    Hey guys...

    so im thinking of doing it at riviera maya jan 2009

    I was talking to some people about the weather in Riviera Maya in Jan.. and they said that you cant really go swimming in the ocean bc the waves are just too vicious.. is that true? anyone been there or had a wedding there in jan and can tell me how it was?

    the second question i have is resorts.. i was looking at riu palace riviera maya, riu palace mexico, and dreams tulum... its hard to choose considering ive never been there? any advice.. im having about 100 people and i want a more formal elegant wedding.. im thinking of having it in a gazebo overlooking the ocean, at sunset with candles.. i can picture it in my head, just dont know which place would be the best for what im looking for...

    any advice would sooooo greatly be appreciated!

      I don't know about the waves, but january is peak season & will be more expensive.

      There is a lot of info about those resorts on this forum that should help you decide.

        Hello!
        January is high seasson... the ocean normally is great but the weather is a little bit more "cold" or "fresh" than the rest of the year, specially during the night.

        If you want a more formal elegant wedding between those 3 resorts i will suggest to go with the Riu Palace wich is in the Playacar hotel zone in the heart of Playa del Carmen. Otherwise there is Dreams Tulum wich is beautiful but totally different style and an hour from Playa del Carmen. Those 2 hotels are totally different.

        Think about your guests and where do you want to be? at Playa del Carmen or near Tulum? Because those 2 are totally different and away one from the other.

        Best Regards, Yazmin.

          I did a site visit at the Occidental GRand. It has a beautiful gazebo over looking the ocean. Very elegant

            I definitely think the waves/ocean depend on what resort and area within the Riviera Maya you stay. We were married at the Iberostar in March and the waves were perfect! I would definitely look under the Mexico thread to find lots of information for the different resorts! Happy planning!
