Love is Blind Filming Locations in Mexico

Love is Blind” is taking over “The Bachelor” as the must-watch dating show of the year.  15 men & 15 women meeting each other blindly through the walls of their individual pods, then meeting in-person AFTER they’ve gotten engaged, is simply a concept too juicy to miss!  Once the couples meet face-to-face, they’re whisked away to an exotic locale: typically in Mexico’s tropical Yucatan Peninsula.  Because these resorts are so beautiful, I thought it would be fun to discuss “Love is Blind Filming Locations in Mexico,” in case you want to replicate their romantic (in some cases) getaways….

By about Episode 3 or 4 of “Love is Blind,” the couples typically take off for Mexico to test their in-person chemistry. Photo by Radio Times.

Love is Blind” has filmed ALL over the Yucatan Peninsula: from Cancun, to sexy Playa del Carmen….& most recently in Akumal, which is near Tulum.

Where Did “Love is Blind” Season 5 Film?

When I originally wrote this article, Season 5 of “Love is Blind” hadn’t aired yet.  But now, in September 2023, it is ~ & Season 5 actually filmed in the same place as Season 1: Grand Velas Riviera Maya.  On the show, when contestants pull up to the resort, the name actually reads as Grand Velas All-Suites & Spa….but that’s just another name for Grand Velas Riviera Maya.  Confusing, I know!  Guests absolutely rave about this hotel, & you can read more about it below. 

Check prices for all-inclusive Grand Velas Riviera Maya here.

GWTW Secret Info: One of my readers recently vacationed at TRS Yucatan in Akumal, where Season 4 of “Love is Blind” filmed. So my guess is…. Season 6 of “Love is Blind” will film their Mexico/honeymoon portion there!

  • Season 3 of “Love is Blind = Calamigos Guest Ranch & Beach Club ($505+/night), which is set in the hilltops overlooking Malibu.  Season 3 took a turn, & is the only season not filmed in Mexico.  Instead, they chose a beautiful ranch located in the Santa Monica mountains, that feels a bit like a fabulously-decorated treehouse.  There are vineyards, an infinity pool, chandeliers floating from huge treetop canopies, & an overall rustic yet modern vibe. 

A free shuttle takes visitors down to their Beach Club & “Surf Shack.”

  • Season 4 of “Love is Blind = TRS Yucatan Adults-Only Hotel ($321+/night), located in Akumal.  Season 4 takes us back to Mexico, to yet another fabulous Yucatan resort ~ & another TRS property.  This one has a more tropical feel, with thatched roofs & a Polynesian-chic vibe in the soaring main lobby.  You can take boat rides around their turquoise lagoon here, which surrounds much of the property.  Set slightly back from the ocean, many of the rooms have jungle views & lush trees surrounding private pools (like Chelsea & Kwame’s).

There are six bars here, ten restaurants, eight pools, a spa, & they’ve even got a beauty salon.  Meaning: you hardly need to leave the hotel.

“Blissful retreat in paradise! We travelled to TRS Yucatan for our honeymoon & spent 10 beautiful nights there. The resort far exceeded our expectations, & being adults-only made for a very peaceful retreat. From the architecture & decor, to the high standard of service, to the high-quality of food ~ it really was a spectacular holiday.”

 If I had to choose where to stay between these four hotels….I’d definitely opt for Mexico over Malibu, & may choose TRS Coral Hotel simply because it would be awesome to swim up to the room!   But they all look pretty amazing…
