    Hi all!  I'm strongly considering the DRC...my wedding planner at destinationweddings.com has been pushing Karisma but I really like the amenities at DRC for my group.

     

    Does anyone know about the beach at DRC?  The Karisma beaches are all unswimmable and pretty small.  I'd love a larger beach where people can actually swim!

      I loved DRC, but I didn't love the service (or lack there of) during the planning part. It would take them 3 weeks or more to answer one question and I just couldn't handle it. I took DW up on their Karisma offers, but I agree, not having the water to swim in was a major negative for me. I found a lot more positives with the string of resorts with Karisma. I would recommend jumping around on this site and taking a look at the forums created for DRC and Karima, you should get a lot of great information. Happy planning and new year!

        Thanks for the input.  That seems very frustrating to not hear back from people for so long!  Hard choice to make...

         

        Best of luck with everything!

                  How funny Irishdonna! You must be super excited too! We bounced around a few dates- we didn't want it to be too close to either Thanksgiving or Christmas, and FI insisted on a Sat so... Dec 3rd seemed perfect- now I'm just hoping for beautiful weather : )  It's out of hurricane season (which we were happy about) but as far a rain, I guess it's pretty unpredictable there...fingers crossed though!!

                   

                  Good luck! (we have a lot of planning to do, lol!)

                    As far as weather, i've been to Mexico for the last 3 years and always been in Dec and all it's done is sprinkle a bit, so i'm thinking we'll be fine=)
