If you are looking for adventure, culture and a romantic setting for Valentine’s Day this year, then Mexico could be just what you are seeking. Valentine’s Day in Mexico is a wonderful way to show that special person that you love them. Top of the list for Mexican destinations for Valentine’s are those beach resorts on the stunning sunny coastline of Mexico. Destinations such as Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, the Islands of Loreto and Cancun are certainly among the most romantic places you could choose in Mexico for a Valentine’s getaway.
Here you will see what each of these places has to offer Valentine’s lovers:
Cabo San Lucas
One of the reasons that Cabo San Lucas is such as romantic choice for Valentine’s Day in Mexico is that February is teeming with whales. Humpback whales, and sometimes killer whales, are common from December through March, with February being one of the best months for multiple sightings. A romantic whale watching tour is a great choice for Valentine’s Day in Cabo San Lucas.
Puerto Vallarta is romantic any time of the year. Sunsets over the Pacific Ocean are guaranteed from Banderas Bay and a romantic dinner or cocktail for two on the beach will make the perfect Valentine’s setting. Puerto Vallarta is renowned for its gourmet cuisine, listed second only to Mexico City for gastronomy.
Cancun and Riviera Maya
You simply can’t beat the colors in Cancun’s Caribbean setting. Turquoise, translucent sea, white sands, palm trees and great hotels make Cancun a place for Valentine’s lovers to return year after year. There are some unique activities you can undertake on Valentine’s Day too, like a visit to a cenote (freshwater sinkholes) where you can snorkel, swim or dive. Most cenotes are surrounded by jungle, which gives your Valentines’ day out a fairytale atmosphere.
The Islands of Loreto
The Islands of Loreto make an idyllic Valentine’s treat. It is a fabulous Valentine’s destination for snorkeling and diving in the protected biosphere that surrounds the Islands of Loreto. The Sea of Cortez becomes a natural aquarium while the town center of Loreto is a romantic gem.
