Many future brides and grooms dream of a beach destination wedding, and although Mexico’s Playa del Carmen might not be on their initial list, it should be!

Who wouldn’t want to be able to describe their wedding day as “magical”? It turns out that’s precisely the meaning of the Mayan word mahekal, and Mahekal Beach Resort lives up to it in every way. The palapa-style resort includes private bungalow accommodations with hammocks on every patio or balcony, three restaurants, four bars, a full-service spa, four pools, 920 feet of beachfront, and endless possibilities.

The friendly resort staff is on hand at all times to make sure guests are comfortable and want for nothing; for those celebrating their special day at Mahekal Beach Resort, the staff truly goes above and beyond. A wedding specialist is assigned to each couple to help guide them through the planning process prior to arrival up to the rehearsal, ceremony, cocktail hour for guests, dinner reception, and more. With three unique packages to choose from, a dreamy destination wedding is possible for any style and budget. Take a look at the Ambar, Jade, and Turquoise packages for more details!

Couples can reserve room blocks for their wedding guests—or if they’re looking for a romantic honeymoon destination after saying “I do” back home, Mahekal Beach Resort has that covered, too. The perfect honeymoon accommodations would be one of the resort’s Ocean Front Casitas, which come with endless beach views, a private plunge pool, and, of course, the resort’s signature hammocks so the happy couple can relax in style. Breakfast and dinner at the resort are always a treat, and room service is available. Meanwhile, the Revive Spa and Fitness center is the perfect spot to enjoy a couple’s massage, facial or other spa treatments, or enjoy a glass of champagne and time in the hot tub. The spa even has an exclusive VIP therapy room with bath, indoor and outdoor showers, and access to a private Zen garden.

For those who want a little more adventure during their stay, Mahekal Beach Resort offers a host of activities, including a dive center. Let the resort’s guides take you on colorful snorkeling or diving excursions in the beautiful Caribbean. Colorful flora, fish, and maybe even sea turtles await! Fishing, snorkeling in nearby cenotes, adventure parks, Mayan ruins, and much more are within an easy drive, and the Mahekal concierge can happily arrange your itinerary.

The resort is also just steps from the charming tree-lined streets of downtown Playa del Carmen, a perfect outing for couples to explore the area and get a taste of Mexico’s exciting culture and local favorites. Authentic restaurants and bars, as well as fabulous shopping on Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue), are must-dos during your stay.

Whether you’re planning a dream destination wedding or just a getaway with someone special, take a look at the jewel of Playa del Carmen along the Caribbean coast of Mexico—Mahekal Beach Resort. It’s sure to be a magical experience!
