Crunched 4 time and still undecided PR or USVI???

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone...so a quick update. Since I was on here last we changed course and decided to do Mexico instead of the USVI or Puerto Rico.

We're getting married at the Dreams Riviera Cancun (which I've heard a lot of good things about on this forum and elsewhere).


In the end, Mexico was just more affordable because of the great selection of all-inclusives. For example, we got a 5-night all-inclusive stay at a great resort INCLUDING a basic wedding for what we would have paid for just the hotel at some of the islands we were considering.

A couple people have to get passports, and yes, we'll have to do the legal stuff here. But it's not as big a deal as I thought it would be. I hated forgoing the idea of an "island wedding" but in the end, this just made more sense.

So I'm super excited. I'm all booked, bought the dress and am waiting on the RSVPs. I'll be posting in the Mexico forums from now on. Thanks for all the great advice!

    • 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.
