Are you dreaming of a destination beach wedding in the Riviera Maya, but want a more personalized, uniquely-you and private experience than what is offered in the standard all-inclusive resort wedding packages?
Well, you’re not the only one! We get asked for our off resort wedding venue recommendations so often, that I figured it was time for a blog post on the subject! So without further adoo, here are our 3 top locations for an amazing destination wedding between Playa del Carmen and Tulum.

The Grand Coral Beach Club, Riviera Maya
The Grand Coral beach club is conveniently located just a hop, skip and jump north of the center of Playa del Carmen. This is a great option if you and your guests want to stay in or near Playa del Carmen, taking advantage of all it has to offer, and not have to travel far for your beach wedding ceremony and reception.
Get married with sandy toes on a beautiful stretch of the turquoise Caribbean sea, and then retire to the pool deck atop the beach for your wedding reception. How perfect! Contact us directly to put you in touch with the best Riviera Maya wedding planner who is experienced with this location, ensuring that your unique wedding vision is realized.

Villa Sol y Luna, Playa del Carmen
How much fun would it be to stay in a big, beautiful villa right on the beach, with your nearest and dearest, and have your destination wedding celebration right on site? If that sounds up your alley, then consider Villa Sol y Luna as your beach wedding venue. Up to 20 of you can stay on the property for your once in a lifetime vacation, and the site can accommodate a wedding of up to 150 people.
Get married on a beautiful white sandy beach, and then choose to have your reception barefoot in the sand, or by your own private pool! Contact us directly for our recommended wedding planner for this location.

Ak’iin Beach Club, Tulum
Tulum, Mexico has been likened to Thailand or Bali. It has a whole different vibe than Playa del Carmen or Cancun. It is tranquil, slow-paced, and incredibly beautiful. Picture your holiday spent navigating between lush jungle and pristine white Caribbean beach on a bicycle, in no particular rush to get anywhere. Sound like your speed?
Then let us recommend the Ak’iin beach resort as our preferred destination wedding location in Tulum. This spot offers the perfect blend of natural, rustic jungle, and swanky beach club. And you truly couldn’t pick a prettier backdrop for a beach wedding. The stretch of powder white sand beach is unparalleled in the Riviera Maya, allowing you as much space as your wedding vision requires. Contact us directly for our recommended wedding planner for this location to make that dream into a reality!
