    Melissa! Keep an eye out for the huppah... Erin managed to get a picture, but it was kind of far away. That's my only request for photos!

    For those of you going very soon.. could you check and see if they have an ATM on site? I checked the DPC board and back in the fall they didn't have one, but I asked to see if it had changed and no one wrote back yet. I am just curious to know if there is, in case we want or need to take out more cash!

      Hi Nat!

      I actually read a review today in Travel advisor where they noted that there isn't an atm on the property and that they charge you $48 if you want any money taken from your credit card! (meaning you go to the front desk and ask them to charge your card and give you the cash).

            melissa, most of us just left our phones at home since we didn't have international service. my dad and stephany both had theirs though (lucky blackberry fools) and they had no problems at all!

            nat, the huppah is literally a wooden frame with white fabric on it. it it shaped just like a bamboo huppah, but it's made out of plywood and 2x4s instead. i may have a better picture at home.. i'll try to look through them tonight! and the ATM thing is such a pain! hopefully they have a better option by the time you get down there!

                We were just there about 2 weeks ago - and no ATM! I was surprised too. They have a cash-changing desk, but if you take out US dollars, they charge a lot - My fiance wanted to take $100 and they were going to charge $30 or $40 for the transaction. They explained to him that it was because they take the money in pesos and then have to exchange it. We ended up taking pesos and it was a little cheaper.

                      To the girls who only have a month to go until their wedding: How much do you actually have planned with the wedding coordinator as of right now? Also, is the wedding coordinator more responsive the closer it gets?
                      I have had pretty much all my questions answered so I am tyring to accept the fact that I will just wait until I get down there to finalize everything.
