Beach Weddings
in the Riviera Maya

Warm cotton candy sunsets. Gentle breezes off a twinkling turquoise sea. Soft white sand between your toes. (Sigh!) We agree. There is simply no more stunning setting for a wedding than a beach in the Riviera Maya of Mexico. What a perfect way to start your lives together!


Straight off the airplane, you are a hop, skip and a jump to Cancun’s hotel zone. 26 miles of hotels and resorts rise up out of the white sand beach, and the ocean is an impossible shade of turquoise blue. Cancun’s bustling hotel zone is lively and exciting, with endless options to keep all of your wedding guests entertained; shopping, restaurants, nightlife, family fun, adventure. And there is no shortage of stunning beach front wedding venues to consider.

Playa del Carmen

Cancun’s slightly quieter little sister, Playa del Carmen, is 45 minutes south of the Cancun airport. A former fishing village, Playa still maintains its rustic Mexican charm, but with all the modern conveniences of a holiday-makers paradise. Leisurely stroll along the famous 5th avenue open air shopping strip, and refresh with margaritas under a beach bar palapa. Daytime adventure and nightlife activities are plenty! Host your wedding in a resort, boutique hotel, stunning villa or rustic beach club. The possibilities are endless!


If you want to slow down, and enjoy the best of what Mother Nature offers in the Riviera Maya, then hop off the plane and head due south for 1.5 hours to the sleepy paradise of Tulum. Greet the day with yoga on the beach. Swing lazily in your hammock watching the waves roll in. Bike along the dirt road to find dinner under a jungle canopy strewn with twinkle lights. Tulum weddings are rustic and intimate, held in boutique hotels and beach clubs. Get married surrounded by stunning white sand and turquoise sea, and then dance under the stars.

Why Riviera Maya?

The Riviera Maya offers mile after mile of soft white sand beach and twinkling turquoise sea.  The sunsets are magical, and the evenings are warm.

It is accessible, friendly, and best of all, inexpensive. This is the most ideal location for your vacation of a lifetime!
