6. Majordomo & Private Chef, Azul Villa Carola.

Ok, engaged couples, close your eyes and imagine this for your destination wedding: Upon arrival, you and your guests greeted by your majordomo and private chef, who promptly offer you a chilled glass of champagne and a cold aromatic towel.

With to die for, world class Gourmet Inclusive cuisine, there''s no doubt that every Karisma Hotels & Resorts property is a dream come true for the foodie couple.

8. Cultural Tours.

No need to stay put at your resort (unless you want to, which we can totally understand...wink.). There's just something about being in an exotic land visiting spots where history happened, mixing it up with the locals, learning together about a region's rich culture, that's, well, sexy! We'll take you to Tulum, the site of a Pre-Columbian Maya walled city, where the ruins are situated on breathtaking 12-meter tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea.  Or venture to the archaeological site of Chichen Itza, a large pre-Columbian city built by the Maya people of the Terminal Classic period. Get lost in the colorful culture of ancient Mexico!

9. Action & Adventure, El dorado Maroma.

They say a couple that plays together stays together, right? Located on one of Travel Channel's "Top 10 Beaches in the World", El Dorado Maroma is a dream for couples that desire both romance and action. And for a bit more of an adrenaline rush, take advantage of Maroma Adventures located next door, offering a variety of exciting activities like parasailing over the waves or swimming with the dolphins. Or arrange an off-site excursion, including deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, or ATV fun.

10. Nightlife, Karisma Hotels & Resorts and beyond.

Throughout your visit, keep in mind that you are away, far far away from responsibility, work, kids, and reality, for the most part. Time to cut loose and live a little, together. Or, if you're craving to rock the night away, local style, shuttles can safely transport you to and from a multitude of establishments in nearby cities like Cancun and Playa del Carmen where bars, nightclubs and discos, each with their own vibe and theme, often pulse 'til the wee hours.

Since we foolishly titled this article "10 Ways", we simply must draw this list to a close. But there's so much more. And the good news is, many of these special amenities, features and accommodations are available at multiple properties, if not all. So, whether you're planning your Big Day, an anniversary, vow renewal, or just a much needed and deserved getaway together, we've got your Gourmet Inclusive recipe for romance.
