What's New on - Weddings at Hotel Las Palmas in Zihuatanejo, Guerrero, Mexico

One of the stops on our recent hotel tour of Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo in the state of Guerrero, Mexico was an intimate bed & breakfast called Hotel Las Palmas. It was a bit of a challenge to get to (we had to ask several taxi drivers if they knew the place), but in the end it was definitely worth the effort and we were very glad we went.

Not directly in Zihuatanejo, the hotel is located south of the city down a remote road by the airport. It is a bit of a rough drive to the hotel, but hopefully the road will be improved as the area becomes more developed. Las Palmas is a high-quality hotel on a fantastic stretch of beach with a relaxing and unpretentious atmosphere. The hotel grounds are perfectly manicured, with plenty of green space, tropical foliage, and a serene infinity pool. The staff are warm and welcoming, including the resident dogs and cats, so if you are not an animal lover, this may not be the right place for you.

With only six rooms, your wedding group can easily take over the whole property. In fact, if you want to get married here, your group must book the whole hotel. Weddings are mostly held on the secluded beach, and receptions are usually held in the open-air restaurant. We had the pleasure of staying for dinner, and the food, although not gourmet, is decent and very reasonably-priced (approximately $100-200 pesos per entrée, which translates into approximately $10-20 USD).

Since the hotel is so small, they can offer you highly personalized service and customized wedding options. The hotel can make the arrangements for a legal wedding, or if you would prefer to have a religious wedding (non-legal), most couples choose to bring their own officiant to perform the ceremony.

At Hotel Las Palmas you won't have to worry about competing with other weddings on your special day, or a beach full of tourists. It's a place where you can share your wedding vows among family and friends in an intimate and romantic setting, while taking in the beauty of Mexico's Pacific coast.
