Cancun features the famous "hotel zone" where some of the most popular resorts in Mexico reside, on powder white sand beaches contrasting turquoise blue water! There is an abundance of great resort options in Cancun for your wedding. You can choose from ultra-chic & modern, to more laid-back and casual. Cancun has more nightlife, shopping, and powder white sand beaches, but you’ll also face more crowded beaches and resort areas.
The Riviera Maya is about 30 minutes and beyond south of Cancun and resorts here are more spacious and spread out from each other. The beaches are a little more natural here, due to protections set up by law to protect the natural coral and beach areas. The resort venues here in Riviera Maya, are going to give you a less crowded atmosphere and a more authentic natural vibe.
Do you want a poolside cabana, maybe a beach cabana? How about a private terrace with an ocean view, or an infinity pool that looks like it disappears into the ocean? Well, you can have all of this and more at one of the many fantastic resort properties here in Los Cabos. Luxury is the main focus at many of these resorts which is a win for both you and your guests! These resorts also have some alluring and brilliant wedding packages to give you a dream destination “I Do”.
Turks and Caicos:
There's a nice variety of fantastic resort wedding venues in Turks & Caicos, especially on Grace Bay in the Providenciales. These resort wedding venues offer amazing wedding packages, luxurious accommodations and great activities for both you and your guests.
You’ll have a wide range of accommodations to meet every budget for your destination wedding. You can go ultra-high-end or beautiful & balanced with many resort wedding venues St. Lucia has to offer. All of these resorts will do a great job for your destination wedding, it just depends on your style and budget.
While I usually recommend doing a symbolic wedding, for most locations, St. Lucia is one of the easier Caribbean locations to get legally married in.
PROS: Bucket list excursions and activities that will make lasting memories for your wedding.
CONS: St. Lucia is in the southern Caribbean, so it is about a 5-6 hour flight from the states. St. Lucia is more expensive than other locations in the Caribbean
Costa Rica is home to many unique and beautiful resort wedding venues. You can host your wedding at a beachfront resort, or at a resort tucked away in a jungle paradise, it really depends on what you and your wedding group are looking for. All of the resort companies in Costa Rica have great wedding packages and accommodations to give you a wedding you’ve always dreamed of.
When deciding where to get married in Jamaica you’ll want to consider the best fit for you and your wedding guests. For example, if you are more of a lively party type of crowd, and don’t want a long drive to your resort, then Montego Bay is a great location for your wedding as most resorts are within 5 minutes of the airport and there are some beautiful beach locations. Montego Bay is known for its shopping and nightlife as well.
If you are looking for a perfect beach, and a more relaxing vibe, then Negril could be just the spot. And if you like more mountainous terrain near some of Jamaica’s most famous activities, such as Mystic Mountain with the Bobsled ride, and Dunns River Falls, then a resort in the Ocho Rios area may be more to your liking. No matter what area of Jamaica you choose, there will be a resort wedding venue that will give you everything you need for a dream destination “I Do!”
The Dominican Republic has some of the newest and most sophisticated wedding resort venues in the world. Because the Dominican Republic is a relatively newer player in the tourism industry, compared to Mexico or some of the other more popular tourist locations, new resorts on some of the most amazing beaches and properties are still being built for an amazing experience for both of you and all of your guests! You can relax and know that there is a resort venue in the Dominican Republic that will give you a magical wedding day!
