Hi there -

 

We are planning to get married in Riviera Maya in April or May 2010. Currently, we are still researching resort prices for our guests. Unfortunately, due to the Swine flu, our travel agent has not been able to get ahold of any of the resorts. Apparently they temporarily layed off staff. Supposedly June 1st, they were going to be back. Anyhow, I have not heard anything yet and it is getting frustrating.

 

Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is there anyone who has gotten quotes on various hotels in the area for 2010? Let me know as I am trying to get an idea of what it would cost my guests to make a trip out for my wedding.

 

Thanks,

How frustrating! I've also sent out some inquiries but haven't heard back (but it's only been a few days)...Good luck!

Here's the link to the package price of the weddings at the resort I'm getting married. It's the RIU Palace Riveria Maya in Playa del Carmen. So far guests are paying around 1,100 per person for 4 nights 5 days including airfare, all inclusive resort, and transportation to and from the airport.

That is really good! Are your guests going through a travel agent? Did you reserve a block of rooms? I don't understand why the quotes I just got are so expensive.

I used Wedding Destinations and Planning | Destination Weddings .com I think I paid $40 dollars and they assigned me a "travel specialist" who has been great. However using destinationweddings.com has gotten mixed reviews on this site, a lot girls said their specialist hasn't been helpful.

 

I didn't reserve a block of rooms, but my specialist is an independent travel agent who works with a bunch of tour operators (IE apple vacations, funjet vacations, etc) and she shops for the lowest quote for each specific guest (since a lot of them come from different airports). The guests fill out a quote form (see my website: request a quote) with their info, and she shops the price for them. Also, if they find cheap deals on travelocity or orbitz, she can price match MOST of the time.

 

I also have an "estimated cost" page on my website that shows what she estimated from different airports.

 

I hope this helps :)

This is VERY helpful. I will check all of this info out later. I was actually looking into destinationweddings.com and was thinking about posting a thread to see if anyone has used them. I am using a AAA Travel Agent and I like the fact that he is nearby and with a reputable company. However, it doesn't seem as though he is getting the best prices so I may need to look into other options.
