Why is there no website about this?

I'm so frustrated I'm gonna cry! Why does no one ever want to help you?!
We got married in Playa del Carmen last month. We made sure we had all the proper paperwork so everything would be legal when we got down there. We were issued a temporary marriage certificate in Spanish. We should be receiving the authenticated one in 5 months (the one with the apostille.) It will also be in Spanish. The resort's WC told us that we would need to take this marriage certificate to our City Hall to have it translated and authenticated. So I started doing some research about it. I called our City Hall. They have no idea what I'm talking about. They told me to call the city Marriage Bureau, so I do. The Marriage Bureau has no idea what I'm talking about and tell me to call City Hall. So I call City Hall again. I asked them what do immigrants do when they need their documents translated. "We don't do anything like that here. Call the Marriage Bureau." So I call MB AGAIN: nada. Not only does no one do it, they've never heard of it, dealt with it and have no idea where to send me.
Has anyone else dealt with this or know what I should try next? I just want to be legally married!
Someone could be making a fortune if they set up a business to help dest brides navigate the legalities of a DW. I am so confused!!!!!!!!

It seems odd that no past brides have mentioned this as a problem before. Am I missing something?

"Legalization of matrimony in the country of origin. You will have to legalize your marriage license (Apostille). We recommend you to check with your local offices if the legalization can be done by the Mexican Embassy or Consulate in your country or if they require to get it done here in Mexico. Cost for the legalization is not included in the wedding package."

I am feeling like we should just go to City Hall and get remarried. But I'm not sure if that would be illegal or not!

I have the number of the Embassy in Cabo if you need it let me know.
Baurocrats are horrible to deal with. At least in Mexico I KNOW how to get things done $$$$$$.
You should have them translate your marriage certificate in Mexico. There are legal translators that can take care of this BEFORE you do the apostille.
