AH!  That just reminded me that I need to do my Tulum photo tour!  I have pictures looking in all directions from the gazebo.  I will try and get those up ASAP so you can see the path.  You will walk through the "jungle" and that's when your fiance will see you.  Very pretty!!

 

As for what to look for during a site visit, definitely the three resorts.  See which one you'd like to stay at, which one you want to get married at, and then try the restaurants that are available (if you can).  So Coba - portofino, Akumal - Frutos del mar and um... the one attached to it that I'm having a brain fart and can't thin of!  Tulum - gran torguga and tequila. 

 

Check out the pool reception areas.  Akumal is the main pool directly across from the lobby.  Coba is the Jacuzzi pool by Portofino.  Tulum, I don't actually know!  Ha!

I'm glad you like it!  Hopefully it'll get your guests super excited for the awesome time they will have!

 

I will be photographing a wedding there in August, so if anyone has specific pictures they'd like to see added to any of the three photo tours, just shoot me an email at faberphotography@charter.net

 

Thanks!

Hi everyone!
 

Just over 70 days to go for....starting to have to get down to the nitty gritty of the planning. So I will be asking you all for your help more regularly. Has anyone else had trouble reaching Eugenia lately? She has generally been great about getting back to me (at the latest, in a week), but I have not heard from her in almost 20 days! 

 

Also, speaking of excursions, does your booking for the excursion typically include transportation?

 

Thank you all for your responses. It is so helpful to read these message boards. It provides a huge amount of relief to know that there are others experiencing the same things that you are. 

 

Angie :)

Hi Angie!

 

Yup, the excursions will typically include transportation.  The only exception is if you book it yourself.  For example, my husband and I booked the Xel-ha experience online prior to leaving.  You get a pretty good discount, or at least at that time we did, if you prepaid online.  So since I didn't book the excursion through the tour operators we had to get our own transportation.  However, Xel-ha is just a hop skip and a jump away from the resort so we took the public vans that run along the highway for $2 each.  We had to walk from the highway to the entrance, but it was a pretty short walk and definitely worth the money we saved.

Hey ladies! I'm officially excited to finally say I am booked for my wedding in tulum with 66 guests and counting. I am booked for dec 7th 2012. Anyone else going to be there around the same time? Unfortunately with many airline errors/screw ups I was previously booked as an azul sensatori bride but with pricing of the wrong year being the main error I made the switch over to tulum and couldn't be happier. I'm currently booked at the hammock location for my ceremony but I was curious if tulum had a beach area ( or something like an arch) other then the palpadas area. I'd love to hear back from anyone. Have a wonderful day ladies!!!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
