The good news? You don’t have to imagine it. This is all just a small part of what you’ll get when you have your wedding at the Barcelo Maya Grand resort. And with several packages available that are specifically designed for South Asian weddings, you’ll undoubtedly find all you need here just like our own clients.

Read on to see why this resort has everything that fairytale weddings are made of and all in a luxurious setting in the Caribbean.

The Location

Barcelo Maya Grand is located in Playa del Carmen and is just 45 minutes from Cancun International Airport. You and your guests will receive complimentary transfer services from there to and from the resort. What makes this extra special is that it has 1.2 miles of private beach available for weddings.

Playa del Carmen is known as one of the best destinations for finding quality restaurants in the Riviera Maya. It’s in the heart of the ancient Mayan region so it’s easy to do a day trip to see the ancient ruins at Tulum during your stay. This also makes a great experience to have with your closest friends and family before your wedding events.

The beaches here are adjacent to the famed jungles here which are home to Xcaret Park, a natural sanctuary that has more than 40 cultural attractions and exhibits on the history, art, and traditions of Mexico and its Mayan roots. It’s perfect for those in your party who love adventure. And for those who don’t want to go too far, there are restaurants, shops, and night clubs to enjoy.
