      oh yeah isla de la pasion ! i loved it and it was my fi's top choice venue. someone just asked me about it on weddingbee so ill paste my reply (it might have been you, who knows!)


      we visited at night (had a few problems with our schedule) but it was really lovely. completely private, really soft silky sand.


      i think the menu is buffet only rather than plated, and it mentions a lot of seafood but they say they can work with food requests.I didnt go a food tasting as we ended up going with a different venue

       

      Its all sand so you would have to rent a dance floor for dancing. There is a lot of space so can be adapted for bigger/smaller weddings. The palapa is pretty spacious and there are plastic sheets that can be pulled down in the event of rain or strong wind. In terms of bathrooms there are quite a few, I think was 3 sets of double bathrooms for both men and women. they are approx 3mins walk from reception site
      Private event times start from 5pm, which should give enough time for a ceremony in daylight.You can probably have a day time wedding too but there may be people around on the day trips

       

      The only drawback is all the guests would have to spend one night in cozumel - as the boat takes people from la isla to cozumel and by then it would be too late to get the ferry (well, if its a late reception) i dont think it would be possible to get them back to playa del carmen/cancun but not 100% sure

      The lady who worked there (i think her name was meliza?)was really friendly and she took us to the little cabin where the bride and groom stay on the wedding night. Its a 2 bedroom cabin all made of wood with a sitting area and and hammocks outside. Its sort of rustic but romantic.has AC and fans

       

      we actually saw a small wedding there and it looked great. they had a DJ playing and some simple flowers and it looked great!
      I think itd be a really great place. If we hadnt already have chosen a hotel in playa del carmen (so logistically getting guests back would be hard), and my father didnt turn green every time i mentioned boats we might have chosen it

        Hi Emma,

         

        We live on Cozumel full-time and have been to Isla Pasion several times. It's a pretty cool venue. Very private, with an outstanding beach.

         

        I wouldn't worry about where your guests stay, there are several hotels/resorts on the north side of the island that can accommodate everyone. Check out Hotel B or the Coral Princess. The Melia and Playa Azul are also on the north end near the dock of Isla Pasion.

         

        The great thing about the location, which you can't get on the mainland, is that the beach faces west and you'll get beautiful photos with the sun setting over the Caribbean.

         

        Just like these that we shot a little south of Isla Pasion last Saturday night.

         

        Don't hesitate to contact us if you need more information about Cozumel.

         

        Best of luck,

        Jennifer

            , Hi, Thanks for the info! I have now chosen a hotel in playa del Carmen too.. Because of the boat times all my guests would have had to leave the island at 8pm which was to early, a shame because it looks perfect!
