      Hi!

      I came to the same conclusions. The islands are more expensive than Mexico except for Jamaica and the Dominican, but I really did not want to be restricted to the resort, which is what I had heard about those two.

      We decided on the Riviera Maya. I have been to a lot of Mexico, including Puerto Vallarta and many non-resort places. When I went to teh Riviera Maya on a cruise a few years ago, I was blown away by the water and how beautiful it was.

      I also like Mexico because there are easy flights to Cancun from Sweden (my fiance is Swedish and we live there) and NYC. Also there are a lot of activities with the jungle, the mangroves, the ruins etc. Seems to have something for everyone.

      We thought we could spend an extra week just the two of us on the islands if we wanted. But my fiance is now interested in trekking around Mexico.

      What do you have on Playa del Carmen?

        Jeannie,

        This is what a friend of mine sent me when I asked how she liked getting married at the Riu in Playa Del Carmen


        "I loved it there, not my hotel though...lol..but it was so tropical and full of beach and palm trees. I stayed at the Royal in Cancun for my honeymoon and loved it, check out the Royal in Playa del Carmen, they treat you like kings and Queens. the one in Cancun was brand new, built after the hurricane. I dont know how the one in Playa looks. My wedding was at the RIU, I would not recommend the ones in playa."

              I recently went to a wedding at The Royal. The rooms and staff were amazing. The only problem we had was they gave us a room with 2 double beds, so make sure to tell your guests to request a king size. I really loved how the town of Playa del Carmen was less than 5 minutes away walking for those who wanted to get out and explore. I would definitely recomend this resort again!
              Happy Planning!
