If you want to travel to an international city with a chill vibe and a killer food scene on a budget, Mexico’s capital checks off everything on that list. Book your stay in trendy Roma or Condesa to be near the city’s hottest bars, restaurants, and artisanal boutiques. Bring your appetites to sample everything from street tacos to tasting Mexican delectables in the various Mercados to fine dining at Pujol or Quintonil. Sunset drinks are a must at the rooftop bar of Hotel Condesa or end your night sipping mezcal at Bosforo, a speakeasy downtown. No trip to Mexico City is complete without a visit to the Frida Kahlo Museum set in the artist’s old residence.
While it’s gaining popularity, Tulum still offers a rustic boho atmosphere far removed from Cancun or Playa Del Carmen. If your bride is a beach bum who also loves nature, consider a trip to this carefree paradise. Get up early for sunrise yoga on the beach or to beat the crowds at the nearby Mayan ruins. After basking in the sun all day, cool off with a dip in one of the areas stunning cenotes. Be sure to feast at one of the jungle-to-table restaurants or devour the world’s freshest ceviche at El Camello. The party scene here is unmatched with Tulum’s lively strip and the legendary full moon beach parties at Papaya Playa project.
