    Hi Kerri

    Welcome to the forum. I've spent quite a bit of time in Florida and Playa de Carmen. That's a tough choice. Hopefully this forum will be a great source of information. Happy planning!

        Hey krs182! We are going through a travel agent and most of my guests are spending about $1200 per person for around a one week stay. For thursday to sunday they are spending around $850 per person. I hope that helps you. Just recently the prices went down, so the prices listed above are the new rates. If you don't want to go through a travel agent Funjet Vacations - Vacation Packages to Las Vegas Mexico Hawaii the Caribbean Europe Family Travel Destination Package Air Hotel Online Booking has great rates and there are also great TA's on this forum.

        We have a RIU Palace Riviera Maya thread going. Feel free to join in or read the posts because there is tons of info on the hotel and weddings on there: http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t25118

            OK great, thanks for the information!
            DId you go through a travel agent? Do you find that it helped? I heard I maybe should go through a travel agent for price help and because they can help make sure you get what you pay for, so Ive been considering, curious your thoughts on this.

            Also, any thoughts from your guests on the pricing? I love the places in Playa del Carmen so much, but I am afraid people will think 200+ per person per night is too much. I would love to find a place that is more like 100 or 150 per person, so a couple would only have to pay 200-300 per rooom. However, I havent seen anything close to that rate. Any advice? Any thoughts from your guests?

            I will go check out the string on Riu PM Brides too, thanks for your help!

              No problem! Yes, I would definitely recommend going through a TA. They work for your best interest and can find prices and let you know of things that you otherwise wouldn't be aware of. It is worth it for sure.

              My guests are okay with the price. Lots of them have been to RIU's before so they know it will be worth the price. If you want something a little cheaper maybe you can check out the RIU palace mexico-it is right next door from the RIU palace riviera maya and since it is a little older it is probably cheaper and it also looks very nice. Good luck! Feel free to PM me if you need anything else

                I am planning a wedding this fall near Playa del Carmen at the advice of some friends who LOVED it there. I have been to Cancun a few times, though...which is only about 45 mins away. Just in case you choose this area, make sure you check out the local cave-bar called El Lux in Playa del carmen. My best friend has shown me pictures, and it looks like the craziest place to grab a drink or meal..EVER. I cant wait to actually BE THERE! All of the historical Mayan sites are cool, too ( Chichinitza, Tulum, etc) and there are within like 30 mins, just make sure you price the trips with people who have been, I think we got riipped of when we visited through our resort. There are pics of it posted on Tripadvisor as well. Good luck!
