riviera maya questions.. weather and resort qs

Recommended Posts

Hey guys...

 

so im thinking of doing it at riviera maya jan 2009

 

I was talking to some people about the weather in Riviera Maya in Jan.. and they said that you cant really go swimming in the ocean bc the waves are just too vicious.. is that true? anyone been there or had a wedding there in jan and can tell me how it was?

 

the second question i have is resorts.. i was looking at riu palace riviera maya, riu palace mexico, and dreams tulum... its hard to choose considering ive never been there? any advice.. im having about 100 people and i want a more formal elegant wedding.. im thinking of having it in a gazebo overlooking the ocean, at sunset with candles.. i can picture it in my head, just dont know which place would be the best for what im looking for...

 

any advice would sooooo greatly be appreciated!

I don't know about the waves, but january is peak season & will be more expensive.

 

There is a lot of info about those resorts on this forum that should help you decide.

Hello!
January is high seasson... the ocean normally is great but the weather is a little bit more "cold" or "fresh" than the rest of the year, specially during the night.

If you want a more formal elegant wedding between those 3 resorts i will suggest to go with the Riu Palace wich is in the Playacar hotel zone in the heart of Playa del Carmen. Otherwise there is Dreams Tulum wich is beautiful but totally different style and an hour from Playa del Carmen. Those 2 hotels are totally different.

Think about your guests and where do you want to be? at Playa del Carmen or near Tulum? Because those 2 are totally different and away one from the other.

Best Regards, Yazmin.

I definitely think the waves/ocean depend on what resort and area within the Riviera Maya you stay. We were married at the Iberostar in March and the waves were perfect! I would definitely look under the Mexico thread to find lots of information for the different resorts! Happy planning!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
