I am newly engaged and we just started looking at destinations for our 2013 wedding. I could use some advice!
We (and most of our friends) live in NYC, while our families both live in the DC area, so I started by searching for places that have plenty of direct flights from both NYC and DC. That narrowed the list to Jamaica, the Riviera Maya in Mexico, and Puerto Rico. We're probably going to have around 50-60 people, including children, so any resort that is adults-only is out. Finally, we're looking for something more secluded and natural; all-inclusive megaresorts just aren't our style.
Based on these criteria, I came up with the following list:
Vieques, Puerto Rico
I've been to Vieques, but I've never been to Jamaica or Tulum / Riviera Maya area. Can anyone tell me about the general feel of these two places â€” are they very touristy? Crowded? Is it a "spring break" kind of environment, or more rustic and natural?
Also, are there any other places that I've missed? Thank you so much in advance!
