The ideology behind the decadent Grand Bahia Principe Coba resort, in stunning Akumal, is that staying at the resort is designed not to just to benefit you during your stay but to bring peace to the soul to last a lifetime. It’s just a short trip to crystal clear waters that feature tons of underwater vegetation and tropical fish, not to mention the high population of sea turtles in the area. With a Grand Bahia wedding, you’re sure to have a ceremony every guest will remember for a lifetime.
The resort is surrounded by jungle, so it’s very likely you and your wedding guests will run into some of the local wildlife.
For truly exciting excursions, you can swim with dolphins on-site, or book swimming trips to Yal-Ku Lagoon or the underwater caves of Sistema dos Ojos.
The resort is large but offers convenient trams to take you around to the nearby beach, restaurants, and rooms. Access to the Principe Tulum next door means you get two giant resorts for the price of one.

“My favourite resort. Huge. Great food and selection. Warm pools and quiet pools reach 90+ degrees Jan-May. And their huge selection of large beautiful pools are routinely 80 degrees from Jan-May. Busy night club is always fun. Basically his resort is so large you’d need to be there for months to see it all. There is something for everyone. Paradise!” – Joe F. 7/17
