3. Wedding Venues
…Now to visualise where you are going to say those magical words “I do”.
Here are all the wedding venues to choose from at Panama Jack Cancun… they are seriously swoon-worthy!
1. Ventanas Terrace
Keep everything breezy above ground and enjoy the luxury of having a private terrace with ocean views for your wedding.
This particular location is one of my favourites at nighttime when the fairy lights and everything around the hotel are lit up!
2. Panama Jack Cancun Event Rooms
This is a large space perfect for a bigger wedding and reception parties.
Plus, if you’re having your wedding during the rainy season obviously indoors eliminating the risk of rain.
3. Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel
If you are religious, this hotel has it all!
There is limited seating indoors (60 person max), but guests can still attend outdoors.
If you were hoping for an outdoor location, you are in luck.
Listen to the sounds of the waves roll in and out of the shore as you say your vows!
This location works particularly well during the morning or evening, typically when the sun is lowest and coolest in the sky.
Don’t forget…during mid-day in peak season, the heat is intense.
5. Ceremony On The Beach
If you’ve always dreamed of getting wed on the beach, it doesn’t get much better than this!
Cancun is famed for its proud white sands, and Panama Jack Cancun does not disappoint (more on that later).
6. Villas On The Beach
Feel the sand between your toes during your ceremony, cocktail hour, or reception!
Relaxed beach vibes and surely the spot for all of your guest to truly sink into the rhythm of the tropics for your big day.
7. Terrace Villas
I mean just look at this setup!
Beautiful… ocean views, private location.
In my opinion, it’s the private reception location of dreams!
7. Kulkucan Event Room
Yup, you guessed it this resort has not one but three event rooms for back up.
Albeit this one if a lot smaller. 🙂
It’s not my personal choice but if I was getting married I would like to know there is a beautiful Plan B should the weather go rogue.
7. Yalku Xcaret Event Room
This room is typically used for meetings but can be transformed into a epic space where any couple would be happy to say “I do”
The wedding team at Panama Jack certainly do have an eye for gorgeous aesthetics.
4. Gay Weddings At Panama Jack Cancun
You may be wondering “can you have a Same-Sex Wedding at Panama Jack Cancun?”
Yes, you can have a same-sex wedding at the Panama Jack!
Cancun, in general, is a very gay-friendly area.
The hotel would be honoured to have you stay.

If you were thinking of a beach ceremony this would be the resort to do it at.
The WiFi at this hotel even works well on the beach!
As you saw in the wedding package I detail, it includes a romantic beach dinner. My recommendation?
Do NOT skip out on this dinner it is incredible.
Being waited on hand on foot while you enjoy the company of your new wife/husband on a starry night?

Expect cool dining concepts and compelling cuisine that will please even the pickiest palates.

… and so much more.
This is one of the things I love most about this hotel!
They are always changing what they offer and adding to it, depending on the time of year or month, aligning with special events that guests often hold close to their heart.
Of course, on top of all this, you have the incredible pools to relax in and for those adults who need a little extra pampering the is the Aura Spa to indulge in, which offers:

This place has the most magical chapel! The views ! The service ! I have stayed and previous resorts in Cancun . By far this is one of my favorites! My wedding was amazing they accommodated 57 of us and treated us like royalty . Also, the cleanness is great. They sanitize every table after every use . They are safe and follow all protocols . I will definitely be back. Food was also so delicious ! The mahi mahi was the best! Our server Daniel , chef Santiago and captain Esmeralda are great as well. Overall this is a must when coming with family or as a couple.

10. Pros & Cons
Things we LOVE:
- Panama Jack is part of Playa Resorts – we love working with these guys it’s always high-level service, easy and effective. For example, they have been great through the whole COVID pandemic and have shown impeccable leadership for others in the hotel industry to follow suit.
- The hotel isn’t overwhelmingly big.
- Great range of wedding packages to choose from.
Things we don’t love as much:
- If you are not into the hustle and bustle on vacation, Cancun may not be the location for you. Luckily, there is a Panama Jack in Playa del Carmen too if you were looking for somewhere a little more laid back.
- Sometimes they do operate more than one wedding a day.
