obviously I'm more towards AKumal. I LOVED Akumal. It's slightly newer than Tulum and I LOVED my wedding site. It was perfect!!
Yuritzia is terrible with e-mail communications, but once you get there she delivers 110%

    Thanks for all the info. I am leaning more towards Akumal mostly for the beach site. I read some reviews about the beach being rocky and not so great. Did anyone else have this experience? How far is Akumal from the disco?

    It is true. The beach is pretty rocky. It didn't stop our guests from playing it in though.
    One really nice thing about the beach being rocky is that the wedding location on the Akumal side is NOT swimmable. Which means you don't end up with bikinis and speedos in your wedding photos!!

    The disco is pretty much the same distance from all of the resorts. They all require a tram ride and it's about 10-15 minutes total.

      One last question before I leave. I know the poolside reception is $17 for the first hour per person for the bar, right? What about the second hour? Is it still $17 or a smaller amount?

      I am going to bed in a little bit because I have to be up at 3am, I hope someone can help me! :)

        Who did you use for photography? I've email Claudia Rodriguez a couple times b/c I hear she's the best but she hasn't responded. Any other suggestions?

              1kpaine - We used Citlalli of Claudia Rodriguez. It took a few days to get an intial response from them. Were you using the email function from their website? If not, here is the email address I have for Claudia: Click the image to open in full size.

              I'm pretty sure the packages and prices have changed since we went but here they are anyway:

                Okay, I finally found some pictures of inside the disco. They are from Click the image to open in full size.

                The pictures don't do it any justice (our pictures of our first dance look A LOT nicer than these do - I'm sorry I can't post them, they are on a friends camera).

                ETA: I think these pictures are from 2006 (I don't remember the blue on the ceiling).

                I had the blood tests done and it's not a big deal at all. They actually used to require blood tests in the US too... but have since stopped. Basically, I was told you can't have STD's, AIDS, or be brother & sister! :)
