- Legal Wedding Requirements
Destination wedding Mexico has warm gentle breezes floating inland from the ocean. It has thick jungles scattered with ancient ruins and wildlife. It has a mixture of colonial and industrialized cities. Each of its regions greets travelers with enchanting and magical surprises from street festivals to eclectic restaurants to modern shopping centers and rustic markets. Authentic and charming, Mexico’s diversity is something to be experienced.
Top Reasons to Visit
Shopping. A paradise for travellers who are fond of the bartering system, Mexico offers plenty of markets with both colorful souvenirs and locals. For those who prefer to know the price upfront there is no shortage of boutiques in the larger cities. Best finds are silver, Mexican blankets and pottery.
Ruins. Scattered up and down both coastlines, the temples and ruins of Mexico often date back to over 2000 years old. The rich history of Mexico is compelling, fascinating and at times unbelievable.
Tequila. Taking its name from the city of Tequila in the Jalisco region, this National drink is made from the hearts of blue agave plants. Not from cactus as commonly believed.
The Food. Mexico offers everything from traditional cuisine with intense flavors and colorful decoration to International restaurants ranging from Thai to Italian. No matter what you are craving, you will find it in this culinary haven.
