Five Romantic Riviera Maya Engagement Ideas
Getting engaged in the Mexican Caribbean? From Cancun down to Playa del Carmen and Tulum, this is one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world. A short flight from the States or Canada sets you down in lush jungles, ancient Mayan Ruins, white sand beaches and Caribbean waters. All this makes it one of the world’s top locations for destination weddings and a perfect place to pop the Big Question. But with such a gorgeous variety of locations to chose from, how does one decide ?
Let us design the experience for you.
We are happy to help and actually have a TON of ideas! With our destination wedding, trash the dress and proposal shoots, we’ve captured LOVE under the Mexican Caribbean waves and in cenotes, to the best beaches and hotels all the way up in the air with our drone. We know the best places to make your proposal an unforgettable one. Here are a few of our suggestions for Riviera Maya engagement plans:
1. The Classic
For the traditionalist, a romantic dinner in a fabulous restaurant with candlelight, champagne and a sweet dessert. We think mariachi serenade makes for excellent photographic material., essential. While the movies make the “hide the ring in the champagne glass” trick look marvelous, we don’t recommend it unless you are well-versed in the heimlich maneuver.
2. the boat
The Riviera Maya is a water lovers paradise and a boat proposal is a great way to land a mermaid bride. A private catamaran ride on the sea or a slow cruise through the canals of Hyatt Andaz Mayakoba is a sure fire way to get her to say YES! Sunset is a magic hour on the water, hold her hand as the sky turns pink and whisper in her ear as you slip the ring on her finger. Even a catamaran yacht cruse out of one of the local marinas over sunset is MINT.
Who doesn’t love long walks on the beach.. there are so many ideas here. We know the locations and many secret little spots.
The Yucatan Peninsula is well known for the local “fresh water aquifers” called “cenotes” These natural swimming holes are hidden in the jungle like little gardens of Eden, the crystalline waters provide an EPIC backdrop to make underwater photographs. You may be thinking… water + rings.. don’t worry we’ve rescued lost rings before too.
5. Surprise it’s a WEDDING
This one is strictly for the bold, no holds barred engagement action. Bringing your girlfriend to the Riviera Maya and making her your fiancee with a surprise engagement is one thing, making her your wife at a surprise wedding she knew nothing about only seconds later after proposing is a totally different beast. With the help of family and a great wedding planner, it can absolutely be done, this Grand Coral Beach Club surprise wedding goes down in history as one of our most exciting shoots, hiding in the bushes like paparazzi capturing the moment he popped the question!
In the end, the where and the how can create an atmosphere, but the real success of a Riviera Maya engagement will be found in your own unique expression of love. Lay your heart bare, express your deepest feelings and the rest will fall into place and you will find your happily ever after in paradise.
