Thanks for your detailed review. I am thinking of using Ajua and love the Church in Playa Del Carmen. Question: where do you and your guests stay? Was it troublesome to go between hotel/church/restaurant?

I am also meeting with Ajua after reading your review and speaking with Samantha there. I saw that you stayed at occidental xcaret - was the beach (heard it's sort of bad..) okay?

We stayed at the Occidental Grand Xcaret. It's only a few minutes from downtown PLaya del Carmen. Transportation between hotel and wedding was really easy as we hired private vans (4 total, I think) to take us to and from wedding. We coordinated all of this w/ Ajua. We just told them how many vans, what time, etc. If you want you can also have a white SUV for you and your fiance.
As for the beach at the hotel, i thought it was fine. This was actually our second time in the Riviera Maya. We stayed at another resort the first time and though they had a stretch of white sand and beach, I HATED the beach. It was SOOO rocky in the water that I didn't even want to go in. So needless to say, we went in the pool for the entire stay. As for the one at Grand Xcaret, though it wasn't a "stretch of white sand and beach" I liked how it was all sandy and more "swimmer friendly." So I was completely okay with the "lagoon" instead of a "stretch." So it's really up to you. I know most people like the idea of a "stretch," but it just wasn't that important to me as long as the it's swimmable.

And also what actually did she do for you besides call the vendors and set up the date and times?
