    Well, I definitely found a better rate than what my TA was giving me - here's what the website Playa del Carmen Airport Transfers | Cancun - Playa del Carmen ground transportation gave me. ALSO - I should find my date twins and hook up and get the same rate for all of us - if we combine all of our weddings together maybe that's an even bigger discount we could get!!

    Here's the email I got from them:

    Having everyone book their own service would work best. A percentage discount is better than a rate per person. Right now, a private round trip service for 2 people arriving alone with the discount would be 85USD. If more people book at once (same arrival/departure) the costs go down.
    We also provide shared transportation, but those units stop at other hotels as well, so I don’t think is the best option.

    The children travel free in the private units. For the infant if a special baby seat is required than he is counted as a person.

    I repeat, there are public rates visible on our website, but with the group code the discount applies, and the guests are notified of this prior to booking so they can rest assured they receive the best rate. You just have to let everyone know the discount code (post it on your wedding website/ send it by email). A dedicated link with info for the event can be set up on our webpage.

      I think it depends on when you booked. The rates changed at some point to $300/vendor now. If you were quoted the $100 keep those emails and use them! At some point they may try to go back and tell you it is $300. Treat those emails like gold!

        I would be careful because it is up to the Royal to determine the outside vendor fee. I believe it recently went up in the past few months.

          The vendor rate is listed in your contract, that is the rate they will honor. The rate depends on when you booked your wedding.

                    I'm having second thoughts and thinking of do the legal stuff here (if the city hall here doesn't make you say the vows- I just basically want to go to city hall sign the paperwork, get on the plane and off we go) the thing is we are only telling our parents and no one else. Im nervous about people finding out during the ceremony we are already married. Does anyone know how real it appears doing just symbolic?

                    I would appreciate any advice on this....
                    We just decided to get one of FI's friends (who isn't coming to the wedding) ordained in our state (TX) and have him marry us. That way we don't have to do any of the "formal" marriage stuff before our symbolic wedding (no kiss, no ring exchange and no vows). We haven't confirmed everything 100%, but I've researched quite a bit and it seems really easy and cheap. We're not telling anyone if we can help it, either.

That's a good idea Jen, saying we signed the certificate the day before...that's what I'm going with too!!

                    One other question, has anyone found out when you do the wedding at home, is there a way not to do the vows and ring exchange? I literally want to go to city hall sign paperwork and say OK now we're married, but I'm not sure if that is legal...I guess I could call city hall and find out.
                    Oh no! Your wedding and reception is very real and not fake at all no matter where you have it! Don't let anyone, even mom, make you feel otherwise
