Destination Location with a chapel, beach, fun, and history? - HELP!

Recommended Posts

It appears, (and it makes sense), that most (if not all that I've found) Mexican churches are Catholic...any other non-denominational church/resort locations? Mexico? Caribbean?

Hi Caroline,

 

I just attended the DW of a good friend of mine. It was in Los Cabos, Mexico at the Dreams Reort (mentioned in an earlier reply). It was GORGEOUS and luxurious and had great service and not very expensive from a guest perspective (we paid $185/person/night for all-inclusive). It really was a top notch resort.

 

There are just 2 issues that I think you should take into consideration:

1. The ocean in that area is not swimmable. The tides are literally deadly. For a beach/ocean person, like me, that would be a major factor to condier.

2. The sand is brutally harsh. It's very course and literally painful to your feet. The rehearsal dinner was on the sand and EVERYONE was complaining about their feet hurting. I can get cranky when I am uncomfortable, so the sand situation detered me from having as good a time as I could have.

 

I'm not sure if this is true for all of Cabo, becuase we didn't leave the resort. But that's my 2 cents! Good luck in your planning!

Welcome and congrats. You've come to the right place, the girls (and occassionally boys) on here will no doubt be able to point you in the right direction.

 

Not sure if its the kind of thing you're looking for but Dreams Tulum in the Riviera maya has a cute, spanish style chapel on-site in the resort. Its non-denom (we are having our civil ceremony there.) You would arrange your minister of choice or judge with the wedding co-ordinator. Tons of info in the specific Dreams Tulum thread. Only prob may be your guest numbers, the chapel is very intimate and only seats 20!

 

Good Luck with the decision.

Hi-Congrats! We had our honeymoon at the Valentin in Playa Del Carmen. They had a GORGEOUS chapel!!!! I have pictures of it if you want to message me on the side and I can give you my email address! The only downfall of the resort is that it really wasn't that fun and isn't close to the town(which I love). But if you have a good group down there you will be fine! :) I hope this helps!

Mhoudek- Please post the pics so that everyone can see the chapel at Valentine !

 

It is a beautiful chapel but not traditional "church" chapel by any means. It's surrounded by a moat and is fairly open air.There are columns along the sides and back that are fairly close togther but you can still see out and others in. The entire structure is whlte. It's located in the center of the resort in a garden like setting.

    • 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
