About Monica U
Lives in Sydney, Australia
Since Jan 2014
35-49 year old female
Globetrotter, foodie and lover of good festivals, digital marketing and writing. I have visited more than 80 cities around the world but have called Sydney home for the last 10 years. Previously , I lived in Cancun, Mexico and Playa del Carmen for 5 years and learnt to scuba dive. Having a partner that skies, Queenstown is one of our favourite destinations both in winter and in summer, and just a little "jump" from Sydney. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to cook a meal and share it among friends.

While there are many Italian restaurants in Playa, for a special romantic night, El Cenacolo is the best place for wining and dining a loved one in authentic Italian style. Right in the heart of 'Quinta Avenida,' the restaurant has a sophisticated atmosphere, absolutely fantastic food, and one of the most impressive wine lists in Playa. The owners still make the hand-made pasta according to an old family recipe and only use the best ingredients.
Treat your sweetheart to a memorable meal at this enchanted tropical Mayan Garden right in the middle of Playa. Here you can try exquisite Mexican fusion food, savor the delicious cocktails, and soak up the romantic atmosphere.
What could be more romantic that walking hand in hand through 13th century Mayan ruins while enjoying views out across the glorious turquoise Caribbean ocean? Tulum is a 'must-see' destination for couples and non-couples alike; a truly memorable place where the spirits of old civilizations are brought back to life.
According to the Mayan tradition, cenotes were 'doors to the underworld.' What better way to explore this sacred underground cavern together than by snorkeling in its wonderful crystalline waters? The drive to get here passes through a short stretch of jungle, and the excitement of discovering this hidden underground cavern will surely have your hearts beating faster!
Located right on the beach in Playa del Carmen, Fusion is the perfect place for a romantic night out on the town. There are live music performances every evening, from Latin to rock to reggae, and the night ends with an amazing Fire Show in front of the ocean — the perfect excuse to cuddle up closer.
This contemporary and sophisticated rooftop bar in Playa del Carmen has a distinct aura of romance about it. Here, you and your lover can enjoy spectacular ocean views, excellent service, and a great menu. It is a place to simply relax, people-watch, and share extraordinary experiences together, nestled in one of the comfortable lounges.
