Issues/Questions/Concerns/Safety Traveling to Mexico? POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

I'm getting married in Playa del Carmen in October. Recently my fiance and I have been getting worried about the violence towards American's that is going on in Mexico. I have been assured that it is mainly on the border but I wanted everyone's thoughts/opinions, especially if you are flying into Cancun and getting married around the Riviera Maya anytime this year. Are you concerned? Have you heard from the resort/wedding coordinator? I do not want to put any of our guests in harms way and this is really worrying me!

 

Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

Some of my guests are apprehensive about their layover in Mexico City. The airport and surrounding areas are safe I believe? Any new information developed?

Hi Nikki,
I just returned from a trip to the Riviera Maya and can honestly tell you that we had no problems. We took a day trip to Playa del Carmen on a Collectivo and did not once feel uneasy about being there. I can understand your apprehension but the officals in Mexico do a pretty good job keeping their big resort towns safe. Hope this eases your mind a little.

I'm glad to hear you had a good trip. I have not heard anything about Riviera Maya or Puerto Vallarta (where we're doing our wedding) being unsafe. My fiance and I feel confident and comfortable going forward with the wedding, but convincing our guests....well our parents, has been a big headache. They just hear the State advisory against travel to Mexico and all these horrendous news stories. It's awful.

We are getting married in Puerto Vallarta also.  I have not heard anything either, but we do keep an eye out.  I have been to Puerto Vallarta twice and absolutely love it.  I have no apprehension, my fi's parents, who will not be traveling with us cannot believe that we are having all of these people go to Mexico.  They hear the news stories, but do not understand that the resort areas are pretty safe.  That is not the reason they are not going but, I am worried they may end up discouraging some of our guests.

Hi Everyone.

 

I didn't know where else to put this post, so hope that a lot of Bride's get to see it here.

 

 

As of September 14th 2010 the only currency accepted in Mexico will be the Mexican peso. No more American or Canadian dollars!! Please make sure you convert money before you go :)

I heard that this new law only affects transactions over $100 USD, and also that tipping was still fine in USD - is that right?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
