Yes it is for the whole day, lunch & dinner included & then you stay there at night & they have a big mexican fiesta show with traditional mayan dance.....supposed to be really good. It is probably the only excursion I will do so want to get all done in one day.....snorkelling, swimming with dolphins & the show....Richard is also going to swim with sharks there as well for an extra $53. Xcaret is the same kind of park as Xel-ha but they don't have the show in the evening so figured we may as well go to the one with the show.

 

Feels so close now, I booked my nails & highlights for the day before we fly & we booked the minibus to take us to the airport....OMG feels really real now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) :)

Hi ladies thought I'd check in after my hair trials tonight. Well all I can say is I'm glad I didnt pay for it! :-( I came out looking like I was going clubbing, with a messy up-do so sorry won't be posting photos. Only one of my bridesmaids like their hair, so we are going to hunt for the next bridal night and try again. Nicyx you have been a busy bee :-) can't wait to see photos of you post box

Oooh - Im just so excited for you girls!  I havent anything exciting to add but just wanted to say that!

 

Oh and also, I have been to Cancun for the last 3 years on the spin and EVERYWHERE takes US dollars.  Mexicans look generally disappointed if you give them paseos as the US exchange is better for them.  Especially in taxi's and for tips too.  Hope that is some help?

 

Starting to panic that I havent done enough!

Hey ladies just checking in and saw a couple of points might be able to help you with:

1. They still accept peso and dollars like they always have done. If u use your credit card that will be calculated in dollars.

 

2. For those of you flying with Thomson we took our letter with us when we checked in about the additional luggage and there were no quibbles over anything but be warned....  You have to spread your extra 10kgs each over 2 bags ie; you will end up taking 6 bags if you use all your allowance and the 2 additional bags to your suitcase have to weigh exactly 5kgs each I cannot tell u how many times I rearranged our bags.

 

3. You WILL be charged for anything you are over on the way back.

 

4.  The dolpins is a complete rip off compared to what it was when we went 3 years ago - you no longer can pay to have the photos they take printed off - they only put them on a CD and charge about $30 per photo.  Its about $150 for an adult and thats if you go direct obviously more with the tour operator - our hotel was a stones throw from the marina at Puerto Aventuras so the rest of our guests booked direct.  We didnt swim with them this time. They also do too many things now to try and cash in on the photos rather than swimming etc with them.

Hi Josie, nice to have you back on here :o)

 

What a rip off with the dolphins!! Can't believe you can't just buy a photo. Our friends went in 2009 and they got a photo so this must be a recent thing .... booooo!!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
