      Senior Frogs is right next door to the Playacar Palace, which is about 15min from ASP.

        We had a free cocktail party because we had more than 75 room nights booked. But, im sure your guests would be fine with just going to the main lobby and hanging out until the wedding. Drinks are free and the lobby is absolutely gorgeous! Most of my guests didnt even stay for the entire cocktail hour. Some of them went back to their rooms to freshen up. I think youll be fine without the cocktail hour.

          Hey girls!

           

          Just when I thought life couldn't get any more hectic, it did!  Guess who had to go into emergency appendectomy surgery Tues am?  Yep, this girl!  Just what I need a week and a half before I leave for my wedding.  I got released from the hospital last night.  The doctor seems to think I will be fine by the time we leave but I am seriously stressing.  Oh and to top it off we are moving out of our house this Saturday into a new place that we just bought.  Shoot me now!!!

                  WOW - appendectomy surgery?! Perfect timing! (note sarcasm)...I'm so sorry to hear, but glad you're feeling better! I know it's easier said than done, but try not to stress - all your planning will pay off and soon you'll be in paradise marrying your best friend! Good luck with the move too!!

                    Jess, my FI and I went to Xcaret this past December when we went for a site visit to different resorts. Xcaret was fun...it was a pretty full day in order to see/do everything. It also costs about $100/person, so I think it's a bit pricey. It's basically a zoo/aquarium/nature park. There is an underground river to go snorkeling in, which was cool...its pretty dark in there and you don't see any fish until the very end. We also took a scenic tower up high and there was a great view from up there! My FI swam with sharks (for extra $$)...you can also pay more to swim with dolphins. At night there is Mexican-theme show that is neat, but a bit too long if you ask me. So like I said, it is pretty much a whole day thing, but we enjoyed it! It's a good thing for kids to do too (not sure if you have kids coming), but there is alot of walking.

                      Oh my goodness Alisa...hope you are feeling better!! Better that it happened the week before I guess and not in Mexico, if you want to look at the positives!

                       

                      I'm not sure if anyone is interested in this or not, but just thought I'd share! I came across what sounds like a great tour in the Riviera Maya...its called Edventure Tours and the company gets RAVE reviews on trip advisor. The cost is $75/person and they pick you up right from the resort. They take you snorkeling in the underground river cenotes of Dos Ojos, then to a lagoon to snorkel in a natural aquarium...all with a personal guide. You can also add on (for an extra charge) swimming with sea turtles ($10 extra), a zipline/cliff jump park ($20 extra), and the Mayan Ruins of Tulum ($7 extra). You can pick and choose certain activities or all of them, but the base price is $75. I think it sounds like a great way to see so many things in the Riviera Maya all in the same day!

                       

                      Their website is kinda silly and basic, but they get outstanding reviews on trip advisor, so it makes me want to try it! I'm thinking of planning this as an 'outing' for our group one day.
