Wow, I'm happy I found this place....it seems full of support and useful tips!
Was hoping to get your advice on resorts...My fiance and I are planning a Varadero wedding for August 5-12, 2012, but are having trouble deciding on a resort. Our travel agent highly recommends the Iberostar chain, which some of our close friends also recommend. We've looked at the Iberostar Varadero, Laguna Azul and Alameda and they all seem nice. The Iberostar Varadero is coming out on top, but this is based purely on tripadvisor reviews, etc. Has anyone been there recently? In fact, has anyone been to all 3?
Also, what is the typical cost for these resorts in August from Toronto? The agent quoted me over $1600 for the Varadero, which seemed a bit much to me...Does it make sense to wait a little longer to book (am told by TA that prices will go up tho)?
Thanks for your help!
