All the tropical vibes of Cancun, without the annoying tourist traffic since it’s an hour’s drive from the Cancun airport. It’s the beach-lover’s dream, and — if you ask us — without a doubt one of the best wedding locations in Mexico. Let us paint a picture for you: crystal clear waters of the Caribbean, white sand beaches, ancient ruins, lush greens and delicious food. Not to mention the luxurious wedding venues, you seriously can’t go wrong here for your destination wedding.
In this small town (we’re talking less than 2000 people) in western France, you can really tap into the fairytale vibes of the French countryside. The medieval architecture, hella beautiful chateaus and adorable town center make this place feel straight out of a storybook.
