    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://bestdestinati....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.
