Dream Destination Wedding: Xcaret Mexico in Playa del Carmen!

For the March/April 2012 issue of Bridal Guide, out on the stands now, Bridal Guide's fashion department had the luxury of shooting at Xcaret Mexico eco-theme park in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. This is a dream location for the adventurous, nature-loving wedding party. The majestic park by the sea features unique activities such as snorkeling through reefs, ancient Mayan ruins, a butterfly pavilion, flamingos, swimming with the dolphins, relaxing beaches, as well as a nightly show with over 300 actors presenting a cultural history of Mexico—absolutely magical!

Not only is it a picturesque, relaxing environment, it's ideal for destination weddings! Xcaret has several chapels for wedding and group events, as well as a spa for the ladies. The best part about the spa is that you boat up to the spa in one of the floral boats pictured above—How romantic!

For lunch, we had a gorgeous array of authentic Mexican food under a majestic canopy. The fajitas were incredible!! After our shoot, the whole crew visited the animal park zoo and witnessed baby manatees, turtles, jaguars and monkeys. We then visited the House of Mexican Folk art at Xcaret, where we picked up a few amazing souvenirs.

Xcaret Mexico is a unique and incredible place to host a wedding that would provide memories for years to come, and it's sure to please all your guests. Even better, the pictures will look amazing!! I can't wait to visit again as a tourist! Pick up the current issue to learn more.
