The country of Mexico can offer some of the most variety in locales. You could romance in any of their tropical beach locales to enjoy the passions that sun, sand and surf elicits. Or, you may just fall in love with the idea of experiencing an exciting and thrilling adventure in one of its historic Mayan rainforests.

If you are a couple looking for a more relaxing retreat from the work-a-day world, consider running away to beautiful Mazatlan on the pacific coast. While this friendly city embraces tourism and has many fine resorts, restaurants, and activities available, Mazatlan could survive without it, which means the area has less “hype” and allows you to enjoy the city without feeling the pressure that being a tourist sometimes creates. In fact, there are many successful industries based here, such as a large commercial fishing fleet and the local brewery, which produces Pacifico Beer. All of this translates to a more laid back atmosphere and a quieter tourist scene. The food here, especially the seafood is excellent with many restaurants located right on the beach. Perfect for watching sunsets with the one you love.
If you are looking for more “action” on your romantic getaway, Cabo San Lucas is well known as a party town and can provide nonstop excitement. Located at the tip of the Baja peninsula, Cabo is Sammy Hagar’s adopted home and boasts Sammy’s own club, Cabo Wabo. There are many other places to sample libations and dance the night away, but don’t worry, there are also many quiet, romantic spots to dine at while watching the glorious sunset. Daytime activities, such as horseback riding and snorkeling, can also be a great time for just the two of you to enjoy together.
Maybe your idea of a perfect romantic getaway is being pampered and catered to in a luxurious hotel suite.
