Apart from living from what I love to do, telling amazing love stories as Wedding Photographer in Riviera Maya area. Sometimes I also like to share some tips with people who want to say I do in this magical paradise. So, today I made a list of 5 wedding resorts in Cancun for all types of budgets. There are high, medium and a little tighter budget, but all of them are amazing.

Certainly throwing a wedding in Cancun, sometimes so far from home, is something special. Perhaps the turquoise ocean color and the beautiful white sand, coupled with the relaxed atmosphere makes this paradise a wedding favorite for couples from all over the world for many years. And being part of the wedding industry in the Riviera Maya, it gives me a good opportunity to cover incredible weddings in incredible locations like these wedding resorts in Cancun.

Pros of Planning a Riviera Maya Wedding

Nizuc Luxury Resort

Nizuc is an amazing Luxury award winning resort located at Punta Nizuc in Cancun hotel Zone.

It is a resort with a wonderful vibe, everything is calm. It is a perfect mix between elegance and the ancient Mayan culture.

It is a perfect and private place to have a beautiful seaside wedding in a private setting as it is a bit removed from all the other resorts in the area.

Nizuc is a high-end Cancun wedding resort, but it's definitely worth the investment. From intimate ceremonies to incredible ceremonies full of energy and extravagance can be carried out in this spectacular resort.

Hyatt Ziva Cancun

Wedding Resorts in cancun

What can I say about this resort, it maybe not be the most modern architecture around, but the locations for weddings are amazing. This resort is located in Point Cancun. A Corner of the hotel zone just steps away from the Heart of Cancun Hotel Zone. 

One of its main wedding advantages It has different environments distributed in the property to be able to take a great variety of photographs.

It has two gazebos for weddings. A more modern one with a spectacular view of the sea and the impressive and beautiful Punta Cancun lighthouse. The other gazebo is on the other side and it also has a beautiful ocean view, but the gazebo is built on a rock. Giving you an elevated view over the sea.

In either of the two areas or even on the beach you can perform a spectacular ceremony.

Weddings at this resort are generally held on the beach, but if sand isn't your thing, it has a deck so you can dance your head off without touching the sand.

It is definitely a good option and one of the best wedding resorts in Cancun.

Iberostar Selection Cancun

Cancun wedding resorts

This is a family friendly resort. It is located in one of the most beautiful and extensive beaches in the entire Cancun Hotel Zone, playa delfines. The location of this resort and the spacious property make it an excellent option for your wedding on the beach in Cancun.

It has some very good spots for photography and as I already mentioned it has a spacious beach that is perfect for sessions with the blue sea in the background.

This resort could be considered as a medium wedding budget resort. That does not make it less beautiful and also the service, as in the entire area, is of excellent quality.

Riu Dunamar Hotel

Although the Hotel Riu Dunamar is not located exactly in the Hotel Zone of Cancun, it is not as remote as other resorts in the Riviera Maya. The hotel is located in the relatively new tourist development called Playa Mujeres, about a 30 minute drive from Cancun, but on the opposite side of the Riviera Maya.

The hotel is new, which gives the advantage that the facilities are in good condition. In the same way the service is a pretty good service.

As for having a wedding at the Riu Dunamar hotel, they have different options to carry out your ceremony, but without a doubt you will want to do it in front of the sea. They have a privileged view of Isla Mujeres, and an extensive beach.

To be honest, the beaches in Cancun's hotel zone are a bit bluer and have less of a wattle problem. But it is not a pleasant beach at all, on the contrary, it is a beautiful beach and as I said, the hotel has good facilities.

Paradisus Cancun

This is a Hotel that is very close to the Iberostar Selection, and because of this they share that beautiful and extensive beach. This hotel has a beautiful wooden gazebo set over a garden with a beautiful view of the sea, without a doubt it is something you should consider if your taste for sand is not so much.

The hotel has some very beautiful spots to take pictures in the gardens and that not all the photographs are facing the sea, it has a peculiar architecture, since it is in the shape of a pyramid with a glass dome, something that looks phenomenal in the shots with drone. It is a medium budget hotel according to the offer in other hotels in the area, but without a doubt it is also a great option to carry out your wedding.

Well, there are 5 resorts for weddings in Cancun of the best you can find and with different options.Without a doubt there are many more options, and surely in time I will discover new hotels as I have not had the opportunity to work in all of them.

One of my main tips before you decide in which hotel you will carry out your wedding. Is that you check the fine print of the contract. All, or almost all hotels charge to bring in your own suppliers for your wedding day. From flowers, dj, and of course, photographer. This is because most offer these services under their own brand.

I have heard from my clients that before signing the contracts they do not mention this issue of the fee, these fees can vary from 400USD to 1,200USD for each provider, so that will considerably increase the cost. I recommend you look for a resort with a slightly more relaxed external provider policy. If you like, I can help you with recommendations.
