10 Places to Stay for a Romantic Vacation in Cancun

Cancun, still the Spring Break capital of the world for about one month during the year, is also one of the most romantic places in the world to take a vacation. The palm trees swaying in the warm Caribbean breeze, white sand beaches and aqua blue ocean waters can help reignite romance in a relationship. Cancun boasts many couple and adult-only resorts and activities, tours, beach clubs and spas that are perfect for couples who hope to escape, relax, unwind and reconnect.

Le Blanc Spa Resort is arguably Cancun's most romantic resort. Located in Cancun's Hotel Zone, not only is it an adult-only property, but Le Blanc also has a AAA Five Diamond rating. Other adult-only resorts in the Hotel Zone include Live Aqua, Sun Palace, Hyatt Zilara Cancun and spicy Temptation Cancun. The Ritz Carlton Cancun, though not an adult-only resort, also provides an upscale, romantic experience.

Just outside of Cancun, three Excellence resorts beckon couples looking to enjoy a tropical vacation together; Excellence Riviera Cancun, Excellence Playa Mujeres and Beloved. Also located outside of Cancun in Puerto Morelos, Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun lives up to the Secrets name by providing a luxurious adult-only couples vacation.

Cancun's romantic resorts await couples who would like to reignite the spark in their relationship.
