Wedding Planning along Mexico’s Western Coast

June 19th, 2012

When most people think of having a destination wedding in Mexico, they picture the bright turquoise waters of the Caribbean and the high-rise resorts that populate the eastern portion of the country. While there are attractive mexico beach weddings along these lines, we invite you to consider something a little more intimate, a little lower-key, and a little more in keeping with the family traditions that make Mexico such a unique and warm place to say your “I dos”.

East vs. West Coast of Mexico

Mexico is a large country (in fact, it’s the 15th largest in the world), and the topography is so varied that it’s impossible to break each region down into just one kind of landscape. However, there are some universal things you can count on when looking at the coasts—namely that the eastern beach areas are more in keeping with the bright, lively Caribbean outlook and the western beaches tend to offer a more personalized experience.

On the west coast of Mexico, you won’t find the same crisp waters familiar with Caribbean vacations, and there’s much more in the way of natural coastline that hasn’t been quite as developed by tourism. The local people are warm and friendly, and the costs of accommodations and services are much lower. And because many of the resorts that are available for weddings (including our own Casa de la Sirena) are small enough that you can book the entire place, you can enjoy a level of privacy and comfort unavailable in the larger city settings.
