Have you considered the Playa del Carmen area? It is close to Cancun (so easy for traveling in and out of) but out of some of the Cancun chaos. Tickets from the US are reasonable. The beaches can be big resort beaches or secluded totally by yourself. I went looking through wedding videos (http://www.playaweddings.com/video.php) for ideas of where looked good for me -- sometimes photography doesn't tell the whole story. I liked that there were kind of all options available -- big resorts, quite beaches. Perhaps a good choice for you?

My daughter was married at the Fairmont Mayakoba, about forty miles south of Cancun. The resort will not be like others that your guests may have visited and the management and staff were fabulous. You won't need a planner as the resort has a department that provides those services and your guests will love the place. We found that our guests were happier spending the travel dollars on a place they might choose for their own vacation (and some made a vacation out of the wedding) than they would have been had we selected a place that wasn't as nice.

Here is a link to my post about how we went about planning the wedding:

My review is on Page 16 of TA reviews on the Fairmont Mayakoba:

Let me know if I can answer any questions.

Hi,

Congratulations! I got married at Sandos Caracol Eco resort in Playa del Carmen. They did an outstanding job on our wedding. It was a perfect day all and the wedding itself was under $3000 with all the little extras (bloodwork, ministers cab, tips...). It was a huge resort but they made us feel like their most important guests that day. If you want details feel free to email me at careycu2@yahoo.ca

Have fun choosing!
