    The wedding is one of the most anticipated moments of our lives: we dream of celebrating a day full of love and joy with our future spouse in the company of our family and loved ones. That’s why choosing the perfect destination is one of the most important decisions. How about getting married in the Riviera Maya in Mexico with Experiencias Xcaret?

    Both Cancun and Riviera Maya are internationally recognized for being perfect destinations to get married: with dream locations overlooking the Caribbean Sea, accommodation options that suit every budget and a variety of providers and wedding planners that will make sure your only worry is to enjoy your wedding day.

    Cancún and Riviera Maya are very popular tourist destinations worldwide, therefore, we have received families from many different countries with very specific ideas for their wedding, so you can be confident that in Riviera Maya, we have experience in making dreams come true.

    The authentic and completely different experience was unbelievable! Guests are able to see another side of Mexican culture in a truly majestic venue.

    The most common types of ceremony held in Cancun and Riviera Maya are: Catholic Ceremony (through a Catholic Priest), Religious Ceremony (spiritual ceremony with no legal value), Civil Ceremony (officiated by a judge of the Civil Registry) and one that’s not very common in other parts of the world, Mayan Ceremony (spiritual and sacred ritual led by a Mayan Shaman).

    The Mayan Ceremony is perfect for vow renewals or just to celebrate the union with your partner in an alternative way. It’s a symbolic link led by a Mayan Shaman in the original language. This ceremony has no legal value but recovers our traditions and Hispanic roots.

    There are two important things to consider when planning a wedding: the day of the event and the photos and video that will make this day unforgettable. Depending on the availability of the couple, the wedding photo shoot can be performed either the day of the event before or days later. One trend we see much in Riviera Maya is photo sessions under water, better known as trash the dress. Take advantage of the natural beauty of the cenotes and underground rivers of Quintana Roo for dream photo locations with the love of your life.

    Xcaret Park is one of the favorite places for couples to carry out weddings in the Riviera Maya, not only because of the variety of locations that are available but the personalized service we offer.

    Which is your dream wedding location?
