Riviera Maya, Mexico, and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic are among the most romantic destinations to tie the knot, according to a new study by Delta Vacations. The official vacation provider for Delta Air Lines compiled a list of top 10 romantic destinations for a destination wedding based on the number of booked hotel nights in 2017 by Delta Vacations customers with destination wedding packages. They are:

  1. Riviera Maya, Mexico
  2. Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
  3. Ocho Rios, Jamaica
  4. Negril, Jamaica
  5. Cancun, Mexico
  6. Montego Bay, Jamaica
  7. Castries, St. Lucia
  8. Nassau, Bahamas
  9. Los Cabos, Mexico
  10. Maui, Hawaii

The study included Delta Vacations' destinations across Latin America, the Caribbean and the U.S.

"With year-round temperate weather, a plethora of excursions, an array of accommodations of all types and unforgettable scenic backdrops, it's easy to see why many couples choose to get married in these destinations," said Elizabeth Moriarty, Delta Vacations vice president, product development, in a written statement.
