Riviera Maya on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula is a fantastic choice for a destination wedding for couples who want a place that is exciting and memorable for their wedding. You might think that organising a wedding somewhere as far away like Mexico would be difficult, but there is a wealth of luxury resorts, boutique hotels, and private villas which make planning Riviera Maya wedding a breeze.
Secrets Maroma Beach
National Geographic named Playa Maroma as one of the world’s top 50 beaches, and it is easy to see why with its crystal clear waters and expanse of white sugar sand. Secrets Maroma Beach Resort has its own private beach complete with an elevated wedding gazebo. They offer the choice of an elegant ballroom reception, or more relaxed reception on the beach or terrace.
The amenities at the resort are excellent and include a large infinity swimming pool, sea view rooms, jacuzzi, tennis courts, a wide choice of sports, kids clubs, and professional performers.
Be Tulum Wedding
If you like your luxury resorts on the intimate side, Be Tulum is ideal. The boutique spa hotel nestles between the sparkling sea and a tropical forest, giving a private and serene experience. The standard of service is second to none. You and your guests will never forget having dinner on the moonlit beach, surrounded by warm flickering torch light.
Take advantage of the Be Tulum spa and have your pre-wedding nerves expertly massaged away, relax the morning after your wedding with a champagne breakfast in your ocean suite, and enjoy the sensation of having your every need met by superb staff.
Xcaret Park Wedding
There are not that many venues in the world where you can get married and swim with dolphins, but then Xcaret Park in Cancun is no ordinary venue. It occupies a wonderful spot on the edge of the Caribbean Sea, offering couples a choice of religious or civil ceremonies.
Depending on the size and type of your wedding you can celebrate in a magical grotto, a modern hacienda, or on the sand in either a sunny day time ceremony or a candlelit night ceremony. The park itself is one of Riviera Maya’s biggest attractions, and transport can be arranged from the main hotels in the area to make it easy for your guests to plan their stay.
The cenotes of Riviera Maya are one of the region’s most impressive natural wonders which is no small feat in an area this beautiful. Sacred to the ancient Maya, the freshwater sinkholes are a peaceful place to exchange vows, and a wonderful place for you and your guests to visit.
Cenote wedding photography in Riviera Maya is very popular with couples who want a “trash the dress”, or underwater wedding shoot, but the clear water and lush rainforest is a fantastic backdrop for more traditional wedding photos as well.
El Taj Wedding
The award winning El Taj is the last, but certainly not least, on the list of the best wedding venues in Riviera Maya. They are experts at staging beautiful beach weddings, and with a choice of accommodation types, your guests can plan to suit their budget.
El Taj welcomes couples all year round whether you are a couple eloping or bringing 200 of your nearest and dearest with you to celebrate.
With an abundance of natural beauty, sensational venues, and tropical appeal, Riviera Maya will give you the experience of a lifetime.
