Nestled amidst the luxuriant rainforests of the Mexican Caribbean and upon the shores of a glittering turquoise sea, lies a place like no other in the world: Xcaret, meaning "small inlet" in Maya. This spectacular eco-park in the heart of the Riviera Maya was for more than ten centuries one of the most important Mayan harbour and ceremonial centres.

Locations

St. Francis of Assisi Chapel
The Chapel is legally recognized by the Catholic Church, reason why Xcaret is one of the few places in the Mexican Caribbean to offer a ceremony with Catholic validity.

The Ponds
This is an impressive area of natural, rocky ponds acting as wave breakers, which can be the perfect scenery for a civil or religious ceremony (except Catholic) as you may find a beautiful stone altar to which you may have access by descending beautiful rustic stairs.

Other Locations
There are diverse areas within Xcaret which stand out for their mysticism, nature and history. The spectacular landscape they offer for cocktail parties or civil and/or religious (non-Catholic) ceremonies will create a lasting memory in every one of your guests.

Post-Reception Party (After Hours Party)
And after the party, the great closing!
The service for the "After Hours Party" is held at the "Dos Playas" Restaurant beach, amidst white cushions and tall bar tables in addition to an extraordinary atmosphere achieved when combining elements such as the sand, sea, robotic lights, a star-filled deep blue sky, DJ music, among other features.We offer different options of typical Mexican hors d'ouvres for the "After Hours".
The "After Hours" area is ideal for this service for a group of 50 to 150 guests.

What could be better than impressing your guests with a mystical environment in an impressive natural cavern, or in an area with a view to the beach. An event as no one else can provide, unparalleled natural scenery, regional performers or pre-Hispanic dancers, the best food and a wide variety of beverages…and everything you deserve on the most important day of your life!
