Ever had a weekday morning where you wake up and immediately start daydreaming of a nap? Or maybe you find yourself in a packed boardroom at work and catch yourself floating to a place where the only thing you’re invested in is the book on your lap? Sometimes, the sweet simplicity of having so little to do is exactly what we crave. Nothingness is really something after all, and if it’s what you’re dreaming of for a quiet and intimate destination wedding and honeymoon in Mexico, Isla Mujeres Palace is an ideal choice.
This blissfully intimate resort is a short ferry ride from the bustling Cancun, but couldn’t feel further away from the commotion and chaos. Known for its small town vibe, gorgeous Caribbean reef and boutique resorts, Isla Mujeres is a sleepy island paradise that’s quiet and subdued—great for unwinding without any interruptions.
Of all the things to love about Isla Mujeres Palace, certainly the outdoor ambience is high on the list. When you arrive, you and your guests can enjoy some R&R along their beautiful white sand beach or hit the water to kayak, snorkel and swim.
There are also beach hammocks for lazy afternoons soaking up the sun, or you can hole up at the elegant pool and swim-up bar.
Oh, and did we mention this gorgeous outdoor space dresses up perfectly for a wedding and reception? For an intimate beach wedding, there’s nothing better than this dreamy sand setup that ends with a gauzy awning adorned with a floral wreath.
Then, for cocktails and dinner, your guests can enjoy a candlelit meal while the Mexican sun sinks slowly in the distance.
When it’s all over, you can head back to one of the 62 classic and elegant adults-only suites with designer bath amenities, luxurious bedding and 24-hour room service. Maybe you’ll get back to that book you’ve been meaning to catch up on. Or maybe you won’t. Either way, it will be a welcome sanctuary to kick start a blissful honeymoon.
