These destinations are perfect for a romantic getaway at any time of the year.
Whether it's Valentine's Day or any time of the year, you can celebrate love and friendship with roses and chocolates, but nothing beats a romantic getaway. To inspire you, here we present some of the most romantic destinations in Mexico.
Although any place can be romantic when you go with the right person, there are Mexican sites that stand out for their atmosphere or their attractions to make any trip an adventure and worthy.
Riviera Maya in Quintana Roo
Nothing like the beauty of the Riviera Maya and the tropical environment to get into a romantic mood. You will also find several hotels and exclusive resorts for couples, where romance and eroticism are breathed in every detail.
You can start the tour in Cancun, enjoying passionate and unbridled nights in their clubs of international statures, such as Coco Bongo or The City. In the day you can stay on its beaches or jump into the calm waters of Isla Mujeres.
Afterward, you can visit Playa del Carmen, where you will find more parties, but also a peaceful atmosphere, hypnotizing beaches and many pieces of jewelry (in case someone wants to give someone another ring). There you can take the ferry to reach the island of Cozumel, famous for its coral reefs that are perfect for snorkeling and diving.
The trip can end in Tulum, with its Mayan ruins crowning the picturesque village with a hippie atmosphere. Or, continue south and get to Bacalar to see the sunset at the edge of the Laguna de los 7 Colores.
León and San Miguel de Allende, in Guanajuato
If it is about romance, the state of Guanajuato is the king, since it has many perfect places for lovers.
The capital of the state, Guanajuato, is a colonial jewel with cobbled streets and narrow alleys, where you crave to steal a kiss from your love.
Among these stands out the famous Callejón del Beso, the legend has it that on the balconies above the third step a pair of lovers were secretly seen before having a tragic end. Now, tradition dictates that couples should kiss on that step or have bad luck.
In the city of León, there is another romantic point: the Bridge of Love. As in Paris, Italy, and Madrid, couples leave locks engraved on the bridge chains and deposit the keys in a container, as a promise that their love will be forever.
A romantic trip to Guanajuato would not be complete without a visit to San Miguel de Allende. This magical town does not have a specific romantic point, because the whole city is romantic! The best thing to do is to stay in a cozy and intimate boutique hotel, one of the many in the city.
The walks through its cobbled streets, filled with colorful architecture, will be unforgettable. If they get tired, they can take a break in any of its picturesque restaurants or cafes, and then visit its art and craft galleries. Here, it makes you want to fall in love! Not for nothing are the favorite destinations for weddings and marriage proposals.
This spectacular colonial city has a complete street dedicated to love. It is the Callejón del Romance, a hidden corner very close to the Aqueduct and the source of Las Tarascas. It is a little street surrounded by pink quarry walls, with fountains and camel flowers, and also has a special place to put your padlock of eternal love.
The walls of this intimate and peaceful corner are adorned with verses from the poem "Romance de mi Ciudad" by Don Lucas Ortiz. It is the perfect place to sit for a while with your partner and enjoy its picturesque atmosphere or drink something in the cafes and bars that are there.
Of course, the alley is not the only place to romance. They can take their love to such beautiful places as the Garden of Roses, where several local artists meet, the Calzada Fran Antonio de San Miguel or the Ex Convento del Carmen, all with some legend of impossible love that is worth listening to.
Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco
Considered "The Most Romantic Destination in Mexico", this corner of the Mexican coast has everything to fall in love with. Natural beauties, cobblestone streets, dreamy sunsets, and special services for couples. So anyone lets himself be enveloped by love.
The Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta or "Old Vallarta", has a bohemian and colonial air that transports you to the past. Couples can spend days on the beach and evenings touring restaurants, galleries, shops, and local attractions. Nothing like a cultural walk along the boardwalk and its cobbled streets to relive romance.
Los Cabos, Baja California Sur
Very close to 'El Arco', there is a beautiful beach whose name says it all: Playa del Amor. It is said that its name comes from the waters of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. Others say that it is because of an old love story.
Beyond the origin of its name, the truth is that it is a fascinating scenario to spend a couple of moments: crystal clear waters, brightly colored fish and unforgettable sunsets with 'El Arco' in the background.
