Destination Scout

New Vendor - Destination Scout

Recommended Posts

It's going well, thanks for asking. I ran my first scouting trip to Tulum with two possible clients. We had a great time. You can read the trip report at http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...11-15-a-48981/

I really enjoyed going, and learning more about the area. The other couples really appreciated finding some locations they hadn't read about before.


In early November, I played a role as an intermediary between a hotel that did not have a website and the bridal party. I helped them make their reservations and transfer all of their money across the border without any drama. This is a huge issue with small vendors and I was glad that I could help.


I am in the process of finalizing plans for a wedding in May. We've made all of our decisions and are in the midst of paying all of our deposits. This is a huge win for the bride, who has just purchased her first home. We are six months away and she is able to enjoy being engaged instead of trying to finish planning her wedding.


Tulum is a great location and I love helping people find what they need in the area, but I'm ready for a new challenge. I'm waiting for someone to send me off into the wild.

I also wanted to add my review.  Malisa helped us take a scouting trip down to Tulum and ran our tooshies off, but in a very good way.  If she put that much effort into a quick 4 day trip I know we'll do well for a whole wedding.  You can read everywhere she had us go here


And you can just tell that she was trying to give us a sample of EVERYTHING without dictating what we should or should not like.  This is great, now if I can just save up enough money for fire spinners :)

Thanks for the kudos Umami!  I'm excited that you got so much accomplished in your 3 days.  You managed to choose your hairdresser, make-up artist, venue and wedding officiant.  We're going to have a great time coodinating your wedding.

    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
