From fiesta colours and cultural wonders to palm-fringed beaches and marine adventures, Mexico is magical. This is a country rich in culture, colour and contrasts. Experience one of the 7 Wonders of the World at Chichen Itza, stroll through streets lined with colonial architecture, and keep your holiday spirits high with the delicious local cuisine and tequila. Or make a beeline for the ocean and discover why Mexico’s beach resorts are beloved around the world.
Couples will adore the Yucatán Peninsula which stretches across the south-east of the country, bordering both the glorious Gulf of Mexico and the fabled cerulean waters of the Caribbean. Home to the ancient Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza and honeymoon hotspot Riviera Maya in the north-east — where Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum are located — this is a paradise of natural and manmade wonders.
For a destination wedding in Mexico, a civil ceremony is the only one legally recognised (and same-sex marriages are now legal in around half the country). Heart set on charming church nuptials? A little extra planning will deliver the “I do” of your dreams in this intoxicating escape.
