Destination Weddings Discussions

Vote on my destination!

All of a sudden we're 3 months from our wedding date and we haven't booked yet!!! It's just the two of us, we'll do the included/simplest package and will be doing all the legalities there. I want a place where I can just lay on the beach and drink rum all day, he'd like a few activities also. I think we'll end up with a place where any activities will be booked separately, not anything the AI already offers. Dates are late March/early April.

So, help me out! Here they are in order of my favorites, along with my hesitations for each. Not sure if they're clicky, my computer is weird today - my favorite, but may bore FI - too far a flight, expensive - It's not on the sand, and I hear the beach may not be our style - Too big for my style, but very nice and affordable - too big for my style, but seems very nice.

And as much as I'd love other suggestions, at this point I've made a spreadsheet with 40+ options and finally narrowed it down this far. I'm so overwhelmed!!

    If you look under the excursions on the activities page for Cocos hotel there are quite a few options to keep FI busy if that's what he wants :)

    I picked the first one only because I heard everything is beautiful there. However, if your FI might be bored, you may want to compromise on another location. Do they have any activities outside the resorts he would enjoy doing?? I couldn't read to much on it because I'm at work. Good luck with your decision and keep us posted!

    I don't know which one to pick.  I am wondering what your FI's favorite resort idea was.  Also, don't forget if you are going to get legally married at your destination, don't forget to check into everything.  I know that Mexico and Dominican Republic are much harder to get married in than say Jamaica.

    I also picked Cocos Hotel. It looks beautiful and I think you would be able to find enough activities to keep FI happy.

    Love love love the first one. And I agree that it looks like there are plenty of options for your FI under 'activities'. I see zip-line canopy tours, jeep tours, snorkeling options, ferry to barbuda etc etc....maybe you could email the hotel and see how easy it is to schedule excursions through them.

    Which Zoetry are you looking at? The one in Cabo is really small. Even the one in the Riviera Maya only has around 90 rooms!

    I've stayed at the Caves before and it is GORGEOUS and very unique. I picked Cocos Hotel though because it looks pretty awesome! :)
