Ideas for a 2-night getaway from Tulum (mini-honeymoon)

Recommended Posts

My fiance & I are staying at the Gran Bahia Principe Akumal for 2 weeks and getting married there on 9th May 2013. We ideally would like to stay out of the resort for 2-3 nights so we have a bit of time on our own. 

 

Our travel agent has suggested Cozumel as an option since it's not too far but I was wondering if anyone knows of any other towns/beaches/areas (that are less than 2 hours drive) that may be nice. We just really want somewhere to relax with maybe a few things to do in the evening. Also we do not want to spend a fortune for these 2-3 nights so please bear that in mind.

 

Thanks for your help, Miriam

This is where I would recommend.

I've never stayed there, just played on the beach in front of it and heard a lot about it. It's AMAZING. The beach is the prettiest beach you'll ever see.  And for a short honeymoon, I think it'd be just perfect.

I second Tlseege. Tulum seems like it would fit your bill. It's just about a half hour down the road from Grand Bahia Principe and there are a ton of small 'Eco resorts' right on Tulum's gorgeous stretch of beach. Most are basically cabanas on the beach, so it's sort of the anti all-inclusive mega-resort deal. They vary in price, but you can find some more affordable options if you don't need luxury. Once there, you can hang on the beach or check out the Mayan ruins either in Tulum or at Coba, which is only about a 30 minute drive away. Or you can visit the sian ka'an biosphere, which is pretty cool. Tulum is way more low key that Playa Del Carmen, Cozumel or Cancun. If you're looking for clubs or things like that, it's probably not your place.

Thanks - this looks like a gorgeous option. Even we don't stay here we'll definitely visit as it looks really lovely. Thanks so much for your help. x

Thanks - we are looking for low key for these 2 nights. I am quite keen. Other than Mezzanine, are there any other small, luxury resorts around that area? Since we are staying around Tulum we want something slightly different than what we would get at the Gran Bahia Principe.  Thanks so much for your help, Miriam :)

Maybe check out Ana Y Jose. El Pez is pretty cool. I've heard good things about Nueva vida de Ramiro. Most places around there aren't luxury per se. Most of the area is off the electrical grid, so only a couple of them have a/c. Mezzanine might be the most upscale option. Any of those places will offer you a very different experience from an AI though.

My fiance has brought up Cozumel again as he likes the idea of going onto an island...lol. Has anyone ever stayed in Cozumel? We would like something nice but not in the party area. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! x
