A wedding in magical Akumal, Mexico is the perfect way to start your new life together.
Akumal is the Mayan word for place of turtles, and it is aptly named as this is the home of several species of giant sea turtles. In the turquoise blue water of Akumal bay, you will find them swimming and feeding year round along with a host of other tropical fish and gorgeous coral reefs. The mother turtles lay their eggs in the soft sand of the powdered coral beach, and many of our brides have experienced witnessing these tiny babies leaving the nest and making their way to the sea. The tranquility of this beautiful place is due in part to it's location along the second largest coral reef in the world. As the Caribbean Sea collides with this reef, the blue water rolls over the top and then gently makes it's way to the shore. As this is a protected area, brides and their wedding guests can experience snorkeling and diving in a relaxed environment. Other experiences can include an afternoon sailing on a catamran to a secluded beach, fishing in the open Caribbean, dancing to latin music, beach parties, all the sun and soft sand anyone could ask for. The local restaurants offer a variety of fare from fancy to simple local flavors. Local artisans and craftsmen sell their wares in small shops in the town. Everything in Akumal is just a stroll away.
Nearby, there are various ecological attractions including cenotes, jungle tours, Mayan ruins, and excavations. There are also amusement parks, and if a rousing party is what you want, Playa Del Carmen is a short cab or bus ride away, complete with streets lined with shops and restaurants. After a full day you can return to the quiet of Akumal, or, you can spend your entire stay just soaking up the peace and swimming with the turtles.
Choosing between a traditional ceremony, a Mayan spiritual ceremony, or some combination of both, can make your day truly unique. Locations for your ceremony range from on the beach, under palm trees, on a low cliff overlooking the bay, or poolside. Our local vendors are among the best and most reliable, having worked with hundreds of brides, making their wishes come true.
