Mexico offers a wonderful, broad palette of rich possibilities for fabulous destination weddings. Couples are lured by Mexico's flawless white beaches, breathtaking desert landscapes, and near-mystical jungle habitats. Visitors can explore Mayan ruins, vast archaeological sites and other architectural wonders - perfect settings for adventurous couples, looking for a unique and truly remarkable destination wedding. Whether you are looking for deserted beaches, teeming cities, glitzy resorts, or unbelievable flora and fauna, you can find it in Mexico, a country with a remarkable mix of the traditional and the modern, and all manner of fascinating passions.

And there's so much more...vibrant cultural traditions, folklore, arts & crafts, music, incredible food, dazzling dance and exquisite pageantry, elements that make Mexico an irresistible celebration of the senses, and one of the truly special wedding destinations imaginable.

If you are searching for a ceremony and setting with flavors (caliente!) and delights you've only dreamed of, our neighbor "south of the border" may be just right for you. The best months to plan a Mexican destination wedding beachside may be early spring, later for inland areas such as Guadalajara or Mexico City.

Riviera Maya, Mexico

I Don't Know Where I am but I am Mighty Glad to be Here!

No, actually, I am writing from a hammock in front of my cabana, on the beach, by the Caribbean, at Esmeralda K, in Tulum, on the Riviera Maya on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, Central America!!!!!

After 2 days of no sleep, and the re-launch of the new and fabulous DestinationBride, I found myself on a plane with my family on the way to Cancun and the Riviera Maya.

When asked where they wanted to vacation next, my little women had three different answers. Grace said she wanted to see ruins, Olivia said she wanted to go sailing, and Maisie said she wanted to see the jungle. I knew just where to take them...the Yucatan. Yesterday we swam, floated and walked through the jungle at Xcaret, today we saw the ruins in Tulum and we will be sailing and snorkeling around Cozumel and Isla Mujeres over the next two days.

We can't have all play and no work, however....I am always on the look out for  fabulous wedding locations of which I have found even more on this trip AND we are planning a networking party on Monday at the JW Marriott so that I will have the opportunity to meet as many fabulous wedding professionals as possible while I am here.....always thinking.....how can I help connect my readers to great people and places around the world!

Sailing to Isla Mujeres

December 14th, 2008

 

The thought of getting on another boat was not that appealing after our experiences the previous day BUT we were very glad we got ourselves out of bed and to the marina (after multiple U-turns in an attempt to find the marina hidden behind a closed hotel under construction,) When we finally found the right marina, we were met by the Cancun sailing crew. They set us up with snorkel equipment and showed us to our boat. We had chartered a sailboat for 7 hours to take us to Isla Mujeres. When we got to the dock, they pointed and said here is your boat! Glenn and I looked at the boat, and then looked at each other. We were not sure whether to laugh or cry. Let’s just say, the boat was a little tired... but the crew... Zero, yes, Zero, the captain, and José, his first mate, were cheerful and friendly. We set sail and headed for Isla Mujeres. It was a glorious dayas all of the days were. This is a great time to go to the Yucatan, by-the-way, as the weather is warm but not too hot, and there are fewer tourists. About halfway to Isla Mujeres, we picked up a mooring so that we could snorkel on the reef. Guess what?! It was AWESOME!! The waves were calm, the water was clear, and the fish were TEEMING! We didn’t see anything other than fish but we saw lots of them: schools of yellow, gray, blue, and the sea fans were gorgeous.

We continued on to Isla Mujeres for lunch. Again, the island is a neat place to go for a vacation but I would not recommend it for a wedding.  It is not as luxurious as Cancun or as happening as Cozumel but it is a neat getaway. The beaches and water were nice, and the snorkeling was fabulous!
