    Hey girls! Well we thought we had it all figured out... DT has awesome prices for us right now, but now that we've been researching we have a little bit of a problem (maybe not?).

    For those of you who have visited, is it really isolated? I mean are there things to do without traveling an hour or two away? I'm just worried my guests will be bored or that the ride from the airport will be too cumbersome! Thanks in advance!

      We didn't find it isolated. Playa del carmen was only about a 40min drive from Dreams and most of the excurtions were anywhere from 10 min to 45 min away. We actually loved that there wasn't a resort on either side of Dreams, made it much more intimate.

        That is a great advantage, not as loud and cramped probably. Congrats on just getting married... WOW! How exciting! I may be PMing you for some advice once I finally get this ball rolling....

          I've been to DT, and we loved it. It is kinda off on its own, but it was nice and private which we enjoyed. In my opinion, we didn't feel the need to leave the resort for anything, so it doesn't really matter how far away anything is.

            We just visited, and it's not too isolated. It's isolated enough, but if you want to go to playa, it's about a 40 min drive. And it's beautiful!

              Could anyone comment on the beach at DT for me? I've heard it is very rough? Thanks.

                I have pics somewhere, I will try and find them for you. But we did not find the beach to be very rough? They had one of the best beaches we had seen(with Barcelo having the best one).

                    Congrats! There is a lot to do in the Tulum/Playa area. When we went with our guests we had too much to do. Most guests got to Tulum and decided that all they wanted to do was sit on the beach
                    Hidden Worlds - zipline, snorkel in cenotes, skycycle
                    several cenotes that you can snorkel in for an afternoon
                    snorkel in Akumal/Soliman Bay
                    kayak or hike in Si'an Kaan
                    scuba dive
                    salsa lessons and dancing at La Zebra on Sunday nights
                    catamaran rides out of Akumal
                    tour Tulum ruins
