The Banyan Tree Mayakoba in Riviera Maya was the perfect location for newlyweds Jonny & Athena to escape for their honeymoon! The property was both a perfect oasis to relax, and also close enough to daytime adventures and nighttime city-life when the two felt like getting out. The resort is a stunning wildlife preserve, filled with exotic plants and animals, all of which they were able to enjoy first hand.
What I love about this honeymoon is how well Johnny and Athena split their time. They spent a lot of time relaxing on the sand, drinking fruity drinks and soaking up the sun, and they also did fun excursions and really immersed themselves in the surrounding culture. Here are a few of their favorite activities, from swimming in the historic cenote, to zip-lining, to exploring old Mayan ruins, and going snorkeling.
