Questions + Answers

  • How do I get to Isla Mujeres?
    We will be providing transportation from the Cancun Airport to the Puerto Juarez Ultramar Ferry terminal through CARM Transfers. They'll be sending you information on where to meet your driver. You will need to purchase roundtrip tickets from Puerto Juarez to Isla Mujeres (either online or at the ferry terminal). Once you arrive on Isla Mujeres, there will be plenty of taxis to take you to your lodgings. If you've rented a golf cart, you'll be able to pick it up near the ferry terminal.
  • What do you have planned?
    I'm glad you asked! We will be hosting a Welcome Dinner on Thursday evening, our Ceremony & Reception will be on Friday, we have a beach day/fiesta planned for Saturday, and Sunday will include a boat party and Goodbye Dinner. Check out the Schedule of Events page for more details.
  • What's the dress code for each event?
    Welcome Dinner: Whatever you want, as long as you can dance! Ceremony & Reception: Think fancy beach attire. We want everyone to be comfortable but also looking their best! Need some inspiration? Check out our Pinterest board! Recovery Brunch/Beach Day: We recommend packing a beach bag for the day that includes your swimsuit, sunscreen, beach towel/sarong, sunglasses, and some clothes to change into if you plan on going to any shops/restaurants. Night on the Town: Isla is a pretty laidback place, so don't feel like you need to dress up. Something comfortable to dance in is advised. Yacht Excursion: Same thing as Recovery Brunch/Beach Day. Goodbye Dinner: Keep it casual, we're all friends here.
  • Is Mexico safe?
    Mexico is absolutely a safe place to travel through. Like anywhere, be aware of your surroundings, keep your important possessions in a safe place, and use common sense. You might see police and military officers around Isla Mujeres. This is totally normal - there is a naval base on the island and they are trying to discourage any cartel activity. Overall, Isla is one of the safest places we've ever traveled.
  • Can I bring a plus one?
    By design, our wedding is going to be a small and intimate affair. However, if you're traveling solo, we are totally down for you to bring a guest. Just please tell us with plenty of notice so we can get an accurate guest total.
  • Do I need to stay all four days?
    In an ideal world, we'd love you to, but sometime's life gets in the way (and that's okay!). If you need to arrive later or duck out early, we totally understand (though we will miss you!). Just let us know when you'll be arriving and departing so that we can adjust our headcount. On the other hand, you could also extend your trip to Mexico and make a proper vacation out of it. The sky's the limit!
  • What's the deal with meals?
    Isaac and Jordyn will be providing one meal a day where we'll all eat together: a welcome dinner on Thursday, the wedding reception on Friday, a recovery brunch on Saturday, and a farewell dinner on Sunday. Beyond that, you'll have a chance to check out all the great eats on the island (hint: al pastor tacos never disappoint). Your field guide will also come with some personal recommendations.
  • What are the beaches like?
    Isla Mujeres has some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the area. On the west side of the island, the water is clear, shallow, and calm, so you can splash around all day without worrying about waves or rip tides. Playa Norte is the best beach for hanging out all day and Playa Centro is great for watching the sunset.
  • What about swimming?
    Don't flip - you'll be able to dip. We'll be staying on a beautiful island with plentiful beaches. However, the main villa (headquarters) is on the rocky side of the island (facing the Caribbean Sea), so swimming is not advised. Thankfully, the villa does have the largest private swimming pool on the island, complete with a swim-up bar, as well as a 20-person hot tub.
  • What should I do between these fabulous events?
    Whatever you want! Everyone will have plenty of 'free time' to do whatever tickles their fancy. Some options include: snorkeling, scuba diving, boat tours, bungee jumping, yoga classes, museums, sport fishing, jet skis, massages, art walks, shopping, walking trails, live music, dolphin sanctuaries, zip lining. Or just catching up on some beauty sleep in your bed. We're not here to judge.
  • Are pets allowed?
    No, our furry friends are going to have to sit this one out (Bert included).
  • What about kids?
    Also no - this is an adults-only affair, if you catch our drift (we'll be too busy doing taxes and buying stocks to deal with children).
  • What should I pack?
    We'll be including a complete packing list closer to the event, but don't forget... Sunscreen Sunglasses Swimsuit(s) A good attitude A sense of adventure Passport (SERIOUSLY, is your passport expired? You might not think it is, but Jordyn's was. You should just double-check. Right now.)
  • What if I forget something?
    While Isla is a Caribbean island, we aren't going fully feral. There are pharmacies, a grocery store, and 7-Eleven's on the island that should have everything you could need. That said, you will be paying an 'island premium,' so it's best to bring your necessities.
  • What if I hate fun?
    You're not invited! How did you get here? You gotta go, dude.
  • How do I know if I'm staying in the villa?
    Space is very limited at the villa. If we have not asked you if you'd like to stay at the main villa, we are unfortunately unable to host you. However, there are PLENTY of awesome lodgings on Isla. Check out our Travel & Stay page for more info.
  • How/when can I pay for my room?
    We will be paying for a portion of the villa. The owner of the property, Maureen, should have sent you an invoice for the remaining balance. Please let us know if you run into any issues.
  • What room am I staying in?
    We'll be randomly assigning rooms before you check in and will make sure you know where you'll be staying.
  • What will my room look like?
    All suites have private entrances, a king bed, a double vanity bathroom, a living room with a full size futon and TV, air conditioning, and a granite kitchenette with a sink, coffee maker, refrigerator and a microwave. There will also be a housekeeper that stops by daily to freshen up your room. You can find more details here.
  • What are the common areas/shared spaces?
    The villa has two large living spaces that include full kitchens, couches, TVs, washing machines, and a bathroom. Both of these areas open up to the patio which has covered outdoor seating. The villa has the largest private infinity pool on the island, complete with chaise loungers, shade structures, and a swim-up bar. In addition, there is a hot tub close to the ocean and a small front yard for lawn games. All of these areas will be shared and available for everyone to use. However, there may be times during your stay where access will be limited for caterers, vendors, etc.
  • When can I check-in/check-out?
    We'll have more info as we get closer to the wedding, but check-in will be around 4 PM on Thursday and check-out will be around 11 AM on Monday.
