    I'm getting a Ketubah (Jewish marriage contract) and it asks for the city and state where I'm getting married - I'm not sure what to put on it since Al Cielo doesn't seem to be in a specific town? Does anyone know the area better than me in order to provide more info? It is on Xpu Ha Beach, next to Esencia...
    Or I could put:
    Riviera Maya, Mexico
    Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo, Mexico
    Xpu Ha Beach, Riviera Maya, Mexico
    Xpu Ha Beach, Quintana Roo, Mexico
    ??

      I would check the website of the hotel and see how they do it. Or ask them for their official address.

        Obviously I checked the website, it just wasn't very clear - maybe it is Solidaridad?
        Al Cielo
        Carretera Federal Cancun-Tulum KM 118
        Xpu-Ha Beach 1.5
        CP 77710 (Riviera Maya)
        Solidaridad, Quintana Roo
        Mexico

        I'm getting legally married in Los Angeles, but want my symbolic contact to be accurate for what I'm counting as my real wedding day :).

        OK, yes, you should put: Solidaridad as city, Quintana Roo as state, Mexico as country then.

          I had a similar problem. Our hotel is in Xcaret... which is in Riviera Maya... which is in Quintana Roo... which is in Mexico (obviously) :) AND the hotel website had "Solidaridad" on its contact info. I called my WC, who told me to go with Xcaret as the town, so I just went with "Xcaret, Mexico"

            I'm with Maura!

            Solidaridad as city, Quintana Roo as state, Mexico as country then

            I also remember Quintana Roo as the state when I was filling out paperwork on the flight to Mexico for customs.

              Might be worth checking with your WC to see whether she says Solidaridad or Xpu Ha. I might be tempted to say: Xpu Ha, Quintana Roo, Mexico. (We're saying Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico in ours.)

              Speaking of, which design did you end up going with?

                Funny thing - it turns out that the newketubah.com owner/artist is my friend's best friend from high school. I didn't get a discount or anything, but she is fitting me in even though I'm so last minute (with a rush fee), and I figured a friend of a friend business is a good thing. We're going with the tree, and the secular text. I'm putting the order in tomorrow. What about you? May I mention you to her too?

                  That IS odd. But a nice coincidence! I was hoping you went with them, as the design of it seems sorta your style. (At least, from what I've gathered on here, lol.)

                  I actually posted the link to newketubah.com on here a few months ago -- I really like her stuff! Thanks for the offer, but we're already using her! I've already been in touch with the artist (Tsilli), and she's helping us put together a slightly more custom piece, sort of a cross between a ketubah and a Quaker wedding certificate, with space for all our guests to sign. =)

                  We're going with the birds design, as I've always liked birds and --after dating me for six years -- the boy has fallen in love with my little parrot and become a bit of a bird person, too. lol.
