The Riviera Maya has several options for resorts ranging from the 2,000 room Moon Palace to the small 130 room El Dorado Seaside Suites. There are eco-lodges (no electricity), all inclusives, European plans, and even resorts that include all of your tours. Choosing the correct resort means knowing what is important for your honeymoon vacation. Do you want to spend your days enjoying a wide, white sand beach just looking at the beautiful Caribbean water or do you want to hike through the Mayan ruins and learn all about an ancient culture? These are some of the questions I will ask you when I help you determine just the right place for that romantic getaway.

One of my favorite resorts in the Riviera Maya is the El Dorado Seaside Suites. Located very far south in the Riviera Maya it is closer to Puerto Aventuras in Kantenah. The beach is beautiful, small, with white sand. The water is aqua colored and great for snorkeling. The closer you get to Akumal the more reef you find in the water. I caution my clients to be sure and take water socks with them when traveling to these southern resorts. Although this reef may be hard on the feet, it is fantastic for your vision as you will see more colorful fish than anywhere else.

The El Dorado Seaside Suites is an adults only resort. It is about 1 hour from the Cancun airport. Pay the extra fee to get the non-stop transfer service as there are many resorts between this one and the airport.

This resort embodies barefoot elegance for the carefree and relaxed. All rooms are junior suites with Jacuzzi tubs. Flower petals floating on a bubble bath greet you on your first night. Four poster beds draped with soft fabric enhance the romantic mood. Some ground floor rooms have a swim up pool that culminate at the end of the building with a swim up bar. 24 hour room service is available.

This property has that boutique-hotel atmosphere with a creative a la carte cuisine at 4 restaurants. Non-motorized sports such as paddleboats, kayak and snorkeling gear are included in your room rate. Other activities are available such as beach volleyball, aquaerobics, salsa lessons and aerobics.

No trip to the Riviera Maya would be complete without a visit to the Mayan ruins. Explore the amazing views of Tulum, the only Mayan fortress resort built by the sea and used by the Mayans as their port of entry for Caribbean goods. Combine your visit with a trip to Xel-Há, a place where the best of the Mexican Caribbean nature comes together. The world's most spectacular aquarium invites you to embark on an aquatic adventure. Explore creeks, lagoons, natural wells and ancient caves fed by subterranean rivers flowing to Mexico's beautiful Caribbean Sea. Walk through its jungle and discover plenty of spots to spoil each other.

On Mexico's Turquoise Coast, Maroma Beach feels like it's like a million miles away, but is actually just 35 miles south of Cancun on what has become known as the Mayan Riviera. Also rated one of the Travel Channel's "Best Beaches," its sand is the color of powdered sugar and its clear waters the temperature of a warm bath. On the slight chance you'll want to do anything but just melt into the sand, you can snorkel, jet ski, drive ATVs, or go deep sea fishing. This is an excellent location for a wedding too. It has food and drink facilities along with showers and lockers right on property.
