Gran Caribe Real Cancun opens Roman Catholic chapel

Real Resorts has opened Cancun's only consecrated Roman Catholic resort chapel on the grounds of the 477-suite Gran Caribe Real Cancun.

The chapel is available for weddings, First Communions and other religious services and is the latest in the all-inclusive chain's growing list of romance-themed facilities and services, which also includes beachfront weddings and vow renewals, private Lear jet transportation to add from the U.S. and Canada, limousine transfers, nine nuptials packages, honeymoon deals and a la carte wedding arrangements.

The all-glass, beachfront Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Chapel was dedicated in April. There's no other resort in Cancun with a Catholic chapel consecrated by the local bishop. It's also unique in that the hotel can offer marriages on Sundays, when priests usually are not available.

The chapel is available to couples staying at the family-oriented Gran Caribe Real Cancun and the adjacent, adults-only the Royal Cancun. Real Resorts also offers Jewish, Protestant, civil and with its Mayan Experience wedding package shamanistic ceremonies at its five all-inclusive properties in Cancun and Playa del Carmen.
