Planet Hollywood Cancun: Where You’ll Have the Blockbuster Wedding of Your Dreams

Planet Hollywood Cancun recently opened and we couldn’t be happier. It offers so much when it comes to having a wedding. We were recently invited to get a full insider tour of this extraordinary property and we have to agree: you really do feel like a star when you’re here! While the name mentions “Cancun,” the property is actually located in Costa Mujeres which is just 40 minutes north of Cancun and that’s actually a great thing. That’s because you’ll be close enough to go to Cancun to enjoy the fun night life offerings but just far enough to enjoy the tranquility and laid-back vibe of the area around the resort. Read on to see everything that this all-inclusive resort has to offer.
