Picking a date is driving me NUTS-O!

Recommended Posts

I had the same exact problem because FI's parents asked that the wedding be on a 3 day weekend to make it easier for people, so we went with Memorial Day weekend (of 0cool.gif. It is right before hurricane season in Mexico, and the rates are WAY lower... we ended up getting the Occidental Xcaret for 125 per person per day. Hope this helps!

Good to know, thanks for the feedback!

The thought of Hurricane Season worries me a bit, so I looked it up and it says beginning of June to end of November is Hurricane Season. So that still leaves Memorial Day in first position. But, I wonder how Nov.'08 rates will compare to May of '09. The rates go up every year, but it sounds like generally May rates are cheaper than Nov., so maybe they will just balance out and end up being about the same?

Random: Can you imagine how many posts I will accumulate on here by May of '09?? rofl.gif

How far in advance do more people make their wedding reservation? Is that what you call it...a reservation? I just want to make sure I'm on track. The wedding will be a year from now. I picked out my date, I just want to make sure it will be available at the hotel.

 

What is the weather like in the cancun area in June? I thought the highs were in the high 80s. Maybe I just like it hot.

Hi!

You can find a good Cancun weather chart w/rainy days and avg. high/low temps here: Cancun Palace Resorts - Weather Information

I believe the rates are higher roughly October-April or something like that.

Haha, yeah. The only difference is it is a lot more muggy there!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
