      I guess they don't send the same 3 packages to everyone !

      The website states that you get the caribbean trio for 1 hour for the 3rd package which is $2400 (it used to be only 45 minutes)


      If someone is looking for photos, there is a forum on the Dreams website. If you check under the Q&A section, theres a section on just weddings. Someone on there posted this slideshow of the Tulum wedding set-ups. It's the same pics that the wedding co-ordinators send me in Word format. The slideshow is pretty basic but it gives you the info you need......

          We paid $500 for 45 minutes! And I thought that was insane! Funny thing is...these are the same Mariachi Band that played for FREE at our Welcome Dinner at a restaurant! They play there every night!!!

          I was turned off when I noticed it was the same people...felt very cheated On the flip side, it made for very good pictures!!!

              Do not feel cheated!! it works like this!! When the resort has musicians playing every night in their restaurants the price that they charge for playing in an event is not so high... so you do not have to pay what normally the musicians charges outside the resort!!

                I more thing!!

                Do not get confused!!!

                Mariachi (at least 7 people in a band) is not the same that a TRIO (3 musicians) and 1 hour means a set of 45 minutes singing and 15 resting!!!! watch out!!!!!
                Maybe you will never find out becuase you are not counting he time but your WC can ask them to sing longer for the whole hour and maybe they will....

                      We paid $350/hour for a trio.. but honestly I couldn't hear them and didnt' really get a chance to listen to them play during the cocktail hour so I have no idea if they were worth it or not!
