TULUM, Riviera Maya (Sept. 13, 2007) – Couples tying the knot on the beach at La Zebra in Tulum will take home lingering memories of their Mexican wedding filled with tropical romance, the delight of hand squeezed fresh juice margaritas, and a magical dusting of powdery white sand.

Unlike the crowded beaches of Cancun 1.5 hours to the north, the secluded beachfront and jungle chic design at La Zebra create an intimate atmosphere that is hard to find anywhere else. The mood shifts into celebration mode as guests arrive and stare in wonder at the sparkling Caribbean, the dazzling wide open beach and the postcard perfect coco palms swaying to the sounds of the waves and the breeze.

Weddings at La Zebra are designed to be dreamy and romantic, but are also infused with a taste of authentic Mexican traditions. Watch the moon rise over the sea as you exchange vows in a candlelit ceremony on the circular hardwood deck which wraps around two perfect tropical palms. And follow the celebratory sounds of live salsa music or strolling mariachis to the thatched roof restaurant and bar, where amazing appetizers and fresh fruit margaritas flow freely in preparation for the traditional flavors of the fiery Mexican grill.

“The intimate setting of La Zebra makes it ideal for small, private weddings. We like to create the perfect setting and help make a couple’s dreams come true,” says La Zebra General Manager Heather Froeming. “For people who choose to get married in Mexico, we want the whole experience to be infused with the unique flavors and passions of tropical Mexico. Otherwise, they could be getting married anywhere!”

For wedding parties, La Zebra’s authentic Mexican Cantina and Tequila Bar run by Lina and her sisters has three eclectic menu options. Or for the adventurous, Lina can prepare a special custom menu that caters to specific taste cravings. The appetizer menu features an ode to Mexican favorites: stuffed empanadas, traditional corn tamales, fresh seafood ceviche, and lots of guacamole and nachos.

The buffet and sit down menus bring flavors of Mexico to life with choices of winsome salads like mango and jicama with a balsamic vinaigrette or nopal cactus salad, main courses including slow-cooked lamb wrapped in banana leaves, tequila-lime seared lobster, shrimp kabobs, charcoal grilled snapper, and playful desserts such as watermelon-mint sorbet or coconut ice cream in a cinnamon-tortilla cup. The Tequila Bar is fast gaining a reputation as the coolest cocktail spot on the whole Riviera Maya. Top this off with a custom built sound system, a local latin DJ and the party can’t help but come alive!

After the festivities wrap up the party doesn’t have far to go with La Zebra’s nine stylish cabanas – which can be booked all together for a 10 percent discount – just a few sandy steps away. All rooms were recently remodeled using natural elements, and feature king sized beds draped in soft linens and extra roomy mosquito nets with overhead fans, river stone lined rain showers with 24 hour hot water, handcarved ornaments from Oaxaca, and La Zebra’s signature mini-bottle of tequila. Low season rates apply from September to November, and groups booking all nine cabanas receive a 10 percent discount off La Zebra’s additional services.

For an additional cost, an onsite wedding planner is available to coordinate all your needs, including music, flowers and decorations as well as civil ceremony requirements. And guests can also dive into “wild” activities including kiteboarding, snorkeling and sea kayaking, or simply relax on a beach lounge or hammock in the shade of a palm tree.
