Of course, you want your wedding day to be as perfect as possible. It's the moment where you and your partner declare your eternal love for each other while surrounded by friends and family, and officially begin your life together as a married couple.
For this, the wedding venue is crucial since the location sets the tone for the entire event. From the ceremony to the reception, it's essential that you choose a place that you and your partner love and that makes the day feel like a dream come true.
Mexican beaches are among the favorite destinations to get married. A beach wedding will always be magical, but there's a difference between getting married in the Caribbean and the Pacific, as each destination has its own characteristics and charms.
At Velas Resorts, we have properties in the top four beach wedding destinations in Mexico: Riviera Maya, Riviera Nayarit, Puerto Vallarta, and Los Cabos. Which of these fabulous locations will be your perfect match? Find out below.
The Riviera Maya is one of the most stunning coastal regions in the world. Known for its white-sand beaches and the turquoise blue sea of the Caribbean, it's an unforgettable place to say "I do."
Beyond its pristine beaches, it's also home to natural beauties such as cenotes, underground rivers, and lagoons immersed in the jungle. Furthermore, the fascinating Mayan culture is present to this day, witnessed in the traditions, cuisine, and impressive archaeological sites in the area, such as Tulum, Cobá and Chichén Itzá.
Among all this magic is our luxurious Grand Velas Riviera Maya resort, where we offer whimsical settings to get married. From terraces facing the sea and tropical gardens to luxurious ballrooms, the charm of the Riviera Maya will be part of your big day.

Close to Puerto Vallarta sits another lovely coastal area on the Mexican Pacific: the Riviera Nayarit. Here, the sea shifts to an emerald green, and the sand becomes a bright gold.
With more than 185 miles of pure beach, the Riviera Nayarit has a variety of quaint destinations that range from bohemian towns to luxury resorts. The fascinating nature that can be found here, as is the case with the dazzling Marietas Islands, make it a magnet for traveling souls ready for adventure.
This wonderful setting is among the best places to get married in Mexico. Here, in the exclusive destination of Nuevo Vallarta, our Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit resort takes the all-inclusive concept of luxury to another level, offering spectacular locations for high-end weddings, against the backdrop of the Sierra Madre mountains and the sea. It can't get better than this.
Puerto Vallarta is one of the top beach destinations in Mexico. Its main charm lies in its pleasant atmosphere and Mexican architectural style, with cobblestone streets decorated by art galleries, cafes, bars, and a fabulous food scene. All this, surrounded by lush jungle and golden beaches.
Our two properties in Puerto Vallarta are located in the exclusive area of Marina Vallarta: Casa Velas and Velas Vallarta.
Casa Velas is our adults-only boutique hotel, located just minutes away from the beach. With an intimate atmosphere, it's an oasis for couples for their big day, with available settings poolside, in the gardens, the beach club, or in a grand ballroom.
On the other hand, Velas Vallarta is a family resort on the beach, with a bit more movement. Its beautiful wedding venues include beachfront spaces, terraces, gardens, ballrooms, and a pier for intimate ceremonies.

A unique landscape that combines desert with mountains and sea can leave everyone in awe. These spectacular natural settings are the main attraction of Los Cabos, which has become one of the most exclusive beach destinations in the country.
Nestled between the warmth of the desert and the blue tones of the Sea of Cortez are our two properties in Baja: Grand Velas Los Cabos and Mar del Cabo.
Grand Velas Los Cabos is our high-end resort where you'll find wedding locations that combine glamor with the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape.
Next door is Mar del Cabo, our exclusive boutique hotel in Los Cabos that offers gardens and terraces with fabulous sea views from every angle.
