We found Las Caletas through a photographers blog while exploring wedding venues shortly after becoming engaged. Once I started to read the reviews and saw photos of Las Caletas, I knew this venue was for us. Puerto Vallarta is such a special place for my (now) husband and I and we couldn't be happier with our experience of having Las Caletas as our chosen wedding venue.
From the moment we interacted with Blanca over email, we knew we were in good hands. The entire process was stress free, which is exactly how it should be as a bride and groom. I have heard countless times from brides that they were happy that their weddings were over because of how stressful it was. Blanca took care of us from beginning to end as well as other staff that we interacted with through email. All of our guests commented about how they had never been to a wedding that was more seamless than ours. A wedding should be stress free and enjoyable throughout the entire process and Blanca did just that for us. The overall cost of the wedding fit into our budget which was a huge plus.
When my bridal party and I arrived at the terminal the morning of our wedding, we were greeted by Blanca's assistant who took care of us. She was such a sweet and personable individual and was checking up on us as we took the boat out to the beach, carried my dress and bags, and made sure we were escorted first on and off of the boat so we were the first ones to see Las Caletas that day. We took the early morning catamaran out to the beach and my entire bridal party and myself were completely speechless as we walked through the jungle to our hospitality suite. We were greeted by our butler Salvador, who waited on us and made sure we were well taken care of leading up to the wedding ceremony. The hospitality suite was absolutely beautiful. As an interior designer, I was in heaven! It was comfortable and had everything we needed including a spacious hair and makeup set up, a bohemian style bed which showed for perfect photos, an outdoor jacuzzi tub that was running as we arrived and a beautiful bathroom including a waterfall shower. The photo ops here are endless and we could have relaxed and explored the beach and venue all day.
Blanca had me send her inspiration photos leading up to the wedding including decor and florals and she executed them perfectly. Some of the florals I wanted were not in season but she was able to communicate to the florist what my vision was and they turned out so lovely. I wish I could have taken them on the flight home with me! I was more than impressed.
The food was DELICIOUS. Our guests were raving about it. The drinks were always flowing and the bartenders always had mixed alcoholic beverages waiting for us to snag them up. If a mixed drink isn't for you, the bartenders can whip you up anything you want! We opted in for the tequila table where one of the staff poured the tequila for us. Our guests kept taking shots after shots since it was close to the dance floor set up.
DJ Rafael was perfect and played nearly every song we had on our customized playlist. He mixed the songs perfectly and incorporated lights which made it feel like a big dance party. He had all of our guests out on the dance floor the entire evening and always got a good sense of how we were doing and would mix the music accordingly to keep the party going. It isn't often that you get to dance on the beach with all of your best friends and family.
The catamaran ride home was just as fun as it was dancing on the beach! It was about an hour ride back to the marina and we didn't want it to end. It was honestly the funnest day and night of our lives and there isn't one thing we would change. People keep telling us how it will be impossible for anyone to top our wedding and it is all thanks to Blanca and the amazing staff at Las Caletas! We will definitely be doing our vow renewals here. If you are hesitant about booking your wedding here, don't be. You will not be disappointed.
