One week or two??

Recommended Posts

About 5 years ago I went to Cuba for a week(first time) and loved it so much I asked local Sunwing rep to extend my trip. I paid about $100 to Sunwing to get my flight changed from Tuesday to Sunday(5 days) and then $400 to the hotel.

We stayed at our resort for two weeks as well! I was in Mexico 3 years prior to our wedding for another wedding and we only stayed for one week that time and it definitely was not enough time to see and do everything we wanted. For our wedding, we thought two weeks would be a better choice...and it was! It was long enough that we were ready to go when it was over and short enough that we weren't sick of anything yet. :)

2 weeks for sure! I talked FI into doing 13 days (good negotiationg skills) because you're basically wasting 2 days traveling (there and back) and so much family and friend time. You definitely don't want to regret not staying longer, and I can almost guarantee you will not be ready after 7 days!!

We'll spend our wedding week at the resort in the Mayan Riviera and an extra week just being beach bums--I want to stay in one of the little Tulum hotels, go to Cozumel, and stay in Playa Del Carmen as well... I figure one week at a resort is enough and the other week to explore and see everything :)

We are doing a package through Air Transat, and it will cost $150 per person to extend the flight one week (obviously no accomodations included).

 

Cuba is beautiful, might be a great opportunity to get out of the resort after the first week!

Don't even give it a second thought... 2 weeks... crash and burn with your honey once everyone else has gone home. Take sometime to let go of the stress and allow yourself time to dream a new dream... the one with your honey without the wedding plans and stress... Plan the new chapter of your life.... far too many of us don't allow our selves the gift of destressing..... a few days to say babe its all over, we did and look out world here we come two of us together..... 2 weeks for sure

Two weeks! DH and I actually went a week BEFORE everyone else came down for the wedding, and it was PERFECT. We travelled through the country, planned the wedding, spent some amazing quality time together... it was a fantastic way to get ready for the week. :)

We are staying 1 week at the Iberostar Varadero and then 1 more week just travelling around Cuba on our own. I think it will be a good mix, and we'll probably be sick of the all-inclusive lifestyle after a week.

    • 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.
