There are several room categories available. Please review and let Jenn know the dates and room category and we will book through our membership so all you are responsible for is the all inclusive cost and not the room and all inclusive. This will be much less. The rates do change as there are promotional rates that come out, but they are running from $197 per person per night to $415 depending on the room category. This is based on double occupancy and the difference is in the all inclusive costs is related to the room types and what other amenities come with those. Again don't book through the hotel or online as the rates will be higher. We will also work with you around what is easiest for you to book and pay for your rooms so please talk to Jenn.
This is what I will need to do with our membership:
For your bookings, in order for you, and your guests, to get your preferential rate, they will have to be made with me, your reservations executive, for which, we require a rooming list, that details the travellers information, as follows.-
Once the reservation is made (room on hold), we do require payment as soon as possible, or we can come up with some sort of due date, to receive full payment. Also, you can provide an email address for each room, so that the person in charge of that room, can send the payment information, by filling out his/her according form.
Our wedding is at 4pm on February 13th so please feel free to book around your schedule and timeframe. We would typically look at Saturday February 10th to Saturday February 17th, but you are welcome to book more or less days. We will be there from February 6th to February 17th as we need to be there earlier to do bloodwork and the details for the civil ceremony.
There are so many different things to do on the resort or off the resort. Cancun is a door to magical adventure tours in the Mexican Caribbean. Fly over the jungle on a zip-line, swim with dolphins, dive into the many "cenotes" (natural sinkholes) commonly found in the area, have fun in the wonderful theme eco-parks around Cancun, dare to enjoy a thrilling jungle tour that will take you for a ride on your own speed boat through the mangrove channels, and immerse yourself in the mystical Mayan culture that can be admired in Mayan ruins destinations like Chichen Itza and Tulum.
Looking for things to do in Cancun and Riviera Maya?
This site gives you an idea of what is available, but there may be other sites that offer better prices, plus the tour operator on site can assist with those also.
Where to eat off the resort for a late night snack or during the day when you are out and about.
The Surfin Burrito is one of the best places to go in Cancun for affordable Mexican cuisine. This open-air café is known for its DIY tacos and burritos which allow you to tailor the dish to your own taste, ensuring a pleasant meal for everyone. Behind the bar you’ll find a selection of drinks available, including cocktails, juices and smoothies made from fresh fruit.
There are many options for flights. Recommend to set up an alert throug Kayak or another site to watch for the best prices. I have set up an alert for KC to Cancun and watch the flights on a regular basis.
If possible direct flights are the best as you don't need to go through customs at a connection on the way home. If you are ok with the connection allow at least 2 hours in between to get through customs and to your connecting flight.
Cancun weather in February marks the time of year where temperatures start to rise after the very brief winter. Average high temperatures during February are a pleasant 84 degrees with average lows around 67F - with these low temperatures being experienced mostly around sunrise.
Of the 28 days of February an average of 21 days will deliver temperatures in excess of 80 degrees, although we will have to wait a further month before we experience our first 90 plus day.
Round trip transfers based on flight and date information are available from several vendors. We will provide recommendations based on schedules.
If your room is booked in the Adults only Turquoize Tower the round trip transfers are included.
A couple options that I have started to price out are the following, but we will have more so don't worry about getting these set up until much closer as we will be looking at the most reasonable options.
Best Day Travel-$36 per person round trip
Cancun Travel Group- $70 per person round trip

Cancun is located in Quintana Roo, where Mayan culture shines on every corner. Surrounded by the breathtaking Caribbean Sea, soft coral sands, and the striking shade of blue that emerges from its crystal-clear waters, a visit to Cancun will make you wonder whether you are in a dream or else.
Cancun is a tropical paradise that remains one of the world’s top tourist destinations. This comes as no surprise when you consider how much Cancun has to offer.
If you’re looking for a place with great weather, pumping nightlife, many accommodation options and some of the coolest activities in Mexico, Cancun is where you want to be.

Persons arriving at the Cancun International Airport from outside the country must:
1. Fill-in and present the “Customs Declaration” form.
2. If you have anything to declare, your luggage will be inspected.
3. Those with nothing to declare will press a “traffic light” button which operates at random. A green light means “pass without inspection” and the red means “stop for inspection”.
Carl and Jenn met online in 2006. We started dating in February and have been together ever since. Our first trip to Mexico was in 2007 where we went to the Riveria Maya and stayed at the El Dorado Real resort. In 2008 we went to Cancun and stayed at the Royal and we have been going back every year to Cancun and Playa Del Carmen.
Mexico has been a place where there has been an endless amount of fun activities, nightlife, excursions and great food and fun. We have met some great people from all over the world and continue to keep in touch and meet up each year to vacation.
We scuba dive in Cozumel, Sky Dive in Playa Del Carmen, Zipline in the Riveria Maya and have enjoyed the shows and clubs at night. The people in Mexico are so warm and welcoming and to be included in the culture has been a highlight. The sun, sand and blue water and waves captures our attention. The peaceful calm of sunrise and the sound of crashing waves with a light warm breeze is relaxing and removes the stress from our minds.
We love the beach and always talked about getting married on the beach. This wedding is where we love to be and want each one of our family and friends to enjoy this and be with us on this special day. We want it to be a celebration and look forward to another memory in Mexico to share with those who mean so much to us.
Info packets are being mailed out with some general information and a folder to keep all your information. If you have questions please let Jenn know as one of the biggest questions is how to book the room and the cost. We want to make this the easiest for you and to get the discount through our membership. The one piece to think about is they provide different promotional rates throughout the year so the rates may change. The other thing is there are certain rooms where there are only so many available.
We sent out our save the dates to family and friends so you can put the date on your calendar. More information will be coming as we get closer to the event, but we wanted to give you time to plan and hope each one of you will be able to join us.
