A honeymoon on Mexico’s largest island, just 30 miles long and nine miles wide, is proof that great things can come in small packages. Cozumel is cozy, lovely, laid back and easy – easy on the eyes, easy to get around, easy to love. Lodging options go from big resorts and boutique ho-tels to traditional villas and bungalows. It also has many unique features that lovers love. Stun-ning Mexican Caribbean reefs around the island have been ranked as one of the world’s top five scuba diving sites, making the most of the Mexican Caribbean’s rich biodiversity.
The resort area is on the West Coast on both sides of the town of San Miguel. Snorkeling and other water sports are also fun due to the fact that water visibility is amazing. You can stand in the water with a mask and see everything. Attractions and activities are easy to find, and there’s lots to discover off the beaten path.
Bride, Groom & Witnesses should arrive early by 3-4 business days to fulfill all the wedding re-quirements
Valid passports: Make sure passports are current and accurate. Brides who have been divorced need to use a passport with their maiden name, rather than any married names they held.
Record the names, addresses, nationalities, ages, occupation, relationship, copy of a tourist card and a valid identification of all four witnesses. Your wedding planner or resort wedding coordi-nator can fill out the legal form. Your witnesses can be anyone who has a valid passport.
Blood test: A blood test is required. It costs $300 USD plus taxes (per couple), and it must be taken in Mexico. Take the test within 10 to a maximum of 12 days prior to your ceremony, or it may not be considered valid. The purpose is to test for HIV, STD’s (sexually transmitted diseas-es) and blood type, . The results will be ready in 24 hours, along with a certificate of completion. Talk to your wedding planner or resort wedding coordinator to arrange the blood test for you as soon as possible after your arrival in Mexico.
It costs around $500 USD + taxes for the city hall court fees and application process.
Ensure that your four witnesses all have a valid passport & tourist card along with their names, addresses, nationalities, ages, occupation, and your relationship to them. Your wedding planner can give you all required forms.
Your Marriage Certificate is only valid in Mexico. To ensure it will be recognized internationally, you need to send a copy to Mexico’s Validation Processing office. The fee is $165 USD + taxes, and processing can take anywhere from 1-3 months. Once the document is apostilled, the resort will send all documentation to your home address. Documents will be in Spanish, and many re-sorts offer translation services for an additional fee.
