Mexican Riviera Maya’s Romantic LGBTQ+ Wedding Site

Andaz Myakoba lesbian wedding

This enchanting tropical forest eco-resort offers a modern fairy tale setting.

When Andaz Mayakoba Resort opened in Mexico’s Riviera Maya in late 2016, it immediately became a hot wedding destination for same-sex couples. The acclaimed, gated Caribbean beachfront eco-resort (just north of Playa del Carmen) is situated on 590 acres surrounded by oceanfront, lush tropical forests, and breath-taking preserved mangrove-laden lagoons.

Inspired by Indigenous experiences (the tastes and sounds and culture of the people of the area), this resort is like its sister property (Andaz Costa Rica Resort at Peninsula Papagayo) in Costa Rica: nature — and the animals in it — are not kept at bay but integrated into the resort and visitors’ experiences.

That’s one reason that when this lesbian couple (who shared their beautiful images but not their names) got engaged, there was no better destination for their wedding than Mayakoba Resort.

Andaz also offers oceanfront options, big ballrooms, tiny nooks, and forest settings; and their on-site wedding consultants handle the details and logistics (everything from the flowers to optional fireworks), relieving couplesfrom the planning stress.

For this couple, the ultimate luxury was how the Mayakoba lagoon that circles the resort embraced them, immersing them in the sumptuous sights and sounds of nature during their private ceremony.
