Destination Wedding: Riviera Maya

Destination Wedding is a growing trend. Probably because in most weddings, the bride is from one place and the groom could be from a faraway state or from another country. So it is just normal and natural for them to look for a neutral territory. Since most guests from both sides will come from different places, it will be some sort of a destination wedding for them too! So why not stage a wedding away from home? Then the newlyweds can take a second week to disappear on their own for their honeymoon.


Riviera Maya provides the perfect environment for your nuptials if you’re looking to have a natural, tropical setting. From Tulum to Playa del Carmen and to other parts of this long tourism strip in Mexico, the whole area is just oozing with all things beautiful, vibrant and exotic blooms. Almost every city offers a full suite of everything that any couple will need for their destination wedding.


Who can resist the the promise of beach-side romance, panoramic landscapes, white sand beaches and other things beyond charming that one can only experience in Riviera Maya? More when you’re sharing the moment with those who are most special to you. Play explorers for the whole time that you’re there and discover the Mayan culture–the magic and beauty that breathe life into this side of Mexico.


Sounds fantastic, huh! It can be quite challenging, however, if you haven’t been to Riviera Maya and clueless on how to spend your limited time and budget. Worry not because our friends at MayanExplore shared the Top 10 things you can do when in Riviera Maya.
