Too often lumped in with North America, Mexico is a country that stands out on its own.

Hello!

I am thinking of getting married somewhere warm, fun, tropical, and by a beautiful beach.
I'm not really that concerned with the wedding part of it, but more so that I want to have a good time with family and friends..like a little vacation where we can go to the beach, eat, drink, and just have fun.

Does anyone have suggestions of a place in Mexico that would be good? Not TOO off the beaten path, since people will be flying in from around the US. ..but maybe not something super touristy like Cancun.

I am usually "anti-resort" but this would be one time when a resort would be good.

Any suggestions appreciated!! :) thanks!

Puerto Vallarta, not Nuevo Vallarta which is like Cancún, has much more charm and has the best restaurants in Mexico, second only to Mexico City. I would suggest the south part of the bay, the south side of town is also nice. For more info, see my site below.

I was recently in Puetro Morelos for a destination wedding. Close to Cancun (30 minutes south of the airport by bus) and at the northern end of the Mayan Riviera. I really liked the area and was told that Puetro Morelos is a bit of a throwback (a still-operating fishing village) that recalls the Mayan Riviera of 20 or 30 years ago.

It was beautiful — and a couple of hours away from Chichen Itza — perfect for a day trip!

My mother likes Xihuatenajo. Its touristy, but not totally cancun-ed out. It has big hotels and smaller ones, not to mention plenty of beach,

Other than that, there are many smaller resort areas that I'm sure are good.

Also, the Tulum area is started to get built up, and it has some pretty great beaches. Myself, I'd aim for the Gulf of Mexico side, because the Pacific rip-tides can tear apart the casual water-wader. Surfers seem to like it.

I think the beaches in the Yucatan are the most beautiful. There are plenty of beautiful beaches that aren't so crowded, yet not too far from Cancun. Holbox and Isla Mujeres are a couple of examples. You can't beat the beauty of a Caribbean beach!!

Puerto Morelos is truly a great place and has huge variety of tourists’ attraction. Lots of interesting spots close by to visit. Their restaurants have great variety of food and one of my favorite restaurants is Los Gauchos.

Oooh I hope I'm not too late here!
One of my best friends had her wedding in Cancun and it was -beautiful-. Makes me seriously consider it myself (if I can ever get the boyfriend to propose! lol).
They went the all inclusive route also (which is totally the way to go in this situation since so much is taken care for you). I am pretty sure they booked their stay with these guys - akumal hotels.
Check them out and see if they have something right for you guys!

Good luck and congratulations!! :)

You might find some useful advice here
http://gomexico.about.com/od/gettingmar ... Mexico.htm

Normally I prefer more independant travel but with a wedding I think you will have enough to organise and a resort is the best way do go. There are lots of beautiful resorts to choose from appart from cancun, have you looked here http://www.hotelreservation.com/ ? There are many other resorts on the Yucatan Peninsula http://wikitravel.org/en/Yucatan_Peninsula that would be a bit smaller than Cancun but hace the same coastline.

I'm sure I'm too late here, but for the others that find this thread, I just went to my friends wedding in Los Cabos. We stayed at an all inclusive and had a marvelous time there. They got married on Lovers Beach in Cabo . . .I'll never forget getting out of the pange we hired to take us there. Our bridesmaid dresses were hitched up as high as they could go so they didn't get soaked!

Beautiful.

I'd recommend Tulum or Holbox. But, as someone who just got married here, I'd recommend going through a hotel/planner who can help you with all of the paperwork. It's not that difficult but can be time consuming if you try to do it all on your own.

If you are thinking of going to Mexico, I'd just go ahead and go to a Caye off of Belize instead. There are a number of simply beautiful cayes that are available off the coast for about hour boat taxi, and Belize is REALLY natural (simply gorgeous). There are a lot of amazing resorts that are more secluded and have as beautiful beach as Cancun (considering how close they are).
Netherlands in April, Pacific Northwest in June, then on up to work at the family business, a Victoria BC hotel for tourist season... then a hop over to Montreal for the fall (hopefully)! A traveler's life for me!
