So, you’re planning a destination wedding. Congratulations are in order of course! But here comes the tricky part: you have to decide on a destination. As simple as this may seem, there is a bevy of picturesque Mexico and Caribbean locations that would provide the perfect base for an unforgettable experience.

There’s a minor issue, however. All of these global hotspots seemingly have the same immaculate climates, luxury resorts, breathtaking venues, and dazzling excursions. While this may be partially true, we firmly believe that every destination delivers unique retreats specifically molded by its surrounding culture and environment. So, without further ado, let’s get down to the basics:


Take a short flight down to a mystic wonderland teeming with lush jungles, cultural landmarks, and perhaps the most exciting array of watersports in North America. It’s intimidating, at times, to view Mexico’s selection of locations. Not only are you met with 8 possible destinations in the same country, but each city and town boasts flora, fauna, and activities linked to their respective region. However, this is the beauty of planning a Mexico destination wedding.

Every location possesses its own atmosphere. Whether you’re taking a dive in a refreshing cenote in the Riviera Maya forest or touring Puerto Vallarta’s artistically stunning downtown district, you’ll discover a wedding environment that perfectly accommodates you and your guests’ preferred speed.
