Getting out of dodge to say I do is back in a big way after the COVID-19 pandemic all but shut down the destination wedding industry. Here are some top places for your nuptials in 2023.
PLAYA MUJERES, MEXICO
Playa Mujeres is a resort community just north of Cancun and light years away from it’s spring-break style party. It’s an easy ride from the Cancun airport, though, and there’s plenty of resort accommodations. For excursions for the couple or for visiting family and friends, there are archaeology tours to nearby Chichen Itza and Tulum, as well as plenty of cenotes, beaches and wildlife tours to explore.
MONTEGO BAY, JAMAICA
Jamaica’s third-most populous city boasts sandy beaches, glittering caves, stunning waterfalls, restaurants, golf, nightlife and more.
The center of action is Gloucester Avenue, where you can visit Usain Bolt’s sports bar. The city is also close to major attractions Ocho Rios, Negril and St. Elizabeth. There are plenty of historic houses, chateaus, hotels and resorts to host your I-dos.

This tropical paradise shows off a pristine shoreline with mountains and volcanoes to boot. Playa Hermosa is a good choice for travelers who want to get away from it all and explore the natural world. It’s near Rincon de la Vieja National Park, Palo Verde National Park and Santa Rosa National Park. Liberia is the capitol of the province and maintains a native Tico atmosphere while still accommodating travelers. The White City would be a great choice for a white wedding.
PARADISE ISLAND, BAHAMAS
Just offshore of New Providence in the Bahamas, Paradise Island is home to popular Cabbage and

If you’re looking to stay stateside, this city dripping with Southern charm and tropical hues makes for a stunning wedding backdrop. You can still get your beachfront and your history, too, and the vendors have plenty of experience with destination brides, raising the chances your wedding will go off without a hitch.
