This stretch of Caribbean coastline on Mexico’s northeastern Yucatán Peninsula is known for elegant resorts, long beaches, and an ambiance that is still somewhat undiscovered.

With its close proximity to a number of Mayan ruins, the Riviera Maya is a great spot for a honeymoon. Or maybe to provide your wedding guests with opportunities for exploration either pre- or post-wedding.
