Playa del Carmen has great restaurant options both on and off the beach, but for this special date we suggest some private and romantic restaurants away from the crowds. With perfect lightning and music, Byblos is a French restaurant located on 10th Avenue on the corner of 24th Street. This location offers an exquisite menu and the service is simply perfect. If the ambiance of 5th Avenue is where you think your loved one would like to spend the evening, Mandarina´s Café and Restaurant has a piano with jazz music and incredible singers. Though in the heart of 5th Avenue, this restaurant makes you feel like it is just the two of you.

Akumal area also has romantic options for Valentine´s Day. Lol Ha Restaurant overlooking the Caribbean has dancing and live music. La Lunita is a Mexican bistro offering beachside tables, an intimate atmosphere and an incredible seafood menu.

The best part of Tulum is its magical surroundings and Canopia certainly proves that. The menu has been exclusively selected to fit any taste, accompanied with helpful staff and romantic decor. Arca Restaurant is another great example of Tulum´s jungle vibe with a twist of romance and intimacy. This restaurant offers Mexican gourmet cuisine inspired by local ingredients, accompanied by excellent service and beautiful ambiance.
