    Hello -

    We are getting married in March in Tulum and was hoping to get some advice.

    1) We are using a buotique hotel and I wanted to make sure I am not getting ripped off for food and room discounts. Does 15% sound about right?

    2) Are you using a hair/make up artist in Tulum?

    3) Are you arranging for and paying for transportation if it's NOT included in price since we are not using an all inclusive resort?

    If there is anyone out there getting married in Tulum this March I would love to hear from you! Especially if you've had experience with Aki'in Beach Club or Ocho!

      Hi Sperry -
      I work in Tulum a lot. A 15% discount on room an food is a pretty good deal. Sometimes you can get a 20% discount on room alone, but if you are getting the discount on food I think it evens out.

      I'm doing hair trials at two hairstylists in town in mid-November. I'll be posting pictures an reviews when I am finished.

      I usually split ground transporation between guests using the service. I like to book a few shuttles, rental cars, and bicycles.

        Do you have any pics of some of our hair styles and could I also get the prices? I would need for the Friday night rehearsal dinner and wedding.

          I have a few photos, but they are rather old. I'll make sure to post new photos an prices.

            Hi! I'm getting married in Tulum in February 2010 at Ana y Jose. Our weddings are pretty close to each other's!

            1 - We were not offered any discounts, so 15% sounds really good to me!
            2 - I am heading to Tulum this weekend for a site visit and hair trial. I can send you a pic after. I'm not getting my makeup done though.
            3 - We are helping to coordinate transportation in shuttles to/from the airport, but we are not paying for it. Our travel agent is helping to coordinate. We are going to have transportation that goes up and down the beach road for our events, since we have guests at a few different hotels. That we will pay for.

            Good luck with your planning!
