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

Recommended Posts

We've been to our resort twice already and the locals have been fantastic! We have never had a problem at all and we've gone into town several times and travelled to Cozumel via ferry and rented a car.

Does anyone have positive feedback from their trip to Puerto Vallarta?  Did you feel you or your guests weren't able to fully enjoy themselves? Or once you got there did you 'forget' about the travel warnings?  Looking for some feedback from the last few months.

When we announced our wedding will be in the Mayan Riveria, some of our friends raised safety concerns. I have a feeling that some of our friends may not come due to the negative assumptions of Mexico.

 

Have any of you experienced the same reactions from your family and friends when you told them your wedding will be held in Mexico?

It's unfortunate how many people are misinformed when it come to safety in Mexico, especially the tourist areas were most of us have our weddings.  I think some people just look fopr an excuse not to go and the violence in Mexico is an easy cop out.

 

Fortunately I didn't have this problem with any of my guests.  My Fi and I have been to Mexico twice in the past 4 years and our friends and family trust our judgment and know that we wouldn't put them in harms way. Those who may have been skeptics did some research and have relieved their own concerns.  I think the best thing that you can do is try to educate your guests and direct them to current safety advisories for the country. 

 

Best of Luck.

Thank you for sharing!! A few family members have "joked" about not going because it's not safe! I will definitely pass this along so they can read!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
