For any brides who have had or who will be having their reception at the Tucanes Pool/Bar, where will you and your bridal party wait to be introduced at the beginning of your reception? I feel a little nervous about not having this figured out ahead of time. Is this just something we are supposed to scope out once we are there? Or, will the day-of wedding attendant tell us where to go? How will the DJ know when we are ready to be introduced? Any advice/feedback would be helpful. Thank you!

Really, brides from any location could chime in on this one... I didn't mean from just Tucanes :)

Another question... I'm working on a list of things to talk about with our on-site wedding coordinator during our meeting, and I'm curious if there are any questions/topics any previous brides might have thought they missed that would be good for me to bring up at the meeting? Or, perhaps for any of you ladies that are headed there soon, do you have anything you thought of as super important to talk to the coordinator about?? Thank you!!

 There are so many things to do. If this is your first time to Mexico you should try and get out for at least one excursion. There are a lot of tour operators who have a large office just outside the main lobby that will be able to help you with booking if you want to do it there.

Some things to do:

-Xcaret: a nature park with underground rivers/caves that you snorkel through. A beautiful lagoon at the end with tons of fish. Night time they offer a traditional Mayan ceremony with fire/acrobats/etc. They have a swim with the dolphins area (extra $)

-Xel-Ha: another nature park, with a larger lagoon to snorkel in. Also there is a small 'train' that runs up to a natural spring river (much cooler, clear water) which you can ride down on an inner tube. Very relaxing. They also have a swim with the dolphin area (extra $)

- Party and shop in Cancun or Playa del Carmen: both cities have wild night clubs and great markets you can wander around in

- Ruins at Tulum: at the bottom of the 'Mayan Riveria', about an hour drive south are the Mayan ruins of Tulum. They sit right on the ocean and are very pretty. All the ruins are roped off, so you can't actually climb or touch them. Take a swimsuit, one of the most beautiful beaches is located there! Also there is a wonderful market for Mexican souvenirs, crafts and lunch.

- Ruins at Coba: these ruins are situated about 30 minutes inland from Tulum. They are in the middle of the jungle and some of the ruins you can still climb on. Also Mayan ruins.

- Ruins at Chichen Itza: if you're really into history, these ruins are amazing! However it is about a 2 1/2 hour drive each way. This is an Aztec ruin, a very large site.

-Xplor: an adventure park. You can do zip-lining, underground rafting, drive an atv.

-Cancun underwater museum: (I have not visited here yet) It is a snorkelling/dive park, where they have sunk a number of statues and other things of interest. I have been told it tells the history of the Mexican people through over 400 statues.

-Deep sea fishing: most of the tour companies will be able to arrange this for you. They take you out and usually are trying to find you a marlin. (just note if you pull the marlin into the boat you are required under Mexican law to have the fish mounted. Very expensive. Otherwise you just cut the line and it swims off) Most of the boats will also offer to cook up your catch for lunch!

-ATV and Jeep tours: there are numerous companies that offer this. Lots of fun driving through jungle roads.

Sunset boat tours or party boat tours: again numerous companies offer this. (don't forget your sunscreen for the party boat...no shade!)

LOL! Ran out of room above.

 

Anyway, try to get out at least once. The Mexican people and the area are simply beautiful. We have used a number of tour companies over the years, but I can vouch for Sunwing, Transat, Lomas being good.(ie. arrange transport, being on time, and having a representative at the hotel)

 

If you have any other questions, just ask. I have been down to the Mayan area over twenty times, and we have down most of the parks at least once.

 

Have fun!

    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
