    You are totally going to enjoy it! The crew was just hilarious! They had a dance routine and everything! The food was good and they tend to your every need! especially with the drinks!! I don't wish what we went through with the flight on my worst enemy! It was just all bad! I hope you don't go through our flight plan. You should be o.k. because the swine flu mumbo jumbo is dying down.

    I am sure I will come up with more questions later but for now... THANK YOU!!!
    Please feel free to ask me anything when you do! I may just have the answer for it! Remember, I did have my spiral notebook full of questions!
    Yesica was so sweet. She must have thought I was Nucking Futs!! Thinking to herself for me to LOL!

        I'm so jealous! You are going to have a really good time! I was so sad to leave! But, January is not too far away. Our wedding is just around the corner.

        I do not have an outside WC. I thought about it, ONLY because I wasn't sure how i was going to plan our wedding in another country. But the ladies on this forum have helped me a whole lot. Not to mention, you are going to do a site visit. The on-site WC for most resorts are pretty much all you need, they are good at what they do! Because of this forum, Our wedding was already planned the first 2 months of planning!

        My advice: Write down all of your questions prior to you going to your visit. I keep a spiral notebook with me at all times to jot down questions that would come along the way. If i didn't have my notebook i'd write my questions on receipts, napkins, and even on my hand! It sounds crazy, but it'll help you along the way. No matter how small the questions are, small questions add up. And it's nice to get the answers in person, versus playing e-mail tag all the time! Have fun on your visit, and can't wait to see your review! Which resort are you going to have your wedding at?

          LOL!!! Well it's funny you mention the "spiral notebook"...because I have something similar to it with a gazillion tabs separating the subjects..flowers, colors, OOT bags..etc. So no worries....when I read "spiral notebook" I knew EXACTLLY what you meant :o)

          Well I hired and outside WC before I came accross this forum (which is a ton of help). We will be looking at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach, Dreams, Casa Dorada and the Hilton....and maker our decision before we head back home :o)

          Thanks for the info Melette!!! Have a great day!

            Hola Melita,

            What a great review and thank you!

            I can see that you had a great time in Cabo, it was just a teaser of what your big day will be! It was great meeting you two. Best of luck.

              Melita - GREAT REVIEW!!! Question for you....How did you schedule your food tasting? I am going down for a site visit May 29th and have asked Yarai several times about doing a tasting and have gotten no response.

              Thanks

                Dee- take lots of pics of the food, esp the apps if you do a tasting. It really helps me pick my menu when I get to see the food presentation also :)

                  Hi Deanna! I emailed Yesica and gave her the date's we would be there and that we wanted to do our resort visit. She picked a day that was best for her schedule. Then she emailed me the food options, and had to give her our 2 choices per each course. This is where Dino came to my rescue! I totally forgot to send her my course choices! I emailed her 5 days prior, with no response from her. So, i emailed Dino to ask him to get in contact with her, and she confirmed the day we left. From what Yesica has told me, may is their busy wedding month. from thursday to saturday they had 4 weddings! By next week, if she hasn't already responded, i would try and email her again. good luck!

                    The review is soo helpful!!!! Thanks a bunch.

                    I was wondering if you were able to negoiate a lower price with Sunrider. I think there online price is $45pp. I didn't know if they offered you a group rate?

                      OMG! SO DO I! This gives me an idea to start a thread on "show us your wedding planner! It'll be HILAR to see what the other girls are towing around! Take tons of pics! Can't wait to see them!

                      Hi Jess. You know, It never crossed our mind to try and negotiate that! It was just the 2 of us. I wonder if the other girls on the forum has tried to negotiate a group rate?
