Are you a nature lover that’s fascinated by the rich Mayan culture? Are you looking for somewhere private and secluded to elope to? Then a magical Mayan cenote may be the perfect wedding venue for you. 

There aren’t many places in the world you can find these wondrous cenotes, but the Riviera Maya is full of them! Not only are cenotes some of the most stunning natural phenomenons in the world, but they are also an extremely important aspect of the history and culture in the Yucatan. Cenotes are large, cavernous sinkholes that are filled with glistening turquoise water and surrounded by lush jungle. Ancient Mayans used to use these sacred places not only as a primary source of fresh-water but also for spiritual ceremonies. The Mayans would throw precious jewels, gold, jade and sculptures into the deep water as an offering to the gods of rain and prosperity. 

Today, as you walk along the winding paths around cenotes, you can still feel that unmistakable buzz of energy that speaks to years of magic and rich spiritual practice. Because of this, cenotes are the perfect place to perform one of the most ancient of ceremonies, marriage. 

Thanks to the secluded nature of these beautiful places, cenotes make the perfect venue for a private elopement or intimate wedding ceremony. We offer many different types of cenote ceremony, so you can be as traditional or unique as you like. Having a completely private area means that we can completely tailor your experience, no matter if you’re looking for a spiritual, symbolic, traditional or even Mayan wedding.

A Mayan ceremony is one of the most popular choices for a cenote wedding or elopement, due to it’s cultural and spiritual significance in the local area. These wedding ceremonies are carried out by a Shaman that incorporates ancient traditions, scents, music and chants to make your wedding truly unforgettable. 

However, if you prefer a more traditional ceremony, a cenote wedding could still be the perfect option for you. Imagine standing in the middle of a tropical jungle, huge palm trees and flowering plants giving you shade and the deep blue waters of a cenote forming the backdrop. What could be more romantic than that? Cenotes also offer some of the most breathtaking photo ops that you can’t find anywhere else in the world.

There are many options in the resorts and restaurants throughout Cancun, Tulum and Playa del Carmen. At Mango Weddings and Events, our job is to make your wedding day dreams come true.
