As varied as the geography, topography and climate of the country are, so are its sights. A honeymoon in Mexico should include its capital city. Despite its outstretched nature, traffic congestion, and relatively high level of smog pollution, it is the seat of government and the cultural and spiritual heart of the country. You’ll also find a variety of museums to marvel at, including the National Museum of Anthropology, the Templo Mayor Museum, the National Art Museum, and the Museum of Modern Art. The historic center of Mexico City is a UNESCO world heritage site containing many historic landmarks of the city including the Constitution Plaza, and shouldn’t be missed on your honeymoon in Mexico.
While there will likely be too many options to choose from during your honeymoon in Mexico, the following list will get you started.
- The Floating Gardens in Mexico City. They have been in existence since the time of the Aztecs, and are a must-see!
- The Aztec and Mayan structures are some of the country’s greatest cultural and architectural landmarks. The largest Aztec city, Tenochtitlan, lies right at the base of Mexico City.
- Mexico's beaches are among the best in the region and should not be missed by sun and sand worshipers. The traditional beach town of Acapulco on the Pacific coast is still a favourite, as well as the Caribbean coastal areas of Cancun and the island of Cozumel. Take your pick!
