    We did Secrets Aura in Cozumel. I was not impressed BUT it was a newly aquired hotel and the concensus seemed to be it was not up to Secrets standards yet.

     

    I second what

    @Sunsetmrs13:  said regarding Maroma.  It’s their signature property and if you’re going to go the Secrets route I think you should consider it.

    @JsDragonfly:  Awesome!  One thing we are looking forward to is the fire pits.  We saw them on the brochure and thought they were cool.

    We’re looking forward to just chilling on the beach mostly, but that excursion downtown sounds great too.  Was there a lot of cool local art for sale?  We’d like to take home something that we could display in our home once we return.

    @mrs_pudding_pop:  If beach chillin is what you are looking for, you will be so happy!  Definitely make it over to the private island.  It is sooooo relaxing!

    And speaking of local art, my husband and I actually came across a street artist that did small 8×10 paintings on particle board for about $10 each.  They were all various beach/island scenes and we just loved him.  He just painted away the whole time while we were browsing.  We ended up buying two paintings and he signed and “touched up” the paintings.  A couple of yards down the way, there was another guy painting on canvas, but we loved the uniqueness/rustic look of the painting on particle board. 

    Who knows if he is still in the same area, but, if you go downtown, head to Senor Frogs, then turn and walk down the back area along the docks, where the cruise ships are.  That is where we ran into the artists.

    I can’t wait to hear how your wedding/trip goes!  Let us know.  I was just in the Bahamas again this past June (stayed at a different resort) and had an awesome time again!
