I am anxious to book and get the ball rolling. I have a few questions, I am looking for somewhat current prices for the wedding packages, pool side reception info., private function information, flowers prices etc. I clearly do not have enough posts to open the pdf documents (its very frusterating..I am working on getting enough though!). I was wondering if anyone had any of that information if they could email it to me at shyerone@hotmail.com I pretty much want to assess the costs, ensure I am making the right decision...the other closest resort in the running is the dreams tulum...however, quite expensive! eeek. Thanks for the help!.
    I just emailed you...

        Hi I'd like to re-introduce myself. I'm now Cheryl Scott!!!

        We got home early this evening to a little bit of snow and a lot of cold wind. What a shock to go in a few hours from +35C to +5C! (95f to 41f). So far this evening we've started the laundry, did some light cleaning, watched a movie, started uploading photos...all on top of panicking because DH managed to lose his Dr Lic and Military ID somewhere between Edmonton and Cancun. Oy. Please keep your fingers crossed we find them... soon!

        The wedding week.
        Really surprising to both of us... EVERYONE GOT ALONG! REALLY WELL! Wahoo!! The whole time was insane trying to watch over, check on, visit with as many people as we could. It was like having a week long reception! We checked facebook a couple times after everyone left and there were friend requests flying everywhere!

        The wedding itself.
        It was incredible. Crazy. Busy. Overwhelming. Perfect. Everything ... well other than security making our wedding late because they stopped the Mayan couple doing the ceremony and our marimba band we hired and wouldn't let them in until our wedding coordinator Eugenia saved the day! It made everything run a little later than it was supposed to so we kind of got gypped a little there but all in all... it was amazing. It was an incredible ceremony. I'm waiting for the video of it because honestly I don't remember too much of it! It just seemed to go really fast and then really slow all at once! It was so hard to just focus on remembering everything.

        A few memories that I do have....

        The Mayans were throwing all these beans at/around/near and on us... one went down my dress. LOL. I whispered that it had to DH and we both started giggling away in the middle of the ceremony.

        MOH snugging me into my corset dress! I didn't have a pole to hang onto like they did in the old days so I kept losing my footing!

        DH crying his eyes out when we had our "First Look" photos done. Made me cry seeing how happy and in love he is with me

        Throwing our basketful of beans/seeds and flowers out into the ocean & our own personal private moment on the rocks before we did

        Our first dance and him whispering all the while to me ... slow slow quick quick...

        I'll have a bunch of pics to share tomorrow and I'll do a full resort review of both our wedding/reception as well as where we went for our honeymoon!

                  Hi ladies! Just a quick question, me and my guests are all going to be staying at COBA, are we allow to use the bars at the Tulum and Akumal side? Thanks! :)
