Hi all,


I'm getting married in the Riviera Maya (prob Azul Sensatori) and was looking for some recommendations on golf courses for the guys. Has anyone done the research on local area courses, prices, etc? If so, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it.


Thanks so much!

I'm hoping to get married there next year as well. I am leaning towards Fairmont Mayakoba and one of the reasons is because of the golf course there. It's georgous. The only thing is, I'm pretty sure that it's more expensive for people who aren't guests at the hotel.

My DH and his buds went to Puerto Aventuras Golf Course. It's a 9 hole course you have to play twice to get in the 18 holes. It was a total of $86 pp and you can play all day for that price. My DH wanted to play another course but they are all sooo much more expensive and he didn't want to ask his buds to pay another $170 on top of the vacation cost.


FYI, my brother stayed at the Fairmont over the summer and played the course. He said it was amazing. If you can afford it...go for it!

Thanks for the replies! The Mayakoba is georgeous, just so expensive ($230 plus $55 for rental clubs). Slightly more affordable are the Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club and the Playacar Golf Club (closer to $190 and including drinks and food on and off the course, plus $35 for clubs). My fiance was thinking of making this his gift to the guys in the wedding party (and letting others decide if they want to play), but we're not sure if this is an okay gift. Thoughts?

Here are a few of the courses that we found when researching and the little write up that we are putting with them in our welcome booklets. Do not quote me on the prices as I am not 100% sure on them.


Iberostar Paraiso Golf Club, 18 hole, par 72

The Iberostar Paraiso Golf Club was designed by one of the Caribbean's most prolific golf course designers, P.B. Dye. It was designated “Best of the Best†by Robb Report in 2006. It is one of the newest courses in the Riviera Maya, opening to the public in 2005.

GREEN FEE (including cart, food, and beverages) 190.00 USD


The Golf Club at Moon Palace, 18 hole, par 72

Jack Nicklaus has put his signature on the Cancun-Riviera Maya golf landscape with The Club at Moon Palace.

GREEN FEE (including cart, food and beverages) 260.00 USD

TWILIGHT (including cart, food and beverages) 165.00 USD


Puerto Aventuras Golf Course, 9 hole, par 36

The PA Golf course is an exciting and challenging course. This beautiful 36 par jungle golf course was designed in 1991 by Thomas Leman and is still one of the best kept secrets in the area. The fairways and greens are covered by a smooth carpet of Bermuda grass and surrounded by Palm trees, bugambilias, tropical ficus and lush foliage.

Green fee (18 holes) $80

Equipment rentals $20


Hope this helps!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
