of the tiny Mexican villages that dot the landscape. The latter makes an excellent way for couples to enjoy a leisurely look at the culture and life of local residents.

Resorts on the Mexican Riviera

The Mexican Riviera, which stretches from Mazatlan to the Pacific Ocean is a resort location offering an extensive variety of activities, accommodations and amenities to please newlyweds from all around the world. Here, couples can choose to sail and surf the beautiful waters or simply relax with a cocktail at one of the many outdoor beach bars. Great accommodations can be found along the Riviera in resort towns such as Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. Many Canadian travel fans enjoy the mixture of green lush mountains and golden beaches found in this part of Mexico. Friendly people, a relaxed atmosphere, and an ever-increasing awareness of the importance of eco-preservation are all characteristics of the Mexican Riviera.

Mexico City

Mexico City, the country's capital, is the oldest city on the North American continent. Over 18 million people live in this industrial metropolis where plenty of attractions and activities are available for vacationing newlyweds. Previously ignored as a resort town, Mexico City began attracting tourists and honeymooners in the 1970s and is now considered a perfect honeymoon destination for those who enjoy art, history and culture. Unique historical sites and various architectural wonders await couples of all ages, and shopping fans will enjoy Mexico City's world class markets featuring a vast array of clothing, jewelry and authentic Mexican souvenirs.

Ixtapa and Zihuaranejo

The stylish and modern twin cities of Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa were created as resort towns over 25 years ago by Mexico tourism officials. Ixtapa attracts a high volume of honeymooners each year due to its beautiful scenery, clean and modern facilities, and state of the art golf courses. Zihuatanejo draws newlyweds who enjoy vacationing in quaint beach towns where a combination of modern conveniences and old world charm can be found. Zihuatanejo is also an excellent choice for those who enjoy fishing and snorkeling.

Most Mexican hotels and inns employ friendly and attentive staffs, which Canadian travel afficianados find especially welcoming. Almost all newlyweds who choose Mexico as their honeymoon destination will find it is an ideal location in which to experience fun and romance under warm sunny skies.
