Any suggestions for something all of us would enjoy?
I thought when I was at the Dreams Tulum, one of their excursions included a dinner cruise but I'm not sure. That may be something that you could all enjoy together, but I don't know what that runs for. If you're interested in excursions, I'm sure you could email your wedding planner and they could forward you the link/email addresses of a company that offers excursions. Because we booked our trip to Mexico through Air Canada Vacations, our group ended up booking all of our excursions through them as well. They have a rep at the resort, we booked once we got there, and it was actually cheaper for us that way. Maybe see if you can contact a rep with your travel provider if you're looking for an excursion.
Also, the spa offers services for reasonable prices. You could book services through them ahead of time which is what I did via email to ensure all our appointments were booked before getting to the resort. FYI: If you pre-book you appointments at the spa, I would make sure to confirm them once you get there to avoid any confusion. If you have the ultimate package, you could even use the services included for someone else. I know one of the past brides did this.
