Honeymooner in an infinity pool at Capella Ixtapa Resort and Spa in Mexico.

When you read about Ixtapa, it's almost overwhelming in the best possible way. There's just so much to do and see and experience, you wonder how you will be able to do it all.

First, let's talk location.  Capella Ixtapa sits on the sun-drenched coast of Mexico overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You really can't beat the weather or the stunning sunsets.  The accommodations are equally beyond compare. Imagine the two of you cuddling up in a deluxe suite with a panoramic view of the ocean and your own terrace and private plunge pool.

And you'd probably be cool with just staying there, drink in hand and staring at all of the gorgeousness surrounding you. But the best part of Capella Ixtapa is their completely unique activity options. From cooking classes with local chefs (where you actually follow the process from market to table) to fascinating tours of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo that will have your camera's memory card filled up in a flash, there are near-endless opportunities to experience the wonder of Mexico.  One bonus to honeymooning in the winter (aside from the obvious escape to warm sunniness), is the whale migration you can witness right from the hotel.

Before you leave this paradise, you absolutely have to visit their spa. Yes, all resorts have spas. But not all of them can say that they were awarded the recognition of #1 Spa in Mexico and Central America by Conde Nast.  So, go and unwind before you have to pack up to head back home.
