Huatulco (pronounced “wah-tool-ko”) is one of the youngest cities in Mexico. This former fishing village has become the Oaxacan beach resort of choice. Snorkeling, diving, kayaking, surfing, cycling and rafting trips are easy to find, as are tours to waterfalls and coffee farms.

Huatulco is a beach destination made up of nine bays with 36 beaches, altogether called Bays National Park, which have been declared a protected reserve.

This beautiful colonial city is located on the pacific coast of Southern Mexico, and remains a traditional Mexican city. It is home to a large indigenous culture, vibrant arts and craft scene, colorful festivities, delicious local cuisine and stunning natural beauty. The historic center is one of over 34 UNESCO Heritage Sites in Mexico.

Visit during November 1st – 2nd when Mexico celebrates Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead). Oaxaca is known for having one of the best Day of the Dead festivals in Mexico.

Travel Document

Passport holders from countries on Mexico’s no visa required list don’t need to apply for a formal visa to visit Mexico. You can use a visitors permit, knows as a FMM (Forma Migratoria Multiple). If your flying into Mexico your airline will typically provide you with the form to fill out. There is a fee for the FMM but many airlines include this in your airfare under taxes and surcharges.

If you are a citizen of the US, visit travel.state.gov for more information on travel documents needed. For Canadian travelers, visit travel.gc.ca for relevant travel information.

Marriage Requirements

You’ll need your passport, tourist permit, and a few other documents to get married in Mexico depending on your location and situation.

Blood tests and X-rays depending on the state your getting married in will need to be done in Spanish and within a certain time frame of the marriage application.

You’ll need to have four witnesses present at the legal ceremony, and they must have valid identifications: typically a valid passport will do but other forms of government issued id may be acceptable.

Our wedding planners will work with you to ensure everything is correct and stress-free.

Previously Married

Each state has slightly different laws regarding previously married couples and our wedding planners will help you navigate this process. Most places required BOTH the bride and groom be divorced for one full calendar year before re-marrying.

If either party is widowed, the death certificate of the deceased spouse will be required.

Same Sex Marriages in Mexico

Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled to change the legal definition of marriage to encompass same-sex couples in 2015. Since then several Mexican States now perform same-sex marriages and others have been moving towards ratifying their laws and legal procedures to comply with the Supreme Court’s ruling.


Spanish is Mexico’s official language though English is widely spoken and understood.


The Mexican peso is the currency of Mexico, but US dollars are often widely accepted in most areas.
