    Hi Everyone!

    Talis and I recently started planning our wedding for May 2011. I have never been to Mexico, so I had to trust my TA on choosing Riviera Maya. She said its a lot less hectic than Cancun, but still beautiful beaches and greenery. Can anyone tell me if this is true?

    I've narrowed it down to these 4, so if anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear it!
    Azul Sensatori (my current favorite)
    Dreams Riviera Maya
    Hacienda Tres Rios
    Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda

    Congrats to all of you...and happy planning!

            Hi Jaime! We had to pick a hotel without doing a site visit as well....We did a lot of internet research and read through this forum before choosing to have our wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun. You will find a ton of information on this forum that I am sure will help you with your decision. Happy Planning!

              Welcome to the forum Jaime! All four of the resorts that you have chosen are fantastic. And your TA is correct, Riviera Maya is less hustle and bustle and I think even more beautiful than Cancun.

                Congrats and welcome to the forum! I've never been to Riviera Maya, but I hear it's beautiful. I would have considered it myself, but my dad is scared of Mexico... (he watched too much TV lol). Happy planning!

                  Congratulations Jamie and welcome to the forums! The Mayan Riviera is very beautiful and nothing like the hustle of Cancun. You will love it!
                  I can say that the Azul Sensatori is one of the nicest resorts on your list! Good choice. Do not go with the Blue Bay... as far as picturesque places... we rank that on the bottom of our list.
                  Have fun with all your plans!!
