    Hi I am interested in having a church wedding that can fit 50-75 people comfortably. A church with AC is a must. Is there a church/chapel in playa del Carmen that can make this possible?

    Hello! My SIL got married in Playa del Carmen, she said there is only one Catholic church in the area. Your local priest at your church can help you with the details and the arrangements, she said they went through their local priest, had to go to marriage classes and go through all the traditional steps first. Also the ceremony and all paperwork was in Spanish. That's all the info I have for you, sorry I don't have more, hopefully it's a little helpful to you!

      In Playa del Carmen the most "famous" chapel is Capilla de Nuestra Señora del Carmen. Your best bet is to work with a wedding coordinator who knows the ins and outs of working with the parrish and who can assist with details such as decor, etc.. (Have a look at all our Del Sol Photography Riviera Maya church weddings). 


      Here are a few of our photos from the church...










      You can see more in our gallery .


      Other options that are outside of Playa del Carmen include Amarte Maroma, Xcaret Park and Capilla de Santa Maria del Secreto.


      Happy planning!

        In short, I have done similar research

        Grab Caribe Real
        Moon Palace Cancun
        Dreams Tulum
        Grand Pallidium Kantenah
        Barcelo Maya Palace
        Riu Palace Rivera Maya
        Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya
        Valentin Imperial Maya
        Xcaret Park
        Amarte Maroma Beach (not all inclusive)

        This is my list of all if the places I found that do Catholic weddings. I hope this helps!

          There are 3 Catholic Churches in Playa del Carmen that I would reccommend. 


          5th Avenue

          15th Ave and 12th Street


          And...if you are REALLY looking for a big beautiful Catholic Church there is one in the more local area of Playa but gorgeous and BIG!


          Let me know if you need any assistance and I will be happy to help. :)
