If you are a citizen of another country and you would like to get married in Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, you can do so under the Laws of Mexico which are recognized world-wide.
In Mexico a religious wedding is not mandatory for your marriage to be valid. The official part with the Civil Judge is enough because it's the legal action recognizer by domestic and international authorities.
The documents required for foreigners to be able to legally be wed in Mexico are... for both consorts...
Make photocopies of ALL the documents required. For passports, photocopy the part that has the passport number, your name and photo. You MUST present both the originals and copies and they will return you the originals after verification. You'll get the Marriage Certificate after the ceremony is held.
If the ceremony would be held outside the Civil Court House, they will charge approx. US$250.00 for the Judge external services and will depend on the day of the week, time and location of the ceremony. This charge is in addition to the license fee when the ceremony is held outside the courthouse.
The extra fee (external wedding fee) includes that the Judge will attend to the place you previously selected for the wedding to take place such as at your hotel, in a villa, a restaurant, right on the beach, on a cliff overlooking our town or bay, etc. You'll have many beautiful and marvelous options to make it an unforgettable moment in your life.
Just check with hotels or inns, we are sure they will have the right package to fit your plans or make a special one... according to your needs.
We have a few Wedding Planners in town. Some will plan your wedding at the place of your choice but others will only do it in certain hotels. Check around and it is wise to ask for references of their services.
