Walks along endless, paradise-like white sandy beaches between tall palm trees. Listening to the sound of the sea while you hold the hand of your loved one and simply enjoying the moment with beautiful sunsets: The Riviera Maya on the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico is certainly one of the most romantic places to spend a vacation as a couple or even a honeymoon. So it’s no wonder that we chose the Riviera Maya and the 5-star hotel TUI BLUE El Dorado Seaside Suites for our couple vacation in Mexico.

Special moments of well-being in the El Dorado Seaside Suites
The luxurious hotel with its extravagant charm has a lot of highlights to offer: Especially the extensive palm-lined garden and the fantastic sun terrace are what I like most – here you can relax in peace and have plenty of space for yourself.
A total of four pool facilities provide fresh cooling. I can highly recommend the relax pool “Arrecifes”, there you can relax in the Balinese daybeds and especially cuddle undisturbed.
With its luxurious wellness area, the hotel offers you a wide range of massages and beauty treatments in addition to various saunas. Let yourself be pampered together.
You are more in the mood for variety on your couples vacation in Mexico? The hotel offers six times a week different daily activities such as cocktail and cooking classes. In the evening you can listen to the daily changing live bands or dance the night away at parties. And if you want to become an entertainer yourself, then join in the karaoke evening. Perfect for singing your favourite song to your heart’s content.
Arriba México – high quality Mexican gourmet food
The creative cuisine with its culinary delicacies leaves nothing to be desired! Let the cooks enchant you with Latino fusion cuisine à-la-carte or Mexican dishes. The TUI BLUE El Dorado Seaside Suites offers you a wide range of high-quality dishes from all over the world. For example, we have pampered ourselves with a romantic candlelight dinner.
The all-inclusive arrangement includes breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as various snacks and drinks. Perfect to make you feel really good on a romantic journey.
Excursions around the hotel on vacation in Mexico
You want to discover the local culture and its fascinating sights during your couples vacation in Mexico? An absolute must-do is a visit to the impressive Mayan ruins in the heart of Tulum. More action awaits you at the Xplor adventure park with zipline and adventurous off-road vehicle rides.
In the TUI BLUE El Dorado Seaside Suites, the TUI BLUE guides will be happy to help you with great insider tips. During our vacation we have made various excursions, which I would like to share with you.
Romantic sailing trip on the Riviera Maya
How about a romantic boat trip into the wonderful sunset on the sea? In the marina of Puerto Aventuras there are various boat and sailing tours available. From the marina you can set off to the Caribbean Sea: enjoy the fresh wind on deck and the view of the coastal landscape of the Riviera Maya. One of the highlights of the tour is certainly and the stop at Isla Mujeres. The island off Cancún is a popular destination for snorkeling and swimming.
The turquoise and clear water is so tempting, you just have to jump into the sea. From the boat the island is also a great photo motif – say cheese 😉 With the evening sun on your face you go back to Puerto Aventuras. Snuggled up in blankets, we watch the beautiful sunset. My tip: Put your camera or smartphone aside and enjoy the wonderful moment 😉
Discover cenotes in Mexico
If you want to spend a romantic holiday in Mexico, you will not miss a special holiday experience: The Cenotes.
Cenotes are subterranean basins, mostly of volcanic origin and like from another world. Scattered rays of sunshine glisten on the turquoise water inside the caves, mysteriously entwining lianas and ferns descend into the underground lakes. #romantic purple
Already the Maya are said to have used these cave systems as religious sites. A special, mystical atmosphere, which you should not miss.
And on your excursion into the fascinating Mexican jungle you can look forward to one of the most beautiful cenotes on the Mayan Riviera. In the clear water, which is often crossed by freshwater currents, you can enjoy snorkeling and swimming. Let yourself drift with your loved one or your loved one in this paradise, watch the many fish and of course take great photos 🙂 #cenote
Snorkeling with turtles on the reef
After this experience we continue to the beautiful white, Caribbean sandy beaches of the Riviera Maya. Accompanied by a guide, you may set off in a small group for an unforgettable snorkeling tour: Explore the beautiful reef with its colourful underwater creatures and corals and swim with the sea turtles. This great encounter will surely remain in our memories for a long time: Without rush and incredibly relaxed, the impressive animals can be peacefully drifted through the warm water. Be sure to take a camera or GoPro with you and take pictures of the sea creatures so that you have a nice memory. But: please do not touch them!
You can book the complete tour Cenote Swimming and Snorkeling with Turtles in advance.
Taco tour in Playa Del Carmen
As is well known, love goes through the stomach – for us this means: typical and authentic cuisine. In Playa del Carmen, only half an hour drive from the hotel, you can find out everything about the most famous snack and the unofficial national dish of Mexico: the taco, at a Taco-Tour. The small corn tortillas, which are filled with different kinds of meat, fresh coriander, chopped onions and a fiery-hot salsa, are traditionally eaten out of the hand. The Taquerias, the stalls, offer a tasty snack all day long.
The taco tour starts at the street market of Playa del Carmen. These smells, these flavours! That alone makes my mouth water and I am really looking forward to finally trying the famous tacos. Don’t worry: on your tour you will stop at several shops and you will be able to taste the traditional taco recipes.
Of course a drink is included:
Pulque, the so-called “Aztec beer” made from fermented agave juice, you must not miss. With this we toast our love holiday and feast through the different kinds of tacos.
Romantic time for two at El Dorado Seaside Suites
After my stay I can say: the TUI BLUE El Dorado Seaside Suites can proudly wear its award as a romantic hotel! Here you can spend a wonderful holiday for two or your honeymoon in Mexico together: With a white beach and the turquoise blue sea in front of the door, wonderful large pool areas to relax and excellent local gourmet offers in the various restaurants.
I would also like to emphasize the staff: the incredibly nice employees read every wish from your eyes. Don’t go – there’s no such thing! So you can fully enjoy your romantic vacation in Mexico every single second.
The perfect holiday with your loved one!
