we love...

As a private venue, Villa La Joya gives you the freedom and flexibility to plan the destination wedding you want. You’ll notice many wedding venues abroad mention this same phrase but somewhere down the line you’ll stumble across their long list of restrictions and compulsory requirements. Villa La Joya offers you the luxury of an exclusive use, private wedding venue without those resort restrictions.

What's So Special About Villa Joya?

Villa La Joya is a beautiful private residence situated just north of Playa del Carmen, Mexico that offers a luxurious and personalized destination wedding experience for any couples looking for a scenic, wow-your-guests beachside wedding.

With gorgeous private beach views as the backdrop to your ceremony (free of interruptions from other events and vacationers might we add). You can revel in the intimate location surrounded by nothing but your loved ones and the light sea breeze.

You may opt for a garden ceremony or perhaps you’d rather say your vows on the sand – the choice is yours, and the in house team are there to help you create an unforgettable experience.

Villa La Joya accommodates weddings of up to 200 guests, with space for a cozy lounge for more intimate affairs and a list of local recommended accommodation to pass onto your guests or add onto your wedding website.

don't miss...

Did we mention how convenient the location is for your guests? We know a long haul oversees wedding can be a bit daunting, so for those guests travelling from afar you want to make it as easy as possible in terms of travel arrangements. Another reason we love La Joya.. located just a half hour south of Cancún, your friends and family will have plenty of lodging and entertainment options within their budget close by and it’s close to Cancún int airport.

Mostly Spanish, but you’ll get by with English.

Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey all have a metro system and most towns and cities have cheap bus systems. Taxis are convenient – just make sure it’s an official taxi and that the meter is on. Self-driving in Mexico can be hair-raising and unlikely to help with any pre-wedding jitters.

Public Holidays

Mexico celebrates Christmas and Easter, as well as Cinco de Mayo in some locations (5th May), Constitution Day (5th February), Independence Day (16th September), Revolution Day (third Monday in November) and Labour Day (1st May), among others.

Good Time to Go

The best time to visit Mexico is during the dry season between December and April, when there is practically no rain at all. The coolest months are between December & February.

good to know

A typical Mexican wedding reception is usually one of the best parties you’ll ever attend. From the never-ending dancing to lively mariachi music, and the incredible food and desserts, it’s a celebration that goes on well into the night.

What Couples Say

“Villa la Joya was an absolute dream. We visited Mexico and toured the venue with our wedding planner (Paradise Wedding Events) and fell in love with the venue. The villa was immaculate, the grounds were lush and elegant, and it was the perfect setting for our semi small (40 people) wedding. The staff was so friendly and accommodating and answered all our questions. The day of the wedding was absolutely perfect! Everything was exactly how we envisioned!”

What Couples Say

“Villa la Joya is one of the most breath taking venues I have ever seen. Mike went above and beyond to make sure my family and I had everything taken care of. I felt like Mike treated me like family to make sure my wedding day was perfect. I could never thank him enough for all he did for me and my family on my wedding day. Everything about this location is perfect, the view of the ocean is beautiful and the grounds are spectacularly maintained.”
