    to the forum! Try resorts in Playa del Carmen, they are close to 5th Avenue which has the shopping and night life and it has beautiful beaches! You could look at resorts such as the Gran Porto Real. Good Luck with your planning!

      Welcome to the forum. What you should do is make a list of your must haves and narrow down your search with that. ErinB has a really great thread on here about picking a resort you should do a search for it and check it out. Goodluck with your planning!

        Felicidades and welcome to the forum!! I'm so happy you're looking at Mexico - Puerto Vallarta is beautiful too . You also might try Sayulita - pretty beach, lots of palm trees, quiet, charming town .

          Thanks guys! I've been to the Mayan and absolutely loved it. The only thing I didn't like about it is that it's too far of a drive from the airport. I'd like to be somewhere 30 minutes away tops, so I think I'll be looking at either Cancun or PV. I was checking out Dreams Cancun and it seems to be a little over my families budget (the best air/hotel deal I can find is $1700 for one week). I'd like to find something in the $1000 range. The search continues!

          I appreciate all your advice!

            Have you considered Cuba? My friend got married there in March and it was really nice, we had a great time and Cuba is a really neat place. She also had a 6 month old baby with her and they didnt have any troubles with her at all.

              Prior to our trip being cancelled due to the swine flu, we were staying at the Great Parnassus, which looked fantastic for kids b/c of the pirate ship & for party lovers b/c of all the bar choices. You also have all the nighlife on the strip just a few minutes away. We choose this resort b/c of it's great prices & we had the wedding planned at the Casa Magna Marriott. I don't know if you would be interested in staying at one place & getting married at another, but I know some other girls on here have done this as well. I think JennyK stayed at the Great Parnassus & married at JW Marriott (which is right next door to the Casa Magna.) Just a thought!!! If you need more info, I can try to help, as I researched things in Cancun for months (only for our trip to be cancelled)

                7 hours are not too bad! We have friends coming from Canada, UK, and Hong Kong (that´s like 30 hrs flight)! Your wedding is gonna be special and your guests will love it!!

                  Hi there! I am also new to this board but have been planning 'n researching for a while. You may want to look into the Palace Resorts in Mexico. I know a girl who stayed at Cancun Palace which is kid and $ friendly and in the center of the fun in Cancun but then got married at Moon Palace. If you stay at one of the Palace resorts you can eat, swim and play (and get married!) at the other resorts. Congrats and happy planning!

                      Hey guys, just wanted to let you know I've decided on Dreams PV!!! I just love the mountains in the background, the sunset every night, and the proximity to PV if people want to go into town (it's also kid-friendly). I just hope I can find a good TA now so my guests can get the best deal!!!
