Formula for a happy marriage? It\’s the same as living in California…when you find a fault, don\’t dwell on it.

Vamanos a Mexico August 11, 2006

Yes folks. It has happened. It only took us three months, but Chris and I have finally secured a destination for our destination wedding. YAHOO!


Nestled on a lovely strip of white beach inbetween Cancun and Playa del Carmen is the ‘little’ resort El Dorado Royale. I say ‘little’ as it is actually a lot bigger than I was originally looking for, but after closer review we noticed it had all the elements we wanted in our destination:

(1) Resort – all inclusive. Plethera of food, drinks, and activities without you ever needing to take your wallet out of the safe. There is also a spa for those moments you truly wish to pamper yourself. One thing of note – this is an adult only resort which I know is good for some, but could be inconvenient for others. It was a tough decision as we tried to get everything on our wish list – but realized that was impossible so we had to make compromises.

(2) Accomodations – Main resort has lovely ‘reasonably priced’ rooms. There are also individual bungalows (casitas) available for those who wish to live like P. Diddy for a day (or seven).

(3) Location – most everyone can get there on a direct flight with others not having more than one layover. It is also just 30 minutes to Cancun and 15 minutes to Cozumel / Playa del Carmen so we can take road trips if everyone felt the need to leave the resort for a day.

We hope to see you there!
