But it seems that all TA's that we have been trying to work with, are giving us the run around about rates for next year. We are getting married at Secrets Maroma Beach April 30th, 2011. I dont know why this is so hard for them to get rates for! I got one quote for $340 pp/per night!!! Ridic! My wedding planner is currently working out a contract with a new TA who is quoting us $245 plus a $25 booking fee pp. But still ALOT better than the first quote. The rest of the TA's we've spoke to told us that we need to wait until September to get prices!!! This is insane.. I keep telling them that this is a WEDDING, and that we have 70 guests. I just dont get it.
Hopefully this last TA works out and we can get this contract signed and keep on moving foward. we understand not everyone will be able to come, but we'd also like to be able to give them some solid information (price wise) before they can make that decision... I mean this is why we sent out save-the-dates a year in advance!
just agrivating. And we already signed contract with the resort for our wedding and details, and put our deposit down with them, and the STD's are out, so we are past the point of changing resorts.

I`m so glad I found this thread! I`ve been having the same stresses as everyone else. My fiance and I got engaged on Christmas day and have now started to seriously look at setting a date for our wedding. The only problem is that we`re getting nowhere with our TA.
It was so hard trying to pick a resort since we`ve never been to Mexico before so I just told her my requirements which sounds like everyone else. $1500 taxes included for a 4.5-5 star that allows for some water activities and good food. Instead of narrowing it down by price, she asked us to pick a bunch of resorts that interested us and she`d get us quotes. She is the one that told us the best time would be the first two weeks of May. (Her logic was based on process of elimination. Because prices would be high in December for holidays, then February is reading week, then March break, then Easter so that brings us to May. Which is before June which is hurricane season)
So based on that, the best quote out of the 4 that she`s sent so far is Puerto Vallarta for May 7th. It`s $1589 all inclusive for Dreams Puerto Vallarta. Does anyone know if that`s a good price from Calgary

For 5 days/4 nights it's less then $800pp (all inclusive - minus airfare, since you can't book yet).

And the other travel agent told me that prices are looking good and that she should have something close to my goal to quote me for next week (I'm aiming for $1500 - $1550 taxes in from Toronto). Easy decision for me if that quote comes through next week...
