Pricing for 2010 Weddings in Cancun/Mayan Riviera

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. We are in the process of getting prices for our destination wedding but still haven't picked out a resort. Originally we had planned on Riu Cancun but our travel agent came back with an extremely high price, $2700 Canadian per person for the end of march, beginning of April out of Edmonton. We've been watching prices on all the travel websites and we've never seen them that high, the highest was around $1700 for this year. So we're now looking at different resorts, probably around Playa Del Carmen, like the Gran Porto Real or the Iberostar Tucan. How far in advance should we be booking? Are we getting these high rates because of how far in advance we are trying to book. We do want to give everyone as much notice as possible, though. Thanks

hi! i am leaving toronto canada and having the same problem, so far what i have found is you should have more then one travel agent because for some reason some can get it cheaper then others, and i have heard that higher prices are quoted when the new price books are not out yet. I am trying to give alot of notice too but i am thinking the best prices will come if you wait until about 9 months before hope this helps. My sister just did this last year and found that jamaica was the best place based on price...and the fact that they are english so nothing has to be translated you also do not have to be in the country for as long before getting married. So if you do not have your heart set on mexico i would look into jamaica. good luck!!

Our TA quoted us a ridculous price for 1 week in PDC. She assured us that the price will come down a lot by the time we book though. I looked up the price for this year at the same time as our wedding and also the prices that are already out for december, just to give us an idea, and it's over $1000 pp cheaper than what she quoted us. Don't worry, I'm sure it will come down. We just tell people what the price was this year and tell them to plan around that. Good luck!

From my experience, prices will come down down the road. Since they were just released, resorts will try to book at their current prices for a few months(and there are a lot of people who will book right away). Later on, prices go down quite a bit. Of course there's always a risk not to have your day available because someone else took it.

Also, because of the economy, a number of business had to increase the prices(less people,same money).

Thanks everyone for the responses. It's pretty unnerving because we've been set on one resort and then after hearing the TA quotes, we've essentially decided to change resorts and the time of year.

I am having the same issues with quotes from TA's being extremely high!

I was hoping that my guests would be paying a maximum of $1500-1700 for 1 week.

Maybe that was wishful thinking!

I had to rule out Dreams Tulum out because of the cost, and I am currently waiting for a TA to get back to me with pricing for Barcelo Maya and also a list of more affordable resorts.

Hiya-

I've been really worried about this too. We have booked Dreams PA for Feb 27, 2010 and the cheapest (if can even use that word...) is $1700.My TA/WC assures me it will go down. Yikes!!!! I hope so....

We have been quoted high prices too. We are leaving from Vancouver BC and all of the prices that have come in so far are $1750 + (most were about $2100 and this isn't even at the really high end resorts) this doesn't even include taxes. I am freaking out a bit because I don't want my guests to have to pay a fortune to come to our wedding. Has anyone found any deals from Vancouver yet...I know the flights haven't even been released yet and niether have package prices but any info helps. Thanks!

Hello Everyone!

We too are running into the same concern. Our wedding will be January 2010 in RM. We met with the TA in February and even at that point in time she said that we would have to wait until June or July before we finalized anything- including booking. I have been checking the sites every so often and I still don't see any prices out for the first week in January, so now I"m thinking her time frame will be about right. I'm assuming that the prices will come out and then hopefully come down by late summer.smile72.gif

Happy planning!

Jessica

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
