It's a 15 min cab ride to Playa del Carmen and about 45 mins to Cancun. I'd recommend going to Playa Del Carmen 5th ave one day, its a long touristy stretch with souvenir shops, restaurants, and pubs and is alongside a beach as well. Then one night you should also go to the bar strip (not sure which ave it is but the cabby will know) and check out some of their bars. There's a Congo Bongo in Playa as well as Cancun. Some of us went to the Playa one and others to the Cancun Congo Bongo so hard to say which is better, I imagine Cancun's will be busier. Even though its 45 mins awya I'd still recommend going to Cancun for a day and/or night. There's an outlet mall, several bars, and restaurants. Many excursions you can go on as well, they sell packages behind the lobby close to where you book your a la carte restaurants.

However, hopefully once we get down there it will be a little different. I am still trying to get a straight answer as to what documentation I require and if anything needs to be notarized by the mexican consulate of Calgary prior to us leaving. I have ordered my AHR invitations and will be sending those out soon.
Any ideas for group activities to do with your crew while you are down there? Has anyone looked into booking a catamaran ride? Mara said she would section off the buffet for my group for a rehearsal dinner or a thankyou dinner. I just had to let her know.
What other special events do you brides have planned?
I love this blog!!!
