      Choosing a resort is the most stressful part of this whole thing! As soon as it's over, it's all easy decisions from here :) That's what i can say now anyway!

      Tulum is a little nicer, probably the more expensive one. It's a member of the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, a collection of the world's finest independently owned luxury hotels. A big deal in the industry. Another plus is you'd be close to the town of Tulum and the ruins. We had a lot of guests go there for our wedding last winter. Tulum will be more upscale - chill towels, fruit, drinks upon arrival, etc. PA will be more active - fun games around the pool - kind of more of my style than a stuffy luxury place, but it all depends on what she's looking for and her personality. PA would probably be better for kids since it's more active (if there are kids going). Hope those little facts helped!

            I am at the exact point your niece was! I am looking at Ixtapa too. Did you find any other places during your search that were contenders in that area?

              We looked at quite a few different places in Zihuatanejo and then Ixtapa. Another place we looked into on the west coast was Huatulco. The places she really liked were extremely expensive (Tides), plus the airfare for the folks coming from the east coast U.S. were really much more expensive than the east coast Mexico. She always wanted to have a Caribbean wedding, so when I found the site for Dreams, it seemed like a perfect match, and the pricing was good too. Good luck, whichever area you choose.

                -The Tides - your niece has very good taste! That place is very expensive but one of the most beautiful I have found anywhere. I wish I could afford it too. Maybe 1 night of the honeymoon if I get lucky.

                Thanks for the information though. Good luck with the planning!

                      Hi Rory,
                      Welcome to the forum!
                      i think one of the main thing in a destination wedding is to stand in front of the ocean barefoot during the ceremony!
                      I got married in Tulum last year, and we really wnated a beach ceremony.
                      Hope this helps!
                      Good luck with your planning!
