Sun drenched Mexico is a destination for any kind of wedding. A warm, welcoming local culture, fascinating ancient Mayan ruins and two long coastlines on the Caribbean and the Pacific that boast white sand beaches with every amenity you could imagine, Mexico is a destination wedding dream.
Mexico is a breeze to get to, just a short flight from most places on the west coast of the US. Bask in Cancun’s all-inclusive resorts, browse colorful markets in LGBT-friendly Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, hike Mayan ruins in Riviera Maya, golf or sunbathe in Los Cabos where the desert meets the sea. Wherever you choose, your destination wedding in Mexico will be full of love, laughter, dancing and, of course, lots of tequila. Soak up all the beaches, the culture, the nature, and the romance that Mexico has to offer you.
