        This sounds like such a great idea b/c sometimes I feel like a welcome dinner will be too much like my reception and my guests won't have the newness factor. But then I worry that some guests may have sea sickness and I would hate for anyone to feel left out. And what if some people don't like snorkeling? I wonder if there is alternate things for them to do on these mini cruises?

          This is also the group that is doing my wedding - sounds odd, I know! But they had so many requests to do weddings at Las Caletas that they started offering them! Anyway, I've read a ton of great reviews; but I don't know all of the details. It's basically a cruise, dinner and an show on the beach! Vallarta Adventures also offers many other excursions (scuba diving, whale watching, dolphins, etc.).
          Yea...I heard cool things about the Rhythms of the Night as well. We are going to do that one and the Canopy Tour with the families! I am super stoked about the Canopy Tour!! Zip-lining through the jungle up to 50mph!! That is going to be awesome!

            The canpoy tour was great...my cousin was married in PV 2 years ago and before his wedding all of us relatives spent a day zip-lining it and we had so much fun...they also (now this was 2 years ago) had tequila liqours to taste and then end which we all found was a good way to unwind, since a few of us were a little scared after going (a couple of my cousins hated heights!) Anyways enjoy it...we will probably go again this time around as well!

                I feel like the canopy tour is going to be ridiculously sick! (by sick I mean fabulous, just in case no one understands my NY words). Your guests are going to have so much fun. I am so jealous!

                  What a great idea for a WD and it is the perfect way to get acqainted versus sitting at a dinner table. Love It!
