Anyone worried about the large sand bags on the beach?

Recommended Posts

yeah these bags have some purpose and they catch your eye at first but they dont cause too much havoc at all. I had a B+G out standing on them (slippery!). I wouldn't worry about them too much. If they really bother you, a good photog can remove them from the photos anyway.


Good luck and congrats!

The only reason the sandbags exist at resorts is because they didn't build correctly. When the resorts clear the trees and mangroves to build right up to the water they, destroy the root structure that holds the beach together and resists erosion. When the roots disappear they need to put the whales in the water to protect the beach. It makes me a little mad. The bags are permanent and not seasonal.


We shoot weddings up and down the coast here. I'll start making mental notes of the sandbag-whale-free resorts so we can compile a list in this thread.

Playa - That would be amazing.

We're not so much worried about them being in pictures as we're getting married in Tulum most likely. But I'd just like to know which resorts have them in the water and even more which resorts suffer from bad beach erosion. We're ulitimately looking for a resort thats All inclusive but not massive and one thats got a nice white sand beach free of erosion and sandbags.. Maybe thats too much to ask but if we're asking people to spend money on vacation and trip we'd like to know what we're getting into. Because obviously all of the resorts show gorgeous beach pictures and don't mention anything about the current state of the beach so its impossible to know.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
