Mexico All Inclusive Wedding

Mary asks…

I’m looking for a small all-Inclusive reosrt to get married?

We’ve just returned from a tiny Island in Mexico called Holbox and stayed at a wonderful resort called Villas Paraiso del Mar. There was 36 little huts on the beach – Perfect for a wedding but the beach wasn’t that great and it was very far from the airport. We are looking for a beach front resort, all in-clusive that would accomodate between 70 to 100 people. I hope to reserve the entire resort for the wedding. We are open to anywhere in Caribbean and Central America. Do you know of any places?

Tijuana answers:

Come to Antigua, it’s one of the best honeymoon islands in the Caribbean. The weather is usually lovely that time of year. We’ve got 365 lovely beaches, warm, friendly accommodating people. Like so many of the Caribbean Islands, we have breath-taking sunsets and beautifully moon and starlit skies at night.

If you like all-inclusive with your wedding package, then Sandals Antigua is the place for you. Http://www.sandals.com/general/resorts-a…

Check out http://www.antiguanice.com and for things to do check out http://www.adventureantigua.com/……

Sandals resort is a top pick but there are others you could use such as Galley Bay Resort http://www.changes.com/resorts/galley-bay/
http://www.changes.com/resorts/jolly-beach/ (this is somewhat out of the main city – so if you want to be in the capital, you might not want to use this one, however, the capital is only about a 20 minute taxi ride away)

Wedding in Occidental Grand Flamenco Resort in Riviera Maya?

My fiance and I are flying out to Mexico June 2007 to get married in the above resort. Has anyone on here been to that resort, or even got married over there? What can I expect?

Also has anyone been to Xcaret Park – and can you advise me on price and what to expect. Thanks

Tijuana answers:

I love this resort! I went last January and we are going again in June. The pools are beautiful and the beach is small, but well maintained (even beach bar service!) You can relax…look at the sea…and have someone bringing you refreshing fruity beverages (and it is all included!) We found that even though your tips are included, a few dollars here and there gets you FABULOUS service! The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is someone assigned to every building to assist you with dinner reservations and booking tours. HINT: schedule ALL of your dinners on your first day. They tend to fill fast and although the buffet is VERY good, a served dinner is better!
Xcaret park is very nice (and included in your package). The snorkeling was very good (a little cool temp wise, but you adjust quickly). The horse show is very good…sit at the restaurant next to the horse show and order a margarita (very good and very large) you will have a good seat and a good drink at the same time. The evening show is worth watching. It is a little long, but informative and the costuming and music is very entertaining.
As far as the evening entertainment at the resort…it is a little campy (cruise line like), but the drinks are great and we found that it was then that we met some amazing people from around the globe! The disco was barren…we found that we just invited a bunch of folks that we met the swim-up pool bar (under a water fall) and folks from the evening performance up to the disco and created our own party! Make it what you want it!
Another VERY GOOD MUST DO thing is Xel-Ha. It is an eco-park with beautiful snorkeling, good food, cliff jumping etc. Go for the all inclusive booked through the hotel. It includes transportation, food, all drinks alcoholic and non, snorkeling, towels, lockers etc. It is worth it! Xel-Ha is the closest to the garden of Eden that I can think of.
THe most beautiful snorkeling is off shore. Take the Maroma Catamaran Snorkel tour. It is a few hours of sailing and 3 snorkel dives. THe reef is the 2nd largest (Australia #1) and is beautiful!!! The starfish are the size of dinner plates!
The ferry to Cozumel is only about 4 miles from the resort and costs around $12 US. Shopping is pretty good (silver, opals, onyx, etc) The open air markets are good for bartering and you can get a good deal on many items.

As you can see, I have a passion for this area! I loved my experience there and I hope that you have a magical time as well.

Hope this was helpful!

Mark asks…

Destination Wedding and Best time to Travel?

We are looking at either Cuba or Mexico for the wedding.
What’s the best time of year to travel to these places?
We are also hoping to find a rather secluded resort, some place a bit more private. Any ideas?
Have you done the destination wedding thing? What was your experience like?
What are the pros and cons of destination weddings?
I’m Canadian – no restrictions for me.

Tijuana answers:

I’m not really sure about cuba, unless you fly to mexico first and then to cuba, because of the restrictions the us has with them. But in mexico, you might want to avoid the time period from now until about oct. Because they can have hurricans (like Dolly which is hitting them right now) and people could get sequestered there for longer than your wedding.
Cabo San Lucus is nice, so it Baja California, which might offer the seclutions you’re looking for, with least hurricans (its on the pacific side.) if you type in Mexican Resorts they should have an all inclusive list. The paso is about 5 to one right now, if i’m not mistaken, meaning for every 5 pasoes some thing cost, its one dollar, but most resort towns take us money.

Pros of a destiantion wedding
The honeymoon can start right away.
Everyone could use a vaction and they’ll love you for it.
Most are all inclusive and offer discounts for the party and guest.

Cons
you might not get gifts (but you might get cash)
you’ll need to give everyone time to get passports (about 6-8 weeks at least)
some people won’t be able to go.
Everything will need to be finalized at least 2 months before you leave. (this may be a pro)
hope this helps
