Frequently Asked Questions

What are the visa and/or passport requirements for Mexico?

  • Travel to Mexico requires valid passports, even for US Citizens. Please ensure that your passport expires after October 3, 2020 (6 months from the date of entry into Mexico). Mexico has no visa requirement for US Citizens, but you will be asked to fill out a FMM form (Mexico's visitor permit) on the plane or once you land. Once you get to immigration and customs at Cancún airport, the agents will give you the bottom half to retain until you leave the country. It is VERY important to keep this secure until you leave Mexico.

Is there transportation available between Cancún International Airport and the resort?

  • Yes - discounted roundtrip airport transfers have been arranged by Pooja and Casey for bookings made through the group reservation block! Further details and a booking link for your airport transfers will be shared close to the wedding date!

  • The resort is a 30 minute drive from Cancún International Airport

What time is check-in and check-out at these resorts?

  • Check-in time is at 3pm and check-out time is at 12pm. Reservations made through Shaadi Destinations will be given priority on early check-in times as we will make requests directly with resort management. Early check-in is not guaranteed, but the resort will do their best.

  • Guests are welcome to stay on property all day the day of check-in and check-out. Bags will be stored with your butler staff when you don't have access to your room.

Can I stay for just 2 nights?

  • While most destination wedding guests choose to stay 5-7 nights when flying to Mexico, we understand there may be certain limiting factors. Unfortunately, group discounts are only valid on a minimum of 3 night stays. If you absolutely must stay 2 nights, please contact us at hello@shaadidestinations.com so we can find the best rates possible for you. Booking through Shaadi Destinations allows for certain group benefits to be conveyed and allows for the best rate possible.

Are kids welcome?

  • We chose Generations Riviera Maya because of the endless list of activities that will turn us all to children - so children are encouraged! Generations provides non-stop entertainment for the kids with themed characters, the Eko Kids Club (Sunday, Monday: 9 am - 5 pm & 7:30 pm - 11 pm, Tuesday - Saturday: 9 am - 5pm & 7:30 pm - 9 pm), Little Eko Chefs program (3 pm on weekdays), and much more!

    Karisma also includes baby amenities such as strollers, cribs, bottle sterilizers, bottle warmers, changers, baby monitors, pack n' plays, sterilizers, baby baths, baby robes, baby slippers, and high chairs.

  • Events will take place at Generations Riviera Maya so that kids may attend!

  • Adults staying at Generations Riviera Maya or Xolumado are more than welcome to join the festivities throughout the day or dine at any of the restaurants at El Dorado Royale!
