    We have not decided yet, we will find out this Saturday, Thank goodness!. I am super excited to just pick a place already. Finding a place seems to be the most stressful! Only because the last travel agents we have seen keep coming back with prices $1,500 and up not including taxes and I really wanted to keep it around $1,200 with tax.

    Ohh so exciting! Which resorts are you looking at if you don't mind me asking! You should definitely be able to find one in Cuba for under 1300$. We got ours for under 1200$ including taxes! and we are going to Iberostar Laguna Azul in May!

    I went to the Iberostar Laguna Azule last August, beautiful hotel!

     

    At this point I am fairly easy going as long as it's a hotel that is kept up well/not  run down and I would really like a 5 star hotel as hotels are a little differnt in Cuba but I really like the the Melia Las Dunas hotel my parents went there and loved it! and I think its beautiful but its a little far for any kind of day trips and my FI loves RIU hotels (right next to yours)

    Yeah I looked at the Melia Las Dunas... They seem to do an amazing job with weddings and I would have liked to have it there, but we decided its just too far removed from anything else. A lot of our guests haven't been to Cuba before so I wanted to be close to Havana. The Playa Pesquero in Holguin is also a great resort for weddings! We were there two years ago and just loved it! Were thinking of going there, but eventually decided Varadero was where we wanted to go... My FI hasn't been to Varadero and we wanted to Havana. I am sure which ever one you choose will be amazing! We have a Cuba thread.. it says its for Iberostar Laguna Azul brides but we really have all brides from Cuba lol cause there aren't many of us if you're looking for a Cuba thread!
