The most popular location today for beach weddings in Mexico is the Riviera Maya which extends 100 miles along the Caribbean coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, from south of Puerto Morelos to the ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum. Once home to a small fishing village, the Riviera Maya coastline has become a magnet for development and modern tourist attraction and luxury resorts.
The ideal vacation wedding destination, the Riviera Maya offers fine dining, nightlife, spa retreats, wellness spas, shopping, adventure, sports, amazing ecological wonders, and opportunities to learn about an amazing ancient culture and visit stunning archeological Mayan sites.
The Riviera Maya is home to some of the most spectacular beautiful beaches in the world and home to “best beach in the world” by renowned travel magazine. With expansive stretches of powdery white sand beaches, and sparkling clear turquoise waters from the Caribbean Sea make it the perfect backdrop for a destination beach wedding of a lifetime.
Your wedding guests can spend the day at an all-inclusive luxury beach resort club where they'll enjoy swimming, sun-worshiping, water sports, spa, and a never ending list of modern amenities by 5 star luxury hotels. You’ll find many of the best hotels for your wedding near Playa del Carmen, a tourist town where you’ll also find the Riviera Maya’s best shopping, dining and nightlife.
The Riviera Maya is one of the world’s best destinations for scuba diving and snorkeling. The second largest coral reef system in the world expands just off the coast and home to an array of marine life. Besides diving in the ocean, you’ll also experience the unique Yucatan cenotes (underground sink holes), for the most amazing dips, snorkeling, and diving.
There’s no better destination for ecotourism activities in Mexico than the Riviera Maya. Outside of the major developed tourist destinations, much of the land remains undeveloped so the natural beauty of the Riviera Maya and the natural wildlife that inhabit the area flourishes. Local eco-parks offer a taste of all that the area has to offer in controlled, family-friendly environments including Xcaret ecotourism park, and the aquatic ecotourism park of Xel-Ha.
The Riviera Maya is an area rich in history, culture, and tradition. Your destination wedding guest’s can participate in a traditional temazcal (Mayan swat lodge) ceremony at many of the resorts whom offer this spa service.

A few hours drive inland, the UNESCO World Heritage Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza are arguably the best restored and most impressive of the Yucatán Maya archaeological sites.
From the Riviera Maya you’ll have easy access for a day trip via ferry from Playa del Carmen to visit the Caribbean island of Cozumel where you and your wedding guests will enjoy world-class scuba diving, snorkeling and aquatic sports, or, simply spend the day relaxing on the beach.
No matter what you're looking for your destination wedding, the Riviera Maya is jam-packed with adventure, world class destination wedding resorts, top-class tourist facilities, unmatched stunning destination wedding venues, and romantic opportunities at every corner.
