Look further south than Playa Del Carmen, maybe the Adventure Spa palace. Not sure what the prices are but a friend honeymooned there and had easy access to all the excursions.

We stayed at the Grand Palladium Kantenah in the Riviera Maya (it’s actually a chain of 4 resorts in one – the Kantenah, Colonial, White Sand and Riviera – and you have access to each of the resorts amenities) and we had a FABULOUS time.  Close to everything, not a lot of kids and wasn’t too expensive.  Great food, gorgeous beach, beautiful rooms.  I would recommend the Kantenah since it had the nicest beach and was the quietest out of the 4 resorts.  Check it out!

One of my friends just got back from her honeymoon in Mexico & she said her trip was $2800 (including flight tickets, all-inclusive, & she went on 2 excursions). She went through a travel agent.

Here is the website..


Hope this helps. I’m definitely going to look into it myself.

Secrets Maroma Beach was incredible!  We went for 9 days staying in a Preferred Club for $3900 with everything…could have been much less had we stayed for a shorter period and in non-preferred.  I posted a recap on my blog:

We stayed at Princess Grand Sunset it was amazing $2,600 and close to many activities.

I highly recommend Coba (only ruin pyrimad you can still climb).

Yay!  Date twin 🙂


I am getting married in the Riviera Maya, at the Barcelo Maya Palace.  there are 4 different resorts on the same property and they all are gorgeous. They range from 4 to 5 star.

I can’t link stuff here at work but if you google it, you will find it easily.

@ORella2012:  As far as budget goes, it depends on the time of year, how long you want to stay, & where you’re flying from.  For adults-only resorts, we love the El Dorado, Excellence, Royal & Secrets properties.  You also want to make sure you have easy access to many of the sites that you want to see & decide what other aspects are important to you (e.g., smaller, more intimate property or larger resort).  Depending on your wish list, you should be able to find something.  (Sidenote:  do adults-only whenever possible for a honeymoon.  There is nothing more UN-romantic then a bunch of kids running amok on the beach while you’re trying to relax [or around the pool], climbing on bar stools at a swim-up bar or going bonkers in a restaurant.  Ugh!)

My friend just got back from a stay at Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun and raved about it. Also, I’ve done a lot of comparison shopping online, and I’ve found the best rates at http://www.b2cvacations.com. And finally, I agree that you should choose an adults-only resort – makes a huge difference when you’re on a honeymoon! (Come to think of it, I’m not sure the Now Sapphire is adults-only. Darn.)

My husband and I went to the Excellence Riviera Cancun and I really can’t recommend it highly enough. We’re extremely picky about quality and this place was just absolutely top-notch, had a great time.
