We’ve done a lot of weddings in the Riviera Maya. And from most of the hotels there’s a shuttle that runs into Playa.

If you are looking for an adult only all inclusive, I believe you’ll find more options in Riviera Maya. Cabo is nice, but you’ll likely find more swimmable beaches in Riviera Maya as well.

We travel to Mexico frequently. You can find a lot of resort photos on our Facebook page. And the wedding photo on the from page of our site is from one of our weddings in Rivera Maya.

Please let me know if we can be of assistance.

  • Wedding: August 2010

I am getting married this August at El Dorado Spa resort in Riviera Maya. It is about 15 mins from playa del carmen , is adults only and super nice. Also very big so I felt like for my 46 guests it would accomadate everyone! I am getting great deals and rates and am doing a full wedding and ceremony for under 5 grand!

I am!  What are you looking for in a venue?  Are you look for beach side or private garden ceremony?  I would totally recommend the grand palladium.  Check out palladium addicts site there is a ton of info on there.

You’ll probably find better value with flights / resort in PDC than Cabo. I love PDC – they’ve finished the beach renovation now and it’s HUGE plus the town itself has lots to offer. Take a look at Playacar palace – its walking distance to the town and right next to the ferry to Cozumel. Would be a perfect venue for wedding…

I’m getting married in Playa del Carmen – The Royal/Gran Porto Real. Those resorts offer beach, gazebo and Church options. I plan on about 30-40 people and the resorts offer private and semi-private receptions. 

Good luck with your decision!

@ElenaP – Our wedding will be at the Gran Porto Real (the sister resort). We’re staying there for two nights then moving to the Royal for the Honeymoon portion of the trip. 

You’re correct that the guests from the Royal can go to the Gran Porto and guests of the Gran Porto cannot go to the Royal. 

Our deciding factor in choosing a resort were the two resorts. We felt it gave guests more options. The Gran Porto is kid-friendly and less expensive while the Royal is adults-only and more luxurious. Our guests will have to pay enough to come to begin with, we didn’t want to require them to stay at the Royal, or leave kids at home. But we also wanted to give guests who wanted a quieter setting to have that option as well.
