    Hey Ladies,

     

    We've been home for just over a week now. We had an amazing time, thank you all for your help & suggestions.

     

    I created a review of the resort if anyone is interested. Beware it's long!

    Once we get some more photos from our photgrapher, I'll post them. Here are the sneak peaks from our TTD & wedding day. Sorry they're so large.

    We did the TTD just outside of the akumal golden beach.

          Thanks for the review AD2012 and congratulations.

           

          Have a fab time Coba Bride 2012. Cannot wait for your review and pics.

           

          Just a quick question for everyone. I am travelling from the UK and am hearing mixed opinions on the best currency to take. Some people say that the currency is the peso so take the peso. Some recommend the US dollar. All the prices of things at the hotel are in dollars. When we visited Mexico before we were recommended to take the US dollar but that was about 10 years ago and things may have change since then. Plus we still got change in peso's anyway so got confusing. Any advice?

           

          I know we won't need to carry too much money with being all inclusive. Mainly for tips and excursions. Do most people pay for the wedding by card?

          When I was there in January I paid with US dollar.  They did give me change in pesos, but it was small amounts. 

           

          I paid for my wedding (back in 2008... sorry!) all on credit card.  I also paid for my incidentals (room safe) on my credit card this past January.

            You're safe with either but I think USD are more prominent over there.

            Speaking of paying for wedding related stuff....I know certain things are to be paid in cash - like the wedding officiant

            Does anyone have a list of who will need to be paid in cash and what can be paid on CC??

              Sunshine -  You have to pay for the blood tests & deposit on your wedding package in cash.Your WC will take the deposit at your meeeting.  Everything else can be put on your CC or charged to your room. When I had spoke with Jazmin about how to pay for eveything she said i could pay by CC at first then told me I needed cash for the deposit right before we left.

               

              Fraggle - USD is fine, that's what we had. If you go to any vendor and they give you a total in Peso's they can convert it on the spot for you and give you the total in USD.

              Oh yeah, forgot about the blood tests.  The DJ also has to be paid in cash, or at least it had to be when I was there.
