They are taking your temperature when you arrive and leave the Cancun airport to help stop the spread of the swine flu. As for the resorts, they are at about 20% capacity across the Riviera Maya and although some have closed due to nearly no one there, others are doing whatever they can to make the guests they do have happy. The Royal in Playa offered 50% off of all spa treatments and bottles of wine. All of the attractions are now open. We talked to our driver on the way to our resort on Wed 5/6 and he was so frustrated with how this is effecting Mexico. He said that the climate in Mexico City is totally different that the beach areas.
Good luck to all of you leaving for Mexico for what I hope is a beautiful wedding in the coming weeks and months! Hopefully your travel is not still banned. But I will say that if you are considering canceling due to the swine flu...DON'T. We couldn't have asked for a better, more beautiful wedding!
I am going to post my overall review of the wedding on the Royal Playa del Carmen forum. Feel free to ask any questions you may have!
Michelle your words are very comforting! Thanks for your insight from your recent trip. I feel so bad for the resorts and those that work for them, it is only making it harder business wise for mexico.

So now she has to rebook on Frontier...which is fine and will work, but I just don't have words to describe the disgust I have for the media. It is causing so much fear in everyone! People are canceling their trips, then the flights get canceled because they dont meet occupancy! Luckily Frontier has a pretty good track record. As long as they have 10 people on board they will fly. We have 15 booked 1 day, and 6 another, so as long as 4 randoms are on board we will be good!
I am so sorry to everyone that has been affected!!! it is just terrible!!! Even though the flu is dying down...the damage is done to the travel industry and people are scared. This is the problem we will be facing in the upcoming months. Come on people, don't let fear get the best of you! Life is too short!

All you ladies that are going ahead with your plans to Mexico, have a magarita for me b/c I am sad I will not see Mexico again this year (maybe I can talk FI into going this winter Best of luck to you ladies!!!
My first choice was Maui! It is beautiful! You will have an amazing time! Were your guests all able to transfer to make it?
Good luck to you sweetie!

Thanks for the well wishes, we need it (we thought all these negative things with Mexico was an omen that we should't get married, so let's hope everything from here on out goes without a hitch
***keeping fingers crossed***
