Can I just go back to Riviera Maya? Kale and I had the best time on vacation with Kale a few weeks ago and I can’t stop thinking about it! My head is definitely at the beach still, and on all of our romantic beach dates! While the entire trip was essentially one big 6 day long date, we did take a few moments to really celebrate being there with each other. We stayed at an all-inclusive resort (read about that here) called The Occidental at Xcaret Destination in Riviera Maya, Mexico. While the resort was all-inclusive, and we went on a few excursions (read about those here), we wanted to include a few special experiences to really relax and enjoy our trip with each other.
Couples Massage on the Beach
While most of the trip was relaxing, there was nothing compared to our 80 minute couples massage on the beach. We were right above the water in an elevated bungalow on the beach. I wish I could tell you more about the massage, but the time just floated by and I finally stopped thinking for a bit. The whole process was amazing. I mean we walked off the beach to our bungalow, enjoyed an 80 minute couples massage, and afterwards we were left to enjoy a bottle of wine on the beach. It was truly the best experience I’ve ever had at a spa.
Romantic Dinner on the Beach
For the other romantic beach date, we planned for our last night there. We opted for a romantic dinner on the beach, which was one of the most romantic experiences I’ve ever had. Everything from the mood to the weather was incredible. This time we had another bungalow set up just for us right outside of the special Members Only area. We had a personal waiter and the most amazing view for dinner. The sunset was on the other side of the island, but the moon coming up was the most amazing view! I can’t forget to mention how amazing the food was, too! It was by far our favorite meal the whole trip!

If you stay at The Occidental at Xcaret Destination absolutely look into these romantic beach dates. I highly recommend them for couples. I’ve had the hardest time choosing my favorite part of vacation, but the massage and the dinner were two of the best experiences that contributed to the entire amazing experience!
