Here are some of the top reasons why Sayulita is the ideal choice for your Destination Wedding in Mexico:
Experience – When you invite your guests to share in a unique, fun-filled, relaxing vacation leading up to your wedding, you are giving them the gift of a truly memorable experience-of-a-lifetime. Families and friends come together in celebration of your love and come away with both shared memories and unique individual experiences that will last a lifetime; strengthening bonds of friendship and love during their stay in Sayulita, Mexico.
Cost – On average, total wedding budgets for Sayulita weddings tend to be around half of what you would spend in the states. Many services are more economically priced compared with the US or Canada, and the smaller guest list of a destination wedding allows you the flexibility to spend more per guest while still maintaining a lower overall budget.
Choice – Sayulita’s many private villas and boutique hotels offer your guests a wide array of choice when selecting accommodations, further heightening the travel experience and allowing each family or group to tailor to their specific needs and budget. Visiting the different houses, pools, and neighborhoods of Sayulita, Mexico – all within easy walking distance of each other – adds to the fun of the pre-wedding festivities in Sayulita.
Accessibly Located – In an increasingly global and mobile world, most weddings these days – whether held in the Bride and Groom’s home city or a destination spot – will involve air travel for a large number of guests located around the country or the world. Sayulita’s location, just 24 miles north of Puerto Vallarta’s International Airport, makes it an accessible destination from cities across the US and Canada.
Stress Less – Planning a destination wedding actually relieves much of the stress you and your family would typically encounter if planning a wedding at home. Sayulita’s many wedding professionals can help you navigate all of the planning details from afar, and will ensure a stress-free experience in the days leading up to your wedding in Sayulita. Instead of running around your home city finalizing last minute details, imagine spending your days poolside or on the beach with family and friends as your big day approaches. Plus, bringing the party to a new location creates a neutral ground where family stresses and the responsibilities of “hosting” melt away, as everyone experiences a new environment together.
Quality – Opting for a wedding destination with character, that’s also slightly off-the-beaten-path, shouldn’t mean sacrificing quality services for your wedding. Sayulita’s world-class restaurants, shops, accommodations, and myriad other services will ensure your guests are well fed and well pampered during their entire stay and at all of your wedding events. From caterers with distinctive menus and beyond-the-call service, to award winning bakeries, lush flowers, talented beauty professionals and a wide range of live music and entertainment options, Sayulita’s wedding professionals work together to create unforgettable, unparalleled experiences that are unique reflections of a Bride and Groom’s tastes, interests, and personalities.
- Safety – Sayulita’s tranquil cobblestone streets are a world away from the drug violence of the American/Mexican border. In fact, our entire Puerto Vallarta area is considered very safe for tourist travel, far-removed from areas of reported violence. Consider the vast size of Mexico – comprising 31 states and covering some 760,000+ square miles. Now consider the comparably small size of California at just over 160,000 square miles. Would you avoid visiting Yosemite National Park or the San Francisco Bay Area because of reported gang violence in Los Angeles?
