‘Mooning in Mexico & Latin America

Casa Palopo, Guatamala.
Relaxation leads to romance at Casa Palopo Atitlan, Guatemala.

Whether they choose a beach vacation or a cultural exploration, newlyweds will fall in love with their surroundings as they celebrate their honeymoon in Mexico or Latin America.

Viceroy Riviera Maya—Mexico
On the beach just outside of Playa del Carmen, you’ll find Viceroy Riviera Maya, a property featuring 41 villas spread over seven miles of private white sand beach. Here, couples enjoy top-end service, upscale cuisine, and the ultimate in privacy—Viceroy never disappoints. Adventure-seekers can enjoy diving, horseback riding, sailing, boating, jungle tours and sky diving, or those happy to lounge lazily can soak up the sun, cocktail in hand, at their own private pool.

Newlyweds might look into the Timeless Honeymoon package, providing accommodations in a Luxury Villa with private pool; fresh flowers upon arrival; one Asparalove massage per couple in a spa suite; one private, candlelit dinner in the villa with a bottle of Moet Chandon; roundtrip airport transfers and daily breakfast. The package can be added to their free Honeymoon Registry—after they set it up, of course—allowing family and friends the option to contribute to your client’s Timeless Honeymoon. The Timeless Honeymoon package is valid for stays of four nights or longer. For more information, visit viceroyhotelsandresorts.com.

United Vacations—Mexico & Costa Rica
Providing spectacular destinations with packaged airfare, United Vacations, a division of United Airlines, will have your clients’ heads in the clouds as they jet off on their honeymoon. They offer super-easy planning tools, low airfares and the ability to custom-design your clients’ vacation, allowing the lovebirds time to do as much, or as little, as they desire.

A favorite property featured by United Airlines is Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort & Spa  in Los Cabos, Mexico. This all-inclusive, adults-only property, described as “an enchanting oasis of natural beauty and relaxation, located on a 2.5-mile stretch of pristine white beach,” promises serenity. Honeymooners staying at least four nights here will enjoy complimentary amenities including a bottle of domestic champagne, a fruit basket, 15 percent discount on a candlelit beach dinner for two, and a $50 spa credit per room.

Or if the natural beauty of Costa Rica is calling, consider The Springs Resort & Spa in Arenal—now famous for the filming of TV’s “The Bachelor.” Featuring 18 hot spring pools, an onsite wildlife rescue preserve and plenty of opportunities for hiking, active lovebirds will truly savor their surroundings. When they arrive, they’ll be greeted by a fresh cut tropical flower bouquet and fruit basket in their room, and for one romantic evening during their stay, honeymooners will enjoy a room set-up with flower petals, bubble bath whirlpool, candles, romantic music and a bottle of wine. Throughout, they’ll have access to a 50 percent discount on spa packages, to be sure they return home relaxed.
