Recommend a romantic boutique hotel in Mexico?

Hi all,

My fiance and I are in the process of planning our honeymoon. We have fallen in love with Amuleto ( -- we love that its small (only 6 rooms) with lots of "luxurious" touches like private terraces with plunge pools and hammocks, garden showers, etc. Only problem is that it is in Zihjuanto (I butchered the spelling). Airfares alone are running $1000/pp, and that is generally with 2 connections and/or overnight layovers because we are coming from the East Coast.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a hotel with a similar vibe in an area that is slightly easier to get to. We'd prefer if it is on Baja Peninsula/Pacific Coast, as we will be honeymooning at the end of October and it is still hurricane season in the Gulf of Mexico.

Take a look at the hotels on the Mayan Riviera. You fly into Cancun Airport and travel south from the airport. Look at Maroma Hotel. Its small and on a beautiful beach. (I just walked it the other day)!! Yes, it is hurricane season, but it is hurriance season on the west coast, too. If Maroma doesn't do it for you, there are many other nice, small properties along that coast. Look at for help.

Wow! Amuleto looks wonderful. I can't give any first hand info that would compare. You may want to check to get some better ideas.

Have you thought about Costa Rica? Manuel Antonio has some options that may compare.

Good luck and congrats.

Lots of flights to ZIHUATANEJO but some require a change.
Consider The Ritamour in Puerto Vallarta hills. A fabulous choice!
PS Not a good time for Baja or The East Coast IMO

check out the website They have wonderful boutique hotels in Mexico.
Esencia and Maroma on the Mayan Riviera look wonderful, but expensive.
Or check out Casa de Mita in Punta Mita, close to Puerto Vallarta.

Maroma, outside playa del carmen, is fantastic. Very romantic, great service, picture perfect beach. Rates are high, but its still low season so you should be able to get some deals. Yes, the end of October can still be Hurricane Season but, that is pretty late. Have fun and congrats.

Many years ago I stayed at Ana Y Jose Cotagges (a couple of hours south of Cancun, not far from Tulum). Very unique experience: small place, cottages are beach front, beaultiful setting, in the restaurant you have your feet on sand, tatched roofs (wind blow through is all night: very cool!).

Their website is at:

I have a picture of the place on my website also:
