I'm posting from the airport, waiting on my connection, on my way down. Cannot tell you how fast the last two weeks went by, so all the little thing you think you can do at the last minute, well start working on them now! 110 guests, 49 rooms booked and a lot of anxiety on my gut! Ill try to post when I get down there and will
try to take as many pic I can of areas, restaurants and decor. Can't believe its finally here! Good luck with the rest of your planning(swine flu free - cdc just raised the travel warning, things are back on track, thank god!). More to come...

It's like you're bringing us down there with you! I feel so excited for you!
Have a great time, congratulations again!! Wish you the best!!!!!
nkuzik, thanks for the good words! July is actually like half the price of christmas time! So I'm trying to consider all that before making a decision... You sure made me feel less anxious about summer time! And hey, weather is unpredictable! So I try no to worry too much about it.

We did have problems with mosquitoes on our patio area. They are everywhere in the grass outside the rooms. As long as we stayed away from that we were ok. Also, it seems a bit noisy - you can hear doors slamming and people walking by, but by turning your fan on high it filters out most of the noise. The beach was very nice. Here's a big tip - go to the VIP area. They have a private bar and covered beach chairs; it is very private and nice, and no one asks you if you belong there.

There were two weddings while we were there. One was very small and another had 60 guests. The gazebo is on a quiet section of the beach and we saw them raking the seaweed from the sand to make it nice. Both weddings had the gazebo decorated with white. The large wedding had a beautiful reception with a dance and fire dancers. They had huge round balloon-type lights that were really pretty.

Thanks so much for the tips!
Do you remember where the two wedding parties had their reception? Was there an actual gazebo for the ceremony or was there a chupah type set up for the beach ceremony?

As for Cozumel, I didn't look into it at all b'cos I wanted something closer to Playa.
