Gran Bahia Principe Akumal/Tulum/Coba - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Ok so that was alot easier to find then I thought it would be. Blackberry, I love you. lol

 

So here is what Karla wrote to me when I asked about the required documents.

 

REQUIRED DOCUMENTS

 

 

Valid passports. In case the bride's name is not the same in her passport than in her birth certificate and she wants to get married with the same name of her birth certificate she should bring her birth certificate (original) apostilled by the government of her country and translated into Spanish by a Mexican official translator (stamped). Driver license will not be accepted by the official.

 

If the bride is widowed or divorced is necessary to bring her birth certificate (original) apostilled by the government of her country and translated into Spanish by a Mexican official translator (stamped), according to Mexican Law the bride must be 12 months divorced before remarrying. If the groom is widowed or divorced no additional documents are required.

 

Tourist Card. Clients get this card upon arrival at the airport in Mexico.

 

Medical Documentation: Blood tests (Sexually Transmitted diseases - VDRL, HIV, Blood Type) and medical certification stating that all results were negative and patient is physically in good health. Blood tests have to be done here in Mexico, we have a clinic at the Resort - (approximate cost: 90.00 USD per person).

 

Four witnesses: two for the bride and two for the groom with valid passport. The witnesses have to be older than 18 years. All witnesses must come in person to the appointment with the wedding coordinator with their valid passport and tourist card at least 4 labor days prior to the wedding date.

 

 

Kind regards,

 

Karla Rabadan

I don't think anything needs to be translated beforehand...unless you were married / divorce and your last name shows up different on your passport and birth certificate. Is this correct?

Awww so I wasted $120 for nothing...lol! Oh well guess it's better to have it just incase :) Thanks for the info girls!!

2 months to go! woohoo!

Oh I also got some info from Karla, that if you don't want a DJ for your private reception patry after the dinner, you can bring your ipod full of your fav songs and they will hook it up to some speakers for you (for $20). So you can have your dances. I thought that would be a good peice of info if your on a budget like us!

Awesome! That is great info b/c we were hoping to just use our Ipod for the reception and get a docking station for it, but now we don't have to! Thanks :)

I assume May 2010. ;-) I was assigned Jazmin but instead Karla has been te one responding to my e-mails. My assumption is that Jazmin is no longer there. Either way you're assigned you WC according to which hotel you're in, if I'm not mistaken.

Oh I know how to do that too...I think.

 

If you go to your profile and click on the album you want to share, at the bottom of the page it will say "Share this album with anyone by sending them this public link:" Copy and paste the link here and it should work.

 

Here's mine to test it out...

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
