    Hi Everyone,
    I apologize if there is already a thread on this (new to forum) but I'm struggling with our DW location?
    We're planning Feb/March 2011 wedding and although we've narrowed it down to Panama, Cuba or DR we're having a hard time finding a resort.
    The constant nice weather in Panama is a plus but I've heard mixed reviews about the Royal Decameron. My fiance and I love Cuba but the weather is an issue.
    Any suggestions on resorts, either ones you've been to on holidays or actual weddings?
    Thank you,

      Unfortunately, I've never been to these locations but my suggestion is to look through Tripadvisor and other general hotel review sites (as sometimes there are wedding reviews hidden in there). I also asked around to all my friends. Although many of them didnt have information, I did talk to THEIR friends - some of whom had destination weddings - and got really great recommendations. Finally - I would call up travel agents that specialize in these hotels - many of them know the hotels very well and can answer your questions directly.

      Good luck!

        We went to Punta Cana last February and the weather was gorgeous. It was really hot but not too humid, it didn't rain once and except for a few windy days everything was perfect. I also have a co-worker who took a trip to Panama a few years ago and she's still talking about it- she swears it was the best trip she's ever done. Hope this helps!
        Loving married life!

          Varadero is still pretty cool in February, but I've been to Holguin, Cuba, in February and it was really nice (Holguin is more south). We decided on the DR though because I've never been there.

          Good luck planning and welcome to the forum!

            Thank you for all the great tips! I've been a regular on Tripadvisor lately! haha.
            I think we've got it narrowed down to Panama or DR. (still finding the best rate for the 3 or 4 resorts we like).

            Renee, the Majestic Colonial is actually one of our 3or 4 in DR we liked, it is beautiful!

            All the best in your plannings also!
