This is my first post here on BDW! I have come across a dilemma and am in desperate need of your opinions and advice. I have fallen in love with photos that I have seen of weddings taking place at Xcaret eco park. Although I went to Mexico last month for sight inspections I didn't visit the park as at that time I was not considering it for the wedding. During the site inspection we settled on Moon Palace for a late December, 2014 wedding. However, seeing the photos now I am very strongly considering changing everything (we haven't signed any contracts yet) and having the wedding at the park instead. My two caveats are that I don't like the Occidental Grand Xcaret connected to the park and would need to a find a different hotel that's located nearby, and I would need a Jewish ceremony to take place at the park and being that the park is famous for its chapel I don't know if it's possible. However, I did some research and have come across the Ponds location which I think might work for a Jewish ceremony.
If anyone has any insights could you please share your thoughts on this? Is it worth having the wedding at Xcaret? Would it still be beautiful if we had the ceremony at the ponds (all of the videos and photos that I've seen were from the chapel)? Has anyone seen the ponds location and can shed some light on it? Also, I don't even know whether or not it is possible to have a Jewish ceremony at this park so would love some insights on this as well. Lastly, if anyone can suggest a hotel that's conveniently located and is nice I would appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!!!
