About Hacienda Don Carmelo

Hacienda Don Carmelo is a stunning outdoor wedding venue located at the Escuela Puertorriqueña del Arte Ecuestre (Puerto Rican School of Equestrian Art) in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico. This property lies across 60 acres of rolling hills which overlook the Atlantic Ocean. The team at Hacienda Don Carmelo offers expert planning guidance and full-service wedding packages.

Facilities and Capacity

The gardens at Hacienda Don Carmelo offer discreet and romantic surroundings for a beautiful outdoor ceremony with a simple, natural backdrop for photos. The Secret Garden is suitable for ceremonies of up to 100 people and small receptions for 20 or less. Cocktail receptions are available under the Rain Tree, and more formal buffet receptions can take place at their Gazebo de El Rey for up to 100 guests. Tented areas and back-up spaces for inclement weather are also available for an additional fee.

Services Offered

Hacienda Don Carmelo offers a full range of services and wedding packages ranging from two-hour intimate celebrations for under 20 guests to more extended events for larger groups of 100. Their team will guide you through every step of your wedding planning and can create personalized packages if needed. Their most comprehensive wedding package includes a wedding ceremony in the Secret Garden followed by a three-course buffet-style reception at the Gazebo de El Rey. The package features personalized décor and wedding cake, hors d’ oeuvres, bouquets for the wedding party, and live music for the ceremony and reception. There will be a four-hour non-alcoholic open bar, and you can bring your own champagne and drinks with no corkage fee. Hacienda Don Carmelo can work with couples to create a personalized buffet menu.

History

Hacienda Don Carmelo was founded in 1964 by Don Carmelo Figeroa Rodriguez and his wife, Sara Padilla. The couple bred award-winning Paso Fino horses which have competed at competitions around the globe. The property is now home to the Puerto Rican School of Equestrian Art and has been featured on the Travel Channel on both Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations and Samantha Brown’s Places to Love.
