Couples looking for a destination wedding often choose Mexico for its lively party atmosphere. However, those on the lookout for a quiet, romantic wedding will be happy to know that it can be just as peaceful to get married in Mexico. From colonial towns to isolated islands, Mexico offers many oportunities for reserved, amorous getaways.
If you want to get married in Mexico, look into these places
San Miguel de Allende

The city boasts beautiful architecture, colorful culture and dozens of historic monuments. Set against a mountain backdrop, tranquility reigns in “The Heart of Mexico”.

Barely 4 miles long and not even half a mile wide, Isla Mujeres is the definition of a romantic getaway. The Caribbean paradise can only be accessed via boat ride from Cancun and is one of Mexico’s true tresures, according to The Huffington Post. It boasts beautiful scenery – both marine and terrestrial. Enjoy the much needed privacy on your wedding day, as the island’s size and isolation preserve its small-town charm. Water-based activities are a must, as snorkeling, diving and kayaking in the beautiful coral reefs are one of Isla Mujeres’ biggest draw.

Until very recently Zihuatanejo was mainly a small fishing town. However, the nearby Acapulco and Ixtapa experienced a boom in tourism over the last couple decades, and as a result it has spilled over to Zihuatanejo. Nevertheless, tourists haven’t spoiled it, as the destination keeps its rustic small town feel. Zihuatanejo enjoys vast clear beaches and picturesque sunsets. Relish a secluded ceremony as you celebrate your nuptials in a small romantic boutique hotel.
