    This laid-back beach town on Mexico’s Riviera Maya is a magnet for couples seeking solitude and romance amid wild, unspoiled beauty. The general vibe of the town may be low-key and rustic – most hotels have no electricity and offer simple accommodations – but there’s also sophisticated cuisine, fantastic beaches (several are clothing optional) and opportunities galore to unwind and be pampered.  Tulum has everything you need for a relaxed, back-to-nature honeymoon or romantic getaway.

    Click on for five of our favorite hotels for sparking – or rekindling – the flame.

    Ana y Jose

    The Vibe: Sophisticated, Mediterranean-style resort particularly suited to spa-lovers and gourmands (the romantic terrace restaurant is very well-regarded) on an idyllic stretch of white-sand beach.

    The Rooms: 23 suites and cottages situated by the pool, around the garden and beachfront. The style is hip and streamlined, with whitewashed walls, travertine tiles and accents of bright color, along with plenty of intimate nooks and lounging spots.

    The Romantic Highlight: The white-curtained cabana-style day beds around the pool are the perfect place to while away a flawless, sunshine-filled Caribbean afternoon.

    The Vibe: Luxurious-meets-rustic villas strung along a perfect arc of beachfront (which is clothing optional)

    The Rooms: 15 free-standing villas are situated right at the edge of the sand and connected via a charming wooden boardwalk through the jungle. Each is made of rough-hewn log frames, with floor to ceiling glass windows all around, large wooden decks with soaking tubs and day beds and thick bamboo blinds that guests can shut for extra privacy.

    The Romantic Highlight: Taking a sunset soak in the outdoor tub and watching the stars come out and the candles begin to glow throughout the resort

    The Rooms: 16 options, ranging from simple (yet still lovely and spotless) cabanas to a two-story luxury beachfront suite.

    The Romantic Highlight: The private salsa lessons on the beach deck to get your Latin groove on for the La Zebra Saturday night salsa party.

    La Nueva Vida de Ramiro

    The Vibe: Warm and friendly eco-resort with a South American flavor

    The Rooms: the 30 rooms are a mix of cabanas, bungalows and suites set amid jungle and strung along a stretch of sand that’s as flawless as all the others in this stretch. The décor is Caribbean in style, with bright colors and net-draped beds. All are within close proximity to the ocean.

    The Romantic Highlight: Dinner at the excellent Casa Banana restaurant, followed by a moonlit stroll along the sand searching for sea turtles, who come here in droves to lay their eggs.
