Where Should I Honeymoon in Mexico?
It’s hard to go wrong when you choose a honeymoon location in Mexico, but we’ve made a list of some of our favorites to get you started. Check out some of the best honeymoon ideas in Mexico below before finalizing your travel plans.
Puerto Vallarta is a hub of activity for travelers, which means you can do just about anything or relax on the beach and do nothing at all. Swim with dolphins, go whale watching (in the winter), take a sunset cruise, visit ancient Mayan ruins, or zipline through the jungle.
Las Caletas is a private beach which is accessible only by boat, ensuring maximum privacy and relaxation. This secluded beach hideaway lies along at the base of the Sierra Madre mountains, south to Puerto Vallarta.

You can lounge in the shade in a hammock strung between two palm trees, hike into the jungle and look for monkeys and parrots, or participate in a number of classes and activities, such as cooking or mezcal tasting. You can also enjoy water activities like snorkeling, kayaking, or paddleboarding.
Las Caletas is also the perfect location for a destination wedding. Imagine saying your vows with your toes in the sand as the sun sets behind you, followed by gourmet dining and dancing. You’ll also enjoy a private catamaran, personal wedding coordinator, and a gorgeous hospitality suite to get ready and share some time with your closest friends and family members prior to the ceremony.
