The Itinerary

That One Weekend In Mérida

Spending just one evening celebrating our union with our nearest and dearest just didn't feel like enough! We wanted more... we wanted a long weekend... to getaway... time to soak it all in... time to spend with everyone we love.

The weekend will be an adventure to somewhere new together. We hope you enjoy!
