I secretly cringe when a well meaning acquaintance or client states, “You book destination weddings? You must be able to travel everywhere, cheap.” While the golden days of travel agent discounts and free upgrades have passed, this romance travel agent can still travel for less if I’m willing to work a little while on “vacation”.

One such opportunity arose recently with a chance to visit Cancun & the Riviera Mayan on a Destination Wedding FAM trip through Fun Jet Vacations. A FAM trip, or familiarization trip, is travel agent lingo for a “working vacation”.

  Cancun & the Riviera Maya are two of the best destination wedding & honeymoon locations for both value & style.

As a romance travel expert, this was a great opportunity for me to personally view exotic wedding venues & romantic honeymoon resorts. Funjet was able to show me a few properties, introduce their new destination wedding planning department, and I took notes. It was a great exchange for a four night Sun & Sand retreat in a junior suite at the Excellence Playa Mujeres. This is a 4.5 star, all-inclusive resort 20 minutes west of Cancun. The venue is just across from Isla Mujeres which is another tropical vacation hotspot.

In my next several blogs, I invite you to join me on this four day marathon of romantic vacation properties and beach weddings locations. This was a most enlightening journey where I discovered that not all 5 star, luxury, all-inclusive resorts are created equal.
