Honeymoon Ideas: Riviera Maya

So, we did it! We finally decided on a honeymoon destination. In August, the fiance husband and I will be heading for six days and seven nights of total relaxation in the Riviera Maya. With the help of our travel agent (the first time we ever worked with one and now I'm totally obsessed), we booked the five-star, all-inclusive Excellence Playa Mujeres for a killer rate.

Ultimately, when we really honed in on our budget and wants, our two top destinations were the Riviera Maya and Jamaica. An easier flight path, stellar resort ratings, and a variety of spectacular perks as an added-value (a private dinner on the beach!) were what sold us on Excellence Playa Mujeres.

 We plan on spending the majority of time at the resort. Specifically, here:

But we do want to break away for a bit to see the Mayan ruins (probably Tulum since it's our first time) and spend a day on Isla Mujeres. A trip to the Mexican island was already on our list and then I read this article on and it made me even more excited!

So, there we have it. Many thanks to all of you for your recommendations! Researching the list of romantic and exotic honeymoon destinations that you sent our way was such a treat. I'll be sure to tell you all about our experience at Excellence Playa Mujeres.
