      Cancun resorts are more expensive and crowed depending on the tourist season. What I like about Cancun  is checking the Mayan ruins and the ecological-parks. 


      Punta Cana, prices are more attractive. However, the historic town with beautiful architecture is 3 hours away..


      Both places offer great beaches and resorts..It comes down to the kind of experience you want to give to your guests and your budget. answer this question to yourself. If you are invited to a destination wedding and as a guest you would like to turn the weekend wedding into a great vacation, what kind of activities you would be the most interested?


      Keep in mind that some people love just seating at the pool reading a magazine or having drinks all day long. Others, are more into exploring the area or having both adventure and beach time..


      I recommend you to look also into Puerto Vallarta in Mexico or Puerto Rico in USA...

          I was considering both places too, originally preferred Punta Cana because there isn't blood tests. But ended up choosing Moon Palace in Cancun because we know it's gorgeous and the food is fabulous. Like everyone else said, just stick to the resort and don't go looking for trouble.

               I´m getting married in Cancun. The place is wonderful and it was also my concern but I´ve been doing some reading  and I don´t think there is any problem there. Needless to say you always have to be careful though

              Nan and Erik forever!!!

                We had the same decision to make. We decided to go with Punta Cana only because we had been to Mexico before but not the Dominican. This past weekend I was shopping for my bridesmaids and a wedding planner said she has been doing tons of destination weddings. She told me she has been getting lots of good reviews for the domincan but for some reason alot of brides are complaining about weddings in Mexico. She didn't elaborate as to what the complaints were but her opinion was that the Dominicans did nice weddings. I think either way you will have a beautiful wedding though!!!

                  Congrats and Welcome!  I wouldn't worry too much about what's going on in Mexico.  Most resorts have very high security and are often secluded from these towns, etc.

                      Congrats on your engagement, and I'm sure I'm not going to be the last to welcome you to the forum.  Like a lot of other brides-to-be, I too was deciding between Mexico and the DR.  The prices were more attractive in Mexico (being from Southern California) but after my FI heard about the blood tests and chest X-rays, he was not to keen on it.  We ultimately decided to to with Excellence, Punta Cana and we couldn't be happier with our choice. The planning has been very easy.  The WC has been great getting back to me, answering all my questions.  We have a lot of friends from New York who have been to the DR many times and absolutely love it there.


                      We also liked the fact that there are a TON of affordable excursions that are easy to book and they pick you up at your resort including zip lining, xtreme dune buggy rides, safari, etc.  We figured that there would be something for everyone, including the aforementioned casino option.


                      If you have any questions about the DR or Excellence, feel free to PM me.  Whatever you choose, you'll have an amazing wedding, it's your special day and it'll be perfect.
