Wedding Packages Showcase Region’s Authentic Character, Unique Hospitality Traditions


RIVIERA NAYARIT, MexicoIt’s not just the endless white sand beaches, the Pacific sunsets and the elegant luxury resorts that explain the buzz about romance in Riviera Nayarit. The essence of Mexico’s newest tourism destination is its originality - the perfect blend of world-class comforts and luxury with extraordinary natural beauty and uniquely authentic culture, traditions and history.


Whether the occasion is a wedding, honeymoon, anniversary or any other romantic occasion, what will be remembered – what will make the moment enduringly vivid – is that, in a world increasingly globalized, plasticized and homogenized, Nayarit was a wonderfully real place, with distinctive character, energy, even passion.


This is a place where a growing number of internationally acclaimed brand names - Four Seasons, St. Regis, Greg Norman, Jack Nicklaus are making their mark. But it is also a place where timeless fishing villages with waterfront cafes are as charming as the endless, white sand beaches are beautiful. Where ancient history is as fascinating as the surrounding wildlife sanctuaries, and where visitors are treated to hospitality and service that are the product of residents’ continuing pride and appreciation for their unique heritage.  And, all this is reflected in a choice of romance packages offered by a variety of hotels and resorts.


The choices for special romantic occasions in Riviera Nayarit range from full-service resorts fully competitive with the finest luxury properties around the world to intimate, local-flavored B&B’s. Whatever the choice there’s plenty expert help to arrange the details. A wide range of options are available honeymoons and romantic vacations. The following are examples of some of the wedding packages offered in the destination:


Grand Velas Resort & Spa is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World and a recipient of the AAA Five Diamond Award. A “Lounge Wedding Package” ensures total relaxation and enjoyment of the occasion by including a legal wedding ceremony; all preparations and floral arrangements; hot & cold hors d’oeuvres; a buffet menu for 50 people, including an especially prepared wedding cake; three hours of open bar and three hours of DJ entertainment. (Sample cost: 25-50 guests: US$13,940 + 15% tax).
