The new Dreams Tulum thread! (Post all DT Qs&As here)

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to report another time Landy has said she would honor the '07-'08 prices because I booked (with Sandra) earlier this year before the new prices came out. It took one simple email to confirm--no haggling whatsoever. I was quite pleased. She just asked me to remind her on arrival, and of course as other brides have suggested, I will bring a print out of the email.

I wrote Lizete an e-mail regarding which private outdoor reception areas are allowed to have music, I also asked if they are able to do receptions at the lobby terrace just in case anyone else was thinking the same... will post the info she sends me.
Sunbride, I totally agree with you about saving all the e-mails.... just in case

[COLOR="Black]ERnurse thank you so much for getting information about this exact topic. Can't wait to hear what you find out! I am trying to find an outdoor area that will allow music, but not require the $750 private event fee. (Maybe others are too?) I just want to make sure that if I do the beach or pool areas I can have music until 10:30 pm (we are just doing an ipod thing--no professional DJ) and not be charged. [/color]

Does anyone know how long of a ride playa del carmen is from tulum and how much does it cost to take taxi there approx? Or has anyone rented a shuttle or van from tulum to playa?

I wanted to have my bachelorete party at playa del carmen, no way of having it at home because all my bridesmaids are scattered throughout the country and one in england!!

Anyone else planning on having your bachelorete party when you get down to Tulum? What are you planning on doing?

Regarding a reception at one of the pool areas, does anyone know the limit to the number of people you could have? (We are looking at 40-50 guests; 4-5 round tables and a head table.)

I had understood that it is about 30 miles from Talum to PDC. (Though I have not been there.) I am interested in knowing taxi/shuttle prices also, b/c I too am planning a bachelorette in mexico. my maid of honor is currently researching the hot spots in PDC. Does anyone have suggestions of specific places?

I had the same issue for the bachelorette. The drive is about 45 minutes as it's pretty much half way to Cancun. The cost is 45$ by cab. Another option is the public bus, which is only 2$, but this is not recommended as a safe option in the evening, only a good option for shopping for the day. It obviously takes a little longer than the cab since it stops a lot, although I hear it's not too bad, about an hour.

Because it was so expensive to go to Playa Del Carmen (and because it was just my sisters and the two moms) we just did a mini bachelorette at the resort. I talk a bit about this in my review if you want to know what it was like.

She told me the other day that you could have a DJ on the beach

Chandra--the 45 is for the whole cab. Cabs are super expensive down there--I would try to look into renting a bus or someting because it's probably cheaper. And I agree with taking the bus or collectivo during the day, as when i was there, it was like a dollar a person to go to playa!

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
