Mexico’s Sun Triangle Offers Three Charming Destination Wedding Locations

Known for some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world, the Sun Triangle destinations – Acapulco, Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo and Taxco – each provide a unique backdrop for couples seeking a special destination wedding locale. From endless beaches and gardens to elegant venues with the capacity to hold more than 1,000 guests and cuisine which pairs the best of land and sea, the Sun Triangle Destinations are equipped to meet the needs of any bride and groom-to-be.


Offering the most diverse options for weddings and honeymoons of the three Sun Triangle destinations, Acapulco is Mexico’s original beach resort whose glamorous history is still apparent throughout the city – from its fabulous hotels, glimmering beaches, gourmet restaurants and endless nightlife. Romance exudes from Acapulco’s hilltop chapels, oceanfront venues and private, cliff-side villas; all of which are available options for the perfect destination wedding.

For starters, the iconic Fairmont Acapulco Princess offers a remarkable pyramid shaped building honoring Mexico’s pre-Hispanic Aztec past and one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in the destination, making this an ideal location to say “I Do”. The property is also home to the signature Willow Stream Spa, making it easy for brides and bridal parties to prepare for the big day in style and relaxation.

For brides and grooms seeking a less formal union, Hotel Boca Chica is the perfect place to tie the knot. While the colors and décor evoke a retro 1950’s vibe, Boca Chica is bright and lively, making it a favorite among young lovers seeking a celebration with elegant canapés and dancing. Yet another option is the incredible Banyan Tree Cabo Marques inspired by the colorful origins of Acapulco and set a top of a cliff with cascades falling into the Pacific Ocean, the Banyan Tree Cabo Marques offers warmth and hospitality with an Asian flare making it a picturesque locale for soon-to-be newlyweds.
