Weddings in Mexico
The stereotypical image of Mexico sees this extraordinary country as populated entirely by poncho and sombrero-adorned, moustachioed bandits munching on fiery enchiladas; slugging on tequila and taking pot-shots at passing ’gringos’ - while soundtracked by a mariachi band! Sure, Mexico can claim a ’Wild West’ past as a small part of its huge history, but has moved on somewhat since those largely lawless days of old! The Mexico of today is a sophisticated, vibrant country of breathtaking beauty and dazzling colour, reliant to a large extent on the tourist trade that its substantial attractions so thoroughly deserve.
As a land in which to stage your wedding or take your honeymoon , Mexico offers a magical setting . Our Mexico wedding and honeymoon packages concentrate on the world-renowned area and resort of Cancun. Situated on the Caribbean at the tip of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun is Mexico’s prime tourist destination , facing out to seas of unimaginable clarity and blueness. Two narrow strips of land, almost at right angles to each other, meet at Punta Cancun and box in the enormous Nichupté Lagoon. This is where the majority of Cancun’s plush hotels are sited, where the majority of the action is to be found and features a magnificent, unbroken 19-mile stretch of white sand beach that attracts millions of sun worshippers every year!
Around and short trips from Cancun, you can delve deep into the ways of the Mayan civilisation, as the Yucatan Peninsula is the gateway to ancient Mexican history. There are many amazing archaeological sites of fascination, plus the essential pyramidal temples that have been impeccably maintained down the centuries.
A land of mystery , passion , romance and perpetual sunshine , Mexico is an ideal destination in which to exchange your vows and set off in life together. Cancun is one of the more lively destinations of all those we offer at White Sand Weddings , but you are assured of beautiful wedding venues in idyllic surroundings before the dancing starts and the tequila starts to flow!
