When honeymooning in Mexico south of the border, expect very, very leisurely days; your most important decision will probably be whether to lounge by the pool or the ocean. A Mexican honeymoon is the perfect post-wedding stress buster. Where you go will largely depend on where you’re coming from: Pacific Coast retreats in Los Cabos, Punta Mita, and Baja tend to be easier for couples based on the West Coast or in Southwestern states like Texas, while East Coasters will find it a quick and easy getting to the Caribbean-fronting Riviera Maya, home to popular towns like Tulum, Playa del Carmen, and Merida. Regardless the destination, be sure to pack your best bikinis and always say sí when you’re offered another margarita.

Palafitos, By Dorado Resorts
Palafitos overwater bungalows are Mexico´s only living quarters over water and are situated on one of Mexico´s most beautifully pristine beaches, Maroma Beach. Honeymooners can be forgiven in thinking that they have arrived in Bora Bora. El Dorado Maroma´s Palafitos by contrast, don´t require the long hop and aitaxi to arrive at this remarkable experience.
The Palafito suites are beautiful inside. The rooms have many glass floor ‘windows’ to see the ocean. Here you will get to see fish all the time and the water is so clear, you can see the sand bottom. Every fine detail has been meticulously considered and comes included. Everything from gowns, slippers, scale (ponder), shaving kit and a couple of other nice things. The L’Occitane products provided are an added touch of class.
The Gourmet Inclusive Food Concept by Karisma In every restaurant is delicious and the presentation is five star. The menu is terrific with dishes that are imaginatively prepared and plated beautifully. The Gourmet Inclusive® concept means that portion sizes at Palafitos are small, which allows tasting several different courses without feeling overly full. Typical favorites are the beef carpaccio and Chilean sea bass. For entertainment there is live music every night, adding to the ambiance.
The bungalows themselves are well planned, with plenty of storage space, a fantastic inside shower (the rain shower is possibly the best shower ever). There is also an outdoor “romantic” shower in each bungalow, Aguas del Amor®. Try floating in the ocean off your own private dock. The plunge pool on the bungalow’s deck exquisite. Every suite has a large two-person jacuzzi. The beds are first-class, and the linens are of the highest quality too.
