Xanath was born and raised in Mexico as a middle child of a very close family of 9 (2 sibling, 5 dogs, mom+dad) and with a very unusual name that has aided as an icebreaker in many conversations.

With a wanderlust spirit and a very passionate soul, ever since she was young, Xanath has been a culture enthusiast and a world traveler. At a young age, Xanath started a career in the events industry – it was love at first sight! – . Focused in creating memorable experiences and attentive in providing guests with the highest service, Xanath has grown a passion for professionalism like no other.

We couldn’t have imagined a better experience.

The guest at our wedding had an amazing time and all the events were incredible. Xanath was absolutely fantastic, it would be a challenge to give her the appropriate amount of credit for the effort she put in, most importantly, everything was always done with a smile and warm attitude. Even before our planning visit, details with all of our options available had been prepared, making our planning visit very efficient. During the wedding weekend everything ran smoothly. We can’t really tell how much we appreciate all the effort and hard work put into our wedding.

Very talented and detailed wedding planner.

Xanath did a wonderful job of helping me to plan my wedding with the patience of a saint!! I am very visual and requested everything that we spoke about in pictures and she did an awesome job of providing that to me. My dream wedding has become a fairy tale because she added more details than I could have thought of and she was very hands on during the wedding. my wedding turned out so much fun and everyone ended up jumping into the pool at the end of the night. There was not a single complaint about the wedding, the families and guests still talks about it and said it was the best wedding ever!

We can’t say enough nice things

No review will do justice, but generally speaking Xanath was an absolute pleasure to deal with, beyond accommodating, and handled every little detail of our wedding with the utmost professionalism and ensured everything was perfect — from the wedding on the beach to the reception. Would highly recommend Banyantree Mayakoba and Xanath for any wedding or other event.
