February 8th, 2024

With over a decade of experience in the industry, I've seen my fair share of 'I dos' in a variety of venues, and today, I'd love to share my top picks with you.


First, let's head to the heart of Playa Del Carmen. Here, you'll find the stunning Banyan Tree Mayakoba. This venue is a luxury paradise that's perfect for larger wedding parties. Imagine saying your vows surrounded by crystal clear lagoons and lush mangroves, it's a sight to behold.


If you're planning a more intimate affair, La Pasion Hotel Boutique, also in Playa Del Carmen, is a hidden gem. This charming colonial-style venue is renowned for its stunning rooftop garden and pool, providing a unique backdrop for any wedding. It's romantic, intimate, and perfect for elopements or smaller weddings.


Moving further along the coast, in the vibrant city of Cancun, you'll come across the Moon Palace Cancun. This all-inclusive resort plays host to a variety of weddings, suitable for all budgets. With a choice of beach, garden, and chapel settings, it's truly a versatile venue.


Tucked away in Cancun's Hotel Zone is another treasure, the Beach Palace Cancun. This is my recommendation for couples who dream of a beach wedding. The turquoise Caribbean Sea provides a mesmerizing backdrop for your special day.


Finally, let's venture to the laid-back town of Tulum. Nestled amidst the tropical jungle is the charming Zamas Tulum. With its rustic beachfront huts and a stunning view of the Caribbean Sea, it's an ideal spot for an intimate, boho-style wedding.


For those with a larger wedding party, Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa is a fantastic choice in Tulum. With its elegant colonial architecture, gorgeous beachfront, and lush tropical gardens, it's a venue that can cater to every style and budget.


Whether you're planning a grand celebration or an intimate elopement, the venues in Playa Del Carmen, Cancun, and Tulum are sure to provide a beautiful backdrop for your special day. Remember, it's not just about the venue, it's about the love, laughter, and happily-ever-after that makes a wedding truly special.
