Quite beach for ceremony? (playa del carmen)

Recommended Posts

Hi all, :)

I am at the VERY beginning of looking into locations but one thing I noticed is in the RM posts almost all are for resort weddings. We are planning to come in by cruise ship and want a early morning wedding with a lunch reception at La cueva del chango.

 

Are there any quite beaches near Playa del Carmen & La cueva del chango? Or should we be looking into having the ceremony at a resort there and going outside for reception?

 

Thanks so much for the help. Carla :)

Hey there!

 

I just went to the website of cueva del chango. So cute!

 

I've been in contact with a few wedding coordinators in the area about beach weddings are there in one that organises beach weddings on a semi-private beach area of Playacar, which is at the other end of where the Cueva is located. Before the resort area of Playacar. I am considering this place if I don't do it as a resort. They're Caribbean Blue Weddings. The quote I recieved was about $1100 and included their fee, use of the location, chairs covered with cloth and ribbons, simple decor, a decorated arch, the ceremony itself and a champagne toast for 30 persons.

 

Ajua Weddings is another organizer that has access to lots of private beaches and they are good about emailing. Their quote was a bit steep for my budget.

 

good luck!

Here's the secret. All the beaches in Mexico are Federal Lands, like a National Park. The first 25 meters of beach are open to everybody, you are free to do as you please there, including getting married. There are several public access points to the beach in Playa del Carmen. The road of Cueva del Chango (Calle Treinta Ocho) is one of these public access points, even though it goes right through Shangri-La. You can enter here and get married right in front of Shangri-La, or you can enter a block north and get married in front of a vacant lot. You're wedding coordinators may, or may not be into doing this since they want you to buy their package.

 

One block north of Cueva del Chango is a public access point and to the left is a vacant lot. In the morning it will likely be empty. It would be a pleasant walk from here to Cueva, which is an awesome restaurant.

In doing research that is one thing that is never mentioned! That really opens up the possibilities then. Carla wink.gif

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
