The Best Babymoon Resorts in Mexico
Babymoons are the hottest trend of the year and I’m all about it! The babymoon is the last big vacation before the baby, and what I love about the idea of a babymoon is that it allows you the chance to set aside the stresses of everyday life and pregnancy, and focus on intimate time with your partner before life changes in a big way! Give yourself, your partner and your little one on the way the R&R you all deserve and escape to paradise. Mexico is an ideal destination for that. These are the absolute best babymoon resorts in Mexico, from the luxe west coast, to the warm clear waters of the Yucatan, you’re bound to leave feeling refreshed, connected and even more excited for what is to come!!
This sprawling new addition to the Los Cabos coastline is something out of a desert mirage. Blending in to the rocky mountains, the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal has 119 gorgeous rooms with dramatic ocean views. While it will feel as if you’re on your own private island, you’ll actually be within walking distance of downtown Cabo! Explore the shopping scene and local vendors slinging handmade silver jewelry before returning to watch the sun set on El Farrallon’s new champagne terrace! Suites each have their own private plunge pool and the beach-front suites even have their own pools/hammocks! This place is DREAMY. So grab a romantic novel and a virgin mojito and soak up the vitamin D.
Just 10 miles from Puerto Vallarta sits the exclusive and gated peninsula region of Punta Mita. This beachfront oasis is home to multimillion-dollar villas, high end residential communities, two Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, a tennis center, and of course, some of the best luxury hotels in Mexico. The Four Seasons Punta Mita is sitting right at the top of that list. With unparalleled service, 10 onsite restaurants (yep, you read that right, 10!), two gorgeous golf courses, pristine pacific coastline and beachfront casitas! It’s hard to do much better than the FS Punta Mita! Spend your days lounging in their lazy river, going for long beach walks on the private beaches, or maybe even trying one of their signature prenatal massages!
To me, this Four Seasons property is an amazing choice for a babymoon because you know that they’ll do everything possible to take care of your every need during your stay. Their service and attention to detail is unmatched, and that means a lot on a babymoon!
The all-new One&Only Mandarina is located just 45 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport, and it is STUNNING.
This luxurious beachfront resort is all about connecting with nature and the incredible natural beauty of the area. Think: jaw-dropping jungle treehouses as your room, elevated above the tree canopy and perched on stilts along the cliffside. The incredible suites offer private views of the ocean and the surrounding Sierra del Vallejo mountains, and each modern treehouse villa was constructed to blend in seamlessly with nature. Spend your days watching the sun rise over the tree-tops, enjoying a mama-to-be treatment in the hidden rainforest spa, or going for walks in nature. I can see a babymoon here being just what the doctor ordered. So relax and enjoy these precious moments before your party of two turns into a party of three!
Surrounded by 29 acres of protected jungle, Nizuc sits along the powdery-white coastline of Cancún, right next to one of the largest coral reefs in the world (hellooo snorkeling). With five onsite restaurants, two private beaches and an award-winning spa, you won’t even need to leave the resort (unless of course you’d like to explore the nearby ancient Mayan ruins, which I highly recommend!). If you’re feeling boujee, upgrade to a 1,300 sq. ft suite with a terrace infinity pool overlooking Caribbean views (plus these bathtubs!!). This is where you should go if tranquil days by the pool with a book or floating in the crystal clear calm ocean with your baby bump sound like the only medicine you need.
Nestled between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas and exuding alllll the luxury desert vibes, Las Ventanas offers the best of both desert and coastline scenery. Setting the gold standard for 5-star accommodation, Rosewood’s Las Ventanas will pamper you from the moment you land at SJO (thankfully just a 20 minute private transfer to the resort), until checkout time (where you’ll receive a handblown glass keepsake!!!). If you opt for a suite, you’ll have your own 24/7 butler to cater to your every desire. Pregnancy craving for chocolate cake at midnight? Say no more! Private candle-lit dinner on the beach? You got it! Their spa uses all local ingredients and has special “mother’s to be” packages.
If there’s one hotel in Mexico I wish I could just move right in to, it’s One&Only Palmilla. I just love the old-world Mexican charm at this hotel. Their glamorous suites have stunning sea-views, oversized terraces, and a dedicated butler available 24/7. From whale watching, yacht charters, or a dip in the pacific, this resort is your access point to all Los Cabos has to offer. Spend the day lounging in a plush daybed and then watch the sunset over the Sea of Cortez as you indulge in the modern Mexican cuisine at Aqua!
Is it safe to babymoon in Mexico?
Expecting moms have every right to be worried about safety when it comes to where to babymoon. Since you’ll want to make sure you do not travel to places with Zika virus or malaria, it’s important to research pregnancy-safe babymoon destinations. Typically, Zika nor malaria are not an issue in Cabo, Mexico, which makes Cabo a safe place to babymoon!
