January 2012 prices

Recommended Posts

I have been searching for a resort in the Playa Del Carmen area and I have not found any prices under $1800/person all inclusive. Is this normal? We are looking to have a destination wedding for the end of January 2012 but it seems way out of our guests budget at that price. I have been told that the prices are inflated for 2012 but this seems crazy! We will be a group of about 150 guests and I figured that there would be some sort of discount or incentive for such a large group. is this unreasonable? I have looked at every resort in the area and it all seems the same. Does any one out there have any suggestions or know why prices are so high? Is it just me? Any input or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

I have heard the same thing. A couple of weeks ago the tax was cheaper by 200, now it's very expensive.

Also, we've changed our date from January to December because it was $1000 cheaper per person.

Kateks, have you talked to a TA?  My wedding is in Playa del Carmen 1-6-12 and we were able to get a rate of a little over 200/night/guest for an AI resort

Thanks Ladies.  I think we may end up changing our date as well.  I would like to hold out and see if the prices drop but I think it may be too risky.  What if the prices don't come down...yikes!?

We are working with a TA and this is what I am being told by her.

Thanks!

We are working with a TA as well and she said the same thing.  She said promotions will probably come out in May or June for January.  We are trying to keep it under $1500 per person for 5 nights including transportation and airfare (from MN).

I'm in the same boat too.  The prices I'm getting for Feb/Mar 2012 are close to $1800 including taxes.  I'm looking for something $1500 max per person taxes included.  They keep telling me to wait, but I don't want to let it linger.  On another thread a few people suggested booking the hotel and flights separately that way you can nail down the wedding date.  I'm still torn.

We are planning to book at the Moon Palace for the end of January and havent set anything in stone yet but its roughly 1600 for 5 nights including flight. Our TA said it should drop also this summer but it will most likely not go up, that's a good thing!

So the original plan was to "wait it out" but we've been doing that since March and there has been no change in prices.  Our guests are antsy to book and need to know what it is going to cost them.  We are now looking at switching resorts so that guests can book now at a reasonable price.

I totally know what you mean.  I think I get bombarded by guests at least once a week asking what the plan is.  I feel really bad that I haven't been able to get them an answer yet and it's totally stressing me out.  I've actually scraped the Jan - Feb months and started looking at Apr/May.  I got a really good quote for May; however it falls over Mother's Day (May 13, 2012).  It's not the best timing, but definitely not a deal breaker for me.  The other option for you is to book with the higher rate (just so you have a date) and tell your guests to do shop around before committing.  I'd think the Jan 2012 prices would be more reasonable by September this year.  Good luck!
