My Fi wants to see the Mayan temples. Let me know, and CaraW keep me posted on your plans!! This is SO exciting!
Thank you Kam
Our photographer was Kevin Lanthier. He is a friend of ours. And is based out of Van. BC. We flew him down. And payed for his accommodations. Totally worth every penny!!! because we are so thrilled with our pictures... Im not sure if the hotel gives you options? in regards to photographers... I dont think they do. Seeing as they dont allow outside vendors. Unless they are booked at the resort...They might have changed that policy though... Best of luck!
As for a group excursion. Yes! we did do one. It was a catamaran adventure. We booked at the resort. They have a desk set up in the corner of the lobby which is in charge of all excursions... That's were you'll want to book a trip. Chichen Itza are the bigger Mayan ruins, while Coba is smaller, but you can climb up one temple. (DH and I did this excursion, after the wedding) Tulum is the smallest of the mayan civilizations in the area, but it has a gorgeous beach! Breath taking in fact! Dont forget... because your booking as a group, you should never have to pay full price
try and get a group rate. Its BS if you dont get one! If your booking more than 10 ppl you should get a discount
Best of luck! and Happy planning
