Riviera Maya Destination Wedding
The Riviera Maya is a stretch of land that goes from the south of Cancun all the way to Punta Allen, including Cozumel Island, Playa del Carmen, and Tulum, among other beaches quaint towns. For this post purposes, we’ll include Cancun, as it hosts some of the main resorts specialized in weddings. Riviera Maya has been blessed with impressive natural conditions that make justice to its worldwide fame; miles of pristine white sand beaches facing the turquoise-colored waters of the Caribbean Sea and an exuberant jungle hiding archaeological Mayan cities like Chichen Itza or Uxmal. Add to that stunning natural beauty some of the best resorts in the world, and you have all you need to know to choose your wedding destination.
Another advantage of getting married at the Riviera Maya is the diversity of places to choose from; you can select a deserted beach with a group of palapa-style huts, or a glamorous indoor ballroom at a fancy resort in Cancun, or a rustic restaurant with tiki torches at Playa del Carmen, and well, the options are just endless. First of all, you have to decide if you would like to have your wedding at an all-inclusive resort, a boutique hotel, or an exclusive deluxe villa. Defining the kind of wedding you are looking for will narrow your search for the perfect place for such a special day. Among the most spectacular wedding options in the Riviera Maya is to have your wedding in a private luxury villa on the beach. Villa Experience offers a wide variety of wedding villas from Cancun to Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, Akumal, and Tulum.
Other international brand resorts offering outstanding wedding packages are the Secrets Maroma Beach Riviera Cancun, Azul Sensatory, Barceló Maya Palace, Iberostar Quetzal, Dreams Tulum, RIU RM, and the Fairmont Mayakoba; most of them offer all-inclusive packages for you and your guests. Traditional Mayan rituals are available at El Taj Oceanfront & Beachside Condo Hotel, Las Palapas, Playa del Karma, or Luna Blue Hotel in Playa del Carmen or the Playa Palms Boutique Beach Hotel, Marina Maroma, and the Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya in Tulum.
Not forget about the legal requirements to get married in Mexico, which are a waiting period of 2-4 days, certified copies of birth certificates previously legalized and translated by the Mexican consulate with jurisdiction over the place of birth, driver’s licenses or passports, citizens under age 18 need parent or guardian’s consent, a copy of tourist card or visa, proof of divorce or death certificate previously legalized by the Mexican consulate with jurisdiction over the place of filing, names, addresses, ages, nationalities and tourist-card numbers of four witnesses, Mexican-performed blood tests and X-rays, and a Judge’s form.
