    Did you get a chance to try the food at each though? That seems to make or break some places for a lot of vacationers.

Give yourselves a good few hours between each property (to allow for travel time and the tour). Some took longer than others, of course because we either loved it or knew it was a no pretty much right away. All the WC's we met with were very helpful. They toured us around the resort, pointing out possible wedding/reception locations, restaurants, rooms, and anything else. We left each one with a package that we could review later. We didn't have to pay for anything- the WC will leave your name at the entrance to the resort. Just make sure you get the name of the WC at the property so that you can let the security know!

      Hope this helps!
      Wow!! 8 site visits! That is awesome! May I ask what made u choose Secrets Capri? I am seriously considering this location, but am having a hard time sifting through all the information out there..... Did you get to try the food there?

        What I did when I went on my site visits was I stayed at cheaper hotel to save money. Then we walked up and down the Cancun strip with a book from Liberty Travel with all of the hotels. If they were AI or if it looked really nice we stopped. If there is one that you absolutely want to see, I'd make an appointment just to be on the safe side. Even though we didn't need appointments for most of the resorts, there were maybe 2 resorts where the WCs were too busy to see us and we had to come back a few days later.

        FI and I narrowed down our list to 3 - and then just e-mailed the WCs to make appointments. We were going to stay one night at each, but decided that we'd rather get a feel for our first choice hotel by staying and eating in the restaurants for two nights.
