If you’re looking to head to Mexico this Valentine’s Day, there will be plenty for you and your sweetheart to experience. A variety of Mexican properties, including the Viceroy Riviera Maya and Hotel Matilda, and even Peru's Sumaq Machu Picchu, are all offering deals to get you into the romantic spirit.

At Viceroy Riviera Maya, treat your Valentine to a romantic getaway that includes accommodations in a luxury villa with a private pool, a massage for two, one dinner for two at Marea and daily breakfast for two. Bonus points: really seal the deal with your sweetheart and impress them with the pool turndown service, which includes rose petals, candles, a bottle of sparkling wine and chocolate truffles. The romance package starts at $535 per night and offers travel dates through December 17, 2017, if you already have Valentine’s Day plans.

Year-long romantic amenities at Viceroy Riviera Maya include the aphrodisiac shower experience, which offers a private shower experience in the private garden of your villa, filled with candles, aphrodisiac soaps, glove loofahs, aromatherapy diffusers, sensual massage oil, aphrodisiac truffles and seductive martinis. If you’re looking for some fun, try the artisanal cocktail coaching for some friendly competition with your beau to see who creates the better drink. Viceroy also offers a vow renewal ceremony, offered in a traditional jungle or beach setting, complete with a special blessing and authentic Mayan shaman and Mayan wedding garments.

At Hotel Matilda in San Miguel de Allende, the resort is preparing to celebrate you and your friends this Valentine’s Day by inviting four chefs to prepare a special Supper Club friendship dinner this February 14. The award-winning boutique hotel will serve the original, multi-course menu in Moxi, the hotel’s signature restaurant, operated by Chef Enrique Olvera. The supper will also have an exhibit by the noted Mexican sculptor Dr. Alfonso Castro Rivas.

An honorable mention we couldn’t skip is the Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel. Head a little further south than Mexico to visit this romantic escape at the foot of Machu Picchu. The hotel has created a romantic experience that impacts all senses – a “Romantic Room” designed to provide the most intimate and special space. Accommodations of the newly renovated deluxe room include a view of the mountains above the Vilcanota river, a display of romantic decorations, rose petals, scented candles, chocolate truffles and a seven-course romantic dinner. The Romantic Room rates start at $530 per night, available through March 31, 2017.
