But what I was wondering why do you have to pay for the Caprice package, 500.00 for the private reception (Baja), and then meals charged by per person-
Can someone please explain to me, why am I paying for the Caprice package and plus meals per person-I am so confused-plus we are getting married in the Catholic church down there so we won't even be having a cermony there-
Good questions! I have a few different responses - let's see if I can make this clear as mud!
All of the packages; caprice, royal, and basic include a 1 hour and 45 minute dinner at either the Steakhouse or the Mexican restaurant. This includes your meals, alcohol (beer, champagne, and wine), table and chair covers and that is it. Nothing extra (as far as the reception)
NOW, if you want something for the whole evening you have 2 options.
1. You can rent out the Mexican terrace ($500) from 6:30 - 11:00. this still includes your food, alcohol (beer, wine, and champagne) and table and chair coverings. You are paying the $500 to have that space for the 4 1/2 hours. I believe you can also rent out the whole restaurant for $1800.
2. You can choose a private area (Baja Norte, English garden, a Ballroom, etc) for $500 plus the cost of food (because it's not in a restaurant).
For instance; I had the Royal package (only 40 people), had my reception in a private area - Baja Norte - $500, and then had to pay a per person price for food. The per person price can be negotiated a little bit if the Mexican Terrace is already booked.
