    sorry, i don't have the answer to your question, but i DO agree with you that some of the things they charge us for are silly, and the amounts are often just ridiculous! seems like they try really hard to keep us all within their pre-fixe options.

      I think jesmcan was originally going to do the Ult Luxury Package, so it's possible they may have let her substitute since it was already on one of the filet options. (just my guess)

      but yeah, that price is ridic

          Yes originally when I was doing our recption with the Ultimate package they told us that we could just add a few jumbo shirimp to the plate with out an extra charge. That price they gave you is ridicoulis!! I would call them and say you just want to add a few shrimp not a platter.

            Thank you! I am being passed off to the Mexico coordinators now...so hopefully they will give me a different answer. I told Aja I only wanted 2 shrimp on each plate, she said that was still $15. I think they have lost their mind. I'm hoping it is mis-communication between Michigan and Mexico...I guess time will tell! :)

            She also told me it was $20 per person to upgrade to warm appetizers instead of the cold ones. I pushed back on that 3 times telling her how ridiculous that was and she finally said she was looking at the wrong line and it was really only $5 per person to upgrade. I still think $5 is more than it should be....but at least it's reasonable!

                  Does anyone know how far it is from the Royal to La Cueva del Chango? I can see on the map that it only looks like a couple blocks away, but how big are the blocks!? :) My grandparents are coming and I was just curious if it truly is within walking distance, or if we will need to get taxis or a shuttle or something. Does anyone know if the resort has a shuttle? We are hoping to do a dinner at La Cueva del Chango the night before the wedding by we don't want to do it unless we can make sure everyone has transportation if it is too far to walk.

                    Just curious how many of y'all are upgrading to the hot appetizers? I was thinking of it but not sure if that's an extra cost I want to add on.
