    So I'm trying to fit a lot into a short period of time - Am I crazy and what do you think?
    Day 1 - Arrive mid-afternoon Cancun airport, visit Azul Beach and Azul Vew showcase room
    Night 1 - Stay at Paradisus Riviera Cancun
    Day 2 - morning mtg with PRC WC
    Day 2 - possibly look into offsite options through Yazmin in Puerto Morelos (if I love Azul Beach for hotel (they won't allow me to get married there due to my wedding size).
    Day 2 - day visit Grand Sunset Princess (anyone know how to schedule a mtg?)
    Night 2 - Stay at Grand Sirenis OR Grand Palladium - ?? - Which of these should I stay at? I don't have time to stay at both! Tour/mtg w/WC at one of them
    Day 3 - Visit the other choice (btwn Grand Sirenis and Grand Palladium) and meet w/WC there
    Day 3 - Lunch at Al Cielo and mtg with WC there
    Night 3 - Stay at Dreams Tulum and meet with WC there
    Day 4 - make decision, return to Cancun airport for mid-afternoon flight.
    note: Grand Sirenis and Grand Palladium may be for our stay only and I may get married at Al Cielo.

        Well I was told you get the best feeling for a place by staying there b/c then you see the kinks of it all - and the beach/water and the food are important to me so...ugh I don't know! I forgot about CRT - that was supposed to be on the list for visiting around the same time as Grand Sirenis and Palladium. I think I need to change my flight to add an extra night .

          You are totally right, the only way to know if you like the place is to stay, so be calm you will make great decisions! and if you need to add one night, consider it as a vacation... LOL

            Honestly it sounds like you are trying to do a LOT. If at all possible I would DEFINITELY add on another night. Generally I find myself just getting used to things by day 3 & 4 - and that's just staying at 1 hotel! Also, if it were me I would narrow the amount of hotels you physically spend the night in to 2 hotels that you are considering for you & your guests to stay in. It really does sound like a lot of moving around. You can still make day time appointments to go visit the other places but at least you can cut down the time spent packing/unpacking/traveling by 50%. I hope that makes sense...

            On a positive note, it sounds like you are really motivated! I think you will get a lot out of your visit with that mindset - just try not to overwhelm yourself.

            We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

                Well, I'm thinking of cutting out Dreams Tulum b/c they only allow buffet for more than 50 on the beach, and I'm having more than 50 but want a sit-down dinner. Yet everyone who has a Dreams Tulum wedding loves it. I'm so conflicted!

                  I did a whirlwind tour similar to yours (different places, but similar in number and running up and down highway 307). It was busy, yes, but we managed to get a really good idea of all the places. Stayed at the ones we were most interested in, and I will say that -- while not relaxing -- it really helped us get a good idea for the places. Just entering a bedroom in one of them told us it wasn't anywhere we wanted to be...and spending time with people working in another place made plopping down our suitcases just feel like home.

                  We did it in 5 days, four nights. I will say that your day three seems pretty crowded and might benefit from stretching it out into one more day, if you can afford it. If not, well, I think you'll do just fine. =)

                  Good luck!

                      lyrebard, Where did you look and where did you stay? I'm still undecided about the last night - either Dreams Tulum if I decide buffet is ok, Grand Palladium if I decide I'm for sure having the wedding at Al Cielo, Azul Beach if I get stuck on Azul View?, or some little place in Tulum or Isla Mujeres if I hate the rest of the area? Obviously I'm clueless! I've read too many forums!

                      lovefreddy, I'll definitely post pics!
