Mexico is an easy place to be inspired by. 

The food, culture, and natural beauty alone bring tens of millions of tourists annually. 

What most tourists may not realize, however, is that many of Mexico’s world-class resorts also feature stunning and unique wedding venues.

A Mexico wedding venue can provide a one-of-a-kind experience for you and your guests and add tropical exuberance to an already special day. 

Picture pristine aquamarine water and palm trees shading your beach-front ceremony. 

After all, your wedding day is the first day of your new life as a married couple, so why not begin this new era somewhere that fills you with excitement, optimism, and enjoyment of life?

There’s a huge variety among Mexico’s many unique venues, making it hard to choose just one. 

As experts in the art of the Mexico destination wedding, we know that a common cure for analysis paralysis is a healthy dose of inspiration. 

Learning more about the kinds of venues available can help you envision yourself in surroundings that resonate with your dream destination wedding. 

Here are some inspirational Mexico wedding venues:

Dreams Tulum – Secret Garden

One resort with a true hidden gem venue is Dreams Tulum, only five minutes from downtown Tulum. 

Resort Overview 

Dreams Tulum is a family-friendly, AAA, four-diamond resort and an all-inclusive haven for all tastes, with an on-site spa and plenty of poolside fun. 

There are six à la carte restaurants, seven bars, and lounges for those interested in gourmet food and a touch of nightlife. 

Of course, the swim-up bar is the perfect way to do both at the same time. 


Wedding package overview

Dreams Tulum offers five wedding packages at a range of price points, starting at $999 for the simple Weddings in Paradise package. 

At the high end, you can live your Mexican destination wedding fantasy and host up to 100 guests with the Beyond Memorable wedding package for $14,799. 

The great news is their most affordable package can even be complimentary when you meet particular criteria. 

All packages include the fundamentals of an on-site wedding coordinator, symbolic ceremony, bouquets and boutonnieres, wedding cake, and spa benefits. 

Dreams Tulum also offers a special package for this venue, valued at $6,999, which includes a cocktail hour and reception dinner for up to 40 guests, along with other additional features. 

Venue overview and highlights

The Secret Garden at Dreams Tulum places your ceremony among the lush tropical jungle, surrounded by native flora and the sounds of birds. 

This area is suitable not only for ceremonies but also for immersive and atmospheric cocktail parties and gatherings. 

Secrets Moxché – Sky Wedding Gazebo

Secrets Moxché is an adults-only resort in the heart of the Riviera Maya in popular Playa del Carmen. 

Resort Overview 

This resort boasts 485 lavish suites and a AAA, five-diamond status. 

With seven pools and three built cenotes, guests can experience the region’s beauty while enjoying unique dining selections. 

You can read my full review of Secrets Moxché here.



Wedding package overview

Under the same banner as the Dreams Resorts, and as part of the Hyatt group, Secrets Moxché offers the same range of wedding packages but with slightly different pricing. 

The most affordable option, the Weddings in Paradise package, also costs $999 (or is complementary when you meet particular criteria). 

Because the Sky Wedding Gazebo can only host a maximum of 60 guests, the most extensive package possible is the Beyond Memorable package for the 50–79 guest range, priced at $9,499.

These wedding packages also feature the same inclusions as the Dreams resorts.


Venue overview and highlights

The Sky Wedding Gazebo puts an unforgettable ocean vista behind the lucky couple, surrounded by the bright blue waters on the rooftop infinity pool. 

This venue also offers a stunning backdrop for cocktail parties, with the wooden accents providing a warm and rustic feel. 

Generations Riviera Maya – Pier

Generations Riviera Maya is one of our all-time favorite family-friendly resorts, only a 25-minute drive from Cancun

Resort Overview 

This all-suite, all-oceanfront, all-gourmet, all-inclusive resort ticks virtually every box for an unforgettable getaway and special day. 

With plenty of kids-only and adults-only activities, there’s something for everybody at Generations Riviera Maya. 

If swim-up suites and seemingly endless gourmet food options entice you, Generations Riviera Maya is one of our favorite destination wedding resorts.


Wedding package overview

Some top Cancun wedding packages can be found at Generations Riviera Maya, starting with a complimentary Always and Forever package when couples meet the necessary criteria. 

When not complementary, this package costs $1,399. 

Generations offers the Ultimate Memorable Moments package for $9,999 for a no-expense-spared wedding extravaganza. 

Generations Resorts also offers elaborate South Asian wedding packages for $19,999. 


Venue overview and highlights

The pier at Generations Riviera Maya offers a 180-degree view of the surrounding ocean from its quaint wooden pier that extends over the water. 

While this platform creates a space for personal and intimate ceremonies, it can still host up to 200 guests

It’s also suitable for a seated dinner of up to 100 guests and makes for a cocktail party venue with immersive views of Cancun’s coast.  

Dreams Natura – Infinity Pool

Dreams Natura is another stunning, family-friendly, all-inclusive destination wedding spot in a jungle setting only 10 minutes from Cancun airport.

Resort Overview 

Dreams Natura takes full advantage of its picturesque location nestled among tropical jungle while facing a postcard-worthy white sand beach. 

Guests love watching nightly entertainment in the theater or rejuvenating in the Now Spa by Pevonia, designed to reflect the striking beauty of Mexico’s cenotes.


Wedding package overview

Dreams Natura offers the same wedding packages as other Dreams resorts, starting with the Weddings in Paradise package at $999 (or even complimentary when satisfying specific criteria).

If you’re planning a larger destination wedding, we recommend the Beyond Memorable package for up to 100 guests at $14,799. 

Similarly, all packages include symbolic ceremony fundamentals, including a cake and sparkling wine toast, bouquets and boutonnieres, and spa benefits.

Venue overview and highlights

This unique venue places your ceremony on a glass platform extending over their infinity pool. 

Without a doubt, this is one of the most visually striking venues for a wedding.

There’s also endless entertainment for kids with the on-site splash park, supervised kids and teens clubs, and splash safari. 


Wedding package overview

Royalton Riviera Cancun offers a Just the Two of Us wedding package for a romantic elopement for $699. 

They also offer a Luxury Complementary Wedding for up to 10 guests valued at $9,999 if you don’t want to meet the criteria for it to be complementary. 

The luxurious and comprehensive Exclusive Wedding package is at the other end of the scale, priced at $11,199. 

Venue overview and highlights

Hosting your wedding at one of the two Sky Wedding rooftop terraces involves a $1,500 add-on to whatever package you choose, including complimentary weddings. 

This extra cost is well worth the sweeping views of the Riviera Cancun’s aquamarine coastline and locally inspired decor. 

The Sky Wedding is suitable for all ages, while the Sky Wedding at Hideaway is a nearly identical adults-only alternative. 

Hotel Xcaret – The Caves

Hotel Xcaret is a prime location for a family-friendly destination wedding in Mexico, combining modern and traditional design.

Resort Overview 

This five-diamond, AAA-awarded hotel offers some of the most fascinating and immersive architecture, taking inspiration from its Mayan history and modern sensibilities. 

Hotel Xcaret’s pools are scenic, and its restaurants deliver world-class gourmet gastronomy. 

One of the defining features of Xcaret is its connection to nature and tradition, giving guests a unique entry point to Mexico’s jungle, ocean, and history. 


Wedding package overview

Hotel Xcaret offers three wedding packages. 

The most affordable is the True Love Package, comprising the fundamental ceremony elements (including a wedding planner and minister), ‌followed by the Celebration Package, which includes a cocktail party and other additional details. 

Xcaret’s top-tier package is the Deluxe Package, which adds a reception dinner and open bar. 

Venue overview and highlights

Hotel Xcaret’s caves are a unique environment for a one-of-a-kind ceremony, reception, or cocktail party. 

These caves are carved right into the naturally occurring rock and resemble the area’s famous cenotes to add extra character to the “destination” part of a destination wedding. 

Secrets Tulum – Cenote Poolside Terrace

This brand-new resort, Secrets Tulum, is an adults-only oasis of luxury in the coastal Mexican jungle. 

Resort Overview 

Secrets Tulum is coming to life this year in the tropical surroundings of the jungle and is just a short shuttle ride away from its beach club, giving guests the best of both worlds. 

A lazy river connects its cenote-style pools, and guests can soak up the tropical sun in the exclusive rooftop lounge with a pool and swim-up bar.  

Of course, a Secrets resort would be incomplete without a world-class spa by Pevonia. 


Wedding package overview

As with Secrets Moxché, the entry-level Weddings in Paradise package is priced at $999 (or complimentary), while the top-end Beyond Memorable package for up to 100 guests costs $14,399. 

These come with the same inclusions for a beautiful symbolic ceremony, such as a wedding cake and sparkling wine toast, bouquets and boutonnieres, special spa offers, and the services of an on-site wedding coordinator.

Wedding package overview

As a part of the Karisma Hotels group, El Dorado Maroma’s three core packages are in line with its offerings.

Venue overview and highlights

El Dorado Maroma features some of the best beach venues in The Riviera Maya, capable of hosting up to 80 people for ceremonies and reception dinners right there on the sand.

Garza Blanca Preserve – Tierra Luna Terrace

Another top family-friendly resort on the western coast of Mexico is the Garza Blanca Preserve in Puerto Vallarta. 

Resort Overview 

Garza Blanca Preserve is a five-star, four-diamond hotel nestled between the jungle and the southern coast of the Puerto Vallarta region. 

Whether you’re the type to unwind in the world-class spa or step up for a guided hike through the Sierra Madre mountains, there’s no shortage of ways to have an unforgettable experience.

A top choice for those seeking a family-friendly resort, Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit is as stunning as they come. 

Resort Overview

Another top choice in the Puerto Vallarta area, but this time in the north, is this Grand Velas resort, the only all-inclusive resort on the Mexica Pacific awarded five diamonds by the AAA. 

The “Beyond All Inclusive, Beyond All Compare” concept of the Grand Velas Resorts provides guests top-of-the-line amenities, spectacular views, gourmet cuisine, and action-packed recreation.  


Wedding package overview

Rather than offering wedding packages, Grand Velas takes a more customized approach, working closely with your in-house wedding coordinator to design your perfect celebration of union. 

Their wedding coordinators are certified and experienced in planning Christian, LGBTQ+, South Asian, and Jewish weddings. 

Grand Velas only hosts one wedding daily, ensuring your wedding is the main event.

Of course, being on the West Coast means this beach is the perfect spot for exchanging vows in front of the setting sun.

Grand Velas Riviera Maya – Zen Pool Terrace

Another top resort from the same group is the Grand Velas Riviera Maya, this time back on the East Coast. 

If you watched season 5 of Love Is Blind, you may recognize Grand Velas Riviera Maya — it’s where the couples spent time after being in the pods!

Resort Overview 

Grand Velas Riviera Maya offers three separate classes for different experiences. 

The Grand class focuses on adults-only romance. 

The Ambassador class is family fun, and the Zen Grand offers child-friendly jungle seclusion.

Wedding package overview

As with Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, this resort opts for a personalized approach to arranging your special day. 

You can collaborate on making every detail you want with the same high-level, certified wedding coordinators. 

Also, like the other Grand Velas resorts, your wedding day is yours alone. 

Venue overview and highlights

The Zen Pool Terrace is a tranquil and atmospheric space, surrounded by beautiful green gardens and alongside the pool in Zen Grand Ambiance.

This venue can host 100 guests for a ceremony or reception or 120 for a cocktail hour. 

Breathless Los Cabos – Freestyle pool area

Breathless Los Cabos San Lucas Resort is an adults-only resort in the Los Cabos region of Mexico.

Resort Overview 

Breathless Los Cabos takes a cosmopolitan approach to the Mexican resort experience, offering two infinity rooftop pools, twelve gourmet restaurants and bars, and sophisticated events like fashion shows and sunset soirees. 

The Pevonia Spa offers guests advanced relaxation while DJ pool parties turn the excitement dial up. 


Wedding package overview

The Breathless resorts also fall under the Hyatt group, meaning they offer the chance for destination wedding-seekers to take advantage of their excellent packages even in the region of Los Cabos. 

As with the Secrets and Dreams resorts, Breathless Los Cabos’ offers begin with an entry-level $999 or complimentary package and increase to the more comprehensive package at $14,399 for up to 100 guests.

The Grand at Moon Palace – Grand Gazebo

For an elevated, family-friendly experience of the Riviera Maya, check out The Grand at Moon Palace.

Resort Overview 

With The Grand at Moon Palace, no craving lasts long, as almost every gourmet desire can be satiated in style in one of its ten restaurants. 

The fun kicks off across this resort’s nine pools, twelve bars, and supervised children’s activities, meaning no matter your age, there’s more than one way to have a blast. Of course, relaxation also takes hold in the Awe on-site Spa. 

There’s a reason (okay, like 100 reasons) why the Grand at Moon Palace is one of Mexico’s best destination wedding resorts

I shared my full review of the resort here


Wedding package overview

Like Le Blanc resorts, The Grand at the Moon Palace offers free wedding packages and optional private ceremonies, both of which couples can earn by inviting more guests.
