Celebrate Valentine’s Day in Cancun and the Riviera Maya

Celebrate Valentine's Day in Cancun and the Riviera Maya

The origin of the celebration of Valentine’s Day is uncertain since the Catholic Church recognizes three saints with the same name that are remembered on the same date: February 14. However, the legend seems to be directly related to a doctor and priest who married soldiers with their fiancées around the year 300 AD, which was prohibited by the Roman emperor Claudius II as he considered it incompatible with the military career.

The celebration of Valentine’s Day as we know it has been transformed throughout history and has adapted to each society that observes it. For example, in Mexico, Valentine’s Day is also known unofficially as the Day of Love and Friendship and is celebrated by both couples in love and friends.

So, if you are in Cancun or the Riviera Maya around February 14, here are some ideas to celebrate as a couple or with friends:
