Suggestions for comparison across Mexico (cancun area), dominican republic and puerto rico!

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I just got engaged, and my fiance and I are interested in doing an early spring wedding somewhere warm and sandy :-) We are looking for relatively easy travel from NYC for ~200 people, so have been considering cancun area, DR and puerto rico (and more loosely thinking of grand cayman, USVI, key west?)

 

Would LOVE stories and suggestions from people who had similar considerations!

 

Thanks,

Diana

Hi Diana,

 

Congrats on your engagement!!!

 

My DH's family and friends all flew to Cancun from NYC. Other than the fact that our wedding was right after Hurricane Sandy made a mess of things, they were able to get flights fairly easily. I think most of them came down on JetBlue. 

 

I would suggest pricing flights to the various destinations and see what makes the most sense for you & your guests. Also consider what type of resort & wedding you're looking for - all inclusive, resort-based wedding, off-site wedding, etc. 

 

The challenge with Key West is that everything is crazy expensive, and suppliers are somewhat limited. My DH's mother plans weddings for friends and family down there, and I've never heard anything but frustrations when she's dealing with vendors. 

 

I love, love Puerto Rico too. That was in our initial list of choices. There was only one, maybe two all inclusive resorts there, so we ruled it out pretty quickly (AI's were high on our priority list when we were choosing resorts). 

 

I like GC and the USVI too - but some of the same challenges as PR with the lack of all inclusive resorts (and I found GC to be pretty expensive when I've been there). 

 

Just some things to think about. The most important one is to narrow down what you & your FI want, and then plan from there. Good luck!

You could go to Key West and Grand Caymen on a wedding cruise to cut the cost there. DR has tons of all inclusive hotels. The options are endless, this website is great for info on the resorts.

Good luck hunting!!!
