The Yucatan Peninsula is a honeymoon destination that ticks all the boxes. The state has the perfect blend of culture and beach life, from its lush jungle hideaways and the Mayan ruins to the beautiful beaches and laid-back island retreats.

After all the wedmin and excitement of the big day, we're pretty sure you'll be in need of a little R&R. Head to the coastline of Riveria Maya, where you can unwind and while away blissful days on pure white-sand beaches gazing across calm blue waters.

If you're itching for a little more action visit the ancient Mayan ruins such as Chichen Itza or Tulum with its sweeping views over the ocean. If adventure is more your thing, explore the stunning underground cenotes and their crystalline waters on a diving or snorkelling trip. Jungle picnics and swims in the refreshing natural pools in between make this an extra romantic experience.

For a variation of coast and culture we recommend spending a few days inland at a typical Mexican hacienda. Here you can immerse yourselves in true Mexican life exploring the countryside, visiting authentic Mexican villages and Mayan ruins, soaking up the local culture.
