Playa del Carmen Wedding Photographer | Cancun Wedding Photographer
Here is part 2 to our choices for the best Riviera Maya Wedding venues. The first post included the northern part of the Riviera Maya including Isla Mujeres, Playa Mujeres, Cancun and Puerto Morelos. The post will include the strip from just north of Playa del Carmen to Tulum. It’s not easy to choose from the resorts along this gorgeous strip of beach, but these are our favorites.
THE VICEROY RESORT – just north of Playa del Carmen
We love this small, classy boutique resort. The Viceroy has great rooms, a terrific restaurant, helpful staff and a good location near Playa. It’s not all-inclusive or massive in size, so it feels more intimate and private. Choose from the nice beach or the pier (for small groups) for a ceremony or creative photos.
AZUL FIVES by Karisma – just north of Playa
Just to the south of The Viceroy is Azul Fives. They have a nice beach and pier, with some cool architectural spots. One of the best things about this resort is the room they have for rainy days. The big windows that look out into the jungle make a lovely backdrop that most resorts don’t offer for rainy day weddings. In addition, the restaurants here are good and the tequila bar offers really good micro brews from the local Mundo Maya micro brewery.
VILLA BELLAMAR- Akumal
Akumal is a great spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of Playa del Carmen. If you have a smaller group, Villa Bellamar is private and it features with a spectacular wedding coordinator, Andrea Salazar, who hires a terrific bar and kitchen crew. We really like working here for the privacy and the intimacy it offers the wedding party.
ANA Y JOSE CHARMING HOTEL / ANA Y JOSE BEACH CLUB – Tulum
Ana y Jose is one of the best boutique resorts in the Riviera Maya, and they have one of the nicest beach clubs in a separate location. The beach club has a very large palapa area in case you end up with a rainy day. The hotel has wonderful rooms and cabañas, a great restaurant, fantastic pool, bar and beach.
NUEVA VIDA DE RAMIRO – Tulum
Nueva Vida de Ramiro is a cool spot in a quiet stretch of Tulum’s beach. Perfect for a small group and a small wedding. The vegetation and cabañas here are pretty special.
