Private Journey

 

Looking for a tropical honeymoon with plenty of beach time to relax and the minimum of time spent travelling, but with plenty of variety?  Mexico is a huge country and it takes a big commitment to get the measure of it on one holiday, so we have picked out the area – the Yucatán peninsula in the south - we think would be the most appealing to honeymooners.

It is here that vestiges of the Mayan civilisation loom out of the undergrowth at every turn. Sites replete with temples and pyramids festooned with sacred carvings were, once abandoned, swallowed up by a rapacious jungle but are now gradually being revealed. The best known sites, Chichén Itzá, Uxmal and Tulum are easily accessible and have been spruced up for visitors. This holiday takes you to all of them at a relaxed pace, giving you plenty of time to wander around and soak up the atmosphere, possibly at dawn or sunset. 

The Riviera Maya spans the peninsula’s soft-sand Caribbean coast. At both of your beach-hotel bases, tranquil Tulum village and Playa del Carmen (a pleasant holiday resort) there is plenty of free time to laze on the beach, play water-sports or choose more wide-ranging optional adventures. One of the best is included: the coastal mangrove-draped marshes at Sian Ka’an, which host a biosphere reserve heaving with wildlife.
