What can be more romantic than a little island in the Caribbean with no cars and just a few buildings in it? Exactly! Holbox is a very small island located in the Riviera Maya, which has slowly made a name for itself as a little paradise on Earth. It’s so small that you could walk it from its North End to its South End, and you won’t even get tired. It’s so small that only golf carts are allowed in the island. You read it right, if you want to drive in Holbox, you have to get a golf cart. With so little space, all you have to do is to enjoy the stunning white sand beaches, work on your sun tan, and love your significant other.
San Miguel de Allende
Mexico’s most famous colonial town has everything you look for in a romantic destination: cobblestone streets, luxury hotels set in centuries-old buildings, a buzzing art scene and outstanding gourmet restaurants. All with a spectacular mountain background and some of the most beautiful pieces of architecture in the whole country.
