In a normal year, up to 25% of couples getting married choose to have a destination wedding. However, what many don’t realize is that this can also be done for a proposal — and there’s no better place to go than one of Mexico’s many beautiful locations. From a beachside proposal in Cozumel for the adventurous couple to proposing on a boat in the rich history-filled canals of Xochimilco, here are just a few notable locations that are more than worthy for popping the question.
A beach proposal in Cozumel
For adventurous couples who want a classic proposal on the beach, you can’t go wrong with doing so at one of Cozumel’s breathtaking beaches. With Cozumel being so close to one of the most beautiful reef systems, this location isn’t just ideal for the “typical” beach proposal, as there are a number of aquatic and fun activities to do before or after popping the question, thus allowing you to get so much more out of the day than simply going on a walk on the beach. Playa Punta Morena is just one notable beach worth taking into consideration, as it’s great for active couples who love long walks on the beach, surfing, or who just want to relax after just getting engaged.
Making memories in Cancun
While proposing in a nice restaurant is a common way to ask the big question, doing so at Harry’s Steakhouse in Cancun takes the concept to a whole other level. With outdoor booths that overlook the Nichupte Lagoon, natural ecosystem made up of mangroves and lagoons, the restaurant isn’t only perfect due to it’s menu (which includes fine dining menu items like lobster and Kobe meat), but the spectacular view of the sunset makes for the ultimate romantic aesthetic fit for someone who’s planning a proposal. Armed with a unique and a ring full of meaning — such as a three stone halo engagement ring (in which the three stones represent the past, present, and the future), you can ensure that the night will hold a lot of meaning and memories for a happy marriage to come.
Proposing waterside in Mexico City
For those looking for a truly memorable proposal, popping the question on the canals of Xochimilco while riding in a colorful gondola is the perfect way to explore Mexico City’s urban landscape while simultaneously taking in the city’s rich history all in one trip. Known for being man-made in Mesoamerican times, the canals are home to hundreds of years of history, while local food vendors and mariachi bands make for a festive atmosphere fit for a proposal in addition to those who are looking for a sense of adventure.
Destination weddings are becoming more and more mainstream, though considering a destination proposal is another option worth considering, too. For those looking for the perfect proposal location, choosing one of the many beautiful locations in Mexico is sure to make the night a memorable one.
