    I've read posting about the Riu having the option of bonfires, does anyone know if you can have a bonfire at Dreams? Thanks!!

        I looked into this option as well. I was interested in doing a s'mores station at the bonfire. Instead of the bonfire, I'm doing casino night, but for the s'mores, I think Mariana quoted me $8pp. However one of the girls on this board had mentioned that the fire pit where they would have the bonfire would not be so big.

                Lisa-from what I have read on the forum I don't think the Riu will let you bring in your own photographer but I'm not positive

                  yes daniela said the have covered the bonfire pit and put a stage on top and you can hire fire dancers in the same area. you are correct you will be paying a guest day pass for any of your vendors not staying at the hotel. But that is normal for an all-inclusive. We have Juan and a few others and will be paying for them as well..

                    Hi Ladies.

                    About the "law against bonfires"..hehehe... There's no such law, the thing is, Mexican Authorities charge a fee for doing a bonfire on the beach also, the place that sets the bonfire has to clean everything up and leave it stainless clean... So, because of that, some places decided to drop all the bonfire options.
                    The fire dancers are a great option too.

                    Cheers

                      I to wanted to do a bonfire and Daniela told me that I was not able to. About the photographer. I am hiring Juan as my photographer as well and Daniela told me that I must pay for a day pass and also pay Riu's inside photographer for the first hour. Does anyone know anything about this?
                      Also, I was told that that the reception must end at 11:00pm.
