What an amazing team!
Cannot express enough how wonderful it was to work with Karen and her team! We thought planning a wedding from afar would be challenging, but Karen made it very easy, seamless, and stress-free. She quickly responded to emails and provided the wedding planning steps in chunks so the process wasn’t overwhelming! She was also very understanding when we had to make minor changes and offered suggestions when we couldn’t decide on some things. Honestly, we couldn’t have asked for a better coordinator and team. During the wedding day, we were blown away by how they decorated the wedding space–it felt as though our Pinterest board came to life and our guests had nothing but praises for how everything turned out! Some even called it the “wedding of the century” and the “best wedding they’ve been to”. Everyone thought it was such a unique venue and both the beach and the jungle area were set up stunningly. Our guests also really loved the bar and buffet and couldn’t stop talking about how amazing the food was. They really went above and beyond and we’re grateful to their team for making our day everything we imagined it to be and more. Truly loved working with y’all!

Working with Karen made our wedding seamless, stress free and better than I could have ever imagined. From the beginning she was thorough about what to expect with the process right until the end. Karen was quick to reply to emails, and sent everything one step at a time which made everything as least stressful as possible. She absolutely saved us when our previous wedding villa/venue cancelled on us 3 months out, she was able to shuffle some things around and got us an incredible venue which her and her team made absolutely stunning; we got SO many compliments. The vendors she recommended were amazing, I wouldn’t have changed a thing. On the wedding day her and her team made everything run very smoothly and kept us on schedule, without feeling rushed at any point. The service on the wedding day by the servers/bartenders was friendly and prompt, and the food was amazing. Thank you Karen and team, our wedding was everything we could have hoped for and more!

Karen made my wedding dreams come true!!
Karen is truly so amazing!! We had our wedding at Playa Secreta and stayed at The Grand Villa at Amor Boutique. Karen and her team were very quick to respond to all our emails and truly brought all my ideas together to create my dream wedding. She had a huge team working the day of the wedding and all my guest could not stop talking about how amazing the service was. The food was amazing and our wedding cake was the best cake we have ever had. Truly such an amazing week. Sayulita is such a fun town. Its perfect for exploring with family and friends.

Absolutely wonderful
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Karen to help plan our wedding. We were blown away at how beautiful and stress free everything turned out. If you have any worries about planning a wedding from afar, rest assured you are in good hands. We saw the venue before the wedding and to see how it was transformed for our event was incredible. Absolutely beautiful and the planning process covered everything. Sayulita is a magical place to be, and Karen helped make it even more so. Thank you for everything!

Beautiful unique venue & planning!
Playa Secreta is truly a unique wedding venue! We hosted our ceremony on the public beach and then everyone went back into the small jungle space for the reception and dance party. Our guests loved that we were in the trees and sand, it was really such a unique experience for everyone. It was amazing to see how the space was transformed into a relaxed venue that felt very casual but also very beautiful. Karen was wonderful to work with from the get-go. It was fairly easy to walk through each step with her as she recommended some great vendors and was never pushy about anything. I'm also thankful for her patience with me as we changed our mind about minor details here and there before the wedding day. :D I was so impressed with the decor/setup the day of - I really felt like she made my Pinterest board come alive and truly appreciated the creative direction she took. We opted for the buffet and had several guests rave about the food the day after our wedding. Her whole staff was just so wonderful and kind. They all made sure every one of our guests was taken care of and truly helped make our wedding day that much more special. Thank you, Karen, and the Playa Secreta Team! We will miss working with you.

Amazing wedding planning & venue!
We can’t recommend Karen and her team enough. As someone who has planned and coordinated many of my friend’s weddings, once I got engaged, countless people asked me “but who’s going to plan and coordinate your wedding?!?” Well by luck or fate I found the perfect person to do that in Karen and the Playa Secreta team. From my Fiance & my’s first meeting with Karen, before we had even decided to get married in Sayulita, I knew Karen was the best in the business. She answered all our questions thoroughly, told us all about a town neither of us had ever been too, and gave us confidence in planning a destination wedding in another country. After that meeting, I knew Karen had to be our wedding planner and we had to get married in Sayulita. Karen made the wedding planning process easy and straightforward. At the beginning she thoroughly outlined all the steps and then sent us tasks one by one. She gave us options and recommendations, but never overwhelmed us with too many. The vendors she recommended were all lovely and it made it hard to pick since there were so many good ones! The day of our wedding was magic. Karen and her team literally brought my Pinterest board to life. I’ll always remember my little sister running into my room before I saw the space and saying “it looks just like your inspiration photos out there! It’s amazing!” Karen and the team also took care of every little detail - tips on how to make the ceremony perfect, ensuring we had drinks during all our cocktail hour pictures, keeping the evening flowing and on time, accommodating our guests requests. The playa secreta venue was also amazing. I was nervous about getting married on a public beach but during the ceremony I felt like we were in our own little slice of paradise. Then the reception space was absolutely dreamy - I loved feeling like we were in a magical jungle.

Needless to say, our wedding day was absolutely perfect and I fully credit it to Karen, her team, the vendors she recommended and the amazing playa secreta venue.

Thank you Emily & Josh for every word you take the time to write, I was also very nervous since I knew how great you are planning weddings.. you were always very sweet and nice and your family and friends were the same, I enjoy very much seeing you guys enjoying every minute of your wedding, and even when you know all the process your biggest concern was always your husband, I love our meeting before the wedding, you guys kissing all the time truly in love and make sure the other one was fine and happy... That to me is the most important part of my job, helping couples to celebrate their love .. thank you guys so much, I know you will have a beautiful marriage.

All our best from the whole Playa Secreta team.

Incredible wedding! Highly recommend
We cannot recommend Karen and her whole team at Playa Secreta enough. We had a relatively seamless experience planning a wedding from afar. Karen took care of ALL of the decor details, managing the vendors, the day-of-timeline, etc. Karen did an amazing some executing the wedding of our dreams and bringing our vision to life. Additionally, our guests absolutely loved their time in Sayulita and were blown away by the wedding itself. It was so special with every detail thought out. We are so happy we went with Playa Secreta and will miss working with Karen!

The Wedding Of My Dreams!
Look no further because this team, their services, and location was nothing but pure magic! I am so very thankful to Karen and her phenomenal team helping plan every single detail and executing the wedding of my dreams. Planning a wedding can be daunting...especially in a different country. But, Karen was so responsive, organized, and transparent with each step along the way. Her and her team break up the planning in sections so that it is less overwhelming and sends very clear details, instructions, and reminders. When I walked into the venue the day of the wedding I started crying as it was even more beautiful that I had imagined. I feel so blessed to have found Karen and her services! She is beautiful inside and out! Just trust me, brides...this is the place/service to use for your wedding.

Epic Weddings Here
Karen did a perfect job coordinating our wedding. She was organized, responsive and the actual event blew our expectations away. It’s challenging planning a destination wedding because you have to give up so much control on so many different aspects, but Karen did an amazing job and I’d recommend her 100% for anyone looking to get married in Sayulita. I can’t say enough about how perfect our special day was. We had multiple people tell us afterwards and even months later that it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
