Mexico Pricing friom Vancouver? Over $2000???

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

thanks for tall the feedback! We ended up getting quotes for Now Jade and Dreams Cabo that came in under the $2000 mark from Vancouver in November 2012. So we'll be choosing between those two. The other resorts like Dreams Riviera Cancun have just jumped their prices up way too much!

Hi McLecker,

 

Just wanted to give you a heads up in case your agent didn't tell you but the waters in Cabo are not swimmable as there are very strong undertows.  It is a beautiful destination but many people are unaware of this.  If you're more of a pool person but don't need to get in the water, this is a great place.  However, if there are lots of kids or you happen to like going in the ocean you may want to choose somewhere in the riviera instead.  Just a thought!

Hi Lola2012,

 Yes thanks - I'm aware of the beach and honestly that was the biggest (and only) draw back for this area. But when I put up a note on facebook asking if anyone had been to Cabo and if they recommended it - I got overwhelming YES responses. People seemed to love it in spite of the beach/water issue. My FI and I really struggled to that factor, but in the end, the resort looks gorgeous (has great reviews), the weather is supposed to be excellent, Dreams does fabulous weddings, and the price was right. So last night we picked Dreams Cabo! Really appreciate the feedback and insight. Here's hoping we love it as much as we think we will.

I'm concern about Flight + hotel pricing as well. It seems that prices are quite high for traveling to Riviera Maya from Vancouver. My budget for DW vs local wedding is looking rather similar.

How far in advance should we be purchasing the flights? Our wedding is in February and I am looking for the best prices for the guests, I was told buy in September by the wedding planner of the resort?? Or should I be buying sooner??? Seems like prices are very high and there is still a lot of time ahead of us but feb is a high season too!

I have been narrowing down resorts and asking TAs and photographers for quotes just to see how much I need to budget for certain times of the year. I want my budget to be realistic so I tell them my situation and they can generally give you an approx quote. If its just flights then I normally use Skyscanner or Kayak to check approx prices. You still have this year to research on prices. As 2015 approaches then you can see if the prices are good. I don't think there are too many options for direct flight from Vancouver down to Cancun area (if that's where you are heading). I think only Sunwing, Air Transat and WestJet fly direct.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
