Incredible Places for Mexican Destination Weddings

Noting the global trend for concept destination weddings with a highly experiential component, we provide here a roundup of some of the most unusual Mexican destinations for tying the knot: an island, a cenote (natural well, or sinkhole), on the open seas, or even a bullring, the forest or amid desert dunes.

Isla de la Pasión is a small peninsula at the north end of Cozumel Island, in Quintana Roo state. In addition to the natural beauty found throughout the Mexican Caribbean, it has a highly symbolic history associated with love. After marrying, the Maya came to this place to celebrate the nuptials and start their families.

Quinta Real Zacatecas has an ancient bullring that has been restored to form part of this luxury hotel, which preserves its colonial architecture. Because of its originality and unique beauty, the hotel has been awarded an International Architecture Award. Without a doubt it is an eccentric place to say “I do.”

Natural well (or cenote, in Spanish) weddings in the Yucatan Peninsula are increasingly popular, either as part of a Maya ceremony with pre-Hispanic roots, a contemporary religious ceremony (neither valid in a legal sense) or an official civil ceremony. Cenote X- Batún and Hacienda San Pedro Ochil are just two lovely venues for holding banquets and parties.

Salamayuca desert weddings, in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, afford exceptional scenery for perfect wedding photos among the fine, stylized dunes. Nearby installations—with terrace and swimming pool—offer spectacular professional installations.

Open seas weddings are very much in demand along the Mexican coast, where hotel zones offer exceptional options and the perfect climate. Wedding planners can hire yachts and plan everything necessary for a nautical and intimate wedding with the open sea as witness.  Acapulco, Guerrero is a top destination for this type of ceremony.


Valle de Bravo forest weddings can be held in such venues as the Rosmarino Forest Garden, south of the city, which combines nature with luxury installations. In the state of Mexico, the area around Valle de Bravo offers a large number of venues that are so perfectly suited for weddings and social events that they allow the protagonists to focus solely on the unforgettable experience.
