(MEX), also called Benito Juárez International Airport
• More than 26 million arrivals annually • Hundreds of
direct flights weekly from the U.S.
Easy access, great value for the money and a top-notch
reputation for fun and romance make Mexico’s famed vacation destinations irresistible to couples looking to tie the
knot or escape for a romantic interlude.
Mexico’s colorful culture adds an exotic element to destination weddings around the country, and with so many options, qualifying interests is key for directing clients to the
perfect match. Whether clients are looking for barefoot on
the beach or black tie in a ballroom, resorts make it easy
for them to say “I do” with onsite wedding planners and
inclusive packages that range from simple to extravagant.
For something a little different, haciendas, colonial chapels,
wineries and other special events venues set the scene for
the start of a beautiful relationship.
The options are equally plentiful for honeymooners and
others seeking a romantic vacation, however they define
romance…sultry days and nights on the beach, a tête-à-tête
in a colonial courtyard, sophisticated dining at world-class
restaurants, dancing the night away…. Add in a rose-strewn bed and a bottle of bubbly—often complimentary
from first-class resorts—and it’s a match made in heaven.
