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!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
