oh yeah isla de la pasion ! i loved it and it was my fi's top choice venue. someone just asked me about it on weddingbee so ill paste my reply (it might have been you, who knows!)

 

we visited at night (had a few problems with our schedule) but it was really lovely. completely private, really soft silky sand.

 

i think the menu is buffet only rather than plated, and it mentions a lot of seafood but they say they can work with food requests.I didnt go a food tasting as we ended up going with a different venue

 

Its all sand so you would have to rent a dance floor for dancing. There is a lot of space so can be adapted for bigger/smaller weddings. The palapa is pretty spacious and there are plastic sheets that can be pulled down in the event of rain or strong wind. In terms of bathrooms there are quite a few, I think was 3 sets of double bathrooms for both men and women. they are approx 3mins walk from reception site

Private event times start from 5pm, which should give enough time for a ceremony in daylight.You can probably have a day time wedding too but there may be people around on the day trips

 

The only drawback is all the guests would have to spend one night in cozumel - as the boat takes people from la isla to cozumel and by then it would be too late to get the ferry (well, if its a late reception) i dont think it would be possible to get them back to playa del carmen/cancun but not 100% sure

The lady who worked there (i think her name was meliza?)was really friendly and she took us to the little cabin where the bride and groom stay on the wedding night. Its a 2 bedroom cabin all made of wood with a sitting area and and hammocks outside. Its sort of rustic but romantic.has AC and fans

 

we actually saw a small wedding there and it looked great. they had a DJ playing and some simple flowers and it looked great!

I think itd be a really great place. If we hadnt already have chosen a hotel in playa del carmen (so logistically getting guests back would be hard), and my father didnt turn green every time i mentioned boats we might have chosen it

Hi Emma,

 

We live on Cozumel full-time and have been to Isla Pasion several times. It's a pretty cool venue. Very private, with an outstanding beach.

 

I wouldn't worry about where your guests stay, there are several hotels/resorts on the north side of the island that can accommodate everyone. Check out Hotel B or the Coral Princess. The Melia and Playa Azul are also on the north end near the dock of Isla Pasion.

 

The great thing about the location, which you can't get on the mainland, is that the beach faces west and you'll get beautiful photos with the sun setting over the Caribbean.

 

Just like these that we shot a little south of Isla Pasion last Saturday night.

 

Don't hesitate to contact us if you need more information about Cozumel.

 

Best of luck,

Jennifer

, Hi, Thanks for the info! I have now chosen a hotel in playa del Carmen too.. Because of the boat times all my guests would have had to leave the island at 8pm which was to early, a shame because it looks perfect!

    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again 
    • Hi! Well, I stumbled on this forum, and then when I realized it was run by a travel agency (while being really impartial- the fact that there are reviews for OTHER agencies was a good sign!) I didn't look any further! Their website, where you can fill out a contact form:  https://www.wrighttravelagency.com/ Babs actually sent me an email on a Sunday (she had been out of the office on Friday) so that's how we started- I was so impressed right off the bat! You may not get Babs, but I can only imagine that the entire office is amazing! We're getting married at Azul Riveria Cancun (formerly Sensatori). We chose it because we have kids coming. We actually just went down for the Brides Dress Rehearsal (A really cool program Karisma Resorts do, where they give you a special price/couple to go down and check out some resorts, meet wedding planners and vendors etcetc- it's great having never been there to leave knowing and seeing it all- http://www.memorablemomentsweddings.com/Memorable-Moments-Weddings-Dress_Rehearsal.cfm) I'm pretty laid back- it's Mexico. Where ever you are, how ever it's decorated, whatever the weather is- it's going to be gorgeous. I wanted a destination wedding so that I could not worry about things! It will be what it will be- and regardless of what it is, MEXICO! lol I did just see a post about travel guidelines for the DR (Below). Just something to consider, it seems really restrictive! Have you been to the DR? I'm struggling at the moment with people who are afraid to travel to Mexico, which I've always found funny because I've been 6 times and I'm still alive! AND only 3 of those times were on resorts! I felt the least safe of all my travels in the DR, so it's just something that I like to mention!
    • Hello, oh thank you that’s great, how can I come across her details? where are you getting married and how have you found planning so far? 
    • I've had nothing but an amazing experience with my TA, Barbara (Babs) Vong- she actually works for Wright Travel Agency- the ones that run this forum! I'd suggest reaching out to them first- they're the experts!   My wedding is in February of 2020, and we started planning around August 2018, for what it's worth on a timeline.
