Wedding in Playa del Carmen (Kool Beach? WP: Maria Tripaldi? HELP!)

Recommended Posts

So after searching for destinations ALL OVER the Caribbean we decided on Playa del Carmen after we saw pictures of Kool Beach Club and some TTD in a cenote.  However, now that we're putting all the costs together and everything it's becoming overwhelming and scary, since we're not planning on traveling down before the wedding.  Has anybody had their reception at Kool Beach Club and used Maria Tripaldi (from weddingsinplaya.com) as their wedding planner??  If so could you tell me your opinions with her and how it turned out.  Also anybody have pictures of their wedding done by Maria??  After talking to a couple of planners we think we narrowed it down to her but would like some reassurance.

Also, if you had your wedding/reception in Kool... did you use the place the whole time?  Did you have an open bar the whole night?  We found the drinks to be the most costly and we would like to see if there's any way to cut the price down without having to shorten the party just because of the cost of the drinks.


GREATLY appreciate all you help!!   Thanks!!   ;)

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
