Four Amazing Elopement Destinations in Riviera Maya

With so many elopement options in Mexico, how do you choose the right location that fits your style? With Elope to Cancun we offer four areas in Riviera Maya that are UHHHmazing! They’re all accessible from the Cancun airport, and are easy to navigate to and from. So let’s talk about them, shall we?

Cancun is iconic for the miles upon miles of delicious beaches and turquoise blue water. The experiences and activities are endless. For example, swimming with whale sharks, scuba diving, jet skiing, parasailing, or simply having a few cocktails at one of the many outdoor beach bars. The nightlife is vibrant and full of life, and shopping is pretty fabulous too. Resort options range from the mega all-inclusive to the ultra-luxury boutique properties. Here’s a few of our favorite properties and elopement packages.

Isla Mujeres is an island off Cancun, and just a short ferry ride away. There are all-inclusive resorts, laid back casual hotels, quaint dirt pathways, road stands filled with fresh fruits, and a point where both the sunrise and the sunset takes your breath away. I suggest renting a golf cart or scooter and spending the entire day exploring the island. Isla Mujeres has an intimate and casual vibe. The island is easily accessible and also has a low crime rate.

Playa del Carmen is much like Cancun but on a slightly smaller scale. It's all about luxury here, the resorts are stunning with focus on creating an ultra chic experience for you. One of my favorite things about Playa del Carmen are the many excursions you can take advantage of. Xplor Park is a jungle adventure park with zip-lining, amphibious vehicles, rafting, and underground rivers. Say “I do” and then zip-line 40 meters above ground! You can’t visit Playa del Carmen and not hit up 5th Avenue, with its cobblestone streets lined with shops, bars, and restaurants…the experience is very “Viva Mexico!” Check out these amazing beach front luxury elopement packages in Playa del Carmen.

Puerto Morelos is a small fishing village turned tourist attraction only 20 minutes south of Cancun. Here it's a truly a laid back atmosphere with casual beach bars and restaurants dotting the coastline. There's a few establishments that offer music and dancing past 10pm but for the most part, this is a quiet community is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Most hotels are quaint and boutique style and crime is very low. I like this town so much, I choose it as my home.

There aren’t enough positive words to describe Riviera Maya, and the excitement to share it with all of you, is a dream come true for us! The most important moment of your trip will be exchanging your vows, the second are all of the amazing memories you will have together. We can’t wait to help plan your perfect elopement destination in Mexico!
