The pool at Verana in Yelapa, Mexico
Because of its popularity with newlyweds, Verana offers two lavish honeymoon packages. Along with romantic candlelit dinners and private picnics, make sure to indulge in an alfresco bath by starlight. Built on a hillside deep in The Valle del Sierra Madre Occidental, this resort promises seclusion, beginning with your arrival by boat and a hike up to your room — with donkeys carrying your luggage. Following a philosophy of harmony with the natural environment, the infinity pool seems to spill across the sky into the ocean below, while each individual "house" blends into the jungle, offering a luxurious wilderness setting for the start of your new adventure together.
