Hahaha. It was just a dream! Definitely don't want to spend that kind of money either. We should definitely throw some affordable ideas out. Has anyone been to Grand Sunset Princess? I remember @veryvaleros pictures and it looked beautiful and I think the price point is pretty good.

No I haven't but know some who have and enjoyed it. Very beautiful. If I had a choice id rather stay in Cancun as I've never been and hear the night life is fun!!!

But I do know Cancun sometimes can come at a cost. I did find some decent prices for January 2016 though.

@calgarybride2015 I've always stayed in Cancun with the exception of Moon Palace which is it Puerto Morelos.. But it's pretty close to Cancun. I'm definitely happy with Cancun if we sway that way. Sun Palace is nice and Adults only and there's a ton of other gorgeous resorts.

Anything that's close! Akumal was not haha
We looked at Rui Cancun for its proximity to the night club area of Cancun.... But I was solely driven on that so I'm sure there are some great resorts :)

Temptations? Hahahah Kidding!!!!!!!!!

Ah man... A BDW trip would be so fun!! I definitely have the travel bug and I would love to jump in on this but we have booked our honeymoon / 10 yr anniversary for April in Jamaica. We are staying at Sunset at the Palms... We stayed there once before and it was awesome..."treehouses" !! It's now a Adults only...That's also when we have decided to start to some baby making ;) Plus even though I would love to go to Mexico because I have never been the husband has some irrational thing against going there lol ...I plan on getting there one day so I'm working on him.. Maybe it have to be on a girls trip

Juan and I are totally on board. I do agree with @calgarybride2015 that $4000 per person might be a bit much for us hahah, especially if I end up going back to school (which i'll hopefully find out about in the next couple of months). 

 

Early 2017 works for us and I'm sure we can find a good price point for a resort. I might be biased but the Karisma resorts are really high on my recommendation list and some of their resorts are at decent prices. The food alone there is just amazing. 

 

I have been to the RIU Cancun. It's nice, it's close to all the clubs which is a huge plus. We walked there every night and back. The good thing is that if, for example, we stay at the RUI Palace las Americas (right next door to RIU Cancun) we can go visit and eat at any other RIU. With so many people I don't know if that will even be an advantage or if it's just better to stay at our resort every day and save a couple hundred bucks. With that said, the beach is much nicer at the RIU Cancun than the one in Palace las Americas. 

 

I would also love to go back to Playa del Carmen. We didn't have a chance to go visit the town when we were there, but we can always rent a car while in Cancun and drive down there for the day. It's not a big deal. 

 

Adults only works for us, we're not planning on kids for a few years so we're good. But if anyone wants just a regular family resort, we're ok with that too. 

 

Should we make a fb group? Maybe it will be easier to keep the discussions more organized and we can have polls about price points/resorts/locations etc. I can open one up.

@TinkerSofi so nice to hear from you. Tell me more about school? I started back In September then got on full time with AHS so life has been busy!

I was just throwing the Rui out as one we considered. Totally open to anywhere that's affordable lol. And that said as mentioned night life close by may not be necessary as we will have our own party!!!

Since there would be lots of us I'm totally ok with adults only. Shawn and I went to one alone and found it a bit quiet - I think we were there during a geriatric convention though hahahah

I told Shawn and he got all excited. He's like what if everyone invited friends too - we could have like 200 people bahaha ok stop dreaming :)

Meant to say...
Shawn and I are pretty easy going. Anything under $2000 PP, ideally under $1800 solely cause we've never paid more but are open for the right resort :)

Typically for us it's easier to travel on breaks/holidays as the kids dad doesn't live here so they don't miss school but I realize those often drive up cost so we are flexible with whatever works for everyone. They'll be in grade 6 and I think at that age missing some school isn't going to hinder them!! My kids are on a year round calendar so tend to push normal holidays (i.e. This year xmas break ended mid January)

Otherwise a beach, sun, sand and great times is all we care about :)
