Casa de la Sirena Simplifies Mexico Beach Weddings

June 21st, 2012

Of course, once you’ve decided where you intend to have your Mexican beach wedding, the real work begins. In addition to your guest list and travel arrangements, you will need to consider:

  • Ceremony location and time
  • Attire
  • Cuisine (traditional fare vs. catered elegance)
  • Floral arrangements
  • Music
  • Photography
  • Honeymoon plans

(Note: All civil legal marriages performed in Mexico can be validated in the United States, making the legal issues easy to navigate.)

Let’s face it — when anyone plans a trip to a Mexican vacation villa, the ultimate goal is luxury. No matter how much fun it might be to plan activities like surfing, parasailing, or nature tours, just about everyone wants to do them in a setting that is extravagant and comfortable. The best memories of time spent in Mexico almost always include white stretches of sandy beach, great food, and even better service.

Horseback riding near Zihuatanejo MexicoThese days, Mexico vacation rentals are a source of debate when it comes to safety and travel. Media and government reports tend to put the focus on the worst parts of Mexico’s troubles.

However, as many residents, expats, and regular visitors will tell you, a vacation to Mexico is rarely dangerous. By avoiding high-conflict inner cities and enjoying a beachfront villa like those you’ll find in Troncones, you’ll find no more danger than what you would expect on a trip to any overseas location.

Poolside at Mexico beach rentalThere are several different ways to enjoy a Mexico vacation rental. For some visitors, it represents the chance to explore the active sporting lifestyle of surfing, mountain biking, and kayaking. For others, it’s a chance to become a beach bum, soaking in the sun and tropical climate that makes every day such a delight. Another growing trend, especially in quiet beachside resorts like Casa de la Sirena, is to use the natural environment as a way to tap into whole body wellness.

This photo, “Becky’s Mermaid” is so special to me.  Doug and Becky Stow stayed with us last year.  Doug has been a fabulous painter for lots of years and this was Becky’s FIRST PAINTING!!!

And, she gave it to me!!!  She has inspired me and I am hoping to return to my painting lessons when we get back to the beach.
We  have been busily preparing for high season.  We are doing allot of upgrades, painting, re-upholstering and generally just making the private villa and 2 story bungalows “new” again.     It is beautiful now and will be even more so by the 1st of November when it is complete.
GARDEN TIME!  Yes, we are hoping for a great garden this year to accompany our chives, basil, chilis, mangoes, papayas and limons.   We have planted tomatos, squash, warm weather spinach, rosemary and red bell peppers hoping that our love of gardening and attention to the plants surpasses the challenge of the salt air that comes with being right on the ocean.  If anyone has any tips, we would love it if you would share!
We are grateful that the hurricane by passed us and Jessica and Jarrod’s sunset beachfront wedding and celebration was perfect!   Destination weddings in Mexico need not be expensive or difficult.  Just let us help!
Our “cast of regular” Mexican surfer dudes were back for their annual trip (actually, back twice) and made a great Mexico Troncones surfing video available for view on our website.  Thank you to Mike and the guys at Swellmagnet.com.
We still  have a cancellation for the private villa  over Thanksgiving week.  Make us an offer!  If you have never visited us before, this is a perfect opportunity for a romantic get-a-way or a last minute family escape.  We’ll leave the lights on!
