      Great location!

      We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

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

        heidi&alex - where are you having your reception?
        We are getting married right next door at The Royal Playa del Carmen, the sister resort of yours. I had a hard time as my nephew is coming so I was searching for a place that would allow kids but I also wanted to be close to town. We're going to stay at the Royal and have our wedding there but guests with children (or whoever else wants) will be staying at the Gran Porto Real (and can attend our weddding). Plus we have reciprocal privelages for each resort so it will work out.... I was also searching for a beach that wasn't eroded and the beach there seemed fine.
        We are getting married in the gazebo at 4 pm (wanted a beach wedding but decided against it for the privacy issues) and having our reception on the beach.
        If you have any questions feel free to PM me. When is your wedding date in May? We'll be leaving for the Royal on May 28 so we could potentially be there at the same time!

          Yea we opted to do the symbolic ceremony and just get legally married here at home. That way, we don't have to be in Mexico way in advance and to be honest, I really don't like needles! To opt out of doing the blood test was reason enough, lol. Plus doing the symbolic ceremony just seemed a lot simpler to do.
          I am starting to wish we would have done the same because I am unbelievably terrified of needles too! Just the thought of some Mexican doctor coming into my hotel room and shoving a needle into me makes me sick to my stomach!

                I am getting Married at the Gran Porto Real Resort, but am having the ceremony next door at the Royal at the gazebo there...we have a large group expected about 65 people so we needed a larger space. I am still working out alot of the details but so far everyone there as been great. Do you have any helpful tips?
