    Our group rate from Calgary with Air Canada Vacations for May 2009 was $2249 including tax. We're staying at the Moon Palace.

    I'm kicking myself now because I had gotten a quote back in February for $1891 (tax included) but hadn't entirely decided on the date for the wedding and procrastinated a bit and the price had gone up significantly.

    My advice is to book well in advance.

    Good Luck!

      To save money, part of our group flew out of Seattle. That saved about $600-700 per couple. I don't know if I would do it again though, since the drive back home seemed so long and after a day on the plane, the last thing you want to do is drive back 3 hours from Seattle. But if your group consists of students and are really wanting to save money, this will help.

              We were going to go to Dreamts Tulum, for the end of June, early July 2009.
              We got quotes in June this year and they were around 1900$ a person.

              So we decided to go to Cuba instead, our guests are now paying 1220$

                We decided to fly from Minneapolis because we saved over $500 per person over flying from Winnipeg, and for five of us, that amounted to over $2,500 for a 4-star by Playa Del Carmen!! An inconvenience I know, but on a limited budget, $2,500 is ALOT! We also have friends in Minneapolis so can stay there overnight and fly the next morning.

                  very informative thread :) my guests are paying $1574 for 7 nights at the Royal 5* in Playa flying from T.O. we're paying $1200/pp /week ... i guess we get a bit more of a discount since we're staying 1 week longer (having our honeymoon there as well) ... and it's less than a month away.. lol I had to put that in!

                    We are travelling from Ottawa to Cancun (to Dreams Tulum) the first week of May 2009 and are paying $1725/person through Air Canada Vacations. Our guests flying from Vancouver to Cancun are paying approximately $1850. Our east coast guests are also paying a little bit more (maybe $100).

                    Good luck! I would expect to pay between $1600-2200 for a 4-5 star hotel in the Mayan Riviera (unless you're going at off-peak time, say August or September).

                      We expect to pay more..
                      I'm getting to the point where I don't care - I just want to have the wedding where WE WANT to have it...and whoever comes..comes!

                      and thanks everyone for their input..it really helps out! :)
