    We're not cheap. We are just saving for our wedding, BUT I'm flying in from NY and he's flying in from Australia. This is a last minute trip and our first and only and we need to find a place to stay. Does anyone know of hotels, villas that will offer complimentary or budget accomodation?

    Reason I ask is our tickets are $760 each for four days. yikes.

      i don't know about budget accomodation but you may get lucky with renting a condo. try ..VRBO® is Vacation Rentals by Owner® Vacation Homes Rentals by Owner click on Mexico, PV and then wherever you'd like to stay. they tend to be cheaper per night and can make your own food b/c kitchen.

      ok, not to sound snarky but are you serious about the free accomodations? i have never heard of hotels, resorts or villas that are in the charity business and not for profit?

        Yes, believe it or not its true. I know it sounds crazy and I didn't think it was possible, but a friend of mine who is the former director of tourism said that hotels and villas are willing to compete for your business so they happily comp rooms or offer a significant discount for a night or two in hopes that you book out their space. So I set out to ask around and low and behold she was right. I found three really nice places (one is right on the beach) that were willing to comp our accomodation (one said for a week and if we decide to book our wedding there). Crazy but true.

        We've decided to wait till after the holidays to head down to PV to have a look.

          Also, for those of you looking to get married in PV like myself, just ask about comped rooms or discounts...cause they do exists.

            I thought in the orginal post you were looking for a place that would let you stay free during your wedding. You are looking for a place where you can stay free for a site visit? I am pretty sure I've heard of people getting very low rates for a site visit.

            Have you thought about not doing a site visit? A lot people on the forum never do a site visit & everything works out fine. I'm not planning to do one.

              Please post an update after your site visit. I would be very interested in hearing about your findings.

                Our site visit for 4 nights was comped by our hotel (Occidental Xcaret)... but it was in RM so I guess I am not much help. I think so long as you contact major chains and ask to speak to someone in charge, ie, manager of sales, you will atleast get a really good rate :)

                  It's really not that ludicrous, I have heard of resorts that do this. If you may have your wedding there some places will comp things for you. (Just like Galit said) Call the ones you are interested in and try to make a deal. As they say, closed mouths don't get fed.

                  If that fails and you aren't fussy, try a hostel:
