Top 5 Most Romantic Places in Mexico for a Couple’s Getaway| 11 May, 2021
People looking for love in later life can find it difficult to know where to start with online dating, especially if they have recently come out of a marriage or long term relationship. If you’re a mature person looking for love, there is more choice than ever before when it comes to how and where to meet people with different matchmaking services and social media outlets. When you sign up to a dating website to find a potential partner, it can be easy to connect with someone compatible. These outlets provide algorithms designed to provide matches based on similar interests stated during the registration process. Once you meet someone you share common ground with on a dating site for mature people, you can exchange messages, eventually planning your first couple’s getaway. If you’re almost at this stage, of all the possible destinations we could recommend, one of the most romantic is Mexico. Here are five places you and your new partner must visit.
The Riviera Maya is a wonderfully picturesque tropical paradise that will put both of you in a romantic frame of mind when you first touch down in Mexico. During the day, you can stroll along sun-baked beaches, or take a dip in Caribbean waters, surrounded by other romantically inclined couples. Why not complete the day by popping over to Cancun, where you can enjoy a fantastically vibrant night out as clubs like Coco Bongo burst into life?
Morelia is another eye-catching city dating back to colonial times and is especially famous for having an entire street where love is celebrated. Located close to a large aqueduct that towers above the buildings, the Callejón del Romance will appeal to your romantic side. As you walk hand-in-hand, check out the beautiful pink walls, providing the ideal backdrop to bubbling fountains, and splendid flower displays. Examples of romantic poems has been affixed to the walls, courtesy of the poet Don Lucas Ortiz, and there are many cafes or bars where you can watch the world go by, or gaze into each other’s eyes.
Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco
Another candidate for the title of Mexico’s most romantic destination, Puerto Vallarta languishes on Mexico’s Pacific coast. A picture postcard setting, it is characterized by beautiful cobbled streets and vantage points where you can watch the sun sinking into azure seas. The old part of the city has a distinctly bohemian atmosphere that can invoke images of historic times when the Spanish first conquered this area, before the colonists and subsequent immigrants integrated with the local population to form the fantastic melting pot of citizens that persists to this day. Take a stroll along the boardwalk and experience the city coming to life at nighttime, when there is music and dancing in the air.
A mere 40 minutes away from Mexico City, you will come across a tranquil area known as Xochimilco, originally built by the Aztecs as a water irrigation system, consisting of interlinked canals and lakes. This is another location that is overflowing with history, reflecting interesting and diverse cultural influences. The trajineras are gondola-style boats painted in fetching colors, reminiscent of a neon-colored version of Venice! Boarding one of these vessels will enable you and your significant other to cruise across languid waterways, visiting islands against the background of colorful native birds.
A truly romantic setting for the final destination of your Mexican getaway, Coyoacán lies at the historic heart of the capital. Wandering through the streets and plazas here is a bit like stepping back in time, as much of the architecture dates back to the era when the Spaniards first colonized this land in the 16th century. Strolling around these narrow walkways and picturesque squares will provide you and your partner ample opportunities for memorable photoshoots. This is an area that is also steeped in history, and it has been home to many prominent people over the years, including the artist Frida Kahlo, and the Soviet exile Leon Trotsky.
