Lounge area at Capella Ixtapa in Mexico.

You check out the hotel's website, and it is gorgeous. The views of the ocean are incredible. You book your dream vacation, but when you get there, the only thing you have a view of is the parking lot and a noisy ice machine. We've all been there. And that's the last thing you want on your honeymoon. Enter Mexico's Capella Ixtapa! Not only does every room feature a magnificent ocean view, but each one also has its own private plunge pool. It's like guaranteed paradise, right?

When honeymooning in Ixtapa, which is near Zihuatanejo, you can expect more than just a pretty view (although the view is so spectacular it would almost be enough). They offer several unique activities that will allow you to experience local culture while having a fun time! First, you absolutely cannot miss their tequila tastings! Learn all about the history and process of marking tequila, while getting to sample the very delicious product.

Next, try a cooking class with the executive chef. They will pick a menu based on what is in season and show you the beauty of true Mexican Cuisine.

But above all, don't forget to book a little time at the spa. From a romantic massage for two to an acupressure treatment to take the post-wedding stress away, they have everything you need for a little therapeutic luxury!
