I am having such a difficult time trying to decide between Punta Cana and Mexico (Cancun or Cabos). I have not visited either location, so I am strictly going by opinions of others. This process is getting me frustrated because both areas look beautiful.
I am looking for an AI resort that is ideal for kids, elderly, as well as young adults because I have such a variety of age groups attending. I also want a resort that is within walking distance of the ocean, although a pool is great, I want to experience the ocean.
If anyone can give me any advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

There is dreams in Cabo (AI) which I am pretty sure accommodates all age groups. However the beach is within walking distance...it's right on the beach but you can't swim in the ocean there because of the undertoe...but the pools are wonderful.
RUI is an AI and it's closer to downtown cabo and I honestly do not know if this is a swimming beach or not...however most of the large resorts in Cabo are right on the beach so you can at least sunbath in the sand....
I know that probably didn't really help but I would say any beachy area is going to be beautiful...what helped to make our decision between cancan, puerta vallarta and cabo is that cabo is actually the closest from the west coast and all of our guest will be flying from either california, arizona or washington state so I took that into consideration as far the flight time and cost of flights ect....so if you are indifferent on the locations I would look into what is then most convenient travel wise for you and your guests??

Not to say that DR is not beautiful because everytime I see a picture of the ocean there I want to get there NOW! It's so stunning!
What are your most important things in a location?

I photographed Lenita's wedding at Moon Palace in Cancun, and I think it would be a good choice considering your needs. There were children there, the beach is right there, lots of big pools, it is AI, etc.
If you would like to see some pictures let me know and I can pull up the link for her slideshow.

Cancun/Riv Maya seems to have more night life than PC and you should take a look at fees. I believe the Dominican govt has recently increased fees for judge for non residents marrying there. Went from a really small number to $500 I think, then add fees from document translator on top of that.
You should also consider that different areas of Mexico require different things...blood tests?
Our travel agent says that DR is all of a sudden really popular, so costs may be higher now. Direct flights avail to Mexico and PC from Chicago, Milw.
You will be able to find a resort no problem in either location with things to do for adults & kids. In my own experience day tours & activities available in each locale are comparable.
To me it always seems like going to Mexico is like an extension of the US. I really enjoy feeling far away and appreciating the local culture of DR.
