      Welcome Guilyn! Ann made some great non-resort suggestions. I'm getting married in Cabo at a large resort and I did hire a wedding coordinator. I'm so glad that I did. She seems to be really on top of everything and very detail oriented.

      Good luck! Let me know if I can help.

        welcome to the board. I used this website to check out Mexico DW's. A lot of the hotel info also contain wedding info. You can check out the pricing and what the hotel has to offer. It's great to get an estimate of the wedding

            Hey, I'm in Austin too. Are you doing a reception in Austin or just a one shot destination thing?

            If you want something smaller, less touristy, then I'd say Riveria Maya (Tulum maybe?). My FI and I stayed at the Cabanas Copal in Tulum and loved it. I think the same people own the Azulik hotel as well, and it looked very romantic. We went during high season (xmas), and even though the Cabanas the the 2 other resorts were sold out it didn't seem crowded or crazy.

            I also really love the British Virgin Islands (BVI) because most places are small and laid back.

            Welcome-I am sure you can find a location that is perfect for you-but if you think you might want something closer to home, you can always do what I am doing, something close (to friends and family-so they can all still come) but still a vacation type of place where you can have other events too. Let me know if you need more details

              My aunt and uncle love Belize, and one resort in particular. I don't know the name of it at the moment, but they have stayed there several times. When they returned from their latest stay, my aunt raved about a wedding they ended up sort of being a part of. The resort is definitely "intimate". She thought they were the only ones there that weren't with the wedding. I think she estimated between 50-60 guests. If Belize sparks your interest, send me a PM (private message). I can get more details from my aunt, and possibly some pics. I think this place would be perfect for what you're lookinng for. Intimate...and with potential to be "rented out"!

                  Welcome! Just FYI on the Cabo Surf thing...since it's in San Jose and not actually in Cabo its definitely NOT the spring break semi-naked college girls scene at all. We felt like we were a million miles away from all of that. Check out my pics (link in siggy) if you are interested. Good luck!
