              Hi Ladies, Have spent almost 4 hours glued to this thread there is sooooo much information its fantastic!!!!! I am getting married at this resort in May 2011 & can't decide which location to use? Can anyone who has married at the Akumal hammocks help me with something?? I am quite a bit shorter than my other half so really want to wear shoes with a bit of a heel, how did any of you guys find walking in the sand?? I know this may seem a daft question but I need a bit of height!!!! From the pictures it looks it is quite a way to walk to the 'alter' so there is no red carpet to help you walk on the sand.

              Thank all of your for your previous posts has help me so much already & am so excited I could burst!!!! :)

                The gazebo on the Tulum side is a stone pathway... I wore a small heel!!!

                  The Akumal hammocks location is all sand once you get off the road. And yes, it is quite a little bit of a walk. If you wear heels you will end up taking them off after a couple steps. I wore flip flops and I was ready to ditch them and go barefoot in no time! I'm alot shorter than DH (he's 6'3" and I'm 5'5") and we had no problems with the height in pics and stuff. In fact it just makes me look more petite than I really am!

                    Here's the best pic I could find to show how far it is. It doesn't really do a great job at showing it because there's actually a hill to go down there that you can't see from this angle.
