      Thank you for the informative review.

      I too am having a Mayan ceremony; however we are staying at Catalonia Royal Tulum, and the ceremony will take place at EcoTulum - Copal. We have a great WC, but I now have concerns.

      We chose Copal, becuase of the Shaman Daniel Poo Pech, and we learned within the last couple of weeks that he is no longer performing ceremony's there due to a car accident. Daniel is well respected and known Internationally for his healing work, and to sum it up he has a beautiful soul where we desired to have him perform our ceremony.

      Our WC has provided us with (2)n Shamans that would possibly perform our ceremony and one of the couples is the same that married you and your husband. Also, our wedding photographer is Cecilia Dumas. We wanted Del Sol, but we couldn't afford the cost. So I have a couple of questions for you:

      1.) Did you and your husband have vows or speak to each other during the ceremony?
      2.) Would you recommend meeting the Shaman prior (it's what we want to do) before the ceremony?
      3.) How long did the ceremony last?
      4.) I purchased a Maggie Sottero dress (Philippa), and was going to change to a more casual, but I'm going with the dress and will wear rustic chunky turqoise (sp?)...do you think that's too much?
      5.) Did you receive a document from the shaman or did you have one made for your ceremony?
      6.) Do you have photos I can review of Cecilia's work?

      Sorry for all of the questions, but we are on the verge of our wedding and I'm getting anxious and overwhelmed.

        Thanks for a great review. The photos really show the spirit of the ceremony. I only recently found out that they offer other ceremonies (like the Mayan) besides the civil legal ceremony. They really don't give you a lot of information about it. Did you know who your Shaman was going to be beforehand? I'd love to any answers to HotTamale's questions.

        HotTamale - speaking of which, did you go ahead with your Mayan ceremony? How did it work out?
