Info on Tucan/Quetzal for our honeymoon

Hi, my soon to be husband and i fly out to Tucan/Quetzal on the 20th August for 2 weeks for our honeymoon. Just wondered if there is anything we should know. I've read suggestions such as booking in at the restaurants on the day of arrival to avoid not getting a reservation but i was wondering if there is anything else. Also does anyone recommend any day trips, i've read good and bad. Any information would be very much appreciated.

This is our first trip to Mexico.

My husband and I will be staying at the TUcan?Quetzal this winter - our first time at that particular resort, but fourth year in a row to the playacar area. I can't give you any suggestions regarding the resort itself, but in terms of day trips, we loved Xel -Ha. We went 2 years in a row. It's nice for snorkelling (not too deep, if you're not experienced), there's the lazy river where you can float dwon river, there are cliffs to jump off, and many places to just sit in the sun. There is also swimming with dolphins if interested, and many other activities. If you go, I'd get the all inclusive package - it includes meals, drinks, towels, a locker, snorkelling equipment rental etc. It's a nice way to spned the day! Enjoy your honeymoon!

Congrats on your new life. You don't really need to make all your reservations the day you get there, just make them as soon as you can usually 1 or 2 days out is okay. Xel ha is very nice if you want to snorkel. You might contact Edventour Tours for a day trip.

Check in with Gustavos, the Olympus tour rep... He's in the lobby on the Tucan side by the Tequila shop. He was very helpful with arranging our tours and transportation to/from any excursions. Just maybe skip the Catamaya catamaran trip.
