There is a great little ice cream shop right across from John Gray's restaurant. All flavors are homemade and their banana ice cream is awesome! Better option that, say, Haagen Dazs which you can get at home!

Cenote Cristalino, I'm not quite sure where it is exactly, we were recommended by a couple at the hotel who tried the day before. Took a cab straight from the hotel. About 20-30 mins. Not much in terms of fish, but beautiful "jungle" surrounding. Not many tourists.

 

If you haven't gone already, dancing at the Blue Parrot (5th Ave) & drinks at Alux cave bar/restaurant (short cab ride from 5th Ave) - not great food or drinks particularily, but kinda neat being underground in a cave having a drink =P

 

Coba was interesting too. amazing view from the top.

 

 

Have a Happy Wedding!

Cenote Azul-- from Playa del Carmen it would be like a 15min cab ride, should be on your right-- not far past barcelo maya resort. GORGEOUS cenote. small, and rather unknown. it was recomended to us by locals. only $6 pp. when you get into the water little fish swarmright to you, felt like they were kissing my toes- so weird. but well worth the expreience!

I really loved Xel Ha!!!!
They have the zip line, biking, lazy river, snorkeling, cliff jumping (had to push my FH because he was a chicken!) and some great restaurants.
We chose to pair it up with Tulum since they are close to eachother...you can spend a whole day at Xel Ha, but dont really need to.

    • 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.
