Situated in the heart of the Cancun strip, Riu Caribe is on one of the most popular (and nicest!) beaches for destination weddings. The views of playa de Cancun are drop dead gorgeous offering plenty of sun for all (note to self: bring parasols or think about shade for your guests. Maybe a cold water station, little fans or cool towels, perhaps?). This property was recently renovated in 2012 and offers standard rooms and ocean view junior suites, all refurbished with a new fresh, clean style. RIU Caribe is ideal for destination wedding groups traveling with children as the beach is calm and safe.
One of two beautiful ceremony locations is the above photo — situated right above the beach. This location is ideal for those brides who would like to wear heels or those who don’t want to get married on the sand! The gazebo has a backdrop of the beach with a full view of the ocean. It’s also a great spot if you’re looking for a bit more privacy for the ceremony (note to self: privacy!).
But need we say more about beach weddings (for we are a beach weddings agency) … most destination wedding couples still opt for the white sand between their toes. If you are one of those beach “traditionalists,” the beach at RIU Caribe is idyllic. Your ceremony will be set up off to the side of the main beach where you and your guests can enjoy the sounds of the waves and soft sand between your toes and you pronounce your vows to one another! Look at how perfect this sand looks. We will leave the rest up to you to decide. In any case, it’s a fun option!
