    I am a newbie who is very excited about being a part of this forum. I am in need of help and after reading some postings, I definitely know that I have come to the right place.

    I recently became engaged on Valentine's Day and looking to getting married in June of 2008 in Mexico. My biggest issue is finding an AI resort that kids and adults would enjoy. I was looking at the Occidental Grand Xcaret, but I read mixed reviews on Tripadvisor that was quite discouraging.

    Please if anyone know of a place that would be affordable (< 600 pp for 4days/3nights) please assist me. I am trying to keep the entire vacation around 1000 pp including airfare.

    Thanks so much for all of your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Welcome!!! Questions: Are you looking in one particular area in Mexico? Do you want a beach wedding? Do you want an AI for sure or are you flexible on that?

        I am definitely wanting an outdoor ceremony either beachfront or just a beautiful tropical gazebo area. I was looking at Cancun because of the nightlife but I am open to any area as long as my wedding is a dream come true.

            Welcome! You definitely came to the right place! In the 2 weeks that I have been on this forum, I have gotten TONS of wonderful advice and everyone has been super helpful. I am actually in the process of planning my wedding at the Xcaret. I know a bunch of people that went there and loved it so I decided to trust them and go with it (although I am hoping to do a site visit in the end of august). If you are having a large group, I just got the group rates for a bunch of the Occidental hotels today!

                  I was the exact same way!! I decided on the Occidental Grand Xcaret but changed because of the reviews.. I'm now doing it at the Iberostar Tucan. Great beach and reviews. One of the girls is down there now from the forum checking it out.
                  Good luck
