              Welcome! I'm a RIU Cabo bride, my best advice ~ be patient with the RIU.

              In the meantime, let us know if you need any help or have any questions.

                Welcome. I am a Riu Cabo bride. Believe me the communication is a little slow in the beggining however it will all work out. I visited the Club Riu Hotel in Jamaica in December 2005. It had just opened and we had a blast. I love that resort and the beaches are beautiful. The Jerk Hut is great! All the restaurants and grounds are gorgeous. I would post some pics but I cannot figure it out. If I do I will post them.

                Good luck planning and congratulations!

                  Yes this is Shakira from trip advisor and thanks for posting this website there for people like me who have no clue when it comes to wedding planning (especially destination weddings).

                  Thank you guys for welcoming me so openly. I realize that it can be a crazy wait when working with Chandlyn from Riu Ocho Rios. I sent her a email about a week ago questioning her about the Plantation restaurant costs and she still has not replied. It's ok, I am definitely trying to be patient.

                  Yes I have completed my save-the-dates and mailed them out already.

                  Any tips or advice will be helpful, Let me know
