Pricing for 2010 Weddings in Cancun/Mayan Riviera

Recommended Posts

Our travel agent gave us the same spiel. Wait until August or September when the new vacation books come out and proper pricing is in effect. What someone should do is start a thread for all the destination weddings this year and then basically put the time of year and the prices their guests are paying. Hopefully we can use that as a rough estimate for 2010 weddings.

I'm getting anxious and I would like to know a close estimate because that will help me decide on a resort for sure. I think the '09 price thread would be a great idea

My TA got me pricing for Dreams Tulum, Azul, and one more back in Feb. We are paying 2400 for 10 day stay in a Dreams Junior Suite.. Hope that helps.. But I think the prices mayhave increased

Who is your travel agent (I am hunting for a good one right now) and what month are you planning to get married?

I am in the same boat as everyone here. The pricing for my resorts in 2009 were $1300-$1500 (Gran Porto Real) and $1800-$2000 (Royal Playa Del Carmen). When the 2010 pricing came out this month I found the prices to be $500-$700 more than 2009.

I'd like to wait until August but my wedding is in January so I would like to get a head start on booking.

I am getting married in January 2010. I am anxious to book, but the prices are outrageous. My TA said just to sit back and relax prices will come down and 2010 specials will come out. I am getting married at Dreams Cancun and went last year for 5 days and it was around 850. I booked this hotel cause the price was right. I also think because what is going on in Mexico the prices should drestically reduce. I check everyday. The prices have to come down...

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
Remember- Easter is April 4 next year. Spring break will be within those weeks before and after, so EVERYthing will be outrageously inflated. An agent last year suggested that we book at least 2 weeks past Easter, preferably more, and I think that really helps. I wanted to do it before it got SERIOUSLY hot, but outside of the tourist high season during the winter months.

She also said that to estimate pricing, just use current year booking price, and add 10% to get a ball park idea.

I checked the travel websites today too (sunwing, sunquest ect)....nothing has shifted. I looked at Westjet vacations and they don't have 2010 dates out yet. Fingers crossed the $$ will go down....

Our prices are in!! I am finally able to view prices from AppleVacations for the week of January 5-12. I contacted our TA and she priced us an awesome price, actually $400 cheaper than the last time we checked. She also mentioned that if we buy insurance we will get money back if the prices go down which is a major incentive for us.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
