Destination Wedding in Playa del Carmen

I was talking to a recently engaged friend not long ago who is considering going to Mexico for her wedding; the guest list would be relatively short and the wedding would be intimate. When I asked if she knew where she would want to hold the nuptials she didn't give a moments pause before exclaiming that she would want it to be in Playa del Carmen, one of the most beautiful parts of Mexico.

Widely considered by this same sentiment, Playa del Carmen is a balneario (Latin American seaside resort) city just south of Cancun on the coast of the Caribbean Sea. Known for it's white sandy beaches and sparkling water, the pristine beauty of the area makes it a popular setting for destination weddings.

Originally a small fishing town, Playa del Carmen is said to have some of the best beaches in Mexico. Furthermore, the local community and government have tried hard to retain the area's reputation and setting as a small artists' colony and fishing village, and shied away from becoming a large tourist and metropolitan area like Cancun. This brings a unique charm to the area that would wonderfully complement a small, intimate destination wedding!
