My fianc© and I chose Riviera Maya because it was relatively close to cancan (according to our travel agent) and because a lot of the people on our guests list are in their mid 20's and early 30's we wanted to be sure there would be plenty for them to do. We also picked the resort we did because it is all inclusive, very modern, and has creative ceremony options that are unique to that location. I have recently developed an addiction to this website and have read the threads about this resort. The only negative thing I have heard people report is that the beach is not as clear and clean as they would have hoped. But, because I don't plan on having my ceremony on the beach....that was not a deal breaker for me. Another thing that helped me narrow it down was the size of the resort. I found that some were just too large and I don't want my guest spending more time trying to figure out where they need to be than relaxing and enjoying their vacation.
Happy hunting, and let us know what you decide on!

Having a hard time narrowing the venue as people rave about all resorts in the RIviera Maya. As we are def trying to remain budget conscious... I welcome any ideas, suggestions, tips etc with anyone that is planning a 2013 wedding as well or has had their wedding there. The whole thing is definitely overwhelming.
