The honeymoon is just as important as the wedding for every couple. Choosing the place where you will spend your honeymoon is as complicated as choosing the wedding dress.

Here we make things a little easier, and we mention some of the places in the state of Yucatan, where you will definitely spend an unforgettable honeymoon.


Uxmal is the favorite place for spouses to enjoy their first days as newlyweds. This is due to the fact that the Entity has a lot to offer: natural, colonial, archaeological sites and haciendas, culture, history, gastronomy that attract the attention of the new stream of travelers.
