      Yup, we got married on the beach. it's actually located right behind the 24 hour snack bar and the activity pool. In fact, our guests all met at the 24 hour bar before heading down. It's the hammock location and although it's on the beach, it's by the rocks. so instead of hearing speedo clad tourists in the background, you hear waves crashing on the beach. It's very nice!

      has anyone got married legally after their DW? my guy is wondering what our parents will think if they know our ceremony isn't legal if we asked them to come all that way.
      Now, we did NOT have to do anything with our birth certificates. We simply had our passports and tourists visas and that's all we needed. It might be different coming from Canada, but I'm not sure. But honestly, it was SO easy to get legally married down there.

      Good luck planning and don't be afraid to send me private messages if you have any questions.

        oh i know the area you are talking about now. if you are on the beach by the swing bar and you keep walking down farther to the right. it is a nice location. i guess we were by there but no ceremony was taking place so i didn't realize it was the same area.

        yeah when we decide on a date officially and i contact the resort i will find out more about the legal ceremony. i have read some canadians had to get their birth certificates in the long form, whatever that means and it translated from english to spanish. i suppose i have plenty of time to do that if it's necessary. it would be nice to do it legally.

        thanks for the info and getting back to me. excuse my slow response.
