Tulum Wedding Planning
Gran CenoteLocated about twenty minutes inland from Tulum on the road to Coba, El Gran Cenote or Grand Cenote is an underground cavern that is ideal for swimming and diving. The Grand Cenote is called ‘the Big Cenote’ for a few reasons. The formations are big, tall and wide. The second reason is its cavern opening.
AkumalAkumal or “Place of the Turtles” in Mayan, is a nesting ground for sea turtles who come ashore to lay their eggs every year. Take a day trip to swim with the turtles and enjoy the clear waters of the shallow lagoon.
Tulum National Park (Parque Nacional de Tulum) / Tulum RuinsLocated 100 miles (62 km) to the south of Playa del Carmen and 80 miles (128 km) from Cancun, the ruins of Tulum are walled into the east and face the Caribbean Sea to the west.
Travel DocumentPassport 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 RequirementsYou’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 MarriedEach 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 MexicoMexico’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.
LanguageSpanish is Mexico’s official language though English is widely spoken and understood.
CurrencyThe Mexican peso is the currency of Mexico, but US dollars are often widely accepted in most areas.
