I was thinking about going to Cancun, Cozumel or some paradisiac beach in Mexico for my honeymoon, in November.

1) What beach do you recommend?

2) Any hotel recommendation?
I donĀ“t want a huge commercial hotel with thousands of tourists.
I was thinking about something more exclusive, typical, charming and

Thanks a million!

A couple of friends of mine just got married down in the Mayan Riveria in May. While we did the wedding at a large all-inclusive (because of the logistics of trying to get 80 people in one place), they wanted to have it at the place which was their first vacation together and where he proposed (on a separate trip).

The hotel was in Playa Del Carmen, and was called the Blue Parrot. They have a website at

We went to the blue parrot a couple of nights during the trip for drinks. Very nice beach bar.

The only complaint I would have with the Blue Parrot (and Playa Del Carmen in general) is that the beach is very crowded. However, I think you will probably find that anywhere in the Cancun area.

One thing Greg forgot to mention that you might want to consider is that topless is normal in most parts of Playa del Carmen. So if you aren't planning to go topless, and you want to keep your groom's eyes on you, you might want to consider another location. (Personally I'm fine with it, but not everyone is)

Another possibility is the Westin Las Brisas in Acapulco. A lot of the rooms have private pools as part of the casita. They also have regular pools near the beach--so you can stay alone, or mix with others.

The hotel also throws a fiesta once or twice a week on site--and they really do it up well. Acapulco is also famous for its cliff divers and for its nightclubs--which is great for a younger crowd.
