    We used Olympus tours in December and then American Express in April. It is almost 2 hours from the Cancun airport-that is why it is so expensive

      @vlynnw, thanks for posting that article. It will be convenient to have an airport in Tulum, however, I'm not sure how I feel about this ( quote from article):

      "The Costa Maya, a 60-mile stretch of untouched paradise, along Mexico’s Caribbean coast, is now being developed into Mexico’s next big tourist destination."

      At least the goal is to keep the new development sustainable and eco-friendly.

        Thank you Beth! I checked the Olympus tours and they want $435 for all of us (there are actually 6 adults in our group, not 7). American Express quotes only $152 round trip. Was their van nice, comfortable and air conditioned? We have two small children, so it's important. It's such a big difference in price, seems strange.

          Just make sure it is a private transfer. You dont want to be going to other resorts on your way with that large of a party. It will be annoying.
          The van was perfect. Air conditioned and very comfortable

            Great info, thanks. They do say it is private transportation.

              I just got an email back from Aurora today about ceremony time and I'm kinda bummed. I had my heart set on a 5pm ceremony but she said 12, 2, and 4 are the only options. I'm booking a year 1/2 in advance and I can't have a 5pm ceremony. Does Dreams never offer a 5pm ceremony?

                My ceremony was originally set for 5 but i changed it to 4. If you have it at 4will it really make that much of a difference?

                  It just throws off the timing of everything else, I was trying to prevent things from being spread out because I don't want my reception starting to early and ending early.

                    What time were you hoping to start the reception? I believe most receptions start around 6-6:30pm (regardless of the time of ceremony) and end 4 hours later. Therefore receptions must end at 10-10:30pm.(for outdoor receptions)

                    Aurora agreed to extend my reception until 11pm

                    Don't forget the cocktail hour, that could be from 5:30-6:30pm....if you have the ceremony at 4pm, you'l have plenty of time for pics before the reception.

                    I personally think an hour earlier is better than an hour later....

                      I didn't want to start the reception until at least 7 simply because they only allot 3 hours for you and we were planning on extending until 11. I also was going to have the cocktail from 6-7. Now I'll do the 4pm ceremony and I guess have some lag time until the cocktail and reception time. I'm not worried about making sure there is time for pics since I intended on doing these during the cocktail hour anyway. I'm bringing my photog with me and she's pretty much at my disposal. I just have to decide if I want to start the reception a little earlier than intended or not. Thanks for your input, I think starting the cocktail hour just a little later will be the best solution and give guests some extra time to take care of things for the reception begins.
