    I'm planning on getting married Jun '09 and want to do a site visit to a few places in Rivera Maya. How do you go about this? Do you contact the WC at each resort and tell them what days your coming and do you stay at each hotel or just 1 the whole time? I know these questions may be a little silly but just not sure.

    Thanks!

      My plan was to narrow down to my top 3- which then became my top 2 places really once the coordinator wasn't getting back to me after several emails/calls. You set it up with the wedding coordinator and let her know that you are doing a site visit and pick a day/time to see the resort and meet with her.

      good luck!

        Yep - I'd do what Phoebe said. Plan your trip - Narrow your list down to two or three places you want to see. Take a good look at their wedding packages and see if there are any out of pocket expenses, (do they provide a cake, flowers etc.). Consider any othe places you MAY need to get anything from, (beauty salons, grocery stores, vases,) check out those places as well. Maybe try an excursion on a tour company if you are considering doing that during your wedding with your wedding guests. If you are booking a local band or DJ try to see where they are playing while you are there and go check them out. Check out some recommended restaurants too for rehearsal dinner, welcome dinner, etc. Just try to get as much info as you can during your trip. Pay attention to taxi fares and the distance to shopping - things like that.

        It seems like a lot, but in the end you'll have a lot of your questions answered and it will give you a HUGE piece of mind!

        Congrats and good luck!

          Hey Candie!

          We stayed at 1 hotel but emailed/called the WCs at each place we wanted to visit to set up a time with each of them and scheduled them far enough in between and also saw how close they were in between eachother to give us a good idea of how long it would take to travel and get a taxi, etc.
          Also, we made sure to review the wedding packages beforehand to see which ones were in our budget and offered things that we wanted, etc. :)
