Most Romantic Spots In The Mexican Caribbean
Planning a unique proposal is easy in the Mexican Caribbean – from underwater proposals to a cenote ceremony, the region’s varied, tropical landscape hosts a wealth of stunning romantic settings to pop the question.
Playa Del Carmen
Over 6,000 cenotes exist throughout Riviera Maya, comprising the world’s largest subterranean river system: the Grand Mayan Aquifer. With their stunning depth, cool waters, and magical atmosphere, these historic natural caves and pools have long been considered sacred spaces, and can now be the site for a proposal like no other. Playa del Carmen’s Bushman Photography offers a cenote package that begins with a shaman ceremony in a temazcal – where couples will experience renewal and transformation in this ancient Mayan sweat lodge – before heading to a picturesque cenote, where a photographer will be on hand to capture every emotional moment.
Atlantis Submarines also caters to couples craving adventure with expeditions to Cozumel’s Chankanaab Reef, the second largest coral reef in the world, where a scuba diver will be waiting with a sign marked “will you marry me?” for a one-of-a-kind way to pop the question. Expeditions can be paired with unique tours, like a chocolate tasting workshop or a visit to a beach club. Also emblematic and historic to the Mexican Caribbean are the region’s many Mayan archaeological sites. With dozens of these stunning spots across the region, Del Sol Photography can recommend the perfect time and place for a destination proposal, such as sunset at Punta Sur in Isla Mujeres.
Hun Tulum's The Hand
The treetops of the Mexican Caribbean jungle are another out-of-the-box setting for an unforgettable proposal. At Hun Tulum, guests can visit The Hand, the hotel’s incredible hand-shaped structure that provides a viewpoint to the resort’s green surroundings. Hun Tulum offers an exclusive proposal package for The Hand, where couples will walk a candle path adorned with rose petals before enjoying a four-course private dinner and bottle of champagne. A photographer or mariachi can also be added to the two-hour experience.
The rich landscapes, stunning hotel offerings, and classic appeal of the Mexican Caribbean make the region a dream destination for the proposal of a lifetime.
