Costa Mujeres, Mexico, is creating a lot of vacation buzz these days. And for very good reason. Firstly, you are going to swoon over the beaches. The whitest powdery sand is how you will enjoy your morning walks. Not to mention enjoying the view of the calmest and bluest of the Caribbean Sea. Next, add in lovely even-tempered weather year-round. Similarly, you have some of the worlds best all-inclusive resorts taking ground here. Most importantly, it is ideally situated. In short, it’s just north of the Cancun International Airport.
And when it comes to your destination wedding, Costa Mujeres does not disappoint. Stunning new wedding ceremony and reception locations abound here. Below are my top reasons why you will want to consider this beautiful new holiday haven. It’s perfect for destination weddings of all sizes.
Where is Costa Mujeres
That’s one of the first questions I am asked when it comes to this brand new vacation hotspot. It’s literally just a short thirty-minute drive from Cancun’s bustling streets. Moreover, it extends just up from those gorgeous Cancun beaches. Its often being referred to these days as the new Cancun. Many new luxury all-inclusive resorts have arrived over the past few years, with more of your favourite resort chains to come. And best of all, the resorts are located in a private gated community. So you and your guests can enjoy a safe and carefree Mexico holiday.
Costa Mujeres Weather
Costa Mujeres weather is a holiday seeker dream location. Within Mexico, the weather is generally around 23 to 29 C daily year-round. Firstly, there are a few exceptions to this. The summer months can be at the same temperature. However, Costa Mujeres and Cancun receive more humidity. Especially during the daytime. Secondly, keep this in mind for summer weddings. You’ll want to schedule events later in the day. And don’t forget that moisture-proof makeup for your wedding day festivities. Thirdly, later August, September, and October are normally rainier. So keep this in mind when planning your nuptials in Southern Mexico.
Costa Mujeres Beaches
Costa Mujeres is literally Caribbean beach heaven. The all-inclusive resorts are situated on some of the worlds nicest sand. You’ll see the white unobstructed sandy beach for miles. Not to mention the bluest of aquamarine water. Perfect for those toes in the sand wedding ceremonies. I was very impressed with the lack of seaweed along the coast—a very nice change from many of the resorts along the Riviera Maya. You and your guests will enjoy endless holiday ocean swimming while here in this beloved new region.
You and your guests may want to explore off the property. If so, one well-known beach to explore is Isla Blanca. The resort is happy to set you up with transfers. Or you can take your rental car. It’s an awesome area to go kite surfing in! Similarly, its a fantastic group excursion option.
Local Costa Mujeres Activities
There is an abundance of additional things to do in Costa Mujeres, Mexico. Firstly, how about a group snorkel with whale sharks. It’s a great bonding activity. Whether you would like to consider it a pre or post-wedding celebration, another great option is a visit to the Mayan Ruins of El Meco. Perfect for the explorers in your wedding party.
Similarly, the lovely, quaint island of Isla Mujeres is just a short boat ride away. Here you can rent golf carts just off the boat docking area. It’s so much fun to bomb around the island with your guests. And here you’ll find loads of food shops to explore. As well as great souvenir shopping.
Another great excursion option is a day trip to Cancun. You can head out in the morning for a fun-filled holiday adventure. As a result, you’ll find some of the most exquisite clothing and jewellery shops. Not to mention your favourite international clothing brands. My personal favourite shopping centre is La Isla Shopping Village. I could spend hours shopping there. And believe me, I have! Other great finds can be found at Puerto Cancun Marina Town Center. Or the Plaza Las Americas, where Mexican handicrafts abound. As well as a huge cinema and food court!
One of my top picks for dining options in Costa Mujeres is the Chic Cabaret, which is located at the beautiful TRS Yucatan Resort, which is also located in Costa Mujeres. I was incredibly impressed with the live performances here. It was a Vegas-style show that never ceased to amaze me. Additionally, you receive a seven-course delicious meal during the show, along with premium bar service throughout the evening. If you stay at this adults-only property, there is no admission cost. Similarly, other fine dining options is Peter’s Restaurante, located in Cancun. Excellence Playa Mujeres offers a shared dining experience with their nearby resorts. Definitely worth checking out!
Incredible Cancun Nightlife
Costa Mujeres is so very drop-dead beautiful. However, it can be a bit quiet in the nighttime hours, even for the most laid back members of your group. Therefore, Cancun is a great area to head into during your holiday stay here. The nightlife in Cancun abounds literally seven days a week. The most famous nightclub in Cancun is Coco Bongo. Its a must experience if you want to party hard. Similarly, Mandala is a great option for your bachelor party. And don’t forget your bachelorette party at Dady’O. Both options make for very memorable pre or post-wedding festivities.
Golf at Costa Mujeres
What I really love about Costa Mujeres is it’s laid back vibe. It’s surrounded by lush tropical mangroves. Giving it a real tropical oasis feel. Similarly, massive green palm trees dot the streets throughout this area. In the same vein, it’s wonderful to enjoy these surroundings while playing golf.
The golfers in your group thoroughly enjoy the Playa Mujeres Golf Club. This Greg Norman-designed golf course is a par 72 18 hole course. It offers a golf shop, lounge area and practice facilities. Likewise, a clubhouse for cold refreshing drinks with your mates after a great day of golf. There are other golf options as well when you stay in Costa Mujeres. We are happy to help with additional golf information for surrounding Cancun popular golf courses.
