In Los Cabos, Play, Play, Play, Playa del Carmen & Tulum, Puerto Vallarta by Suzanne Koch

With thousands of romantic escapes to choose from, these passion-inducing Mexico adventures prove to be some of the best choices on Valentine’s Day and every day.

1. Sip Champagne at One of the “Coolest Restaurants in the World”


An oceanside dinner is the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day, but a dinner at Sunset Da Mona Lisa is a tier above. Situated on the very tip of the Baja Peninsula, Sunset Da Mona Lisa is carved into a cliff with picturesque views of the Arch at Land’s End. Along with boasting an Italian Michelin star trained chef and nine different terrace locations, the restaurant has an oyster and Champagne bar so you can perfectly toast your love under a starry evening sky.

2. Float Through the Riviera Maya


Aboard Ixchel, Banyan Tree Mayakoba’s own private dining boat that takes couples for a romantic cruise along the Riviera Maya. Available for breakfast or dinner, this cruise serves up a cooked-to-order menu to top it off. As if the Riviera Maya wasn’t romantic enough on its own, the resort also offers guests the opportunity to transform their room by adding candlelight, aromatic oils, rose petals and chilled Champagne, because no dinner is complete without a glass of bubbly.

Slip away with your loved one to a secluded and exotic pool of water. Cenotes, meaning sacred well, are the result of collapsing rock that forms natural swimming holes. Crystal clear water, jungle surroundings and tranquil atmospheres are common characteristics of cenotes. For some of the top cenotes in the Yucatan, click here.

4. Rent Elizabeth Taylor’s Former Puerto Vallarta Home


Casa Kimberly, the now-hotel used to be the home of Liz Taylor as gifted to her by Richard Burton, one of Taylor’s many loves. Burton bought the home as a birthday gift for Taylor in 1964 before Taylor sold it in the 90’s. The massive home, now boutique hotel, was picked up by Janice Chatterton years later, who gave the nine-suite hotel a facelift and reopened it as a romantic escape.

5. Stay On Top of Mexico City


Looking for city lights and luxury amenities? St. Regis Mexico City has both and its 3,089-square-foot presidential suite certainly shows it. Panoramic city views overtake this two-bedroom, three-bathroom suite that sits atop this downtown hotel that also boasts its Remede Spa where guests can indulge in free champagne and truffles, and La Table Krug, the French restaurant that serves up an 11-course culinary experience. The hotel even has a helipad on top where the truly elite can land.

6. Feast on Pan Latin Cuisine While Whale-Watching


Sink your teeth into some of the most delicious dishes from Richard Sandoval who is considered the “father of modern Mexican cuisine.” His Cabo restaurant, Toro, is not only filled with sophisticated eats like suviche, steaks, tapas, Latin wines and signature cocktails, but it also features breathtaking views of its Punta Ballena surroundings. In the winter, the restaurant’s patio becomes a local hot spot for whale-watching, making it far more than an excellent restaurant.
